A small and Open Source comand-line tool that creates a fake chroot environment on Linux systems
A fake chroot environment is a Linux environment that allows unprivileged users to execute programs that require system administrator (root) privileges.
For example, with fakechroot you will be able to create a chroot'ed development environment where you can build packages using a standard user account (non-root).
For more details about how this tool works, as well as for some real-life examples, please check its homepage.
