Raspbian Jail Sucks Unexpected Install

Posted at — Feb 9, 2020

I’m not sure what hapened to me and all of a sudden I like chroot and jail. While jail is not available on OpenBSD it is a fixture in FreeBSD and making it’s mark in general Linux. And as I’m developing some ideas about putting Raspberry Pi devices in the edge of my network I’ve already developed some sandbox ideas for staticly generated websites.

But then this happened…

Unfortunately I also determined that Py2 was required for jailkit on OpenBSD. And during the install there was a warning that I needed to change a number of symlinks. While Py2 might have already been installed it was not installed when I installed jailkit.

Python and Perl are coming to their EOL.
