I have just (a couple of weeks ago) started a project called
Fakeroot-ng. You can get the (extremely preliminary) sources from SVN on
Fakeroot-ng aims to achieve the same goal as fakeroot and fakechroot,
except it uses the ptrace interface rather than the LD_PRELOAD
interface, which, as you can see, has lots and lots of problems with
Fakeroot-ng is extremely far from being complete at the moment, but if
you will find it useful, then I can use the extra programming skills.
