[[Reinstalling GRUB]] seemed ripest for deletion, but one of the arguments voiced against deleting it was that the [[GRUB]] page didn't itself contain the instructions for chrooting (even in bare-bones form). My hope was that the info from [[Reinstalling GRUB]] could be incorporated into [[GRUB]] and [[Change Root]] and then the original page could be deleted. Thus getting some overall streamlining. My own inclination, as I think yours, would be to have the chroot instructions only on one page. But not having even the bare-bones steps for chrooting listed with the instructions for reinstalling grub was an argument for keeping [[Reinstalling GRUB]], then I thought OK, let's put the bare-bones steps onto the [[GRUB]] page.

Re recent edits on GRUB, Change Root, etc:

I started out pulling together info from several Arch and Gentoo wiki pages for a comprehensive Change Root guide at SuperUser. Then I wanted to import this more detailed info back into the Arch wiki, and streamline some of the duplicate content (chroot instructions were/are scattered around at several places).

Sounds good. The article is pretty up-to-date but I do see a couple things that could get updated which is probably what you see. From the top of my head a these two come to mind: original kernel being used (i.e. some devices may not function); I've mentioned this before, but do you know if /dev/pts need be added? --Gen2ly 05:17, 16 February 2012 (EST)
