    Command:

    switch_root

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           switch_root [-hV]
    
           switch_root newroot init [arg...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           switch_root moves already mounted /proc, /dev and /sys to  newroot  and
           makes newroot the new root filesystem and starts init process.
    
           WARNING:  switch_root  removes recursively all files and directories on
           the current root filesystem.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -h, --help
                  show help and exit
    
           -V, --version
                  show version number and exit
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           switch_root returns 0 on success and 1 on failure.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           switch_root will fail to function if newroot  is  not  the  root  of  a
           mount.  If  you want to switch root into a directory that does not meet
           this requirement then you can first use a bind-mounting trick  to  turn
           any directory into a mount point:
    
                  mount --bind $DIR $DIR

    AVAILABILITY

           The  switch_root  command  is  part of the util-linux-ng package and is
