tcp socket permission (chroot linux in android) steve 10/6/12 8:50 AM

I am using a debian chroot environment inside my android phone and try to install postgresql.

postgresql is using the user "postgres" but is unable to bind a socket.

I tried as root (on mysqld, because postgresql cannot be run as root by config). Working but a real security mess - ah, and i need postgre ;)

How to permit socket access for a user (inside a chroot)?

// example 

root@android-b:~# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=0.407 ms

root@android-b:~# su postgres
postgres@android-b:/root$ ping
socket: Permission denied

Many thanks!

Hi Steve,

Did you ever get this to work?
I'm running into the same issue, chroot into Debian Wheezy with postgresql-9.1:
