Wow! I found that interesting and may be a way to run closed source 
Linux utilities for FPGA from Latice and Xilinx as I have problems 
running them with GUI on Linuxlator.

Two quick questions:
1. Can I use it as non-root? How to chroot for/as normal user?
2. Did you use all X applications with no problems that way?

Thanks Pete! :-)
