comment Faking a Linux environment without chroot
@Cedric For the python problem. Pip install --user <pythonmodules> definitely helped ;)

comment Faking a Linux environment without chroot
@DarthAndroid: virtualenv is a bit problematic since ubuntu does some weird stuff to their python libraries... We managed to run some of the libraries but only in a fachechroot environment after taking care of the symlinks. For the time being we just request the python libraries on the target machine...

comment Faking a Linux environment without chroot
@allquixotic fakechroot seems to work but we had to take special care of the symlinks in the directories. I'm a bit unsure about the performance overhead though.

comment Faking a Linux environment without chroot
There's actually a package called fakechroot. Which allows for the creation of a "fake" chroot environment (exactly what we need actually). I'm however hesitant since both fakeroot and fakechroot can produce a significant performance overhead since all system calls are redirected..

Nick: it's easier to create a sandboxed environment because replacing gcc requires also the replacement of glibc (or a recompilation) which then also has very broad side effects.

What's the standard location for PYTHONHOME? Is it /usr/lib/python2.7?
