I'm a little confused about that. I understand the concept of
fakeroot and fakechroot but I must be missing a piece of the
puzzle. I want to build up a Fedora install that I will
eventually boot into. At that point root should own the files.
How does this work if I run febootstrap as a normal user?

I did attempt to run febootstrap as myself, but got the same
error shown above.

I'm running on Ubuntu Lucid with the following versions:

    febootstrap  2.1-4
    fakechroot   2.9-1.1
    fakeroot     1.14.4-1ubuntu1
    yum          3.2.25-1ubuntu2

Should I try again from git?  Alternatively I'll just switch to
installing a VM (since eventually this will be that) but I'm
a longtime user of debootstrap so I'm pretty happy to find
febootstrap, assuming it will work for me!
