    I am using a Galaxy Tab 3 (GT-P5220). I am trying to boot into Ubuntu-13.04. I have managed to get all my errors fixed except for:

    chroot: can't execute 'root/': No such file or directory

    I don't know where to find and it's not on the bootscripts page.

    I am new at this, so any insight will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
