Hi,

I have rooted my nook touch and I am trying to install an ssh server on it. I found a document on github (I can't post links but if you google "github dropbear sft android" you should see it) which describes how to cross compile dropbear ssh on debian for Android.

But when I start the cross compiled dropbear on the Nook it tells me :

FATAL: kernel too old
[1] Segmentation fault ./dropbearmulti

What does this mean or has anyone managed to get an ssh server running without some sort of UI thingy like sshdroid?


Thanks,

Ralph.

Ok, I found out the libc I am using for cross compiling (from emdebian) is compiled for Linux kernel 2.6.32 while the nook is using Linux 2.6.18. That is why my cross compiled dropbear does not work.

Any ideas on an easy way of getting a dropbear executable for the Nook without recompiling everything?

NookManager has dropbear in its uRamdisk. You could extract it from there.

Ah, great idea. I tried to run it but it does not work (it says 'not found')
I even installed all the shared libraries dropbear requires from the uRamdisk to the nook but that did not help either...

I found an easier way:

On the nookdevs.com wiki there is a page called DropNook and it contains a compiled version of dropbear for the Classic. After some tinkering it also works for the Nook Touch.
