that's the actually concept buddy the difference is that we try to keep a .img file which is nothing but a ext2 partition on file and use loopmounting for it to be available @ /data/local/linux or what ever name you may have.

the only difference i have is i did some simple optimization on code and segregated code in 3 files start stop and cmd so as to allow person to independently work on chroot image without caring about autoclosing of terminal window.

If I want to use Mageia in my X10i, what do I do?

I've got the all.img ready for mageia from ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/mageia/dist...nstall/images/

My phone IS rooted.

if what you refer to are actually partition images in ext2 file format all you need is to replace the img file from any of my script set with current file and all will be done.

OK. People in #mageia told me that there's no way that it could work, but I'll try. Any video yet that proves it working?

hold on buddy.

there are very few people here who are interested in pulling Linux on Xperia so progress will be slow, besides we all have our daily job+life too.

also this is the first time i heard about mageia,

I don't think anyone has worked towards rpm based distro's....
If i get time over this weekend i might give it a try.

however just look at my ubuntu + backtrack threads they all describe how i will be working towards its (there is no vodoo magic in here. all is already open.)
