Default Xserver chroot on TF700t

I've been running kexecboot native Linux for a while now and this has been a side project of mine since bumping into Linux Deploy. I really wanted to run my Linux and have my Android too... So, I got tired of trying to get Linux to run on the Android frambuffer and went this route... This runs pretty fast on my tablet. Resources seem way lower than a vnc chroot. And running on an xserver has more advantages. This is only tested so far with an image file and LXDE (I will be trying a microsd directory install soon).

XFCE4 and microsd partition install running fine also.

Use gparted to partition your microsd.

I used a SanDisk Class 10 16gb UH-I (8.5mb/s write and 24.5mb/s read) partitioned to 12gb fat32, 4gb ext4

These are just the settings I used that worked first for me. Play around, you can't hurt anything...

Download/Install:

Linux Deploy, Xserver XSDL and Connectbot

Setup Linux Deploy:

-Goto settings update environment
-On main screen click the install icon (it is the little down arrow)

---Under Deploy:
-Select your distro
-Architecture - arm7hf
-Installation type - File or ext4 partition
-Installation Path - change path and or file name or microsd partition (ex /dev/block/mmcblk1p2 for 2nd partition on microsd)
-Image size - at least 2GB (default is 4GB)
-User name - pick one or leave it
-Select components - check all
-Desktop environment - LXDE

---Under Startup:
-Check ssh server and Custom mount points

---Under Action:
-Go back to the top and select install.

-After it finishes click Start

Setup Xserver XSDL:

-Home button out and start Xserver XSDL
-Click screen immediately and choose 1900x1136(native) and font 0.5
-For those without a dock you may need to click "Change device configuration" at the top
when it first starts

Setup Connectbot:

-Home button out and start Connectbot
-ssh: usernameyoupicked@localhost
-password: changes
-export DISPLAY=:0
-startlxde
-Recent apps select Xserver XSDL
**Profit**

XSDL works fine with my symlinked Arch.
