Hi guys. I'm having a problem with Linux Deploy and installing an OS. When I try to install any OS (Arch, Kali, etc.) it returns a "Making new disk image... fail" error and ends the install. Debug mode shows "dd: opening '/storage/emulated/0/linux.img' : No such file or directory" twice. Status shows that data, where it would be installed, as 26.0/26.8 GB of space used despite my phone being reset and wiped prior to the attempted install. This is where I see a problem. I'm using a Nexus 5 running Paranoid Android Beta 4 with Franco Kernel. It has worked on PA before; this problem has persisted for two months though and I couldn't find another forum or even a thread that touched on this more. Would anyone know how to make Linux Deploy see the immense amount of empty space available in /data so it'll install? I'm 99% sure it just thinks it doesn't have space.

I had the same problem with my Nexus 5, I fixed it by changing the installation path (in the properties/download menu) to /sdcard/linux.img, hope this helps

I have a different problem, maybe you can help me too.
when i'm installing through Linux Deploy the image installs fine. But when it hits;

It stops. I had Kali installed through deploy before. It did not have enough memory to install all the needed packages to I deleted the whole thing, formatted the SD, I even completely removed root after factory reset and cleared everyting through recovery. I wanted to reinstall everything amd now I have this.
Could it be a problem with the mirror IP or something?
I've tried everything but nothing has worked so far.

Please help if you can!
