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!

Hey Flipster, A good buddy of mine and I just spent ALL of last night going through the install of the default Kali Linux Image on his new AT&T Galaxy S6. You will, I'm sure, be glad to read that he and I have worked out the initial repo' issues and -what's more- spent the next 8 hours strait correcting the default Image/build's sudo issues as well!

We intend to start a new thread in the general AT&T Gallaxy S6 forum with a step by step for what we did to get it going! I apologize for not going in to more detail here and now, but as I said we have been going at it for over 13 hours strait fueled with nothing but Taco Bell and Redbull....
XD
so needless to say we are both going to call it a night.

But never fear!! We will get you all a DETAILED Step-by-Step How-to posted on here for all you Galaxy S6'ers ASAP! I think you can expect an ETA of about 48 hours (give or take...lol, WORST CASE scenario 72 Hours).

I look forward to hearing what everyone will think of our approach!

Cheers!

PS - No such thing as a stupid question!
