Debian for Nandroid
Original thread (Thanks mercianary
Here is a direct link to zipped .img file with deboot file both to be placed onto on root of SD card
debian.img + deboot (to be placed on the root of your SD card)
Better Terminal Emulator (or other terminal emulator) + AndroidVNC (or other VNC client) from the market
To automate one click startup process via Better Terminal Emulator:
Or type this for each new session in any terminal emulator:
You should get a blank screen showing "localhost:/#" after a couple of seconds.
Then leave Terminal running in background (don't let it close via task killer or otherwise), hold down the hardware menu or home button to switch programs for a bit and connected in via VNC (AndroidVNC)...
and password: password
... then hit connect (login details will be saved for next time)...
its working fine software keyboard etc and at good speed. In menu options select 24bit colour, local mouse, 1:1 scaling and Touchpad only to make navigating menus much easier.
Normal phone and Android functions should be fine.
Short press hardware menu key to get mouse options etc and longpress to bring up software keyboard (using Android VNC).
This debian image cannot be shut down unless the phone is rebooted.
I am using the Hyperdroid
Rom off NAND, overclocked at 1.2ghz and a 16GB class 6 microsd (although it should be independent to all this... worth mentioning)
Edit 1. This is a bare image with LXDE on top but the repository for Debian is large and you can use apt-get install openoffice.org, apt-get install abiword etc to grab whatever you want to fill the 1.5GB image... unlike Ubuntu all the applications are free.
Edit 2. Its possible to have debian and ubuntu
on your SDcard.
