Ok after doing a little searching abootimg needs to be recompiled for x86_64 machines as libblkid.so is not in ia32-libs. this is hard to test as my linux machines are 32bit

Maybe getting the 32bit libs would work. I don't know though..

I'll happily test any file compiled for 64bit if you want.

(I'll just VirtualBox Ubuntu 10.10 32bit for now)

Sorry to be dense but I'm missing part of the process. I've downloaded the files and moved ubuntu.img and the android.img's to the /images folder but I don't know where to run the script from. I guessed, and copied the files to the /Removable/MicroSD/ folder and using Script Manager tried to run flash-linux-android.sh as root. I end up with errors that it can't find ./ubuntu/abootimg and ./nvflash.

So I guess my questions are, how do I extract the flash kit and not lose the ./ hidden folder and do I run the script from the /Removable/MicroSD/ folder or somewhere else?

Thanks so much for releasing this pack and helping a noob.

I'm running Ubuntu x64, (thanks for the update btw So do I use adb to start the script or do I run a command locally to install over usb?

If this is more support than you'd like to provide for this release I will understand, I'm just anxious to get started with Ubuntu on the Transformer.

2 questions, first is are graphics drivers/unity working yet, second is where should I be looking at to avoid asking this question and follow updates? Twitter, mystery thread, IRC? Am I missing something?

Thanks

Nice work! I had just gotten Jhinta's image to boot with XFS, guess I just got one-upped.

Ubuntu Natty has abootimg in the repos, so you may want to update the instructions to reflect this (that way dependencies are taken care of automatically).
