Chrooted Linux "Ubuntu Maveric"
Below is a download with a flashable.zip and an ubuntu.img file.
Why is this good?
The new ics updates do not allow webtop with out a dock, kernel problems same problems as the overclocking the new kernel does not support modules at this time, Or the modules are not compiled with the new kernel. This is a suppliment then for those who wish to have a linux distro. If you plug in your phone with a regular hdmi cable you can use the pocket-cloud.apk to view the ubuntu desktop
Flash plugin 10 full desktop version, (This is a full desktop flash. from ubuntu desktop version of flash 10.1)
Firefox flash plugin working
Wine for games, it is currently installed but missing some files if you manually download and install each lib file you should have a working wine, might be able to edit a repository
This is a chrooted enviroment made for android phones, this enviroment was build from scratch using ubuntu to build a chrooted enviroment from scratch for a rootfs file system.
To begin make sure your sdcard-ext has 3.5 gb free or more.
(if you wish to use sdcard instead of your sdcard-ext then you will have to make an edit in the linux.sh file)
To chroot into linux once your have the files in the correct spots you need only to have terminal emulator, and a vncserver connect (pocket-cloud.apk is free from the market.)
You will need to be rooted or the ability to mount a loop file, and chroot into a chrooted enviroment wich usually requires root privleges. Although there may be ways to vnc connect into it with out being rooted using adb, and adb shell, that will not be discussed here.
So if your rooted, and your have 3.5 gb free space on sdcard-ext then run the:
bioniclinux.zip from your recovery
This will push the files to the correct place, except the ubuntu.img
Put the ubuntu.img on sdcard-ext
adb push ubuntu.img /sdcard-ext/ubuntu.img
In your terminal emulator type: linux
(after you used the bioniclinux.zip and pushed the ubuntu.img to sdcard-ext.)
open pocket cloud free
host: localhost or empty or 127.0.0.1 or 127.0.0.0.1 (not sure how many zeros)
Wine, missing files, wine is still installed if you remove it you could posiible free up some space,
This can be fixed if you edit the /etc/acct/source.list
and fix missing packages and delete old sources, The only reason I left it was because upgradeing can breake Flash player 10.1
and dist-upgrade can breake the whole .img If anyone wants to upgrade and fix the source.list let me know
Removed uneeded files. Freed up close to 1 gb
installed Chess 3d
if you cannot connect with those settings try
and if those dont work try
Having troubles make sure you put the ubuntu.img in the correct place, and name is case sensitive, so make sure it says ubuntu.img not Ubuntu.img
check the linux.sh in /system/xbin/linux.sh or /system/bin/linux.sh make sure it is in both places with adb you can do
adb pull /system/xbin/linux.sh
adb push /system/bin/linux.sh
adb pull /system/xbin/linux
adb push /system/bin/linux
That might fix the problem of not seeing the linux comand, if you cant mount your .img make sure inside the linux.sh it is in the correct location
for example one of the linux.sh might say /sdcard/ubuntu.img
the other might say /sdcard/-ext/ubuntu.img
for the location make sure your location of the image is in same place as the linux script
if you have the linux script or the zip you can put it on your sdcard in the same place as your ubuntu.img and type from the terminal
losetup /dev/block/loop0 /sdcard-ext/ubuntu.img
mount -o rw -t ext3 /dev/block/loop0 /data/local/mnt/Linux
that should start the chrooted enviroment
Anyone want to upload the .img to a better file sharing site? send me link for download, faster download speed would be nice.
