Kaiser (Tilt), Android and Debian Issues
I posted this over on the Updated Getting Android and Linux on Kaiser but I think this needs a new thread.
I used http://www.saurik.com/id/10
with his debian.img, busybox, ext2.ko, etc. I'm running ATT Tilt with I believe currently the 1.1 build of Android from 02/17/09 since the screen rotates correctly, calls don't drop, makes me waffles, etc.
I am not new to Linux and will help get this to work as best as I can (not looking for you to do all the work, just need direction):
Here's my issues (besides wifi... another post perhaps)
No internet and "I hate this terminal emulator" = paraphrasing the output:
1.) I can't get bootdeb to run:
"mount: cannot setup loop device: no such file or directory"
I try manually typing it in and I get a "mount usage ... blah blah rtfm, etc"
2.) "chroot: cannot execute /bin/bash: No such file or directory"
you already know I have it there... I've specified it, not, whatever nothing goes. This is saurik's debian image and the file is there...
3.) I've been told to modprobe ext2 first. Well..
with ext2.ko from the post in my /sdcard directory:
"$ su && cd /sdcard"
"# insmod ext2.ko
insmod: init_module 'ext2.ko' failed (No such file or directory)"
"# modprobe ext2.ko
modprobe: cannot parse modules.dep"
whether or not I use busybox for this or not:
"# busybox insmod ext2.ko
insmod: cannot insert 'ext2.ko' : unknown symbol in module (-1): No such file or directory"
ext2: Unknown symbol __might_sleep"
That and the usual incoming call can hang until I reboot, no speakerphone action (my tape adapter in my car now hates me) and wifi. Without wifi, I can't even try telnetting in and getting the mounts to work. But if I can get Debian running, I'm hoping to maybe use ndiswrapper to give me internet.
My ultimate goal is to make a final package for devs and noobs alike to get a ready-made version so we can get the rest of the bugs taken care of.
