Installing Debian + Gnome, KDE, IceWM or LXDE Desktop on your rooted G1!
Found an easy way to install Debian, resize the debian.img, and run a desktop on your rooted G1!
1. Installing Debain - has an installer.
For step 6. Do this instead:
2. Resize debain.img
3. Installing Desktop
For those who run into problems or errors while installing/downloading tightvncserver and/or LXDE follow these modifications:
# su ./installer.sh
2. add after the first one:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian lenny main contrib non-free
3. Hold down the trackball and hit o
4. Hit return (to save the new sources.list)
5. Hold the trackball and hit x (to exit nano)
6. Type (enter after each one):
For Haykuro's builds [Thanks to buttkicker!]
apt-get install tightvncserver
apt-get install lxde
The procedure is same for 5.0.2H versions as well.
However, some files need to be modified.
I am attaching two sets of files.
Use as needed.
extract to /sdcard/debian
extract to /system/sd/debian (ext2 partition)
Replace the files in the original downloaded package with the ones in this post.
If you chose option 2, remember to type
in step 4
