i too would like to know this... I'm using the gp2x emu, and it runs off of debian. The only way i know to download roms is either through lynx or wget, which is a pain in the ass... I have tons of cps2 roms on my sd though

How the heck does no one know this?

Well, at least I feel good stumping ALL of XDA haha

What about using a webDAV or SAMBA server? Anyone know of Android implementations of those? Seems like you could maybe share the sdcard folder, then set Debian to auto-mount it in the file system as a network share.


Another plus would be you could set your computers on your network to auto-mount your phone as well. Imagine being able to access your sd card without even having to take your phone out of your pocket, or interrupt your tunes.

Well I'm pretty linux retarded... actually computer retarded in general. I tried setting one of my g1s up as a ftp server using some app off the market, then i installed ftp in debian using apt.

I couldn't get the two to connect though. kept getting errors about there being no route to host. uggggh networking is very foreign to me... i'm sure if i spent a couple days on it i could figure it out, but honestly, I don't play video games enough to justify that amount of time to my girlfriend.

For anyone having problems with the chmod step, try this first!!!

cd /sdcard/debian
sh ./installer.sh

<-- it installs after this
bootdeb

Worked GREAT

If I did this on my g1. Mind you I have jf 1.5 with lucid mod apps2sd. Will it mess up anything else. Anyone with the mod have any trouble or can confirm it works for them. Cuz the I see you guys do it I think you don't have any apps to sd script. Sorry I'm a lil new to it but but I want to be able to run debian and a desktop like gnome. Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, I have gotten past the permissions obstacle by copying frsw, unionfsm bootdeb, installer, and mountonly to /system/bin, and do chmod 4755 * from the there, not through the sd card. When I am done installing it, I go to run debian by bootdeb, and it starts to initialize, but then a split second later, says no such file bla bla bla, (and lots of bla, with no time to read it all) and then reboots.

Any helps at all?

I am running JF 1.51

Does anyone has the screenshots of the running debian etc..?
I would be interested how it looks like and usage wise before actually going through the entire process of installing a distribution.
