Exclamation [TUT] Ubuntu on Evo 4g

First you have to flash this zimage
http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1278649181

Do this by rebooting your phone into fastboot
adb reboot-bootloader

then,
fastboot flash zimage zImage

then reboot and follow the instructions on this tutorial and it will work like a charm

Thank vinny75 for compiling the zimage that makes this work for the evo
and thank the guy who wrote the tutorial for everything else..

EDIT: EVERYBODY JUST FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THIS LINK

Please, wrong section... I am begging you. The Q&A section is two clicks away.

Ubuntu hasn't been ported to the Evo. It is a highly involved process. You can't expect a ROM for the Nexus One to work on the Evo right? There are drivers to port, kernel modifications to be made. Lots of stuff have to happen first.

The website you pointed to mentions that he is working on a port anyhow. Wait for that to come out.
I'm going to leave this here, because mistakes shouldn't be hidden under a rug, but acknowledged and learned from. I am following this thread, and I may give it a try when I am done with my Physics studies this weekend.

There is the Linux for android app in the market but it will only work with a loop file system which our kernels don't have or a specially partitioned SD card.

if loop file system is required and loop support isnt compiled into the stock kernel, i haven't checked this, but with the HTC source coded release last week, shouldn't be an issue to compile your own kernel adding in loop support or having a ROM/kernel dev add in loop support.
edit: if i remember right, its a simple option to check under file system in the make kernel config.

Why is it you repeatedly insist on trolling this "wrong section" bull**** on almost all the threads? It's not your job.

Toast will take care of it. bobdude5 isn't a new member and yet you treat him as such? His question obviously belongs in this section and even when you call him out on it... a Mod has already authorized him to post in section? I bet you feel dumb.

It seems to me, you have no idea where most questions belong, it's probably best you keep your mouth shut and let Toast worry about those who are posting in the wrong section -- it's not even that hard for a Mod to move certain questions to a different section.

Add your input, just don't be a troll.

Yes, I feel dumb. And I am also very sorry. I will stop.

It's appreciated.

I'd be interested in getting Ubuntu working on the EVO 4G. This is definitely a kick-start kind of thread to get that done, too, and could definitely be a start to a larger project that didn't have much visibility before.

I too apologize for my overbearing tone, it's just there are a tun of new people here and then there are veterans -- most of which know the rules by now and understand the ramifications for there actions; don't take it upon yourself to worry about them; that's what the mods are for. Again, sorry.... and thank you.

You might want to check the Nexus One thread, someone has gotten Ubuntu to work on it... the setup might be able to work with the EVO.
