@ashupulse: This one's easier: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ntu-droid.html

Look's like booting Debian and controlling it with a VNC client. Will test this one. Wanna see how well X11 works (though I doubt I can get it starting in the first place)

Note: If you're using a custom ROM or kernel taken from this forum, you may have ext2 support already. If unsure, check again in the threads. If you're using apps2sd, you have ext2 support.

DONATE TO ME
Hi,
i was too wondering about using debian on our phone, and found this: http://www.saurik.com/id/10

It is basicaly just installing debian into image, which you can mount then and use its bash in chroot mode.

You can see some screenshots of htop, midnight commander or gcc-avr compiler (thats why I wanted debian).


PS: That thing with unionfs did not work for me yet, but i have notice I did something wrong, so I will give it one more try.

EDIT: yep, if you add unionfs patch to your kernel, it is working too.
