Hello, I have installed chroot ubuntu on my transformer prime. I have the dock, wich has a usb connector. Android recognizes my 1 TB external harddrive I plug into it and has access to the files. The keyboard and mouse pad works also. Does anyone know if there is a way for ubuntu to get access to the files on my external hard drive also ?

Ok, thanks for everything :)

You will need to edit the boot script, where is your harddrive mounted in android? I can then add in the function to mount it, as im sure other people have this mount point to

ok, it's mounted as /Removable/USBdisk1/Drive1 ( I have 2 partitions on it, the other is Drive2 )

I don't know if you need all these sub directories to mount it, or if only with Removable you get the dependancies.

I tried to look on google how to mount usb external hard drive through chroot ubuntu, seems a bit complicated to find the info. I did not install your app to get chroot ubuntu, I found other way before ( androlinux.com) , so if you know the proper terminal commands that I need, either inside android or inside my vnc client's ubuntu session, I'll be happy for you to share them here. Of course, a script that would boot it all for me when I boot the chroot ubuntu would be nice, as in the androlinux.com thing I have to enter " bootubuntu" and " sh run.sh ", not too much complicated, but if I need many many lines of code -- I'd do it anyway; however..

Thanks,

Ok well within my boot section is this section
Code:
##########################################
#Checks if you have a external sdcard    #
#and mounts it if you do                 #
##########################################
if [ -d /sdcard/external_sd ]; then
	busybox mount -o bind /sdcard/external_sd  $mnt/external_sd
fi
if [ -d /Removable/MicroSD ]; then
	busybox mount -o bind /Removable/MicroSD  $mnt/external_sd
fi
so what you will need to add into your boot script before reaching the final bash command is
Code:
busybox mount -o bind /removable/USB1/disk1 $mnt/USB1
however you will need to create the USB1 directory within your ubuntu build at the root of ubuntus file system while its booted before rebooting and mounting

Thanks for the great effort man.
I was looking for a convenient and decent (yes, yes, a S H O R T C U T, what's wrong with it ?) to use some linux flavor on my android tablet (Transformer tf101).
Your app is exactly what i've been looking for.
An application that allows someone to save time deserves some money, in my opinion.
To be honest and sincere , i'm also an iOS developer (gulp ! :) ).
I developed an app called "iCalenDayNext" that, practically speaking, is just a front-end allowing people to insert events (and reminders as free sms) in google calendar.
Has many features, so i also decided to put it at .99$ (or .79 €, i'm Italian).

Anyway. Keep up the good work.

I think, as suggestion, and quoting mrWax you should implement puppylinux or MacPupLinux (ubuntu compatible). Speed is important !

Thank you for your time.

All the best,
