I got Debian to work on a Huawei U8800 Ideos X5 with the Aurora 2.0.4 ROM.
Everything was running smooth and great, but then I logged out from the system to see if I could switch DEs.
From there, all I saw was the wallpaper of the desktop and nothing else.
I exited with the terminal and tried again. Now I get this message:
Quote:

VNC connection failed!
failed to connect to localhost/127.0.0.1 (port 5900):
connect failed: ECONNREFUSED (Connection refused)

Is there any way I could reset the cache and try everything again?

ALSO, after the sh-ing debian.sh, this is what I get:
Quote:

Loop device exists
mount: mounting /dev/block/loop255 on /data/local/mnt failed: Device or resource busy
mount: mounting /sdcard on /data/local/mnt/sdcard failed: No such file or directory
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
Debian is configured with SSH and VNC servers that can be acessed from the IP:
eth0: No such device

vncserver: geometry 800x480 is invalid
Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server: sshd.

It was different than before, so I thought this would be useful information.

I have no idea what to do at this point.

Hmmm looks like you broke vnc :P I would recommend reinstalling vnc do apt-get remove tightvncserver then apt-get install tightvncserver
then do a restart of your device and try again.
If you want to use a different desktop you need to configure it in in /root/.vnc/xstartup vnc dosnt run right if you log out of a session and thus is broke, didnt think vnc even let you log out but guess it will :P

flash is not working very well on ARM linux, I do not think there is a official port and other 3rd party trys dont work well

really battery life not much more used than any other app running the whole time, of cause if you use the GUI none stop it will drain more but you should still get alot of life

well it includes faster downloads of the files from a server not just source forge, you can boot by clicking a button in yhe app so no more typing commands, you will get all future distros and updates first and the best bit is you get this amazing feeling for helping a developer keep releasing amazing stuff (if i do say so myself :P)

Alright. I was just wondering if I'm missing out on something. Unfortunately I can't donate. :/
Anyway, here's a picture of Debian running on my phone:
