Clean installation of ubuntu takes about 1.5gb, but you need at least 2-3gb of free space for the installation process.

All data are saved to /sdcard/multirom folder. It is not separated in any way from your normal data - it eats up from the same storage as for example your movies and music.

I installed Multirom successfully, and used the boot screen and everything. I installed the ubuntu rootfs.img and it seems to be taking a long time on "Preparing the root file system, please wait, this will take a few minutes..." I had just under 2 GB free when I installed it, is that enough, used the Nexus 7 16 GB image.

EDIT: I just saw the post above, where are you getting you need 2-3 GB to install? I think Im going on 10 minutes...I may reboot to Internal(Android 4.2 AOKP) to free some storage space, delete a game or something, and start over installing Ubuntu.

EDIT 2: You a long list of No space left on device messages for a list of files, gotta start over.

It takes a while to install ubuntu, it extracts about 600mb archive, that means you need the space for archive itself and the extracted data (archive is erased at the end of the process). I say 3gb of free space just to be sure.

If it fails because it does not have enough space (you will notice the spam of "no space left" messages), just reboot to your internal ROM, then reboot to recovery, delete the ROM and try again with more free space.

My understanding of Ubuntu is that it can run microsoft office through the use of a virtual machine, does this support the use of a virtual machine?

Stupid question...I clicked on the Ubuntu link and tried to download the 8gb Nexus image but it doesn't download. It opens it up. No download. Am I doing something wrong?

I got it working with AOKP 4.2 and Ubuntu, and I'm going to add PA Beta 3 once it gets re-uploaded. 2 android ROMs and Ubuntu! Awesome!

Ok I'm going to be a newbie here...

Doing the first 2 steps will completely wipe the device?
Or are you able to keep the rom and kernel you are already running?
