It's good to finally see a dev who cares to do a project like this. I wish I had the time to contribute. Maybe after I'm done with univ and fail at trying to find a job I will. :D Thanks for all the hard work anyways.

So I'm running CM7...
sh debian.sh seemed to complete just fine. (I even went step by step to confirm since there's a 'clear' in there).
but...
sh debdroid gives me:

# debdroid
function: not found
modprobe: chdir(2.6.37-cyanogenmod-01174-gaa3cf65): No such file or directory
debdroid: 47: Syntax error: "}" unexpected
#

I'm decent with linux but a noob with bash (or any coding). It seems like a function is missing (or I did something wrong).

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

easy1600, from the way your output is, it looks like you're not in a bash shell, but just the su sh shell. exec the command bash then exec debdroid. Thank you for trying it out.

As for Gentoo, I've been using Debian for years and never messed about too much in other distros other than arch. Though if you can get an ARM Gentoo img this method can be tweaked to work with any ARM img really.


Update: Here's a WIP of the Debtop software which will allow basically the same functionality of the Motorola Atrix Webtop software.

This vnc session is all through USB with no interaction over the wlan though it has the ability to work with vnc over ssh tunnel.

Aerodynamix: Type 'bash' then try again.

OP: What is the simplest way to copy a .cap file from debian to anywhere I can access it from my laptop? If I can just get it to android /sdcard/ I'm golden. Or if I can just send it anywhere that I can reach it...

Well, you can utilize the unionfs script which is supposed to mount the sdcard and debdroid or you can open up a file manager on your phone like astro and nav to /data/local/debian while debdroid is running.

You should grab the BusyBox tools from the market if you haven't already, I'm almost positive it comes with bash.

My /data/ directory is empty (debian is running). Unionft script doesn't seem to work at all.

I got it done by running /sbin/sshd and using winscp though. Thanks, I got lots to play with now! :D
