no, but i definitly will :)

lol fire and hit :P

this did the trick:

I went to reportbug to do this. There were a bunch of bugs previously filed a

while back about segfaults caused by corrupt /var/cache/apt/*.bin. Taking the

clue, I deleted the contents and let it redo them. Voile.

now i got a missing public key, but i guess this was what i deleted with the *bin? anyway, i can deal with that ;)

edit: working fine now :D apt-get upgrade is running right now.

btw, when im done with the upgrade, am i running 5.03 then? never really understood the whole debian version thingy, just a dumb ubuntu user :lol:

Just for a few laughs, I decided to see if i could get debian running on the android over nbd (network block device), and actually succeeded. Originally, my intent was to see if the phone could support nbd and iscsi at all (nbd it can, iscsi requires alot more effort though it should be possible)

Dont know if anyones interested in this, but it requires a network (wifi/usb) connection and a server running the nbd-server component. The advantage (for me) was that I could use a much larger debian image and not have it taking up the precious space on my sd card.

The (huge) disadvantage to this is that when wifi goes away so does your disk, and nbd aint fantastic as network block devices go.

The very rough howto:

1) compile the nbd kernel module (against technologists kernel)

2) compile nbd-client (requires the android platform or at least the arm-eabi compiler and is not a trivial exercise)

3) run up the nbd-server pointing at the debian image (on a machine on the lan)

4) create the /dev/nbd0 device

4) start nbd-client on the phone

5) edit bootdeb to use /dev/nbd0 rather then /sdcard/debian/debian.img.

try to do the process from the beginning. if it is missing fsrw you either forgot to change the directory or did not copy all the files from the archive to the debian directory on your sdcard, i think.

you download the file from post #4 in this thread. extract it to your pc. replace the contents of installer.sh with the quoted text in post #4 (use notepad++ or something that is able to handle linux style linebreaks if you are on windows). replace the bootdeb file with the one from post #14. then copy all that to the root of your sdcard, in folder called debian. then open connectbot on your phone, start local shell, enter following commands:

su -

cd /sdcard/debian

sh installer.sh

bootdeb

then you are in debian environment, congratulations :) . because it is your first start you need to execute

/scripts/onetime.sh

after that type exit, and do that everytime you want to "shut down" debian.

from now on, if you want to start it, open local shell in connectbot and type:

su -

bootdeb

you can automate that in connectbot by passing these commands in the post-login automation, long click the host entry.
