1) Recipe of Sven-Ola Tuecke:

Sven-Ola Tuecke created a direct way for installing Debian or Ubunto on an Android device.
http://sven-ola.dyndns.org/repo/debian-kit-en.html
ROOT is required to be able to do this.
Debian, or Linux, will install to a deb.img in data/local/deb

  1. debian-kit-1-5.shar
  2. (VX)Connectcot.app
  3. Remote RDP.app
  4. Debian

 

Download his install script: debian-kit-1.5.shar:
http://sven-ola.dyndns.org/repo/debian-kit-1-5.shar
once downloaded it will be seen as debian-kit-1-5.jpeg.

It requires (VX)Connectbot.app to run the commands.
Install (VX) Connectbot.app

Using Terminal Emulator or (VX)Connectbot:

1: type: “SU”
to get the super user # prompt

2. type: “sh /sdcard/Doanload/debian-kit-1-5.jpeg”
this start the installation; follow the prompts.

3. type: “2s” (or alternative as indicated) to select the instaal option.
(2s selects a 2Gb ‘partition’ with a Debian Squeeze image)

type “deb” to start

apt-get update

apt-get install andromize

adduser deb (password: deb)

Using remote RDP

Then use

2) Recipe of Eric Doviak

  1. Format the Removable SD memory card using Gparted
  2. Set write prohibitions for Android, for the Debian partitions

Formatting the SD card

I use a special USB stick with Yumi, as general purpose rescue tool.
On it, i have the Gparted partition editor.
After booting from the USB drive, and selecting gParted, this i how i partitioned my 64 Gb SDmemory card (following the description of Eric Doviak on doviak.com):

  1. 26 Gb FAT32 “Android”
    Which i later reformatted to ExFAT (which allows for larger size files)
  2. 6.4 Gb Ext2 “Debian”
  3. 26 gb Ext2 “Data”

Android will read the first partition first.
