Yes, "easy-chroot.deb" is ready (need more tests) and "easy-deb-chroot" is being cooked today. I hope to release them today or tomorrow. They will need inception, aegisctl, open-sh and xmimd as dependencies, so will work with or without open mode kernel. And xmimd (i.e., Meego virtual keybord) is not working on PR1.3 (javispedro is trying to fix it). The debian image downloading remains manual.

Thanks a lot.
You can find inception 0.2.5, aegisctl 1.3 and opensh 1.0 zipped here.

I will be happy to try it if you need more tests. I am in PR 1.3 but I have a hardware keyboard that I could use (although I'm not a QWERTY user, so there are some problems) until Javispredo finds how to fix xmimd.

To beta-testers : here is the 1st release of the package "Easy Chroot" for MeeGo Harmattan : easy-chroot_0.1.0-1harmattan1_armel.deb

Transfer it to your Nokia N9/N950 and install by tapping it with a file manager or using "# dpkg -i" as root in X-Terminal.

I will create a specific topic for "Easy Chroot" with better explanation.

Hi rcolistete, i've downloaded and installed your package as well as the debian v3.e.img file which is extracted to /home/user/MyDocs/.chroot

in terminal as root,
i typed: /opt/easy-chroot/qmount /home/user/MyDocs/.chroot/

It returned an error Image specified does not exist or is neither a regular or block special file


Could you advice on the next step.

Thanks...

Hi Kabouik,
i had the same error as you. I could solve the problem. Before i used FingerTerm, and it doesnt work. Then i tried Terminal and now i am able to mount.

I installed only inception and aegisctl. Then i was doing the following:
ariadne sh
aegisctl -s
./debian
I was using easy-chroot_0.1.0-1harmattan1_armel.deb. But i had to copy the debian script from HarmChom.tgz and i had to create /.debian and the /home/user/.chroot file.

But my device reboots after few minutes, if i am using debian. I dont have any idea why. What can cause this?

My second question:
The home directory in debian chroot is /home/user. This is the same home directory as the normal user in harmattan. Isnt this dangerous? How can i change this?

The debian image should be placed in "/home/user/MyDocs/", for example "/home/user/MyDocs/debian-m5-v3e.img.ext2".

"easy-chroot" installs in the directory "/opt/easy-chroot" but links to "/bin/" (which is in user $PATH).

To mount an image, it is simple, for example :
# qchroot /home/user/MyDocs/debian-m5-v3e.img.ext2 /.debian/

About Easy Debian installation & running : please wait for my "Easy Debian" package, to be release in the following hours. I'm testing it.

Reboot ? Are you using overclocking ? I've never experienced reboots using HarmChom.

About "/home/user" mounted in debian : see the Easy Debian topics for Maemo.

Ok i saw, that the mount option can be changed in qchroot.

It is save to have the same home directory? Can debian chroot overwrite something from haramattan configuration?

The user in debian chroot is root
whoami
root
/etc/passwd says that the home diretory for root is /root.

but:
cd ~
pwd
/home/user
This is strange.

Yes, it is possible. But it, in my case, it never happened with Easy Debian for Maemo 4 (N810), Maemo 5 (N900) and MeeGo Harmattan (N9).

If you don't feel safe, just make regular backups of "/home/user/".

No, it isn't strange :
[root@m5v3e: /]env
gives
HOME=/home/user
so Debian sets $HOME for root to share "/home/user/".

Please read Easy Debian Fremantle topic and Easy Debian wiki as all the questions above are common to Maemo and MeeGo Harmattan and already answered.
