That looks fine until the execute.. there is definitely something corrupt on your filesystem... have to do a re-copy.

I suggest doing it in the terminal so that you can see the output of possible warning or errors to trouble shoot.

I tried editing /home/user/.chroot and put it back to the way it was (pointing to img.ext2 file instead of partition), and I get all the same errors like file already exists -1 etc. etc. but I don't get the last one about /bin/sh and every thing seems to work fine. Do you guys also get that gibberish when first setting up the chroot? I don't seem to remember it before...

Yes. That's normal.. once the ext2 and ext3 modules have been loaded into the kernel then there is no point in re-loading it.. qole does not do any checks against lsmod to check if they have already been added.. he just runs insmod.. so the terminal is saying it's already there.. nothing to do.

And the /media/usb will only be there if you are using a usb device in host mode.. so it's mounting an empty directory and failing.

Everything else is fine. You'll only see that hte first time you run it on a reboot.. subsequent runs will skip that part.

Ok, thanks. I'm going to reformat my ext2 partition and wait for the tarball.

I agree that there doesn't seem to be any weird errors... I assume you are gaining root before running debian, which is why "sudo debian" doesn't work...

What happens when, after running the debian script, you type "ls /debian" ? Does it list all the directories, like etc, media, root, tmp ?

I don't have any Debian installed atm, but yes, both your image file and my ext2 partition would mount fine on /debian/ .

Outlining some steps.

Format and make ext2 filesystem on your SD card
fdisk /dev/xxxx
mke2fs /dev/partition#

Mount the current image file
mount -o loop /path/to/currentimgfile /debian

Mount the new sd card
mount /dev/mmcblkxxxx /media/mmc1

Copy all the content of the current filesystem to the new one preserving permissions
cd /debian
tar cf - . | tar xfp - -C /media/mmc1

Unmount All
cd /
umount /debian
umount /media/mmc1

edit /home/users/.chroot
------

IMGFILE=/dev/mmcblk1p2(or whatever yours is)
IMGFS=ext2
CHROOT=/debian
TMPSIZE=2M
DEBUSER=user
-------

I did not alter the /sbin/debian file at all.

Click on the "Debian chroot" menu item and that will bring up the terminal chrooting into /debian and your debian system.

output of my mounted partitions

/dev/mmcblk1p2 7.4G 1.5G 5.5G 22% /media/mmc1
/dev/mmcblk1p2 7.4G 1.5G 5.5G 22% /debian
none 1.0M 68.0k 956.0k 7% /debian/dev
none 2.0M 80.0k 1.9M 4% /debian/tmp
/dev/mmcblk1p2 7.4G 1.5G 5.5G 22% /debian/media/mmc1
/dev/mmcblk0p1 127.7M 112.0M 15.7M 88% /debian/media/mmc2
/dev/mmcblk0p2 6.8G 501.8M 5.9G 8% /debian/home/user

Had the debian chroot partition up and running fine.
