Hello everyone.

I've spent last week trying to install Debian to external SD on my N810(using manual from http://natisbad.org/N810/) but still with no luck.

After I run debootstrap to install Debian Sid, I have to chroot there, and make basic setup of the new system, but I can't do that in the way it is described in that manual.

When I tried to chroot, I've recieved message about /bin/sh which is nit found. As I understand, it happens because debootstraped system contains no binaries and libraries at all.
I've fixed that by copying /bin and /lib directories from internal flash.
But each action I do after I've chrooted to /media/mnt1 is causing more pain, than relief. The last thing that made me start writing this post, is segmentation fault at «apt-get update».


I don't want to say, that I completely give up, but I really want to sleep more than 4 hours a day, and have some more time for my family.

So, does anybody have working Ubuntu, or Debian, or even Gentoo running from microSD card, who can make an image of it, and share it with me?

Easy Debian Turbo is least hassle free...I also suggest penguinbait's console tools v1.1 too. There are sooo many threads and posts with different methods and different outcomes There is a thread around here somewhere where I just finished walking a fellow member step by step...check it out. It is 1000x easier than that method you were using.

Installing rootsh, ASUI, and CSSU in that order...then clone your os ....upgrade cloned os to Diablo-Turbo then use penguinbait's console tools. Then Easy debian Turbo. Easy-peasy...Easy Debian turbo is a chroot ...much less hassle than a full debian install.

No point or need to adapt n900 methods backward to the n800...
there has already been years worth of trial and error work done by maaannny people. I would suggest such backward methods only if trying to prove a point that it is do-able....a proof of concept ...best save such exploration for the troubleshooting of installed os's/ chroots or even better try some new porting of a previously never attempted os.
There are already plenty of successful methods for alternate os or chroot installation available for the n800...it just depends what you want/ need and of course the level of usability of said os/ chroot on the n800/n810 line. And of course the individual must be inquisitive enough to do some searching and reading through the sub forums for all the pertinent posts that will net the info needed.
