    Re: Native Arch Linux on A200

    I don't know if this'll help, but i remember seeing an xserver in the market. Maybe a way to make chroot send an xsession to that?

    Wouldn't be native. Chroot is not the goal...

    Debian on A200 native

    Hello to every body




    I found an boot.img file that I was flash with fastboot on my a200, this modified boot allow me to diseable the boot from mmcblk0p0 partition on my internal storage device, and boot from mmcblk1p2 partition on my external sdcard.


    I was try with ubuntu 10.x first time, I can get input device support and touchscreen support, when I connect the usb keyboard do not work.


    So I was try debian test edition, I was get usb support for keyboard and mouse device. I can get support for touchscreen.

    I can get support for wireless card, the firmware for it appear to be on the kernel but lshw -c network show me that wlan0 is disabled and I can get to up it. so I can get update or upgrade the system, I will try to install some .deb manually download its depends one by one.


    Libre office works perfectly, I get more memory support, I mean on android I get 700 Mb of RAM memor, on Debian I get about 900 Mb.


    I just have a 2Gb sdcard so I can not install so much aplications right now.



    Can somebody help me get wireless support for my device?






    Thanks

    Hello



    This is the link newrec.img
    You need to use fastboot flash boot boot.img into fastboot mod of your device. I use a200 16 GB one.

    On this forum you can find more info, but please put your comment and questions here to fallow it and make the solution.
