Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

gispeterson: Playing around with some Mathematica stuff, eh? smile If you still have the old chroot around, please post the output of

chronos@localhost$ sudo startlxde

There might be hope for it yet!

Thanks for sticking with us on this, I'm confident we'll sort it.

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Ugh, that's my least favorite error. tongue

Okay, this sounds a little weird, but hear me out:

Try updating the chroot once again to LXDE:

sudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton -u -t lxde -r wheezy

or similar. It sounds like the LXDE target never quite installed on your system. If it doesn't work after trying it this once more, it may be best to start fresh (copying the requisite config files, of course).

As always, if I can answer any questions please let me know.

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Thant helped a lot, but now i have arrived at this other problem!

Sorry, that I keep running into problems. Do you think it would be better to start from scratch?

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Neuro:
If you have enough space on your Chromebook to install another chroot alongside this one, that may be advisable. From within a new #! chroot, it'll be far easier to try to recover data and config files alongside it. Of course, it's totally up to you how much effort you're willing to expend getting your current chroot back up and running.

Thanks for the updates, all! When we're done, I believe we will have a fundamentally improved guide from the original, which will be brilliant.

As always, feel free to post with any updates or new issues as they're revealed.

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

One more note as well: In the new version, instead of using step 5 to start a GUI, I launch #! using startlxde outside the chroot. The only change you have to make before that works is this, from inside the chroot:

# change to /usr/bin
cd /usr/bin
# ensure that the openbox-lxde binary exists
ls | grep openbox-lxde
# move the lxde binary to a backup
mv openbox-lxde openbox-lxde.backup
# make a symbolic link to the CrunchBang binary that has the same name as the lxde binary, tricking "startlxde" to load #! instead
ln -s openbox-session openbox-lxde

Then, exit the chroot, and type "sudo startlxde" to confirm it brings up CrunchBang. If it does, you're good to go! smile

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

damn... you guys have really nailed this evolution.
- $ /.warranty -rm    (would look good on the back of a #! shirt. haha)

question - rather than pushing db links around - someone should git the process. maybe cloning into the build could answer some of the compiling issues people may be having?

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

k0s --

I'm just learning Git now, and you've read my mind. All of the projects we're using are open-source, it'll just take some shell scripting know-how to get everything glued together in a more foolproof installer, because JohnRaff and Dnschneid have done all the real hard work wink

Someday, maybe we'll even get a target for Crouton! I'll keep you all posted.

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

I have a dumb question. I have followed the instructions you have provided and am running cruchbang on my chromebook...I understand that both systems are running at the same time or dual booting, whatever. I was wondering if you guys know how I can make the permanent switch to #!, I'd rather keep my rig as simple as possible. Any help at all is appreciated. Thanks.

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

@brandon_nm: Thanks for the info. I'm rather disappointed at what I'm seeing about the MUST RUN CHROME issue...I am for sure going to set up a live cd/usb OS as a backup. I may even use it as a primary OS, a little inconvienent, until you need to hop to a different comp at the drop of a hat! I am currently downloading bodhi linux, gonna give that a whirl, see what happens. Is it normal to NOT feel worried about "bricking" my netbook? That could be a sign and symptom of a linux-related psychological illness! lol big_smile

On completely unrelated (NOT) note, still searching for a way of PURGING CHROME.

I forgot to mention, on my last attempt to run a live usb, I navigated to the legacy boot stage, only for the bios to tell me that I didnt have any memory to Run a Live Session OR Install. Totally ran into a wall on that one, any ideas? I have not run into that before.

P.S.

Is it a bad sign that I have an opinion on what the SeaBios menu looks like? (it sucks)

Re: How To: Make a CrunchBook -- CrunchBang on Chrome OS

Oh, I definitely agree on all accounts! I used the aforementioned seaBIOS Roms from John Lewis (depending on your Chromebook, you may already have seaBIOS! Mine did not).

Using a third-party coreboot/seaBIOS firmware rom will let you nuke Chrome OS and do whatever you like. However, there's no real going back (at least, in my case) to Chrome. That's not necessarily a bad thing. smile

However: just so you know, some pieces of hardware might not be supported in Debian-based distros. I'm currently wrestling with the trackpad on my C710, and I can't get it to play nice with #!, elementaryOS, Ubuntu, or straight Debian. Fedora is the only distro that seems to work out of the box, in my experience. That said, there are a number of people who are still trying to get the full support sorted, and another pair of eyes would be awesome!

Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions about the process I've gone through to get coreboot going. I'm happy to answer any questions here, too, to the best of my ability.

Also, I've had a few scares over the past few days, but never bricked the C7 beyond repair. I haven't even needed to reflash the firmware any additional times. It's been a ton of OS reinstalls, basically.

That said, whenever you open the case and start yanking cables, you run the risk of breaking everything. I just feel the need to say that, so as to avoid misrepresenting the risk. But we're all tinkerers here, so I'm confident that (save for weird circumstances) anyone reading these forums could handle it (or, at least, learn a lot a lot in the process). smile

"That said, whenever you open the case and start yanking cables, you run the risk of breaking everything. I just feel the need to say that, so as to avoid misrepresenting the risk."

As long as I have a usb live install and I don't melt the processor, I'm good to go!  big_smile

Another attempt to boot from my usb (with Bodhi), as before said:

" Not enough memory to load image "

According to one source this means that the USB doesnt have enough memory, I have a PNY 8 gb flash drive. Apparently I have to go into the USB MENU in and change a "addmem=" value, but I have NO idea how to do that, still working on it.
