I tried install Ubuntu linux (ext4 img file) or Backtrack linux (ext2 img file) on T20 but without success.

http://linuxonandroi.../downloads.html

All scripts stop on mount command (mount:invalid parameter)

I can't mount even my empty file formatted in ext4 file system.

I format my external sd card and usb pendrive in ext4 and plug in to T20.

T20 don't recognise sd card and pendrive and don't mount.

Internal sdcard (mmcblk0) is in ext4 but T20 don't see external devices in ext4(or ext2)

Only fat32 (read/write) and ntfs (only read) is supported.

Tell us step by step how.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

You can also read/write from/to external sd card and pendrives with ext4 file system ? (on android)

I use MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition (free) program, format my pendrive ext4 or ext2, plug in to T20 but device don't mount.
I tried also SD card.

User Toprak says also "same here with ext2 and ext3 format"

I run terminal and
cat /proc/filesystems

I see vfat,ntfs,ext4 support (I don't see ext2)

If I tried mount linux *.img I see "mount error :invalid parameter" but if
I create system.img using command:

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p7 of=/sdcard/system.img bs=4096

and

mkdir /mnt/sys
su
modprobe loop
mount /sdcard/system.img /mnt/sys

mount OK and I see files in /mnt/sys

So if I get it right... you don't know how to mount the EXT Partitions from your SD Card?
That's rather simple really...

Check the /dev/block/xxx Devices... one of them should link to the EXT Partition of your SD Card.

Works. Thanks :drinks:

I use pendrive ext2 with unpacked backtrack linux files

ls /dev/block
see sda
and
mount /dev/block/sda /mnt/usb_storage

and I see all files from pendrive.

Now I have to figure out how to start linux from flash drive .

But why SmartQ T20 don't mount automatically ?

Installed Ubuntu in text mode but when I try
apt-get update
or
apt-get upgrade
see server error.
I changed server repository address in apt/etc/sources.list but no success.
I back to Debian.
Installed XFCE4 Desktop Environment and work OK.
USB mouse , touchscreen mouse , screen keyboard , apt-get OK.
First linux run from USB flash drive but now I create 2 partitions on SD card
-fat32
-ext2
and run from external SD card.
I need add driver for my 8187L chipset external wifi card but I don't know how because
Debian share kernel with Android and I must add driver to SmartQ kernel...

SmartQ T20 Ubuntu V1.0

http://smartqme.com/...t20-ubuntu-v1-0

I can't for now boot from Ubuntu on start but I can run from flash drive.

In this version I can install my flash drive ext4 manually.

Command in terminal:

unmount /mnt/usb_storage
mount -t ext4 /dev/block/sda1 /mnt/usb_storage

apt-get update error SOLVED- run comand:

echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8" > /etc/resolv.conf
echo "nameserver 8.8.4.4" > /etc/resolv.conf
echo "127.0.0.1 localhost" > /etc/hosts

Hy!

I would like to install Ubuntu on my T20 tablet in chroot environment. I was trying to install it but I have failed. Now I would like to ask somebody with more knowledge on this topic to write a short how-to.

Thanks ;)
