tsoifinBoth images in the download section have problems booting with android installed on the table. If you go to the thread labeled: "Bounty for Working Debian with Touchscreen Driver for the Eken m001" and go to page 18 post 174 and 176 you should find download links for v0.3 images (sometimes called V2 in the posts) which should boot a whole lot better with android. Also a little father along in the thread you will find a download for a "non-image" manual install method should the image method not work for you. Once you get it booting you may need to grab some stuff like touchcal and maybe rt3070sta.ko or rt2870sta.ko from android. I created my images with Linux so if you are using windows to create the images I will have to leave any farther help to the window's guys.

1. Copy touchcal over from android2. You can adjust the evdev settings in /etc/X11/xorg.confOption "InvertX" "Bool"Option "InvertY" "Bool"evdev documentation: EVDEV(4) manual page

Windy;86474]Question: Can Fluxbox be installed as the window manager for debian or is it in the boot? Fluxbox flies and would be very nice on these M001 said:
It's a full Debian install so you can install anything you want. Once it's up and running' date=' you just apt-get remove xfce and replace it with fluxbox.

IIRC you'll need three partitions: first partition should be FAT and contains the script/ directory with the kernel image and the "scriptcmd" u-boot script. Then the ext2 partition and the swap.If you get the full "Debian image" then you should be able to just write the whole thing to your SD card using dd (ie dd if=debian.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1M) . Then you can examine the partition layout and tweak it, extend the ext2 partition, etc, as required.Hth.

Hey, i'm glad to find out that debian can be put on epad.  I'm having trouble deleting the partition/volume on my sd card. I've tried diskpart and computer manager to delete volume.  The diskpart says that partition cannot be deleted from removable media.  And computer manager -> right click -> delete partition is blocked. Is there anything else i can do to delete the partition?

Hi all!
As there are a lot of problems when installing Debian onto SD card, I decided to compile a small guide.

Warning and disclaimer! If you mess up with SD card numbers, you can overwrite some important files (like, for example a hard drive). Also, I take no responsibility for any damage these instructions may cause. Remember, read everything that appears on screen, and read it twice. These instructions worked for me, but the may not work for you.

1. Prepare your SD Card
A bit of warning - these instructions will delete first partition of your SD card, but prevent "Access denied" errors.
  • Run cmd as Administrator
  • Start "diskpart"
  • Write "list disk", and make note of your SD Card disk number
  • Write "select disk [your SD card number]"
  • Write "select partition 1"
  • Write "delete partition"
  • Write "exit"

2. Flash Debian image
Command line way
First, you have to get flashnul from this site: http://shounen.ru/soft/flashnul/. Unpack it somewhere, and copy downloaded debian-m001 image into flashnul folder. Next, open cmd as Administrator and:
  • Navigate into "flashnul" directory created earlier
  • Write "flashnul -p -k", and write down you SD card number (not drive letter)
  • Write "flashnul [your SD card number] -P -k -L debian-m001"
  • Wait until flashing finishes
  • Viola!

Windows way
Download this utility: http://dragonshorn.info/files/DebianInstall.zip, unpack it, and copy debian-m001 into unpacked directory. Run DebianInstall.exe as Administrator, select your SD Card and press Install.

As this is initial version of the tool, it does not repair access denied error yet, but in future versions, it will. Also, no warranties and responsibilities, if you break something down.
Instruction should be:

[*]Write "flashnul [your SD card number] -P -k -L debian-m001.img"
And no:
[*]Write "flashnul [your SD card number] -P -k -L debian-m001"

Try that but cannot be used to unbrick a M001
[/quote]

I noticed the correction Enotar suggested hasn't been corrected yet. Also, if you have a disk partition program (I have Paragon Hard Disk Manager? 2010 Professional) you can do the "delete partition" in the 1. Prepare your SD Card section with that.

Hi!

I'm using ubuntu and would like to test Debian on my Eken M001.
Could someone write a step-by-step tutorial, like this one, but starting from a Linux distro?
I red about the dd copy, but have not understand if must be created a swap partition, or not.

It should be cute if a linux pro user could write that down for all forum's n00b...
