post here http://ourl.ca/17509

but yes, there is a rootfs called xconfig for a flashdrive which has X built in.

The UI contained in xconfig rootfs is quite dissimilar to the desktop-class or smartphone-class UIs that you're used to, but that's because the Nspire is such an underpowered platform, with low CPU, RAM and Flash amounts and a low-resolution screen. And yet, to date, the Nspire remains the most powerful calculator series on the marketplace.

No, it's just a regular Xserver which waits for some great programs ;)
But forget browsers like midori, they need to much ram :(

No. You should connect the pendrive before using the bootloader.
Connecting to the computer would be the exact opposite.
well, i've allready tried this lots of times but the nspire answer is ever the same -.-

AlexisVieira, the best I can tell you is to read everything you can and learn enough to figure it out as you go along.
Ultimately, that's how great computer programmers are born in today's society.

LinksII/LynksII is a graphical version of Links that is my favorite lightweight browser.
Keep trying.

I tried using multistrap to install Debian on the calculation, but it's not working properly.
I first installed it onto a blank flash drive, but when I booted it said something about runlevel, I entered "1", and it said something about no more processes to run.
I then reformatted the disk and put the original filesystem back in, and then ran multistrap with the disk as the destination. When I booted again it ran fine, but there was no Debian (as in I tried apt-get and it gave an error about the command not existing).
Is there something I'm missing?

My multistrap config, there is one change from the original, it was giving me a 404 error:
Code: [Select]
# Example multistrap configuration file for the lenny shortcut.

[General]
arch=
directory=
# same as --tidy-up option if set to true
cleanup=true
# same as --no-auth option if set to true
# keyring packages listed in each debootstrap will
# still be installed.
noauth=false
# whether to add the /suite to be explicit about where apt
# needs to look for packages. Default is false.
explicitsuite=false
# extract all downloaded archives (default is true)
unpack=true

[Emdebian]

Does it work with debootstrap?

I think there's no default runlevel set, but without the whole message it's not possible to discover the real cause.

Maybe it's just not installed?
If it boots, Debian is installed correctly. Even without apt-get it is debian, only dpkg should be there.

It might not have installed. Although I used the sudo command, and I remember it saying it installed.

Booted again:
typed in "dpkg" and it said "-sh: dpkg: command not found"
but when I typed "apt-get" it said "-sh: /usr/bin/apt-get: no such file or directory" same thing happened with "apt-get --help"

Does it work with debootstrap?

What do you mean by that?

Maybe it's just not installed?
If it boots, Debian is installed correctly. Even without apt-get it is debian, only dpkg should be there.

Could there be a problem when installing over an existing file system?
Also, the first time I tried installing, Debian booted, but I had not command prompt. I got stuck at the runlevel prompt.
I did try adding a few files from the old fs, but I ran into other problems, so I didn't try to go further with that...

I wouldn't do that. Maybe it checks if a file exists before overwriting.

debootstrap squeeze --foreign --arch=armel <root>
Then you can use qemu-arm with qemu-binfmt-misc to run (or direcly on the calculator):
debootstrap --second-stage

Disclaimer: I didn't try it.

Yes, someone got it to work...

Voginator, are you saying run "debootstrap squeeze --foreign --arch=armel" on a Linux desktop or the calculator? (and I assume <root> means use "sudo")

Nope, run debootstrap on your computer.
<root> means the path, where your usb drive is mounted.
