How do you specify a directory?
-C destdir

Also, you do you format a drive in debian?
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdXY

@Vogtinator why won't it work?
It says "2.6" as kernel version - the nspire version is at 3.14 I think.

Shouldn't something made for an older version work on a newer version?

That rule applies only to userspace. Kernelspace changes really fast.

Those which are supported by the kernel directly, without any extra modules.
Search through the kernel's config options, choose and compile.

Actually, the problems aren't over yet. I can't get it to boot still, keeps saying cannot find /dev/tty0 (which doesn't even exist in the damn rootfs image for god's sakes!)
Edit: is it possible it's a problem with the kernel? I'm using the latest one from this:
http://tiplanet.org/nspire-linux-builds/kernel.html
And my ROOTFS is this:
http://tiplanet.org/nspire-linux-builds/xconfig-latest.tar.xz
I hope that's enough information for someone to help me out with?

Double edit:

@ivoah: That wifi dongle will work without any out-of-kernel modules. It's supported by rt2x00, included in the kernel. (specifically rt2800usb)
Of course you'll have to compile it for the same kernel that you're using on your Nspire.

I wrote a tutorial on how to install Debian on the calculator: http://wp.me/p4zkUM-1j
Please leave comments with any suggestions or things I might have missed.

Interesting, but you should probably make a new topic about this tutorial since it will most likely get lost in this big topic otherwise if many people ask non-Debian-related help. It will get more visibility in the process.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Can you link me a kernel which has a working usb rootfs support and is compatible with linuxloader2 (new devicetree, dtb file)?
I just can't get it use the usb as rootfs

The kernel with devicetree support doesn't support USB root yet.
The latest "old" kernel from tiplanet.org/nspire-linux-builds should work.

Question: I know it's not related to getting Linux to work, but is Linux on the Nspire a project that is still being developed by other people, seeing as Tangrs is no longer around? I was wondering because in such case it should probably get its own sub-forum.

I'm currently not doing any development on the kernel, but that's currently the case for everything except school and a minimum of fun things :-/
