Default linux and xorg on galaxy mini

Hi,
i have succesfully used the linux installer app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.galoula.LinuxInstall&feature=search _result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5nYWxvdWxhLkxpbnV 4SW5zdGFsbCJd
on my galaxy mini (android version 2.3.4) to install debian squeeze. I can't run x server, no success so far.. I can post the xorg.conf file and Xorg.0.log file if required. Have someone succeded in such a task? I suspect, the failure has been due the poor hardware available on this phone.(600 mhz arm processor and 279 mb of memory)

Thanks in advance for the replies.

You're probably right, you need more hardware horsepower.

Thanks. I'm following this guide : [HACK] Increase Internal Memory Size to Whatever You Want! - xda-developers in the hope to increase the phone internal memory size.

You can repartition the internal memory (storage) for more system space, but of course you can do nothing about RAM. That's likely the biggest limitation.

In the guide seems that the ram is more then the "physical", after applying the suggestions therein. Look at this screenshot : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/40706818/Gladiatore/gestione_english.png

The phone is a samsung mini and seems to has much more memory without physical changes.

astonished..

emm storage..not ram..sorry
