    Here are directions on how to install Ubuntu on a Milestone.

    In German.

    [How-To] Debian (chroot) mit LXDE auf dem Milestone - Android-Hilfe.de

    Since the commands are all in English, I can follow most of what's happening. What I don't know how to do is build the Ubuntu chroot environment if my Linux install is Fedora. Particularly since Mock (Fedora way to build chroot) doesn't look like it provides ARM builds.

    Hi,

    I'm from Germany so I can help. I did the same you want to do on Fedora. Thats what I did:

    su -
    yum install qemu debootstrap
    cd /home/yourusername/Desktop
    dd if=/dev/zero of=debian.img bs=1024 count=3500000
    mkfs.ext2 -F debian.img
    tune2fs -c0 debian.img
    chmod 777 debian.img
    mkdir debian
    mount -o loop debian.img debian/
    /usr/sbin/debootstrap --arch armel squeeze debian/ http://ftp.en.debian.org/debian
    mkdir debian/sdcard
    mount -t proc none debian/proc/
    mount -t sysfs sysfs debian/sys/
    mount -t devpts devpts debian/dev/pts
    chroot debian/ /bin/bash
    export HOME=/root
    export LC_ALL=C

    Then you are in your debian-system. Hope it helps.

    Best regards,
    AndroTux
