Re: Install troubles

Thanks, My only want for the XBox is to use it to serve up the media files I have. I use several other Xbox's with media center programs on them to play so all I needed was a server to feed them the files from. Since the Xebian is working I got all the samba shares setup and files transferred to the...

Yes, Tried that one, still no go. its the weirdest thing ever. I REALLY want to use Gentoox, but for the life of me I cant get the rootfs issue sorted out.

Install troubles

Dont know why but I could never get the mount -o loop line working for the gentoox install. I know the system is setup correctly since I am now running the Xebian version and it installed with no trouble whatsoever. Boot with the live CD and run the install script. What could be easier. Is there any...

Re: Install using new larger HD on fresh XBOX?

Got the bios stuff working, flashing is no trouble. Still cant get the loopback command to work. Posted in the Q&A forum so I will end this stuff here. I know I can run it on a new hd. I was able to boot both xebian and xUmbuntu from the live CDs so now all I need to do is get the native install of ...

Re: Cromwell bios will not load

Go figure, retied tonight with similar results.

Changed to the Dust directory and attempted to program the bios Loader.bin and it worked. I dont know why, but it did, all is well I get a very fast boot right into the linux bios. I am setting it all up now using the Native tut.

Thanks,

Brian

Re: Cromwell bios will not load

I ran raincoat with -p to program it back in and I got all three status's of Erasing with the little stars and Writing and verifying(?), no error messages at all, and everything still works aft...

I am assuming that I have the proper pads shorted since it wo...

Re: Install using new larger HD on fresh XBOX?

OK, I looked in the Q&A section and found the sticky about installing native. While this answers a few questions the instructions were for the Pro version(command line). Being a noob I dont think I can do without the graphical interface. Are there any well thought out and detailed instructions about...
