How to install using mechinstaller hack? Or is it possible?
Posted: Sat Nov 22, 2003 7:55 pm
I was hoping to install this gentooX distro via the mechinstall hack. I got the mechinstall linux running, and I put the GentooX CD in and nothing happens.
I tried mounting it directly with:
mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/D
it seemed to work, and i could read the CD.
since my usb keyboard doesn't seem to work when plugged into the console, i telnetted into the Xbox with my laptop. and i tried running the default.xbe on the CD and got some gibberish.
My question is where do I go from here? do I copy the files over to the HDD and run the install routine from there?
any help would be greatly appreciated.

you need to have a modified xbox either audio/font hack modchip or tsop flash. Then you can put in the gentoox cd run it and it will install gentoox. You could run the stardust install from the mechinstaller linux but you wouldn't be able to run it afterwards.

For the 100000th time, Xbox-linux wont give me the XBE signing key for the mechinstaller. PLEASE search the forums before posting.

I have GentooX running on my "MechInstaller'ed" Xbox. I'm using Xebian's .xbe and a modified initrd.gz

To give you a slightly more helpful reply, mancubus:
If you don't reflash your bios, you'll always have to keep executing some kind of exploit to allow it to boot into linux (such as the mechinstaller one you've already done). That's the hard part of things. What you need to do now is reflash your bios, which is what the mechinstaller linux is good for. Get yourself a copy of raincoat and the gentoox loader bios (bios from here, raincoat from google) and reflash your bios. After that, you can just stick in the CD, boot normally and the bios will run it so you can install gentoox.
