@ tuxuser

thanks for the quick response sir, what I was trying to ask was if it's possible to do a full install of it on a spare hdd or possibly on the usb stick. I read of the possibility of persistence, from the post above, but how about on the hdd? so I can tweak more settings, probably change GUI environments (prefer xfce) and the likes. Thanks!

Hi there,

i read somewere here that it is working on the install feature, but since it is still a beta there is no real reason to install it. Instead persistance was mentioned.

great job so far. seen some good vidz online. i seem to be having a problem though, dashlaunch 2.21, falcon retail jtag, component cables(hd on). using dashlaunch xell launch. followed the tuts on here. im getting it to go through the boot process, gets past xell, finishes up with the penguins up top then switches to the next "page" where it starts with the error 0 like 10 times or so. gets past that, but it hangs for 30 sec. after the CD-ROM mount point /cdrom/. next line looks like it says identifying.. [numbers], then a couple lines later it says "please provide a name for this Disc, suck as 'Debian 5.0.3 Disk 1': and just sits there. am i doing something wrong here??

the "error: stdin 0" lines are normal, the disc-name thing aswell. It seems like the crash is caused by the CPU spinlocking.
Did you try some more boots to see if it happens at the same place always?
I have no idea what I am doing but atleast I am trying

all i have tried so far is the one on the first page on this thread. I was trying this really late last night, kinda screwed up my day today at work trying this... but oh well.... LOL. i think i just might wanna wait till this is out of the beta stages, or even wait till its working more. any word if flash stuff will work on the 360 though?? I would love to be able to run streams and stuff on the 360. the ps3 kinda does it, but some streams for like WWE ppv's have a ad type thing that sometimes screws up on the ps3 and ends up blocking the whole screen.

also, does the linux version of XBMC or VLC work on this?? would be great if it was integrated in a future release, allowing you to play any video clip.

Thanks for providing us this Ubuntu liveCD for xbox 360, it works for me so far, I'm typing this from my xbox 360, connected to a 32" LCD tv through HDMI . I'm using a USB mouse and a PS/2 keyboard attached to a PS/2-USB converter. Internet is OK but no Flash so I can't watch youtube but it's OK, this is a beta anyway. I hope this liveCD can be refined more and be a LiveDVD :)

BTW, is it really normal that my XBOX360 has 2 orange lights lit while running the LiveCD? ???

@lazarusjx - Yes the various different color lights are normal.

@tux - Thanks for putting together this LiveCD.  I still have a really old version of Debian running off the HDD of one of my 360s using the KK hack.  This distribution is a vast improvement!
