Updated Install Script - Debian

Postby cmold » Sat Aug 29, 2015 10:10 pm

Because most of the scripts are outdated and do not work, I took it upon myself to update the script and host all the necessary files (a lot of thanks goes out to Comcast user "ssmurf" for hosting these files)

Code: Select all

wget http://cmold.xyz/lynxbox/install.sh
- this is updated and will work, besides the debootstrap package, the archive format changed a bit, and sources needed updating


1. Write the Gentoo Live CD Beta 2 (Free60/SourceForge page) to a CD (kinda important. It needs to be a CD because of the way Linux reads partitions)
2. Write the Xell Bootloader to a CD (kinda important, again, needs to be a CD because of the same reasons)
3. Wait for the install. Everything will work, no other details are necessary as they'll be displayed on screen.

Code: Select all

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1
sfdisk /dev/sda << EOF
mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda2
mkswap /dev/sda1
sync; sync; sync

echo "Base System Install Complete! Probably."
echo "You may now shutdown the xbox360."
echo "Then continue the install by booting the Xell-Bootloader-sda2 FROM A CD !!!."

If a mod could update the script on the Wiki page as well, that'd be awesome given how many people go there at first and are dissapointed afterwards.
