Linux on a Mini

Recommended Posts

I've seen lots of things to get linux on other ipods, but not minis. I have 4g mini. Does anyone know where I could download the installer?

I installed it, but now I'm having a problem.

 

. When I boot in to Linux, I get a messege. It says something about "not being able to open the initial console. Kernel panic: no init found, try passing init = option to kernel"

I have no idea what's going on.

Instructions are here. I followed the steps, worked perfectly for me except it isn't very stable. Then again, the mini isn't "officially" supported by the iPod Linux project.

Download the newest version. Find the file and just drag it onto the image of your mini. It's fun, but hard to see. (the game, that is) If you see me online, and are having trouble, just send me a messege and I'll help.

From the FAQ at the iDoom website:

 

 

- How can I exit iDoom (I keep trying to turn the wheel to the right, but that doesn't help)?

 

   * Flip [Hold] on, and then off again.

   * Press [Menu] to change menu item.

   * Select quit(rotate left) then confirm (rotate right).

 

Extremely strange controls me thinks...

Hope that helps!
