I'm just installing Debian on Neo1973 phone and I found some hard points to solve. So I decided to do some notes how to do it. It could be useful for others.
Installing HowTo is under http://wiki.debian.org/DebianOnNeo1973 . According to it, we should run
but suddenly, due to a bug in debian security package, it fails with an error
Can't find keyring debian-archive-keyring.gpg
After minutes of digging I found solution. A debian stage calls cdebootstrap-static and it can take missing pgp file as an argument, so you need to download it from the net (or suck from own PC's debian installation), I found it on
Put this file to /tmp dir and modify line of cdebootstrap-static call
cdebootstrap-static --allow-unauthenticated --flavour minimal --keyring=/tmp/debian-archive-keyring.gpg --include=$CDEBOOTS...
I assume that you did ./installDebianOnNeo.sh all before. Now run
The installation will go further but fails again with unmet dependecies of libcaca0 and libcucul0. Due to fact that apt is set to unstable distribution there are some dependecies probles. Solution is to switch to testing, then install libcaca0 and libcucul0 and then switch back to unstable. To do this, switch to prepared debian root on SD card with
chroot /mnt/debian /bin/sh
then edit /etc/apt/sources.list and change first entry from ustable to testing. Then refresh packages list with
install missing libraries
apt-get install libcaca0 libcucul0
Exit chroot (with exit command :) ) and go with the remaining stages
./installDebianOnNeo.sh apt fso configuration kernel unmount
After that, follow the rest of main debian on Neo1973 manual.
Voila! Enjoy Debian on Neo1973 :D
