N810: 3 OS and 1 DEVICE (Mamona/Maemo/Debian)

I have a N810 and 3 OS in the same device.

Now you will ask me : How?

The answer is below:

1 – Move your Maemo to the MMC internal

* Advantage : you will have more space.

Steps:  http://maemo.org/community/wiki/HowTo_EASILY_Boot_From_MMC_card/

Now you have the Maemo in the internal MMC.

2 –  Flash Mamona in your flash memory

* Advantage: Nowadays Mamona distro is good for developers. ;)

Steps:  http://dev.openbossa.org/trac/mamona/wiki/Releases/0.1/RunningMamona

3 – Debian XFCE in external MMC

* Advantage:  Debian rocks !! :P

You should partition your MicroSD in 2 parts:

– partition 1 – 100MB – fat32

– partition 2 – ALL THE REST – ext2

Download the Debian rootfs

wget  http://debian.i2c3.com/debian-armel-n800-xfce-beta3.tar.bz2

Untar the Debian rootfs in the second partition:

tar -xvjf  debian-armel-n800-xfce-beta3.tar.bz2

Boot using your external MMC.

That’s all!!

    I know this post is old. But could you explain how you made the Debian image from scratch? I’m asking partly because I’m curious, partly because the link doesn’t work anymore, and partly because I’d like to check the source rather than get an arbitrary binary.
