I have a usb adapter with a usb to ps2 keyboard and mouse adapter pluged into it, which I have a keyboard and mouse plugend into. Will this settup work?
I read the tutorial which explains how to install version 0.3.1, but I don't find the file "Boot_fatx_vesa.iso" with the version I have. there is a "Boot_fatx_e.iso", but the linuxboot.cfg does not have any numbers like 800x600 in it.
I went ahead and transfered the files to the xbox from the Boot_fatx_e.iso, I just mounted the iso in Daemon and ftpd them over to E/Linux on my xbox. I executed the default.xbe using XBMC and it went through a series of tests and ended with something like this:
mount:/newroot/mnt/cdrom//debian/rootfs: no such file or directory
mount: could not setup loop device
pivot_root: pivot_root: No such file or directory
/linuxrc= 165 : cannot open dev/ console: no such file
Kernel panic: attempted to kill init
I am left with a flashing cursor and cannot use the keyboard to type in any commands. I don't even know if the keyboard will work with the way I have it hooked up.
Can anyone help me out here and tell me what I am doing wrong?

I have tried to install but have been unsuccessfull. I have burned the iso, I think it was 272MB or something like that. The xbox recognizes the disk and boots it, but does not show the login screen, all it displays is what I mentioned above.
I have a mini linux which I cannot read because of the graphics chip in the v1.6. I have tried to telnet after I boot the xebian disk, but cannot get a connection. I use Ip 192.168.0.10 as explained in the read me that came with the xebian, I don't know if it is because I am running it through a router or what. When I ftp files to the xbox, I use the non static ip that is displayed in evox when I boot, but I assume that the IP for connecting to xebian is static and contained on the disk. I am not getting the ligin screen anyway. How do I get the login screen to come up?

Things are looking up, but I have to have the disk in to go into xebian, I can't boot from the drive and I have no idea how to get it to boot from the drive. Is there someway to redirect the default.xbe, or whatever file does the directing, to load from the hard drive instead of the cdrom? Does the file that contains the xebian need to be a certain name for the boot_fatx_e to launch it from the hard drive?
Sorry if I sound like an idiot, I am really new at this. I can't even get the mozzilla to go online, it says it is online, but will not load any pages from the net.
Thanks for any help.

I still cannot boot it off the hdd. I tried running the default.xbe from the boot_fatx_e iso a few time and it went to the linux screen, but it froze. I tried it 2 or three times and also tried some of the other default.xbe's that I found in the files using XBMC and it just went to a black screen.
Well I have to go to work, I am working nights, so I will try again after I get off.
Thanks again for the help guys

Just boot the xebian cd
When the desktop loads click on the terminal icon
Then login with: su root
Then type: XBOXLinuxInstall
The install will start and ask you a few strait forward questions.

- extract the contents of fatx_e.iso to a temp directory on pc
- edit linuxboot.cfg and just verify that the line "xbox=fatx_e:/debian" is correct (change the e to an f if its on the f drive
- now go to where you installed it on the hard drive via ftp (ftp://E:/debian/)
- upload all the files in the temp directory (default.xbe,linuxboot.cfg,initrd,vmlinuz)
- reboot the xbox and you should be able to load xebian from the hdd without any disk in the drive.
some of the issues are largely caused by small differences between the initrd,vmlinuz, and linuxboot.cfg files.
the fatx_e.iso should be located in the xebian 1.1.4.iso

I know this is old.
"OLD"? this thread is Ancient, on top of that the ISO is no longer publicly availible. it can be found on Xbins, but pretty much no where else.
Besides, at this point theres no real gain to Linux on the Xbox1 Hardware.... a Intel Atom, could outperform it at a lower power solution...
