X-dsl 0.7 Remake Based On New Kernel
Posted 05 June 2010 - 11:07 PM
I followed every tutorial on here and it seems none work for me. I get up to the stage of clicking Fatx then it says "Loading Kernal" thats as far as i get... i've left it for 30 minutes to see if does anything else and nope
all the files are in the right place.. Case sensitive.. tried default.xbe in different places ( Doesn't seem to matter where ) i guess i'm out of luck here\

i could easily port that being its devx file probably has 2.4 but its based on a very old version not even the 4x puppy series. and im trying to port 5x that uses the ubuntu repos as well as puppy's own.

and its also hard for me to test it on a real xbox being my xbox hardrive only works when it whats to. i did pull the key off it so i can replace it but i just haven't had the money.

Can I get some sense of whether there are any active users of this stuff? Sourceforge reported an average of less than 10 downloads of x-dsl-0.71.2.zip each month since Jan 2011.
Sorry, I haven't logged in here in a while.
If you were planning on doing more work on this, I'd be willing to give a reinstall a try. I had uninstalled a while back due to lack of proper controls like a Xbox mouse, and keyboard, or wireless ones for PC ssh. I suppose I could try the ssh from my desktop wired keyboard.
I think one of the reasons the download number may be lower than usual is that the Xbox linux info is so dispersed, and not organized. I'd bet that there are people downloading any number of the other X-DSL variations out there with no idea that yours is the most up to date.

x-dsl and xbox linux sites are both down - so this explains the dispersed information. It doesn't help that the pinned threads haven't been maintained for a long time.
I will have a go at this again when I find the time and users report back on their experience.

Worse, even, all I have ATM are questions. The most important one being: Is it possible to install X-DSL without fatx partitions (no C/E/F/X/Y/Z drives)?
I realize I would have to figure out how to partition & format a harddrive from a live CD (Windows 7 on desktop) but before I dive into a few nights of Google searches to do that, could X-DSL even handle a dedicated drive? And is simply placing linuxboot.cfg in the root of my first partition enough to load it?
If it matters, my dvd drive still works, booting directly from cromwell 2.4, usb keybord/mouse can be attached. I've been looking for a simple install disk for X-DSL for a while, but they all seem to require booting via a XBE. Also, I recall only loopback installs being available via E or F drives.
