shouldn't hdparm be able to do this in Xbox?

"hdparm -S <number> /dev/hda"

where <number> is how long you want to wait before spinning down

Installing XUbuntu on a different partition?

Hi I have installed XUbuntu on my Xbox - and so far it seems great.
 
The only issue I have encountered is that the partition size is tiny (only about 4GB on my E:drive). However I have over 180GB on my F: drive and I would very much like tot install it there instead.
 
However I do not want to partition the drive and loose all of the data on my F: drive. I would be happy if I could use perhaps 20GB or so of my F: partition.
 
There are two installation options offered by Xubuntu. Neither are very easy to read I'm afraid - but one essentially says something along the lines of installing as a 'savegame file' (again I'm not sure what this refers to) while the other warns that it will take over the entire F: partition and wipe all the data. As I do not wish at all to loose all of my data on the F: drive, I chose the first option.
 
Is there perhaps a way to edit the script (which is called xUbuntuInstall) so that it will use the same non destructive process to install itself on the F drive instead of the E drive, while taking up a bigger amount of space?

Installing XUbuntu on a different partition?

NM... Out of curiosity (I just had to see what would happen) I ran the Xubuntu install script and chose to install it on my F partition. It turns out the guys warnings about his script 'not being perfect' and about it deleting data were accurate. It deleted the entire contents of my F: partition - and then bitched that it couldn't mount the partition 'because it wasn't a fatx partition'. Of course it wasn't a fatX partition, because the script deleted the fatX partition and reformatted it as EXT3 - which it then promptly forgot it had done.
 
It isn't just 'not perfect' it sucks!
 
Which is a shame really, as Xubuntu itself is very pretty to look at and very easy to use.
 
Oh well I guess I will just have to look at the alternatives...

Hacked game files

Ok here's the deal. I had tried the soft mod for my XBOX. But every time I try to install Linux it just freezes.
No load screen no black screen no nothin. My kernel is 5101 and my dash is 4920. If there is anything wrong
with any of those please tell me, although I'm 99% sure they fine to use. Anyway one email I received said to
look for different hacked game files. So far I've only found 2 web sites with them, the rest just talked
about them or didn't have them any more, they didn't have links either. So if anyone knows any web sites
where I could find the game files that would be great, or if you just sent them to me that would be kool to. By
the way I'm using an action replay to get the files on there if that helps. Oh and if you spot something wrong
with my kernel or my dash please tell me. Well thanks for your time .

Re: Installing xUbuntu on a different partition?

Hi,

First of all, I believe Ubuntu (Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu/XUbuntu) itself
is not created by the community of Ubuntu / Canonical Ltd to run on a Xbox.

You can take a look into the road map of Ubuntu. 

The community of Ubuntu / Canonical Ltd offers free downloads of the linux
software Ubuntu, Edubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu (sometimes called XUbuntu). 

Ubuntu (Edubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu/XUbuntu) is based on GNU Debian.

Because I like Ubuntu, there was a Xbox and there was time to do I ported
Ubuntu to Xbox. 
So, xUbuntu was born as a system without x-window-system. 

Because of the limitations of Xbox (64 MB RAM) and slow running the
graphical environment of KDE and GNOME the desktop Xfce4 environment was
the best alternative.
By the way, Gentoox gets a better performance because the graphical
environment of KDE is compiled for Xbox.

-------

The installing process of xUbuntu on Xbox is nearly the same as of Xebian
distro.

Linux itself can not run natively on *fatx* formated partitions, you need
special formated partitions (like ext2, ext3, reiserfs). 
But, you can format a filedisk or natively a harddisk with the needed
filesystem. The perfomance of native harddisk installation is better.

The *Seagate* harddisk of Xbox is 10 GB and the partition E ends at 8 GB so
you can get a extra partition F of 2 GB.

If there is a partition F you have two options:

-> format the full partition F with ext3-filesystem (with a swap-partition
inside) and run linux natively from harddisk. The linux starter-file is on
partition E. The partition F seems to be 0 MB size, but it is not.

If you have replaced the harddisk of Xbox with another harddisk you get more
space than 2 GB.  Because, the partition F is full formated with one
swap-partition and the rest with *ext3* you have the problem all data on
former *fatx*-formated partition F are trashed.

-> format partition F with fatx-filesystem. Copy the directory *ubuntu* from
partition E to partition F. Manage to change the path in *linuxboot.cfg*
from E to F. Manage to change the path to swap-file in */etc/fstab* from
e/ubuntu to f/ubuntu.

In principle, the process of installing xUbuntu inside filedisk on partition
F is formal nearly the same as of partition E.  So, if you have programming
skills take a look into the installer script (Xbox section) for automatic
control.

Thanks are you really the guy who made this? Because if you are you are 
really a hard man to find. In any case I love xUbuntu - specifically 
because it gives a very functional environment early on after the 
install process.

However perhaps you can solve a mystery for me. It seems trivial - and 
by most estimates it should be - but how exactly do you go about 
changing the keyboard layout on this distro? If you take a look here:

http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?s=4aebe4d0bb42317856ae96ae6c007188&showtopic=509908&st=0&#entry3392013 
you will see that I have tried all of the standard methods for changing 
keyboard layout - but nothing has worked. The keyboard layout appears 
somehow to have been hard coded into xUbuntu in a way that I don't 
understand.

As for moving the disk image from e: to f: I will look into this - 
although it would be nice if the installer offered an option to create a 
disk image in the f: partition instead of trashing the entire contends 
of this drive. (I don't have the programming skills to do this on my own 
I'm afraid). However, are you saying that if I physically move xUbuntu 
from e: to f: and change the configuration files you mentioned - that 
this will enable the disk image to dynamically grow as new applications 
are added? I know Vmware has this capability - but it would be nice to 
have it on xUbuntu too.

Gentoox and softmod xbox

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had successfully installed
Gentoox using softmoded xbox? I have seen earlier
posts (on other groups and other sites) saying that
this is not possible, but I am not sure if these posts
are outdated.

I am presently following the Mechainstaller approach
(with unleash dashboard) so that I can still play my
XBox games. I have used gentoo on my other linux
boxes, and I would love to be able to use it on my
xbox as well.

Thanks
