    How large? why you want to write to /system/usr/.?

    What kind of format about your images? this APP will select all pictures from SD card or U-disk by itself. if you just want to view pictures, I think maybe you have to find one APP for pictures view.

    I tried to copy a scumm game with 1..1GB to /system/usr. I thought this would be the best place since there is no /home or /localhome. It failed copying after the second file, which was about 96MB. I think this is what also mmanu means with the missing 2GB storage.

    Simple, small resolution JPG files stored in /udist/Fotos. Do I have to create a folder called /images or something?

    Thanks!

    i don't think so. when you go to your settings/sd card & device storage/ you see the sd card and the internal device storage (where it puts the /) which has 195M of available space after installation (~ 256 - 51.7). it seems to me that that is why you can't copy a 1.1G file!

    another related remark: the system seems to mount properly my usb flashdrive but i can't find it with ESfileExplorer.

    As mmau said, there is no enough space to copy so large files, you shoudl try SD card.

    it shoud be recognized, you can change to frame mode, and set path to /udit/Fotos, then your images will show.

    Thumbs down Re: Linux on 7" mini netbook ARM-VT8500 ?

    For those of you with the VT8505/WM8505 based netbooks, I've rolled up a Debian system around the Android kernel that was released, with drivers or userland tools for everything.
    It adds a few things (like a framebuffer console); it will run from SD alone, or if you wish, install to the device NAND.

    X11 is not included to keep the download size down, but it's pretty quick to add with apt-get (figure another 25MB or so of downloadables).

    You can find the filesystem tarballs and instructions at: http://bur.st/~abrasive/wm8505_linux/

    i've resolved my azerty issue by brute force in the /system/usr/keylayout directly on the system (no need to modify the installation script).

    the pdfviewer document to go, proposed by LikeUbun, seems not to be free for pdf (only for office)... i'm looking elsewhere (multireader does not work, office suite viewer messes the maths formulae, android pdf viewer is really slow & still has pb with the maths ... grrr)

    Great!
    I will give it a try! Could you put your xorg.conf and sources.list in http://bur.st/~abrasive/wm8505_linux/ to have samples?
    Are 256MB OK for X11?
    Which wm do you suggest?
    Thank you!

    There's a sources.list built into the images (it points at ftp.au.debian.org, which you will almost certainly want to change).

    256mb is probably a bit of a squeeze for X11 - you won't have much room for anything else, if it fits...

    I've uploaded an xorg.conf, will roll it into the next image.

    Also, I use dwm. Very lightweight, rather minimal.

    Re: Linux on 7" mini netbook ARM-VT8500 ?

    Hello everyone,
    I was just about to open a thread about the same issue,I see it is a popular subject around here.
    Well - I have bought two 7" nice,little mini-netbooks,they came with windows ce 5.0,
    my wish is to install linux on them,thinking something between custom gentoo system and damn-small-linux.
    Could`nt keep up with the posts in this thread,anyone can sum me some important info ?
    Basically:
    how can I make the boot via SD card / Flash - USB ?
    What distro those who was successful used for the right drivers ?

    Thanks,
    Danny.
