I tried following your guide and created an image, it mounts and i can chroot into it on my kindle without any problems, but but besides that nothing works. as soon as i login i get this:
bash: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8)
I have no name!@kindle:/#
whoami gives an error that it cant find a user, also apt-get does not exist and dpkg gives me this
warning, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 3 package 'dpkg': missing description
warning, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 3 package 'dpkg': missing maintainer
how can i add more packages to the image or setup a working build?
EDIT: tough i used the squeeze version instead of testing
