@twobob: Let's put it in the drpbox.KnetConnect.com/KeK resource pool.

I'll add your pub-key there and contact you about the details when I get up tomorrow.

NOTE TO THE FUTURE USER...

Do yourself a favour and leave PLENTY OF TIME to run apt-get update the 1st time you mount it...

Remember these static debian images have to drag down quite a few (TINY) files PER DAY for EVERY DAY they have sat in the repo... to apt-get update to the day you first run them... So... If it's been there for a month? that might be 120 updates... it's no pain.. just not Fast

Cheers.

EDIT: OH and you'll need this too

Re: apt-get update

US users might want to change the default repository to the US servers, as twobob's image is set for the UK.

Good point.

Whelp... After some fiddling, it works!

Here's how the connection chain looks:

MacBook Air SSH> Kindle SSH><Xorg Raspberry Pi

So, I SSH into the Kindle from my MBA, get Debian and Xephyr up, then SSH into the Raspberry Pi with the -X option, which sets up automatic X forwarding. When I launch an X app on the Pi, it in turn tunnels back over that SSH connection to the Kindle and uses it for the display!

Now obviously I'll script all of this and add a Launcher item to start it directly from the Kindle. I could also do all the work directly from the Kindle if I wanted, but typing from the laptop is a lot easier.

Here's a couple of pictures!





Thanks for all your help twobob, you saved me a lot of time and effort of building this all from scratch!

I'll be using the Kindle as a low power screen to display debugging information and allow me to interact with the GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi. Having an small, light weight e-ink display that runs linux will be invaluable while developing my hardware projects!

see.. bulletproof as promised

OKAY it was 600+ MB bigger... but hey! HEHEHEHE

Glad you/we got it sorted... in the end


EDIT: You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to timb.us again.
BAH.... I love you too

Now... when the kual-system launches I hope you find some uses for it. : D

Yeah... about that HUGE partition...

perhaps if you get it just how you like it and rip all the rubbish out...

you can resize it to be smaller...

(thanks to knc1 for the hookup on that)

I really suggest to think twice before going and trying to resize the rootfs on a KPW, given that the rescue options on that particular device aren't as sophisticated as on all the other Kindles... I'd rather go and try to mount some space via the USB network link. NFS and NBD come to mind... I think NFS support is in place, but admittedly I didn't check.
