It's a guide to install Debian Stretch with the mainline kernel on an SD card and run that on C201 Asus Chromebook!


Anyone tried it out?

I will, as soon as I find time! Are you asking out of curiosity or you think it won't work?

I couldnt make it work. Got a white screen with either both kernel command lines he posted. Have opened an issue, so lets see if Aleksandar can help us a little more. Anyway, seems like there is a working Devuan image:

Yeah, this is the one I'm using and it's running better than the Arch Linux one. I haven't managed to load the proprietary drivers for the wifi yet though; I'm using an Atheros dongle instead.

Have you managed to install a desktop environment and run it?

Yeah! X11 with lightDM and MATE. The same setup works far better in Devuan than in Arch Linux.

I've managed to compile chromeos kernel with all blobs, so lets see if I can install this kernel with a debian system
