I decided to have a try at this despite being a Linux
Bought a Nexus 7. Unlocked the boot, and rooted OK. Downloaded Linux
deploy, now I'm lost
I had trouble trying to install combinations other than Debian XFCE. So, at this time I recommend installing Debian Squeeze or Wheezy and the XFCE window manager. These Debian versions are known to permit
successful installations of not only OpenCPN
, but zyGrib too. As of June 17, 2013 I have successfully installed zyGrib from Squeeze repository using apt. The following is probably no longer necessary but left here just in case... Use libqtcore4 from repository, qwt-6.0.1 and zyGrib-6.1.0 source code with Squeeze. For Wheezy install qwt and qt from repository with apt-get (per Cruisers Forum member
sevanopula). Compile and install zyGrib version 5.1.4. I recommend you create a loop filesystem sized to 8 gigabytes!!. This is because you will be downloading a lot of development files/utilities, may want to experiment
with more than one window manager and choose to install nav. charts
within the Linux filesystem. Alternatively you may prefer installing them on an external micro sd card in order to free space in internal memory.
Follow instructions provided in the Linux Deploy GUI to create a loop filesystem, install the distribution and Window Manager.
There are Instructions on the Linux Deploy GUI? And Compile and install zyGrib? How do I do that?
When I try to run Linux Deploy with the settings I think are right, I get;
Checking Mount Points.....fail
What now? Any chance of some more detailed instructions, or am I just Stupid?
