Chromium OS

(Draft notes for now.)

I did this to run Hexxeh's Chromium OS build on my Asus Eee PC 1008HA.
  1. Download http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/downloadvanilla.php?build=0.9.131.2010_12_31_2144-r70311cdf (or image of your choice; Lime should be out soon.)
  2. Write the image 2G+ USB stick via gksudo imagewriter.
  3. Boot Asus Eee PC 1008HA via the USB stick, which is a little tricky:
    1. First go into setup (F2) and disable "Boot Booster".
    2. Reboot, hit escape to select USB stick as the boot device.
  4. Watch Chromium OS boot and stuff.
  5. Control-alt-t to open urxvt.
  6. Select the "install" option to write the image to the hard disk.
  7. Reboot, enjoy.
