    Currently there's one one version that I know of, that you can install on a smartphone. Ubuntu, but the file is 3.4 GB, so it won't run on the precedent for sure. Ubuntu is working on a open source version for smartphones, no release dates, or hardly any info on the net.

    The version out there, can be put on something with a lot of memory, it doesn't replace the OS, it's like a windows install, it runs along side of the OS.

    Keep watching the net, there will be a release some day

    it runs off the sdcard so storage isn't a problem...I have the ram optimization app and can keep a little under 180mb free of ram so I was hoping I could at least get it to boot. just for fun. its suposed to run in a chroot environment ontop of android. the error says segmentation error then says chroot....busybox. I was wondering if it could be a problem with how it's rooted. I'm running the cm7 port. its prerooted.

    its actually not run off the sdcard when you start the install process it installs a couple files in the /bin/local i believe. said file is 500mb thats not inlcuding the other files it installs. trust me i took about a month of play around with this myself and working with zach powell to try and get this to work on our little phones.
