....Hi there,
Trying to dual boot OE on laptop with Xubuntu.

I extracted http://openelec.tv/get-openelec/category/17-x86-generic-intel-amd-nvidia-builds?download=46:x86-generic-intel-amd-nvidia-diskimage...img.gz

 

But I can't access extracted(.img) folder to carry out these instuctions..   "extracted folder will contain a subfolder "target" with two files, KERNEL and SYSTEM. Copy these two files to the root of the OpenELEC partition".

 

found at the bottom of this page....http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php/Dual_Boot

 

error... file:///home/skoosh/Pictures/Screenshot_2016-08-21_15-38-17.png

 

TIA....

Hi skoosh60! Welcome to BC!

 

What part of the install are you on? Did you create a boot disk or bootable usb drive with the openelec image on it?

Thanks for reply,

No, if you try to install OE from a bootable USB it clears full hard drive, there is no option to multi-boot from installer unlike most other linux installers. I have my OE partitions(Data/System) ready to copy KERNEL and SYSTEM files as per instructions near bottom of above page.

Ah okay I got you.

 

So I just downloaded it in my Ubuntu VM. Once I extracted the file, it is just a standard .img file. If you double click it it should auto mount. From there you can copy those files into the partitions you need to. Again, you need to be running linux to do this. If you have xubuntu you should be able to.

I booted up with a Xubuntu 14.04 DVD; there is no default application in Xubuntu to mount the file, and I haven't been able to mount it using "mount" in the terminal either.

 

You can access the files in Mint Cinnamon (and presumably Ubuntu) using gnome-image-viewer, but I haven't been able to find an equivalent application for Xfce.

Huh that is interesting AI. You would think it would be able to do the same since its an *buntu variant.

 

skoosh60, check out this thread here. Take a look at the post with the green check mark. You could try those instructions and see if it helps getting the .img file mounted (ignore the first part which is putting it into VLC).

It should be relatively straightforward with Ubuntu. :)

Yup it will be easy peasy with Ubuntu. Should just be able to double click it and will auto mount.

 

Don't bother looking at the link I posted. I am trying those instructions out (on xubuntu) and they are just not working... playing with some other stuff as well. But if you are going to use Ubuntu live, just go that route and forget xubuntu.
