e text editor on andlinux howto

finally got the e text editor to work on andlinux! sweet!

how to:

1) install andLinux, choose coFS so you can see *all* your windows files.

2) resize the default partition to > 2GB default [1]

extract c:\program files\andlinux\

shutdown andlinux

now run (for 10GB)

C:\Program Files\andLinux\ImageResizeTool\toporesize-0.7.1>tfile ..\..\Drives\base.vdi 10000

now restart andlinux

and within it:

sudo apt-get install build-essential -y # install gcc

now download ext2resize within linux

install ext2resize, then run

    sudo ext2online /dev/cobd0 

3) "give yourself more swap ram" [at least 1GB for sure 2GB swap file works well] [2]

root@andLinux:~# swapoff /dev/cobd1

c:\Program Files\andLinux\Drives>type swap.vdi >>swap.vdi2

several times

or in ruby:

a = 'swap.vdi2', 'w' 2e9

a.write 'a'

4) checkout the git repository

sudo apt-get install git-core

git clone git://

apply this patch:

install some unlisted dependencies

sudo apt-get install build-essential curl libgtk2.0-dev

then follow the directions within linux-notes.txt

Then follow the directions under the section "it all comes crashing down"

And you *might* have a working andlinux e text editor.
