This page is designed to describe how to install the MeeGo Image Creator (MIC) on Debian to allow one to build MeeGo images on Debian.
MIC can be installed on Debian Squeeze using packages from MeeGo.
1. Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://repo.meego.com/tools/repo/Debian_5.0/ /
2. Install mic2
apt-get update apt-get install mic2
The following line will build a USB image:
su -c "mic-image-creator --config=default.ks --format=liveusb --cache=mycache"
See http://wiki.meego.com/Image_Creation_For_Beginners or http://wiki.meego.com/Image_Creation for more information, including how to find/create a .ks file.
1. Installing mic2 0.17 gives the following error message, which seems to not be a problem:
Processing triggers for python-support ... Compiling /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.4/mic/appcreate/nand.py ... File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.4/mic/appcreate/nand.py", line 282 finally: ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax
2. The current Debian Squeeze package (mic2 0.17) does not work to chroot into a MeeGo image:
su -c "mic-chroot meego-codedrop-ia32-developer-201003311106.img" Error: I can't recognize this image type.
It is possible to use the image without using mic-chroot:
However, the convenient bind mounts are not present.
