The internet is wrong and all the tutorials are broken #4026
An improvement in Chromium OS security has broken all the internet tutorials for crouton. Oops.
But it's OK, with the power of the internet, we can fix the internet!
If you've found a tutorial that is still listing the old commands (
What used to be the following steps (these are now wrong!):
Have become the equally-memorable:
The steps for running chroots off of external media have also become more convoluted. It would be best if tutorials just referred to the README section in that case.
If you find the old steps are still working, it's only because the changes haven't rolled out to you yet. It will. Just you wait. Or don't wait, and instead help make crouton tutorials great again.
Post links here to tutorials you've helped correct for some sweet, sweet recognition!
The README has been updated, everybody reads that right?
when i try to install cinnamon it doesnt work cuz there is no target, and theres no support for bionic when i do sudo crouton -t touch,kde -r bionic. it would be cool if you could add support for it cuz most apps i need, need bionic. but either way thanks this is amazing
I followed the updated instructions and still receive uid error. I think it may have something to do with my specific chromebook because it works on my Dell chromebook just fine. Perhaps I messed something up early on and now it wont work even following the updated method? Or maybe it simply isn't compatible with this version. Please see my issue for build information. Would really like to get Kali on this machine.
If it is relevant I tried and failed to root using Aroc.
