might try to bring up ubuntu 12.04 on my xbox 360 if i can be bothered trying to set all that up

the latest precompiled kernel i can find is Linux version 2.6.38.8-xbox0.11.1, compiled on Feb 16, 2012 so i'm assuming that version would be fine for 12.04

(i can't figure out how to get newer versions compiled otherwise i'd be trying a newer distro, maybe void-ppc)

installing Ubuntu 11.10 on the xbox instead, since there are already install scripts for it so it's easier for me, still gonna see how far i can go in terms of distro support (maybe trying to compile some of the free60 3.x patches, or getting the 5.12 patchset to compile to a working kernel)

Follow

it took a few hours, but i was able to get it to boot! most of that time was figuring out how to get it to boot from an external USB hard drive, since the in-build kernel initrd doesn't account for that
