Hey all,

I recently updated my Debian install via apt-get. After rebooting my Debian install stops at the boot screen and goes no further.

Is there any way I can mount and access the Debian partition from Android?

I'm on regular dual boot with Android as primary boot and also rooted, X27.

Thanks in advance for any help.

do you get far enough that you could ssh in, using your charging cable connected to a usb port on another computer?

From my Mac's terminal what would the hostname be over USB for the Gemini?

I got it!!! I was trying ssh gemini@gemini.local and finally got it at the beginning of boot.

Thanks again... Fixing now!!!

fwiw, if you need to ssh in again (and in my experience, even if you don't need to, you'll want to, because for a lot of things it's simply easier to do it from a bigger machine) you can get in via

CODE
ssh gemini@10.15.19.82

good luck in getting it all working. though it's early days yet, you can get linux working very nicely and usefully on the gemini, though there are still some places that need lots of work (for instance, if anyone has phone/cellular data working well on the gadget, i haven't heard about it).
