I booted Ubuntu 13.10 in my Android tablet and works good but after installing some programs I have this error

u0_a206@Android:/ $
u0_a206@Android:/ $ su
root@Android:/ # /data/data/com. Zpwebsites. Linuxonandroid/files/busybox chroot /data/local/mnt /root/init.sh
Config file loaded

New 'X' desktop is localhost: 0

Starting applications specified in /home/ubuntu/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/ubuntu/.vnc/localhost:0.log

If you see the message 'New 'X' Desktop is localhost: 0' then you are ready to VNC into your Ubuntu OS.

If connection from a different machine on the same network as the Android device use the address below:
wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

If using androidVNC, change the 'Color Format' setting to 24-bit colour, and once you've VNC'd in, change the 'input mode' to touchpad (in settings)

To shut down the Linux environment, just enter 'exit' at this terminal - and WAIT for all shutdown routines to finish!

This is very simple to fix.

invoke-rc.d(Invoke an init script) is unable to find the initscript /etc/init.d/modemmanager

invoke-rc.d: unknown initscript,/etc/init.d/modemmanager not found.

Simply touch /etc/init.d/modemmanager To create it.

  • Had the same problem installing ubuntu-desktop with tasksel into a dbootstrap 14.04. This solved it along with an equivilent command touch /etc/init.d/whoopsie Thanks

First download the modemmanager package by running,

apt-get download modemmanager

After that completely remove the unconfigured modemmanager package by running the below command,

sudo dpkg -P modemmanager

Then do an upgrade,

sudo apt-get upgrade

In case if you failed to connect to the internet after uninstalling modemmanager, don't worry we already downloaded the modemmanager package.It will be located on your home directory.Install it by running,

sudo dpkg -i filename.deb
  • You booted Ubuntu on android.This solution may or maynot works. Mar 1, 2014 at 5:47
  • He already had modemmanager, the upgrade was just reconfiguring it, but in was improperley configured, so a simple fix it to make an empty initscript
