    I was wondering if it's possible to run optware along with Ubuntu chroot.
    I have an. Ext3fs partition created with Tailor.

    I also search for them, I wanted to see if I could upgrade to 13.04 that is ready x-pda say.

    Ubuntu 13.04 Final Release - xda-developers

    they installed dual boot, but I want it to run on webOS.

    if ext3 exists physically/partitioned then optware does idd co-exist, if no ext3 exists then optware just creates a "fake" ext3fs loop mount (think of a hardfile that emulators/virtualbox uses etc) so that no re-partitioning is required.

    optware just needs any reference to ext3fs, you have one so it will use it, if you didnt a fake small one is made, either way works, things just go a bit weird if you later delete your real ext3fs with tailor, optware will probably go a bit weird until you remove/re-install to re-create a fake/temp ext3fs.

    if you want ubuntu 13.x in regular ubuntu chroot then just sudo a release-upgrade with the -d option i think it is from terminal and it should pickup 13.x

    been a while since ive done it, easy enough to google around for doing update-releases to 13.x its the options afterwards im not sure of offhand.

    for optware I'm not using the loopback fs so does that mean that I can install ubuntu chroot right alongside it?

    if you have a loop ext3fs or a proper partitioned one then all is well, the only restriction/problem would be the size of the partition, if you have space then optware and/or chroot will install just fine.

    also the 3 different chroots share the ext3fs space but dont overwrite each other, they remain seperate and safe to install with each other.
