I read from multiple websites that it's possible to download Java 8 on a Chromebook without having to use crouton. I do already have crouton but for matters of convenience, I wanted to be able to use Java 8 without having to switch over to Ubuntu. So, I read that all you to do is access the Chrome terminal and type "shell", press enter. Type "sudo su", press enter. Then, type "mount -o remount,exec,rw /" and press enter. I can't seem to get past this step though. Here's what I get after typing all of that:
crosh> shell chronos@localhost / $ sudo su localhost / # mount -o remount,exec,rw / mount: cannot remount /dev/dm-0 read-write, is write-protected
I've tried looking this up, but I'm a novice programmer and just started learning how to use Linux. Needless to say, I can't keep up with some of the other forum posts that have asked similar questions.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
