Android is considered by many as the most successful Linux distribution ever.  However, the lack of many Linux libraries makes moving Linux applications to the Android environment a difficult proposition.  In this presentation we will discuss the use of the Android chroot mechanism to create a Linux oasis in the middle of your Android platform.  You'll see techniques for moving applications, including graphical applications, into Android from an ARM-based Linux distribution that will allow both Android and Linux applications to be running simultaneously on the same device.  These techniques will support anything from running a single application all the way to installing a full-blown Linux distribution complete with X onto the Android device.
