Using Chroot to Bring Linux applications to Android - Mike Anderson, PTR Group

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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.
