do you need a native linux, or the linux can be runned chrooted ?
from what i know the cups has been ported on some devices (running android)
yes, a chrooted linux can use wifi and 3g and also should be able to use cups
the chrooted linux should run acceptable
i will start tomorrow some tests with debian, and ubuntu
Ps: It is very hard to compile a native one 🙂 as we lack the support from arnova.
To make things clear:
What problem i am addressing
I have created One-Sale application to sell products form archos5 IT, it is web application running on Apache/PHP.
Printing function is very significant.
Program performs following functions:
1. Has database of stores (synchronised form server over 3G)
2. Has database of products, (synchronized from derver over 3G)
4. Uploads transaction information to server (product sales, product returns transactions are document based)
5. prints out Supporting documents on HP laser jet printer with PCL4-5 support over wifi (python based procedures)
If someone can develop android APP tat undertakes that functionality, then it would also be good.
Unfortunately Archos 5IT-s are out production/ stock. And i need to migrate to new system.
What kind of support do we need to get working native linux compilation on it?
I managed to install Debian on my tablet which can be accesed via a terminal from the tablet or ushing adb shell from the computer
W: debian stable is already mounted. Entering chroot...
I: Executing /etc/init.android/rc_mount.sh
I: Entering chroot...
I: Executing /etc/init.android/rc_enter.sh
root@Galoula-ARMEL:~# cd test
bash: cd: test: No such file or directory
bash: bg: current: no such job
cp: missing file operand
Try `cp --help' for more information.
I just installed ubuntu 9.04 it installed ok
same thing as debian, you can use it from terminal, or adb shell, i will check in the feature for a interface version,
yes it was a chrooted linux installed in the background (the boot partition was on the sd card)
the app is available on market, i will post the name of it today
So, if i run apache on it will i be able to access it from android?
in this case i will have background system running on android still accessible through android browser
is it localhost? i miean does it have different ip for networking? is it possible to ping web resources from there?
I came up with lots of questions 🙂
I can test, but i can`t offer you a date
i am busy at this moment with the university (exams etc)
