I would prefer native, thou have not experienced chrooted device performance and thus do not know weather it is better or not.

As i understand chrooted linux will take advantage of native android 3g and wifi... will it be able to communicate with wifi printer through CUPS?

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?
