Comments are useless, the picture talks by itself.

Do not know if this will be under Open Source licence. However, what I know is that Android is under APL 2.0. (Well, if remember well).
So, we are at least in the halfway.

She ‘s right !

Dear *,

Two days ago, my wife asked me the following question :

As Android is based on Linux, does it exist a mean to run – natively – apk – Android Application – on Fedora without using the Android SDK Emulator ?

I admit I did not know at that time the answer neither the interest.

Well after all, apk is made with java and java applications can be ran on Fedora….
However it can not and it is sad.

Nevertheless our friends of Ubuntu had the idea : “Android Execution Environment” .
And I believe now it is a really really good one however it is not available yet. 😦

Coincidence or not, my wife asked me that question without knowing Apple was going to announce their I-Pad from Apple which is more and less the same idea.

Now, I see the interest and it is HUGE !
For my part, I am convinced this is one of the ways to go.

Android and Fedora….

January 28, 2010


Dear *,

As my wife is currently working on a development of an Android Application, so she charged me to install the SDK on a Fedora.
Unfortunately, no RPM was available for that. 😦

So I tried to create one from the source however it was no so simple than that. 😦
Firstly the SDK source code was not easy to find due to the fact that it is included in the entire Android platform project instead of to be on separate repository.
FYI, the source code is available Source.android.com.
Then I followed the procedure to get the code – http://source.android.com/download – but I was a little bit lost to retrieve what I was looking for.
I tried to make the package but I gave up after four hours by lack of time and principally cause I had to respond quickly to my wife request.

So, I installed it with the tgz and the standard procedure provided by our friends of Google in order to respond to her request quickly. – Well, I do not like install things like that –
Nonetheless, I will retry to create one. I will keep you in touch.
