PostPosted: Tue 25 Nov 2014, 11:56    Post_subject:  Puppy on an Android phone (galaxy s3)
Sub_title: a small proof of concept project (now with video)
 

This started as a puppy chroot'd over fedora chroot'd over android but it was lame to use another distro as "bridge", now i have a full working chroot'd filesystem with working X server (framebuffer).


So... since after like 8 months of (NOT)hard work my "puppy-on-android" project was a success, now i'm working on this:

- Android app to deploy a puppy SFS or IMG (main system + devx) chroot'd over android
- Xorg (and/or VNC) server scripts to set up the environment for puppy.
- init and "shutdown" scripts for puppy.
- A *GOOD* VNC server with support for different languages and layouts.
- A good GTK theme (phone screen size fucks with the resolution and DPI)
- Modded JWM for better use and navigation of the screen.
This will be a chrooted system running over the android kernel just because i don't feel like compiling the whole linux kernel, making it compatible with more than 1 phone and creating a custom ROM out of that.

Will be compiling and testing on:
- Samsung Galaxy S3 (i9300)
- Samsung Galaxy S4 (i9505)


Update: Touchscreen working, integrated keyboard working:

Also here is a X remote display test video, with android ui and puppy running in coexistence.

Video of the "ghost" puppylinux on the android framebuffer:

PROOF OF CONCEPT VIDEO:

Sharing this just for giggles and amusement, maybe will try to make some "puppy-phone" in the future, who knows? since the galaxy S3 quad core processor allows for really nice compiling speeds i'm already doing some naughty arm stuffs.

It would be awesome if this could be done with a kindle fire hd.

The framebuffer didn't worked as expected, gonna see if i can do something like a layer over the android gui or something.

Recompiling Xorg right now, maybe will be sharing some .pets i'm making on the run (so far: x11vnc and Python 2.7.8 ).
Planning on update the glibc and gcc, already working on some small gtk-apps to have better control of the system (onscreen keyboard, etc)

Funny thing: as far as i know no ARM chroot'd distro has made the touchscreen work on the framebuffer xorg, if i get it to work it will be a nice step for puppy.

So beyond my league, but very exciting. Hope you keep playing samedog as it's quite an unexplored realm.
