@dos Now those apps from fdroid can have a proper place to live.
@dos nice, i saw an arch linux install guide for the L5 and i might make an arch linux image with this. care to post a guide on how you did this?
@ethoslibre It's anbox. Mostly followed the instructions, then tried to figure out why it crashes/doesn't work. It's not really in usable state yet, just a quick PoC. Mostly kernel defconfig (https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-next/merge_requests/56), switching to iptables-legacy and some hacking to get root inside the container to fix network routing (`adb root` just crashed adbd... :D). Also, it's running via XWayland for now, as pure Wayland doesn't work for some reason, and this comes with its own set of issues.
@dos im familiar with anbox, going to try this when i get batch fir. That's gonna take a bit tho. Hopefully more competitors come to the market with fully free software in the near future.
@dos Is it a virtual machine?
@ashwinvis No, it's a container (anbox).
@dos Are you running NewPipe on PureOS ?
@Yanux Yup! With anbox.
@dos actually I would love that de could have an app like newpipe in linux. SmTube doesn't download audio and video from YT
@dos nice, SPURV might be even more fitting for android emulation on wayland: https://www.collabora.com/news-and-blog/blog/2019/05/02/running-android-and-wayland-on-embedded-devices/
@agx I want to try it some day too, but Anbox was already packaged in Debian and I'm lazy :)
@dos which laptop is this?
@dos Looks great mate!
I didn't succeed in my spectacular battle with Anbox. Its UI just closes automatically on Debian, opens after ~5 tries. Expired altogether after a few days. :(
