 not to sound self-serving but, in the last couple days, i've had a
few emails from people commenting on a wiki page i put up a while back
on how to install android on ubuntu 10.04: 

not sure why the sudden flurry of interest (did someone link to it?)
but if that page is helpful to anyone, you're welcome to it.

  i haven't looked at it in a few weeks, perhaps i should verify that
it's still correct and if anyone wants to add anything to it, drop me
a note.  (i'm probably going to end up moving it out of the wiki and
under the tutorials tab on my web site soon, but i'll put in a
redirection link.)

  anyway, if you find any typoes, let me know.

my application only?


Can I use 'android.nfc.action.TECH_DISCOVERED' with a custom Tech inside the 


2. NFSroot compilation error

Has anyone else run into this?

-  branch 2.6.36
fs/nfs/nfsroot.c:403: error: __setup_str_nfs_root_setup causes a
section type conflict
fs/nfs/nfsroot.c:403: error: __setup_str_nfs_root_setup causes a
section type conflict
make[2]: *** [fs/nfs/nfsroot.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [fs/nfs] Error 2
make: *** [fs] Error 2

Googling around revealed this as an old bug but nothing reported
recently. The mail lists indicated that this may be a compiler bug.

Is there a bug related to this in android-ndk-r5b/toolchains/arm-
androideabi-4.4.3  ??
