 Hi to everyone.

I'm a beginner with android, so i'm following all the steps in the dev
giude and so on.
At the moment,
 I downloaded the sdk 1.5,
 installed ADT plug-in for eclipse,
got the source code (repo sync),
used "make" to build the code.

NOW I'd like to make android running on the desktop i'm using (x86,
ubuntu 8.1).

What should I do to begin?
If it's not possible to run on my device, how can i set the emulator
for an x86 configuration?

1. What API should I use ? Local Service Binding ? Remote Service Binding ? Handler ?)

Hi Tim,
There's a local service binding example in ApiDemos which I'm pretty sure
does exactly that:

However, I think you're better off using AlarmManager to start a service
periodically. This is a common practice, and you should be able to find more
information about it in this and other forums.



2. view visibility callbacks

is there something that gets called off a View when its visibility 
changes? i'm not seeing an onVisibilityChanged() or equivalent in the 
docs or code.
