Android prebuilt toolchain does not work with busybox

 Dear all:

I am a newbie in the Kernel land.  I would like to use the prebuilt
toolchain included in the Android release to build BUSYBOX.  I have
lots of compilation error, and I need help.

I understand that I could use CodeSourcery toolchain to build the
busybox, and create a rootfs for the kernel.

Do you think it makes sense to carry two different tool sets, and
switch it back and forward during the development?
Also, is it safe to do this if a new toolchain is being released?

I am a bit confused, and need help badly.

Host=Linux Centos5

Android prebuilt toolchain does not work with busybox

 I case a static build of busybox is good enough for you, you can
follow this tutorial: 
 http://wiki.androidx86.org/index.php?title=Installing_BusyBox 
With the tool chain questions I can't help you...

 I think this has something to do with BusyBox being dependent on libc,
which Android's toolchain doesn't have.

1. Attn Google - How does licensing work in transitioning from a free app to a paid app?

How about charging for the apps using a "service model"

You could name you apps like

com.foobar.theapp2009q1
 com.foobar.theapp2009q2
 com.foobar.theapp2009q3 com.foobar.theapp2009q4

When version X expires, the app can launch an Intent to point the user to
the newer version. This way it should be seamless.

This model should work for some apps (the "service" type, such as
dating/matchmaking, accessing real state info database, etc) but not others
(such as games, which people think once they paid they own the right to it
forever).

If you provide a good service, I think people won't mind paying $0.49 per
quarter for it ...

2. ImageView.setColorFilter and/or LightingColorFilter- how to use them?

It looks like the int values can range from -255 to 255.  I was
mislead, the docs has a range of values of 0 to 255.
