 Hi All,

I am newbie to android developement.
I previously worked on Wince driver development.

I want to start driver development for Android.

I have installed ubuntu, and got the git repository of Android, as per
the instructions given at the site ,
I am able to launch the emulator and also installed Eclipse.

However the notes published there indicate application development.
It will be easy for me to start, if someone can give some pointers to
start with the driver development for Android.

 Hi Sudheer,

You can download the goldfish (this is the emulator version) kernel
from the following link (click the snapshot tab to get the kernel
source into your desired path) ;a=tree;h=65bd5239eb2dba3024e5c3fd136a832b544c4783;hb=132305ed227e69bd7498c8a30d40a338a23a4afe

Make sure  to build the goldfish kernel separately.

1. How to blur a rectangular region of the screen

How can one blur a rectangular region of the screen (region could
intersect with more than one activity's windows)... we are able to get
blur working for a particular view itself by implementing a custom
onDraw() method and Paint.setMaskFilter() --> BlurMaskFilter but can't
figure out how to apply a blur to another activity's view.

If this is just not possible, then please demonstrate how to take a
snapshot of the screen so that we can manipulate that bitmap image as
part of our blur activity.  I've only seen the snapshot capability
offered on the WebView but it's a very useful utility to have for all
views in general.


2. OpenGLES 1.1

Currently Android supports OpenGLES version 1.0 and a bit; that is, 
there are some 1.1 constructs, but not others. We have an application 
that requires full 1.1 support.

Is there a known timeframe for 1.1 support? That is, something along the 
lines of (next release | some time later | only on devices with 3D 
accelerators)? It would be useful to know for planning purposes.
