Hi Friends,

I am trying to do a study on replacing the OS beneath android from linux to
solaris, so i identified few areas where I need to do a lot of work, the
most important of all is Bionic libc.

I read through one of the mails where Digit has specified about *huge*
changes to the bionic libc, so I am digging into the libc right now to
identify the changes required in libc, I found that I need to replace the
existing linux headers with corresponding solaris headers, but that exercise
is getting more and more cumborsome as I am going into more details... so
first I have few questions regarding that :-

1. How linux headers are organised in libc ??
2. How the linux headers available in bionic/libc/kernel (these headers we
can upgrade also using some python scripts) are different from
bionic/libc/include ??

3. How to identify those linux headers which are getting used by libc
implementation (like which have system calls related stuff) and those linux
headers which are getting used by userland and generated by python scripts

4. What is the right approach to proceed further ??

Please help me with some pointers.

Thanks & Regards

1. Coordinates of touch/click on Home Screen Widget


I have a widget and I would like to detect position where user click
on some part of the widget's bitmap. I didn't found any way how to
detect coordinates of the touch on RemoteViews.

Is anybody aware of some trick how to detect it. Only idea I have is
create layout with grid of transparent buttons, put by widget's bitmap
as background of such a layout and to every button set PendingIntent.

Any nicer idea?




2. Host not resolved issue

     If i try to open connection for http://localhost:5001 using
HttpURLConnection in my android app, i am getting host not resolved issue in
my android emulator.
Internet connection is working in my emulator and I am able to browse the
web sites using my emulator.

I tried below options

1. Created new AVD

2. Restarted both Eclipse IDE and AVD

3. Instead of localhost , i used ipaddress of the machine

None of the above options  didn't work for me.

Could anyone help me on the same.
