Anyone managed to build the Android emulator from its official source, on the current stable version of Slackware? As of this post, I am using Slackware64 14, and Android requires Java 6 and would not even start to build until I downgraded to the last official Java 6 Slackware package. Then the emulator build has some problem with Slackware's current stable version of Perl.
update: apparently the official Android SDK has an emulator binary for GNU/Linux. So, I have that running, but have some questions for it... I guess I will have to go over to androidquestions.org, though I really disagree with the existence of another site for it, since Android is in fact a Linux distribution... of course I disagreed in the first place of this site also not being called something like gnu-linuxquestions.org... if it was, then it would make sense for the Android site to be separate, since Android is basically non-GNU.
update 2: I have been reading about setting up network access in the Android emulator. Apparently the emulator is QEMU, which I have seen complicated descriptions of setting up network access for. One description says use OpenVPN and bridge-tools, and Slackware has the former, but not latter... is there any other way to do it (or can it even be done in the emulator itself)?
