You can't be serious?
Unless I'm not quite understanding the process here, how can you call interacting with an OS over VNC an "installation".

I could do this, with any OS, on any VNC client- on any device. But surely you're already aware of that?

While I do admire the fact that it works, I must say I'm getting bored of these XYZ-OS running on the ZXY phone/computer/potato.
Apart from a demonstration of it bein possible, what's the use? I see no real reason for having this on a phone, or Android on the Eee. A phone is a phone and an OS made for a phone will always be more usefull than a desktop OS/GUI (same goes for mobile phone OS on a computer).
All that said, I'm disappointed nobody made an Android build for my HTC TyTN - get on in you tinkerers!

eevan - Many comments on sites that have blogged my tutorial seem to be getting the wrong end of the stick. This is not connecting to a remote desktop on another machine! This is x11 and LXDE Desktop running LOCALLY on the G1 device, the reason I had to connect back to LOCALHOST on the device (rather cleverly, if I do say so myself) is because there are no drivers. This circumnavigates the need for drivers.

Hope that clears it up?

hey ghostwalker,

I quickly realized that after giving the full article a read- my bad.

But wow, that's a really intelligent solution to the inherent problem is lacking video drivers. Kudos to you for the out of the box thinkin!


Well done,
e

In the article the word treacle was used. I actually had to look that one up. If anyone else was confused, see definition below from www.webster.com.

"2 chiefly British a: molasses b: a blend of molasses, invert sugar, and corn syrup used as syrup ócalled also golden syrup"

Fantastic. Now i can experience the joy of intermittent "localhost:10.0 broken" on my PC and phone. GUI's are for nOObs.

Not quite, Golden Syrup is the yummy golden coloured stuff you put in desserts, Treacle is it's bitter, stickier, not-even-edible-raw half-brother. It's black, extremely sticky and gloopy, and is often used to relate to something that whilst does move, does so extremely slowly and with difficulty. A common phrase would be "running through treacle", implying moving with great difficulty. I had no idea it was chiefly British. What does everyone else call it?

Ha! Everyone reading Pratchett should know treacle (see also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treacle_mining) and, really, everyone should be reading Pratchett :-P
