Modern Android NDK (see android-ndk-r6/docs/CPU-ARCH-ABIS.html)
require at least armv5 processor.

hi everyone,

I don't know if anyone is using one of the later versions of navit
currently with success. On my system navit.apks broke around september
last year. Now on the navit list there is a ticket on this, where the
developers explain some of the changes that have happend last year in
their build process (changes in NDK and automake). Does anyone have
already questions at hand how the issue could be solved.

The ticket is http://trac.navit-project.org/ticket/1021


And this is one of the latest replies:

I'm unsure if we were switching NDK version used in build process in
August, 2011, but that switch may explain the failure. Nevertheless, I
found at least one posting about Navit's ability to workaround that
limitation, see http://code.google.com/p/android-on-freerunner/issues/detail?id=142
.

Also, we had switched to to the new Makefile building platform, and
last release known to work was built with autotools, and first non-
working release was built with cmake. There may be some issue in
makefiles built with cmake.

And, we may have begin to use some NDK feature that is internally
built using some CPU instructions supported by ARMv5 and higher CPUs.

I'd suggest testing roadmap like this:

check if automake build of current svn works on freerunner
check if r4696 built with autotools with current NDK works on
freerunner
check if r4696 built with cmake with current NDK works on
freerunner

Any result may help diagnosing the problem and lead to solution.

I won't be able to try above steps in near future, so please test them
if you have some spare time and effort.



I have the r4696.apk if that helps


best regards

robin

Hi
For info,
Current builds ( Cupcake and Froyo ) has not NDK included.
More then year ago I try to make build with NDK included ( as it was explaned in  http://code.google.com/p/android-on-freerunner/issues/detail?id=142 ) However I did not get success with application ( FBReaderj ) for which I tried make such build.
May be someone has more success?

Hi
Find here: http://serdar-dere.net/~ran/android-on-freerunner-froyo-sd-ndk-daily-20120408.tar.gz
my attempt to add ndk to latest froyo ( follow
http://code.google.com/p/android-on-freerunner/issues/detail?id=142 )
No help me with FBReader ( I think that FRReader compiled without
cmake -DEXTRA_COMPILER_FLAGS:STRING=-march=armv4t )
Please, test the build with navit. I have not expirience with navit
and may miss samething.

Hi Ran,

Are you submitting these changes to the repo? I haven't seen any code
changes.

Thanks,

Niels.

Hello,
No. NDK build is too experimental!!!
Only stable http://serdar-dere.net/~ran/android-on-freerunner-froyo-daily-20120330.tar.gz
and http://serdar-dere.net/~ran/android-on-freerunner-froyo-sd-daily-20120330.tar.gz
have been builded from repo.

Hmm...

Are you only submitting your changes to the froyo-sd repo or also the
froyo repo?

I have not seen any of your previous changes on the froyo repo (unless
I'm missing something).

Could you commit to the froyo repo too?

Thanks,

Niels

Hi.
Both, froyo and froyo-sd repos is in same stage. I produce
http://serdar-dere.net/~ran/android-on-freerunner-froyo-daily-2012033...
and http://serdar-dere.net/~ran/android-on-freerunner-froyo-sd-daily-2012...
from scratch for both repos.
I think you misunderstending that in kernel_openmoko we have froyo-sd
and android-gta02-2.6.32 ( not froyo ) branchs. I do not know a
reason, but it is.
It is "screenshot" from Gitorious:
Thursday March 29 2012

Do you have some issue about?

Hi Alexandre,

I can see the changes on Gitorious. But I'm not sure the changes are
ending up in my local froyo repo.

My local repo is based on

repo init -u git://gitorious.org/android-on-freerunner/freerunner_platform_manifest.git
-b froyo

So I'm not taking the froyo-sd one.

Are your patches ending up in both repos?

Thanks,

Niels

Hello

I hope - yes, patches ending up in both repos. I have produced
starting from
and repo init -u git://gitorious.org/android-on-freerunner/freerunner_platform_manifest.git
-b froyo-sd
For me both ( SD and NAND ) builds is same.

Hi andrea!
I on't think that there is any link to download android on freerunner, because, as far as I know, the project is dead. If you want, this evening i'll look for it on my computer, but i can't promise anything, maybe i have an old version or i haven't anything.

Have a good day!
Matteo

looks like all Ran's stuff is here:-

https://code.google.com/p/android-on-freerunner/downloads/list

I'd recommend the cupcake SDcard version, which works well, although it's heavy on battery life. The general opinion on the froyo version was that it was too slow.

Sorry I tried to find it in my old backups but i didn't find anything with froyo, only two cupcakes (or better: a cupcakes and a RC1, but as far as I remember this should be cupcake too) and an eclair versione that I named "sanvy-eclair" time ago, so i cannot say if it was official or an experiment. Anyway, I uploaded it on dropbox (it's about 70mb), if you have any trouble downloading it just let me know ;)


have a good evening!

Matteo
