Hi All,
I am novice to kernel development and Android. Trying my best to learn for a project which involves new kernel module addition to existing Android. I neither have access to kernel source nor to ramdisk of the particular android board (Latest MStar Andriod Chipset). All I have been given is a xyzdriver.zip which contains .c, make kconfig files. I learnt somewhere that this xyzdriver directory needs to be placed to /driver directory in the kernel source before we give make followed by make modules commands. Can some body help me if I am on right track. How to use the .ko file this driver need to be loaded while Android boot. It something required to be done in ramdisk as well for this perpose. Suggestions highly appreciated. Many thanks.

What happened to the repo? BBQ doesn't seem to be listed in the arch linux unofficial repo list...

Better that way. Server bandwidth is not unlimited.

Maybe I'm being silly, but trying to make 6.0.1 aosp and it's telling me I need Java 8 (Probably for Jack). Can anyone recommend the best way to go about updating? Also I was told there'd be no package problems with this distro :P

Every once in a while a system update, (pacman -Syu), results in compile errors. Recently compiling Android M ROM keeps failing: http://hastebin.com/horaliqeja.lua

 glibc (local/glibc 2.23-1 (base) & local/lib32-glibc 2.23-1)
 binutils (local/binutils 2.26-3 (base-devel)).

Following a comment on https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1611284#p1611284
I tried replacing prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/host/x86_64-linux-glibc2.15-4.8/x86_64-linux/bin/ld.gold with the symlink to /usr/bin/ld.gold
also tried replacing ld with symlink but neither fixed the issue for me, usually an update to glibc et al is pushed which eventually fixes issue.
Is there a solution/workaround to the issue or do I have to wait for next update to these packages?

Thank you for your time

ROM compiled after the following change to art / build/Android.common_build.mk: ifeq ($(WITHOUT_HOST_CLANG),false)

Not sure if it is best solution.
Also, why all of a sudden this change is needed?

BBQLinux is a user-friendly Linux distribution made for Android developers and everyone who likes it. It has everything on board to build AOSP or AOSP-based Distributions like OmniROM or CyanogenMod. BBQLinux is based on Arch Linux and is using a Rolling Release Development Model which means it’s getting continually updated and upgraded.

It will ask you to replace android-sdk, android-sdk-platform-tools and android-sdk-build-tools. Simply answer with "Y". After that you can install android-sdk from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html to /opt/android-sdk and run the SDK Manager. Online. Pages: 1 ...

"gcc-5.3.0-5 is up to date" Looks like it.

I've googled my butt off trying to find a build guide for this distro. Maybe I'm using the wrong key words. Is there a android build environment setup guide for this BBQLinux? One that's up to date preferably.

Hello everyone,
I have a huge problem with the distribution BBQLinux Mate edition.
POraticamente is as if they had pressed the arrow up, if unplugging the keyboard, remains perentemente "clicked."
This does not happen when I write the lyrics (as now).
I just formatted the whole BBQLinux partition to reinstall it from scratch, but to no avail ..
Can you help me? with this problem it is impossible for me to work and I have to move on ...

running into two issues

trying to update the Android SDK get a permission denied when it tried to install the selection. couldn't create /opt/Android-sdk/temp folder

i'm sure it's something simple, but damned it I can find and answer


also, I'm getting these 2 (errors?) (warnings?) (events?) when running systemctrl --failed

- dhcpcd@enp0s25.service loaded failed failed dhcpcd on enp0s25
- systemd-modules-load.service loaded failed failed Load Kernel Module


I started reading about the first one, but it seemed like answers were all over the place for what it could be and what to do about it. Do you guys have a good starting point?

Well, it's taken nearly the whole weekend to get this ditro personalized, and I have to say.....This is awesome! I am so happy I found this and switched to Arch! You guys have done a phenomenal jib with this! I've never used any Arch distro, so this whole experience has been totally new to me, I've been reading a ton on the Arch-wiki, just a few last things to do, and I'm solid, and ready to roll :)

I did a dumb. I changed .bashrc....without backing it up (I really have no idea why....I back up EVERYTHING....all the time...)....:/ would someone, please, paste the default text for the newest 2-??-16-cinnamon?

Edit: orrrrr point to(or post) instructions on how to pull it off of the liveUSB?

Hello, How is everyone dealing with maven dependencies CyanogenMod introduced March 8?

I installed maven like this sudo pacman -S maven
and my terminal output is 

mvn -version
Apache Maven 3.3.9 (NON-CANONICAL_2015-11-23T13:17:27+03:00_root; 2015-11-23T10:17:27+00:00)
Maven home: /opt/maven
Java version: 1.7.0_95, vendor: Oracle Corporation
Java home: /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk/jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8
OS name: "linux", version: "4.4.3-1-arch", arch: "amd64", family: "unix"

but still cant get passed this error, when trying to compile CyanogenMod 

Error: JAVA_HOME is not defined correctly.
  We cannot execute /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin/java
vendor/cm/build/core/maven_artifact.mk:42: recipe for target '/home/katinatez/android/cm-13.0-temasek/out/target/common/obj/JAVA_LIBRARIES/ambientsdk_intermediates/com.cyngn.ambient.ambientsdk-1.4.0.aar' failed

and here is my java -version terminal output

java -version
java version "1.7.0_95"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.4) (Arch Linux build 7.u95_2.6.4-1-x86_64)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.95-b01, mixed mode)

Any clues as to get passed this error, and set export PATH= in ~/.bashrc to default java since we use a java switcher?

Thanks for reply
