AndroiLinux.com is dedicated to the development of Linux applications running on top of Android operating system.

About Author – Max Lee

Back in July 6th 2010, I decided that it would be possible to put Ubuntu linux on Nexus One since there were already numerous Debian ports to G1 Phone and Ubuntu is Debian-based.

Why are you doing this?

I think being able to run Linux operating systems on Android brings a new level of possibilities never imagined before.

For example, can you imagine in 20 years that over 50% of web servers in the world running off these old Android smartphones that run linux?  It’s certainly possible at the pace our technology is developing.

My goal is to put various different Linux operating systems running on Android.  I am specifically talking about Chrooted Linux OS on Android.  We could replace Android with Linux completely but then you wouldn’t be able to use your Android phone as a phone anymore.

Android/Linux Development

Bringing linux apps to Android brings a ton of more free software to existing Android platform.  If we can figure out a way to run Ubuntu in the background while Android runs super fast, then we can essentially double the capacity and capabilities of Android.  For example, run a web server off your Android device or maybe run an automated home security system, all integrated with Android/Linux services.

This is just a site I started because it interests me.   Please feel free to subscribe to our e-mail list so you can stay updated on my latest Android Linux adventures.

  6. Installed however ssh wont work so nothing else does keeps saying connection refused works in cmd but nothing else

  7. Fixed that problem now :) so this is based on which distro and could you do a smaller version say Jaunty or D.S.L for smaller devices??

  8. Made my own (bootfedora).
    Tell me what you think :D
    Also, feel free to contact me. I have a lot of ideas about this, including quite the opposite to what you said:
    “…Android with Linux completely but then you wouldn’t be able to use your Android phone as a phone anymore.”
    I know that’s not true at all. It would take a lot of work but you could most definitely replace the Android OS and use your phone as a phone. Most likely, however, you’d need a separate pre-compiled “image” (zImage and a rootfs) for each specific device.
