One can of course run an Android x86 VM, but having to
launch the whole thing just to run a small handful of apps seems to be
overkill. Also, I have yet to be able to get the sound to work in
Android apps under such a setting.
I really just want to run a few small Android apps under
Slackware. Any suggestions on how to do this?
How would you install Android into an x86_64 VM? I've never installed
android with an iso file before.
As mentioned, it is fully possible to install Android x86
( https://www.android-x86.org/ ) from an .iso-file in some VM like qemu.
I once used to do that when I had an Android app which I couldn't run on
It would also be possible to install the entire Android SDK to get access
to a big number of Android versions in emulated phones (once again this
is built using qemu to emulate an ARM-based phone), but I would consider
that to be even more overkill.
It was many years since I had the need to run Android apps in Slackware
and back then I used Android X86 and/or Remix OS in qemu which I started
with something like:
qemu-system-x86_64_1.1.1 -enable-kvm -m 4096 -snapshot -vga std -smp 4
However, I never had the need for any sound in my Android apps.
