In my last post I discussed that the lack of GNU on android devices was limiting the software available and didn’t bring new libraries to linux. Unfortunately for me I don’t have a MeeGo device and am stuck with the Java beast.
One of the things that bothered my the most was that I could not sync my music using Unison like I do across my other three computers. If I was on MeeGo it would be as simple as
apt-get install unison.
The solution for this was installing GNU on my phone, the basic concept is that you have a Linux kernel so if you install the user-land you can simply
chroot into that environment and enjoy the true GNU/Linux experience.
