android emulator

hi

simple…i tried genymotion. problem is when personal use license expires (?!) u can’t run anymore any android image. shashlik can’t emerge because of errors (if i can remember…few days pass). anbox needs unity-gentoo layman with profile. will this f up my calculate kde system? any1 use any of this and give me a hint?

thanks

It shouldn’t. I posted here few tips but i’m not sure if this will work when layman comes with its profile.

from your post https://www.calculate-linux.org/boards/15/topics/36323 i tried emerge /-a …

"
!!! ‘/-a’ is not claimed by any package.
"

"
cat /etc/portage/package.mask/custom
/::
"
that is one command (cat /etc/…) or what?

thanks

That /-a is a typo, it should be just -a (emerge --ask)

x y wrote

cat /etc/portage/package.mask/custom
/::
that is one command (cat /etc/…) or what?

Result of that cat is this

*/*::<name of layman>

This is how /etc/portage/package.mask/custom should look like, so if layman is named “foo” replace with “foo” so it will look like that

(...)
*/*::foo

This is usefull to be sure that system updates from calculate won’t be disrupted (they shouldn’t). One caveat, if you do this you had to unmask dependencies for every package from certain overlay.
There is shortcut for emerge to automacally generate entries, later you had to accept it (emerge will print help on how to do that)

 --autounmask-write 

You can read emerge/calculate documentation and that https://oleeekchoff.blogspot.com/2012/06/use-overlay-for-specific-packages-only.html

very useful link

thanks

Also Genymotion can’t run inside a virtual machine, because virtualbox can’t pass on OpenGL support. Although you can go for KO player emulator https://filehippo.com/download_ko-player/ or NOX player 6 https://www.bignox.com/ as these are a good alternatives of genymotion android emulator.
