Tutorial: Android app build environment with Eclipse, PhoneGap (Ubuntu 11.04)

Up
vote
Down

This tutorial describes how you can set up an development environment for building Android apps on an Ubuntu 11.04 desktop using Eclipse, the Android SDK, and PhoneGap. I will describe how to build Android apps from the command line with PhoneGap and from the GUI with Eclipse and PhoneGap and how to test them in an Android emulator and on a real Android device. PhoneGap allows you to develop your Android applications using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (e.g. with JavaScript libraries such as jQuery/jQTouch), and it will turn these web apps into native Android apps (in fact, PhoneGap supports multiple platforms such as Android, iPhone, Palm, Windows Mobile, Symbian, so you can use the same sources to create apps for multiple platforms). read more...

Ubuntu 11.04, code-named Natty Narwhal, is the latest version of the popular Linux distribution. Its release marks the end of Ubuntu Netbook Edition (UNE).

Tutorial: Install Ubuntu 11.04 on encrypted LVM

Up
vote
Down

Ubuntu is one of many Linux distributions with support for LVM, the Linux Logical Volume Manager. LVM is a disk partitioning scheme that brings a level of flexibility to disk management that is not possible with the traditional method. With LVM, you can, if necessary, increase the size of a partition online, that is, while the system is running, without unmounting the partition. You can also add another disk to the system if the old one becomes full. There are many more benefits that LVM offers, but the those two are more than enough reasons to consider using it.

This tutorial presents a step by step guide on how to install Ubuntu 11.04, the latest stable release, on an encrypted LVM file system. Why is it necessary to encrypt the disk? For the reasons detailed here, disk encryption protects your data from unauthorized physical access. read more...
