Android running as a windowed application

hello. I am a 2nd year student at a Computer Science University. I am
interested in the android based application from the multimedia and
user experience projects beagle board sustains for the gsoc 2010. The
technical skills upon Java and C, I am enriched with could meet the
project's needs.
I would like to get in touch with a mentor in order to deepen my
knowledge upon the subject.

Hello,
We're very open to a wide range of Android projects and I'd be happy
to brainstorm with you (IRC katier). To get this list to brainstorm
further, perhaps you can highlight if you're interested in ARM or DSP
side multimedia (also what kind of multimedia, in my mind integrating
open source ARM codecs may be interesting, perhaps on the camera input/
vision side), or give some ideas on what you mean by user experience
(is it adding more features or optimizing GUI, etc)? Also, perhaps
list our your current experience with Android or BeagleBoard so we can
provide more ideas.
Regards,
Katie

1) What does this have to do with the proposed GSOC project of "running
Android as a windowed application"? Check your mailer, I am sure it has a
"Compose new message" button - most even offer to write a suitable subject
line.

2) see http://www.beagleboard.org and http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardBeginners
and try to follow the beginners guides first. Once you are sure you understand
how to boot and run SW on the BB, try such daunting tasks as "porting" android

hai,
I tried procedure mentioned in http://code.google.com/p/rowboat/wiki/ConfigureAndBuild
.
Then i got terminal window shown in below.In that procedure i didn’t use saveenv command In my previous attempt i use it,the result was same.I got message resetting ,i wait for almost 2 hour but there is nochange in terminal.

If it doesn't happen in a few seconds (under 10) it's not happening.
Might save you some time ... 2 hours, boy *chuckle*

Well you need to use 'boot', not 'reset'.

Also note that 'porting android' doesn't mean 'getting a finished
product running', which is what you appear to be attempting. It's the
process of trying to create that 'finished product'. I believe
android is currently far from the 'finished product' stage as far as
beagleboard goes.

You may be better off trying an angstrom demo image if you just want
to get something going, as they are working already. Otherwise - do a
lot of reading and searching and tinkering on your own time. Basic
questions like these are easily answered by the internets, assuming
you have the skills required to even think about doing more.

And the only way to acquire those skills in the first place is to
tinker in your own time. Together with reading documentation, this is
the only way to obtain a deeper knowledge. You wont get it by asking
questions on mailing lists that make it obvious you haven't even
bothered to invest enough of your own time to ask relevant questions.

This is not about 'netiquette', this is basic professional courtesy.
Hijacking an existing 'thread' is about 'netiquette' mind you.
