Let's get to business right away. We will be installing an android fork from https://www.android-x86.org/
Download either of 32bit or 64bit .rpm package of android-x86 from https://www.android-x86.org/download.html
Note : Step 2 is not applicable for (Fedora/Red Hat/CentOS/SUSE) users since rpm package can be installed in those by default. Skip on to Step 3
Install alien package for your linux distro. 'Alien' is a computer program that converts different Linux package distribution file formats. It supports conversion between Linux Standard Base, RPM, deb, Stampede (.slp) and Slackware (tgz) packages.
- Ubuntu/ LinuxMint/ Debian users can do
sudo apt install alien
- Arch user can install from AUR - https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/alien_package_converter/
Note :The installation may take around 3-5 minutes depending upon the read/ write speeds.
For (Fedora/Red Hat/CentOS/SUSE) users, as you all know run:
sudo rpm -ivh android-x86-version.rpm
For (Ubuntu/Debian/Linux mint) users, run:
sudo alien -ci android-x86-version.rpm
Volá! 🤩 Now you are ready with android x86 desktop O.S.
Reboot and you will see a boot entry with Android x86 tag. If it doesn't show up, just change the grub timeout using Grub Customizer or manually press Esc while booting up to show boot entries.
- Do remember to enable Native Bridge from android settings to enjoy android desktop to the prime.
- You could launch the installed Android-x86 in a QEMU virtual machine if needed.
- To uninstall the O.S files and boot entry. Use the usual package uninstalling method of you distribution.
Enjoy your day 💖.
