Today I have tried adding my PayPal account to my iTunes (installed with Wine) Account but discovered, that adding my PayPal account as a payment method didn’t work. After inspecting the network traffic, I found that my browser (Firefox) was redirected to an itmss:// URL, but Firefox didn’t know how to handle that and did nothing.

Cross-compiling native Linux applications for Android

Here’s how you can cross-compile “normal” Linux applications for Android! Note, that I cannot give you any help in following this. It worked(tm) when I wrote this but don’t know about now. For the android_configure script download this script, place it in your ~/bin folder and (if not already) add ~/bin to your PATH variable. To create a standalone toolchain use something like the following command (run from your NDK root-dir): Ncurses Add ac_cv_header_locale_h=no to your android_configure script to the line export CC (example: export CC=${CROSS_PATH}/${CROSS_COMPILE}-gcc ac_cv_header_locale_h=no) android_configure --enable-widec make make install
