Can I run an eggdrop off my rooted android phone?

Post by R-WaT »

After rooting my android I wondered if I could run an eggdrop through it. There is a terminal emulator app I use to shoot commands through it.

Would this be possible? Lets be the first...

Your first step would be to get Tcl to compile on it, if you can manage that, you could probably get Eggdrop to run as well.

Almighty alrighty then..

I know this thread is ~six months old, but I Google'd my way to it, and are really up for this challenge. "IDK why you would", someone wrote. Well. Smartphones don't require much power, so if one has a good Internet connection at home, and wish to run an eggdrop 24/7, yet not have a server machine eating >50w constantly, then perhaps a "smartphone server" -- located with a fixed charge cable in the closet -- would be a great idea. So, any update on this? Has anyone actually managed to pull it through? Would be awesome to hear from you.

Forget about installing tcl on your phone. I did google that and some devs said that it would be difficult. Nevermind, I found a better solution.

You can install debian or ubuntu linux directly on top of android.

Few related links. ... ight=linux ... n-android/

Look it up for your phone. For now it looks promising. Haven't tested it yet.

But if it works, would be great. A new eggdrop running on a very economy friendly server, with low electricity coasts. (messured 3,2 or 3,4 W while charing, with no load, not installed yet, but doub't linux and eggdrop will eat so much more)

Tested it and works very reliable for me. Only remaining problem (maybe no problem for you):

I hope I do not have to hack around and to create my own Cyanogenmod ROM built... ... vice-java/
eggdrop running on Android powered mobile phone - Yes, it is possible! - Very reliable.

Any news?

Updates on this matter? Would eg. a Samsung Galaxy Mini suffice for running AndroidUbuntu (with eggdrop) without too much dazzle?
