So I got down to thinking, about how Android and Ubuntu operate on a similar kernel. I also am aware that it is possible to run two desktop environments on the same kernel (possibly using a chroot environment?) My question is: Could it be (theoretically) possible to run Android(x86) on the same Linux as Ubuntu, forcing Android to use Ubuntu's libraries instead of its own? Yeah I know about emulators and whatnot, but actually switch between X server and Android display?submitted by OrShUnderscore

Hey /r/linux ,
I need help with starting from scratch. By scratch, I really mean from scratch.
I'm going to high school in september and I think that my current knowledge of computers is absolutely horrible ( 3 years of IT a really shitty IT class with a bad teacher ). While I do understand some basics, I feel that almost everything I was taught isn't correct. I need a few good books to explain computers to me, from turning it on to hard stuff like advanced linux stuff.
Help is appreciated!submitted by dinbored
