I bought this app while I had a Note 3 but now have a Note 4. Play says it is incompatible with device (trltetmo). Please fix this. I had to sideload the APK. It also does work fine on Lollipop (5.1.1 SlimRemix ROM). There is an issue with this app and PIE, can be fixed by getting a patched PIE binary (/system/bin/linker). There is an XDA thread about this. Zshaolin works fine when this is replaced.
Fantastic! I can use my android phone as a real computer, connecting to remote systems to read mail, check logs, and so on. Sysadmining has never been so portable! ;)
I contacted the creators of this application with a few questions and never got a response. I decided to bite the bullet and buy it any way. Turns out it does not do what I need. This does not allow me to run the command bc [command line calculator] so it is useless.
Got emacs info working I had to fiddle a bit to get emacs working the way I wanted, but it started out of the box. To get info working in emacs I needed a newer busybox than the one that comes with zshaolin: grip needs to accept option -q. I run Cyanogenmod so I prepended /system/xbin to my PATH, but then man stopped working, so I prepended zshaolins busybox sbin to my new PATH. That's all.
This actually works I tried a couple Linux installers before trying this. Those installers didn't seem to work. But this app gives me what I most miss about--well actually--FreeBSD, including (gasp) my preferred shell. Now if I could get TECO.....
useful, but not extendible i like that this is small and yet contains effective unixland tools, but also i wish it had a native compiler so i can add things ... guess I will play with debian noroot after all...
