    Hi,

    To compile android source, I understand we need a cross compiler which is downloaded with android source tree. But I do understand why we need a gcc on linux machine? Isn't the cross compiler used to compile the code for ARM? what part of code actually is not compiled with the cross compiler?

    Thanks,

    Welcome to our AndroidForums, @gossiper--I've moved your thread over here to our application development area which is probably a better area for you.

    Cheers!
