In the last chapter, we learnt how to boot the x86vbox device using PXE and NFS. We can boot the device to an embedded Linux environment, which is the first stage of the Android-x86 boot. In this stage, we can use a debug console to verify the status of the system so that we can make sure everything is right before we start the real Android system. In this chapter, we will talk about the first issue we meet during Android system boot up. This is about how to enable the Android graphics system for the x86vbox device. We will cover the following topics in this chapter:
- Overview of Android graphics architecture
- Delving into graphics HAL
- Analyzing the Android emulator graphics HAL for comparison
