Thanks for the responses.
I am using the Lemaker Lubuntu image:
Lubuntu For BananaPro v1412
I have successfully used VMs under both VirtualBox and VMware, with these VMs running 64-bit versions of Ubuntu 12.04, or Ubuntu 14.04.
What platform do you use to compile the Android load? I saw a refrance to a VM platform for compiling.
Note that some of the lib installs change depending on which operating system you use, and as far as I know only those two Ubuntu versions have been used successfully.
So I agree with liab that you're almost certainly wasting your time trying to do the work entirely on a BPi. Not only will a full system build be horribly slow to complete (takes hours even on a good PC), but the end result will probably include tons of errors due to insufficient/lacking libs.
It's obviously possible to use other Linux distros than Ubuntu too, but then the lib install and build instruction may need considerable changes.
I know I had to perform rather extensive experiments to find a working set of libs for Ubuntu 14.04 (before that only Ubuntu 12.04 could be used).
If you search the forums you'll find several different descriptions of how to build Android using Ubuntu, including complete step-by-step guides.
But you will have to modify the parts that describe the source repos to load, since those have changed since those guides were written.
The current repos are best described in a post by ChrisP in one of his most recent threads on this topic, which you can reach through this link.
