@ChrisP & mattrix, re: multicore use of VMware VS VirtualBox
We're talking about different things here.
You guys are talking about the number of physical cores the emulation can use.
I was talking about the number of virtual cores that can be emulated.
Both contribute to the overall speed, but VirtualBox doesn't implement multiple virtual cores.
VirtualBox does have an extremely limited implementation of multiple virtual CPUs, but no multiple virtual cores.
(At least I can't find any mention of such in any of the configuration menus. But I'm using v4.3.12, so perhaps it's been added in later updates.)
VMware has both.
I've had a quick look at your github site, but I'd like some more details on what the 'Android tweaks' include.
I assume that it's a matter of improvements beyond what we got in the download zrox linked for us.
But it would be nice to have some clue as to what those improvements are.
Another thing of importance is that if any improvements affect the build process (like modified 'makefiles' or build configs), then it may be necessary to clean out all old compiled binaries before a new full 'make', both to ensure compatibility between all system components and to ensure that all components benefit from those improvements.
So what I'm getting at is that we need a really good description for each uploaded section of the github site, so people know what they're getting.
Note that this is not intended as criticism, but just some advice for the future.
@mattrix, re: compiling from git repo
Perhaps you missed it, but ChrisP already said that he has so far failed to set up a full source repo (as normally used for complete projects), and that he temporarily settled for the current repo, which just holds selected improved sections of the sources.
As for your own repo, I just found out that it exists, so I haven't had time to check it out yet.
But I plan to do so today, and will probably get back on that topic later on.
