Before install Waydroid, make sure that your kernel supports binder and ashmem module (currently only linux-zen does)

Keep in mind that Waydroid only works with Wayland compositors. It also does not work yet with proprietary NVIDIA driver.

After install waydroid and waydroid-image, run this command to initialize the container:

# waydroid init

Then the container can be started via waydroid-container.service. The official project group/channel can be found on:

The comment on page 5 about binderfs should probably be pinned too. It's also linked to externally, but doesn't work as a link because it keeps moving pages back.

Edit: My bad, it's just that the Waydroid scripts try to modprobe binder_linux to detect if it's "loaded" rather than simply checking if the binder-control node exists already. My current kernel only offers the user facing options to either not build binder support, or compile it in, not as a module.

python-gbinder 1.1.2 should now support building using cython3.

Does anyone have a "fix" for the python-gbinder dependency to work with the latest cython installed? Currently, python-gbinder has a hard dependency on cpython0, and cython0 conflicts with cython.

Edit: Answering myself, build it via makechrootpkg.

please add binder_linux-dkms as (optional?) dependency since it's required to download the OTA when you start waydroid for the first time.

@yuhldr, installing linux-headers didn't work?

Aftermath commented on 2023-05-08 15:22 (UTC)

Could anyone use waydroid with linux-cachyos kernel?

yuhldr commented on 2023-05-04 04:04 (UTC)

linux-headers or linux-lts-headers maybe necessary

I tried symlinking /dev/binder to /dev/binderfs/anbox-binder, but it gives an error:

[gbinder] ERROR: Can't open /dev/binder: Permission denied
[23:04:15] Failed to add presence handler: None

I even tried editing /usr/lib/waydroid/tools/helpers/, but still no luck
