So I'm not an expert in Android or in OSes in general although I can make my way around a Linux environment, just to add as a pretext.
I recently installed Android 9 x86 on a Linx 1010b tablet (Intel processor), and I have had many problems launching certain apps that just crash quickly after launching. I have installed and re-installed Android 7 and 8 x86 multiple times and it doesn't matter which version I use, I just have trouble using some apps. I also tend to have a problem installing apps (after about 8 apps installed, play store gets stuck on 'downloading', 'installing', or '95.99 %').
So I did some reading and found it may be to do with something to do with ARM (still not entirely sure what it is), so I decided to enable it, but when I enable the native bridge on my tablet, I get a download manager process, but shortly after stops, and the enabled button switches back to grey 'disabled'. I further found that libhoudini tends to be used for this native bridge, and I searched and couldn't find one for Android 9, and maybe this is why I am unable to enable it. Running
/system/bin/enable_nativebridge as a super user in the terminal emulator was also ineffective and resulted in the error 'no such file or directory'.
Does anybody have any advice on what I should do? Is this really the source of my problem — not having a native bridge? Is it impossible to run Android with an Intel processor? Is there an alternative to libhoudini? Are there any versions of Android I can use and guaranteed to work — I basically need a few apps and that's it — Microsoft Office, Adobe, Kindle, Udemy, Coursera, and YouTube.
