Generally in Linux we install applications from source with

make install

I am supposed to run these steps in Android to install few source tars. How can I get required libraries for this installation.

Thank you.

    If some software manual told you to run those commands on an Android device, it's wrong. Android is based on the Linux kernel but is unlike a GNU/Linux system apart from that, so you can't just run software written for a GNU/Linux system on Android. We might be able to offer some advice if you can tell us more about the situation and what software you're trying to use. – Dan Hulme Feb 6 '14 at 14:25

  • I don't think the vanilla Python source tree will build for Android, but there are several projects with Python ports for Android. Googling {python android} will get you some useful suggestions. – Dan Hulme Feb 6 '14 at 16:24
