You probably can not. They are different hardware platforms. Your phone is probably arm based and your desktop is probably x86 based.


The word “Linux” has two meanings. The most common meaning, by far, is the Linux operating system, also known as GNU/Linux or GNU/X11/Apache/Linux/TeX/Perl/Python/FreeCiv, which is an imitation of the Unix operating system. The word “Linux” can also mean the Linux kernel, which is the kernel of the Linux operating system. Android is a completely different ...

Simply using a kernel that is also used as the basis of a "unix-like", "mostly POSIX compliant" operating system -- GNU/Linux -- is not sufficient to make Android such as well. There are, however, some *nix-ish elements, such as the shell, which is a "largely compatible" ...

I haven't looked in detail. The defconfig file was last editer 4 years ago; it's quite possible that some options have changed in the kernel source and nobody bothered to update this particular file. Try looking in the kernel logs to see if these options have disappeared. Compare with other msm*_defconfig, which have been updated more recently. The readme ...
