(Solw) - Anbox in Manjaro xfce 17.1.12

I have installed anbox but not proper way...
now there is a issue is..

anbox session-manager
[ 2018-08-30 07:33:26] [session_manager.cpp:130@operator()] Failed to start as either binder or ashmem kernel drivers are not loaded

binder or ashmem kernel drivers are not loaded.
Now what is the way to run anbox in Manjaro xfce 17.1.12


it is automatically close after few second...

sudo mhwd-kernel -li
Currently running: 4.14.66-1-MANJARO (linux414)
The following kernels are installed in your system:
   * linux414

So how did you install it?

And did you reboot after installing?

Did you install anbox-modules-dkms-git from the AUR? The AUR page can be found here.

He use " yay" Package manager but this command is not run in Manjaro xfce. I tray "sudo" and "pacman" but not work, then i follow :

$ sudo pacman -Sy snapd (For snapd installation)


$ snap install --devmode --beta anbox (For install anbox)

After restart anbox is in my sysem but now kernel issue...

Which kernel is supporting the anbox in manjaro...?

Why don't you install yay as an AUR helper and follow the directions of the linked tutorial?
sudo pacman -S yay

Why is that a kernel issue?

[jaimin@jaimin-pc ~]$ anbox check-features
The CPU of your computer (              Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.93GHz) does not support all
features Anbox requires.
It is missing support for the following features: SSE 4.1, SSE 4.2, SSSE 3
You can for example find more information about SSE
here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streaming_SIMD_Extensions

So.. Pentium(R) 4 CPU is not support anbox.. I need to upgrade it for anbox..

Have you tried:

anbox launch

The outcome of the command (anbox check-features) says that your CPU is missing some features of the package. I don't know how crucial these features are for your purpose of using the package. Take a look at the comments section of the AUR page of anbox-git, there is a user with a similar issue.

There is an open issue on Anbox's GitHub page here that can help you determine if your CPU is capable of running the application.

I have tray that but no movement..

According to the GitHub issue I linked above

you miss support for SSE 4.1/4.2 and SSSE 3 which are mandatory for Android (see https://developer.android.com/ndk/guides/abis)

This seems to be a crucial issue for running the application.
The code for checking the feature support of Anbox is here.

I would suggest contacting the developer to double check this.


Pantium 4 is Not support for SSE 4.1/4.2 and SSE 3 which are mandatory for Android. Older CPUs not supporting all features Android needs

Edit : Core 2 duo processor (LGA 775) support the anbox
