I’m looking around a bit at what apps are available for SFOS and it seems there are a few cases where apps for other mobile linux distros seem more complete. For example Whisperfish has severely limiting known issues that Axolotl doesn’t appear to have. And for example “Bitwarden Manager (alpha)” is basically unsuitable for use, while Warden seems quite alright.
Is it possible to run mobile linux apps from other distros on SFOS? I would expect yes since AFAIK they are basically just Gnome/KDE apps that use Wayland which… if SFOS is just a linux distro, I can’t see why it wouldn’t work?
Looking around, I can find some libraries that have been compiled for SFOS, but so far the only GUI app that I’ve been able to find that people seem to have built on SFOS is Waydroid. I also can’t really find instructions how to compile random software for SFOS.
There seems to be some RPM infrastructure for building SFOS software, but if it’s just a matter of copying metadata from upstream RPM packages, I’m not sure why I don’t find more apps from other platforms. Is there a catch?
