Chroot to desktop linux or use Android app linux deploy+juicessh+vnc viewer or xserver xsdl, you can even run Ubuntu 20.04on Android x86.
Linux deploy even supports ext4 partition. It will mount them at /data/local/mnt, chroot and run x server, ssh and vnc server.
When trying to chroot to linux from android x86 and trying to start an X server, surfaceflinger closes the x server, so stop surface flinger.

You can try openthos which supports linux apps . I have never tried it but it because it has kernel 4.19 which is incompatible with my hardware . It is android 8.0
I was find that openthos has linux container, but i cant test it for same reason, i have to learn how to compile kernel and mesa for testing it xD

First test on your old 2nd gen desktop before compiling kernel and mesa, you need AOSP source which is around 30GB in nougat and require 100gb or more hard disk space when unpacking, on newer android aosp source is 40GB+, compiling for hours bad for your laptops lifespan.

Well i said that many times, the desktop is not mine, i can access it only when we visit our elders.

If there is no a way to compile only the kernel and mesa, not the whole android system, as you said, I can't use my laptop for this.

I couldn't boot with their default kernel&mesa&initrd, I used a gearlock patched initrd of nougat and a custom mesa/kernel which I installed from recovery mode.
