I have the following requirement: Based on the platform (Linux,
Android, Windows) on which the software is executing, I have to set
some parameters that affect behavior. I was looking at some pre-
populated ones like which differentiates Windows/Linux.
However, on the Android emulator is Linux as well. My
question: Does Android populate any properties (that identifies the
execution env as Android emulator) by default that I can query and

1. Android emulator -dns-server usage

Hello everyone,

I am currently somewhat struggling to get the Android emulator to use
a custom DNS server, which is running on localhost (

As of now, I have tried various approaches trying to convince the
emulator to use my DNS server, so far without success. In the end, it
always boils down to the following error message:

### WARNING: can't resolve DNS server name 'localhost'
### WARNING: will use system default DNS server

localhost, however, resolves correctly when supplied to nslookup:

| $ nslookup localhost
| Server:
| Address:
| Non-authoritative answer:
| Name:
| Address:

Using the IP address instead of the hostname also does not help much,
it just changes the error message to:

### WARNING: can't resolve DNS server name ''
### WARNING: will use system default DNS server

The extra command line I am using to start the emulator reads: -http-
proxy -dns-server -debug-proxy -

This is happening with Android emulator version 5.0 (build_id
ECLAIR-24846) running on Windows.

Any hint how to get this working is much appreciated!
