Running the Emulator on Early Look 1.5 SDK

 Hello,

Noticed the emulator now needs a -avd parameter to run.  I had a look at 
the Early 1.5 docs but there's no mention of the -avd startup option as 
yet. All you need to do is create a virtual device.

cd to the tools directory.  on my linux box this was:  
android-sdk-linux_x86-1.5_pre/tools

For version 1.1 use something like

./android create avd --target 1 --name NormalVM01

For version 1.5 ( Cupcake ) use

./android create avd --target 2 --name CupcakeVM01

the naming can be anything you like.  Then run the emulator with ( on 
linux atleast ):

./emulator -avd CupcakeVM01


Hope this helps some  :-)

You can also just write:

 ./emulator @CupcakeVM01

This is the syntax used in the document that Xavier pointed out.
