SDK-1.5 Emulator does not find skin

Screens beeing always too small :) I am trying to use a skin without any
I got it here : 

I am copying the BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P folder inside
D:\android\tools\lib\images\skins (please note my system is on D:\...)

When running the emulator, I get such message :
[2009-04-29 13:30:30 - Emulator] emulator: ERROR: could not find directory
for skin 'BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P', please use a different name

I tried using the -skindir option and provided the full path :
-skindir "d:\Android\Tools\lib\images\skins" -skin "BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P"
...with no success.

If I use -skin HVGA, then it works....

I have tried on 2 different machines and I get the same result.
I also tried renaming BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P into NOKBD (short name) with no
more success.
I have btw first tried -skin BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P (no ") with no success.

Anyone would have a hint ?

this is not going to work for SDK 1.5
try copying your skin folder to SDK_HOME\platforms\android-1.5\skins,
SDK_HOME\platforms\android-1.1\skins, depending upon your AVD target.

1. Odd size Dell Aero screen: 360x640 px

Dell's first US released smart phone was released today. It has this
odd sized screen of 360x640px. I really wonder what that's going to
look like with the average app?

On the plus side, it's light and inexpensive ($300 without contract).

On the negative side it's on AT&T, has a miniscule battery (1000 mAh),
slow processor (624 MHz) and runs Cupcake (1.5) of all things.

Maybe Dell can do better next time.

2. Native crash (SIGSEGV) in open gl texture load

Hi all,

I have posted previously on a related topic, but thought a new post
with clearer descriptions may trigger someone out there with some

I am getting regular crashes in native (android) code when I am
loading textures in opengl.  Trace is:

The failure always looks the same, but doesn't always happen at the
same time.

I am loading a GLSurfaceView in a fairly standard activity, however
after several attempts I am now at the stage where in order to have an
interim loading screen rendered over the top of the GLSurfaceView (for
which I am using a ViewFlipper to flip to a standard Canvas-based
view) I am needing to completely dissolve the GLSurfaceView every time
a new "level" in the app (game) is loaded.  (This is because I am not
confident that simply flipping out the old view is causing the GL
Context to be destroyed on all devices)

When I try to create a new GLSurfaceView instance in the same
activity, then load the textures, I get the above failure.  As I said
however, it doesn't always occur in the same place.  That is,
occasionally I will be able to play through several levels (GL setup &
tear down events) without a problem, then at some point the failure
will occur.  It consistently fails, just not always immediately.

When I tear down the GLSurfaceView (via a call to removeView on the
ViewFlipper) I have verified that the surface is destroyed (hence
previously loaded textures should be removed from vram) but no matter
what sort of re-arranging of code I have tried I can't seem to avoid
this failure.

Happens on both the emulator, and device.

No JNI warnings, and no GL failures reported when
DEBUG_CHECK_GL_ERROR is enabled on the gl view.

I really need some guidance on this.  Does anyone have any clue as to
how I can resolve, or even diagnose this?



3. Using HttpClient

5. Maybe you can use this

6. get files under certain directory

7. when to use runonuithread()? why we need to use it?
