Repo Client init problem ubuntu 8.10

 I am trying to download the android source onto a new ubuntu 8.10
installation on a x86 machine. All the steps worked fine until I tried
to init the repo client. I get the following...

ja...@james-desktop:~/mydroid$ repo init -u 
git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/james/bin/repo", line 590, in <module>
    main(sys.argv[1:])
  File "/home/james/bin/repo", line 557, in main
    _Init(args)
  File "/home/james/bin/repo", line 176, in _Init
    _CheckGitVersion()
  File "/home/james/bin/repo", line 205, in _CheckGitVersion
    proc = subprocess.Popen(cmd, stdout=subprocess.PIPE)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 594, in __init__
    errread, errwrite)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 1153, in
_execute_child
    raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I can't find anyone else having such an repo error. I did find an
obscure message that said the python error might be due to a missing
readline module. I tried to install lib32readline5-dev as in the
download instructions and got the following error

ja...@james-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install lib32readline5-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package lib32readline5-dev

Any ideas anybody? I am somewhat new to linux but have had a fair
amount of unix experience in the past.

 This would be a good question to the repo-discuss mailing list, or
android-platform, so that android-developers can stay focused on
helping people who are developing applications with the SDK.

Do you have git installed?

 Yes, GIT is installed. I belive that it is not repo it self but that
lib32readline5-dev is related to the problem. As far as I understand
it is needed if you run on a AMD 64 bit arch but I'm running
Virtualbox + Ubuntu on my Intel Centrino Duo laptop so I'm a bit
confused. When looking in /proc/cpuinfo it states:
- model: 15
- model name: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU t5...@1.83ghz
- stepping: 2
- cpuid level: 2
- clflush size: 64

When running $sudo apt-get install lib32readline5-dev it say there is
no such package, but  http://packages.ubuntu.com  states differently.
Any idea on how to fix this?

 orry, I missed flags.
- flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr mce cx8 apic mtrr pge mca cmov pat
pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 constant_tsc up pni monitor

And since it doesn't contain lm (long mode) I'm back to square 1.

 roblem solved...

It seems that the download of repo ($curl http://android.git.kernel.org/repo

Try the command until curl succeeds (verify by $less ~/bin/repo).

 Try

sudo apt-get install libreadline5-dev

instead of lib32readline5-dev

 I had same problem on ubuntu 8.04 as virtualbox guest os. In my case,
curl has no problem, but it just was resolved after successful
installation of librealine5-dev as Bismark advised. Thanks Bismark.

 I have the same problem. I tried curl and verified indeed the whole
python script was downloaded. I installed libreadline5-dev instead of
lib32readline5.dev because my computer could not find the latter. I
cannot initilize repo. Can someone help?

 Sounds like you don't have git installed on your system.

 repo should check for git.
Try applying this patch.

1. Directories and Files on External Storage are invisible

Hi Everyone,

I have created a directory and even a file in that directory on the
external storage, I am able to read and write into that but the
problem is they are not visible on the emulator i.e, in the phone.
What might be the reason.

2. Proper way to use Non-Extended Classes?

I have an app I am working on and being new to Android Dev I am
running into a situation

I have a Scores class not extended from anything (Activity,Service,
etc) but in the same package that needs to access SharedPreferences

public class Scores {

Context ctcx;

public Scores(Context context) {
      ctcx = context;
}

public void resetScores(){

     SharedPreferences pref =
getSharedPreferences("MyPref",ctcx.MODE_PRIVATE);

}

}

Always results in constructor not defined? All the imports are there
and Eclipse doesnt flag until it tries to run on emulator. Does
everything have to extend something in android?

Thx for any guidance
Eric
