 Hello All!

I downloaded android and followed the instructions provided in this
website (  http://source.android.com/download  )! but i am unable to
launch the android emulator.  please find the following error

laptop:~/bin/out/host/linux-x86/bin# ./emulator
emulator: ERROR: You did not specify a virtual device name, and the
system
directory could not be found.

If you are an Android SDK user, please use '@<name>' or '-avd <name>'
to start a given virtual device (see -help-avd for details).

Otherwise, follow the instructions in -help-disk-images to start the
emulator


Am i looking at the right executable? can any one please help me
figure this out.

Thanks a lot.
Naga suman.

 Hi,

You didn't load the SDK but source.
If you want develop application, prefer going at
developers.android.com

 Hello,

Please make sure that you have created an AVD image for you build.
Check the following web page for doing this

 http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/avd.html 

First list the existing targets with

Available Android targets:
[1] Android 1.5
     API level: 3
     Skins: HVGA (default), HVGA-L, HVGA-P, QVGA-L, QVGA-P

As you can see I have only one target available. The use the commmand

Android 1.5 is a basic Android platform.
Do you wish to create a custom hardware profile [no]no
Created AVD 'test' based on Android 1.5

After the creation of the AVD image you should be able to start your
emulator with


Of course another way is to use the Eclipse framework in which you
also can create your AVD image and start the emulator.

 Well, you need to create an AVD, look at the content of -help-disk-images
and -help-avd and you'll understand what that means.
Or you could even read the documentation on developer.android.com about
this:
 http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/avd.html

Other Threads

1. Using orientation sensor to g et 360掳 orientation?

I wonder why you don't look into the documentation where everything is
explained?
http://developer.android.com/reference/android/hardware/SensorEvent.html#values

The first value means you point your phone 60 away from the north
pole.

PS: If you don't need compass orientation, it may be better/easier for
you to only use the accelerometer for determining the "arrow that
points to the floor".

2. About the oneway keyword in AIDL

Hello,
I found in Android source code an interesting but undocumented keyword
for aidl: "oneway" (before void in a function).
As it sounds, the generated code uses the corresponding flag
http://developer.android.com/reference/android/os/IBinder.html#FLAG_ONEWAY
when performing the remote transaction.
To my understanding it can be used to fire remote listeners without
having to wait for each listener to return.
Since it's not documented, I wonder whether it should be considered as
a "private API stuff that can break in a future SDK release" or not.
Anyway, I can't alter the generated code so I'm planning to use it in
the aidl file, I hope this is just a documentation lack :)
