Finger swipe in Android API level 3 (OS 1.5) ?

 hanks much.  I had found something similar elsewhere in my searching, and as 
you ended up making a subclass of SimpleOnGestureListener. As it happens, I
made that class inside of my primary Activity class, so I didn't have to pass
the object into the instantiator like you did, but the same "have to work back
into the main object" effectively applies, and I see your point.

If I get to a point where I'm willing to ignore the 1.5 OS revision, I'll see
what else can be done with the new gestures support added in API level 4...

1. Dalvik VM init failed (check log file)

Hi All,

I'm trying to port dalvik VM onto PPC.
I could able to build 'dalvikvm' binary and the respective 'jar' files
that are needed for the execution of 'dalvikvm'('core.jar' ,
'ext.jar','framework.jar',android.policy.jar' and 'services.jar')

To test dalvikvm i followed the following steps:-

 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/cupcake/out/debug/target/product/eee_701/
 export ANDROID_ROOT=/home/cupcake/out/debug/target/product/eee_701/
 export BOOTCLASSPATH=/home/cupcake/out/debug/target/product/eee_701/
 export ANDROID_DATA=/tmp/dalvik_$USER
 mkdir -p $ANDROID_DATA/dalvik-cache
 public class Foo {
 public static void main(String[] args) {
 System.out.println("Hello, world");

 $dx --dex --output=foo.jar Foo.class
 $./dalvikvm -cp foo.jar Foo

For the first execution of 'dalvikvm' I got segmentation fault.
On debugging in gdb I found where it was crashing.
To fix it I made modification in the following file
Line No :186

ORIGINAL->  MTERP_OFFSET(offArrayObject_contents,   ArrayObject,
contents, 12)
MODIFIED->  MTERP_OFFSET(offArrayObject_contents,   ArrayObject,
contents, 16)

'contents' member in ArrayObject structure is a 64-bit entity and
there are three 32-bit entities above it.
For satisfying 64-bit alignment 'contents' member should start at 16
byte offset rather than 12 byte.

After making the above change, I followed the same steps to execute
but this time i didnt get the seg fault but one message came up saying
"Dalvik VM init failed (check log file)".

On debugging in gdb I found the error line to be at
system/core/libcutils/ashmem-dev.c:60    ret = ioctl(fd,
; -- with errno set to -ENOTTY.

I really need help on this to go ahead

Thanks in advance
