 While I can't tell when the Cupcake SDK will be publicly available, I'm very
surprised by
your statement that "debugging and make are very slow on ubuntu".

What is exactly your setup, and what kind of slowness do you experience ?

 I have core 2 duo processor at 2.8GHz and 2GB RAM. Ubuntu is running
in VM Player under windows XP. In ubuntu DDMS is needed to be run
manually and attached for debugging. This attach takes time. Step and
step into using F5 and F6 keys takes longer.
In windows SDK debugging is integrated in ADT plugin and no need to
start DDMS manually. Step and step into are very quick to respond.
Build is also very quick in windows SDK.

However I am not sure whether the sluggishness is due to running
ubuntu inside VM player.

Why is that ? The Eclipse plugin should work just fine under Ubuntu.

It certainly is. And what amount of RAM/disk space did you allocate to your
virtual machine.
A reasonable explanation might be that there isn't enough RAM for the VM to
run everything

 Hi David

I also have a similar problem and using a pure ubuntu laptop (no vmplayer),
but attaching via DDMS taking much time (.. i mean "...the launching
activity step), is there any tweak for this? btw am working on cupcake

 Hi David,

I have installed the ADT plugin in eclipse europa on ubuntu. I am
working on open source version cupcake. Eclipse is now asking to
configure the android.jar file path. But, I couldn't find this file in
compiled version cupcake. Please provide the path details and
instructions if any required to build android.jar using cupcake source

 This question is forwarded to Android-Platform discussion forum as the
question is more relevant to that forum.

1. ListActivity addHeader???


I can add a header to my listview within another activity with:

list = (ListView) findViewById(R.layout.list_view);

View v = View.inflate(this, R.layout.skill_list_header, null);
        TextView t = (TextView) v.findViewById(R.id.skillHeader);

this doesnt work however for ListActivity.  Can anyoneadd some insight
to this?  Sorry if this is obvious.


2. OOM loading images in Gallery


We're  working on a application that loads photos using the gallery.
Most of the images in full size will be in the ~200 K range.

We've been profiling the application for memory usage and have made
several optimizations to try and make sure the application is not
holding unnecessary references.

However, the application continues to run out of memory when viewing
images via the Gallery widget.  It appears as if the Gallery does not
free the View objects after they're no longer in the viewable screen.

I'm wondering if this is a known problem and if there are any
suggestions to either work around it or other solutions.  Looking
through the source it looks like there's a RecycleBin object that
should be collecting references but heap dumps show references the
View objects.

Any help is appreciated.
