Android Market crashes after tyring to update removed app.

I installed an app on my phone, and after a while the Market App found
an update. I didn't update the app yet, but i removed the application.
No the Market App still wants to update the app, and when it tries to
do so it crashes. I tried reinstalling the app, but then the Market
also crashes (all other installs are fine). If i update an other
application manually it works fine. One more problem is that the auto
function (that generates the list for apps-to-update) places the
removed app at the top, and crashes immediately. So the total list of
keeps growing and growing, unless i manually browse through all market
apps and update all manually.

How can i remove the failing app from the to-update list?

If this is the incorrect group for such a question, can you please
direct me to a correcter group for such type of questions...

Try: Home -> Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> Market.

Then a) Clear Cache and try again. If still borked,
then b) Clear Data and try again. If still borked,
then c) Uninstall updates and try again. If still borked ... you're probably
SOL. Factory Reset?

1. Problem with viewflipper animations and drawing cache


I have a viewflipper which I use to animate between views. The in/out-
animations are TranlateAnimations.

During the animations, the views that are animated are covered by a
darker transparent foreground. How can I get rid of this?

Further, if the view thats being animated contains layout child with a
background image set, the image looks really bad during the animation.

I have tried calling the following methods on both the viewflipper and
it's child views, without success

Any hints would be appreciated.
btw: I had a similar problem when scrolling listviews but solved it
setting scrollingCache to false

I also have the same problem when animating with a TextSwitcher.
Strange thing is that the ApiDemos does not have this problem and I am
basically using that same code. Are these optimizations set on a
global level? Also, other examples using e.g. a ViewFlipper such as
does not have this problem. What am I missing?



2. layout-land with onConfigurationChanged

I'm new to this group and I've got one thing that's been bugging me.

In my application, I want to override the default reorientation from
androids for two reasons:

1) my main view is animated and the redraw routine checks for changes
in the screen height

2) It is faster to not reload everything again

3) My application allows users to decide what positions they would
like things in, and I would like the positions to be proportional to
the last position before the orientation switch, not in the default
position  I know, onSaveInstanceState, but again it is faster to just
let the refresh routine handle the changes.

Anyway, I have a bunch of custom menus that reside in both the layout
and layout-land folders.  I would like the program to take the proper
menu based on that, but it doesn't.  So I'm looking for the method
that is called somewhere between onCreate and onResume that tells the
program which xml documents to use.  I don't really want to have to
change the views programmatically, because that would create some
extra overhead.  I also do not want to work around by creating two
versions in the ./../layout folder--though this is the option I'm
looking at right now.

Any help is greatly appreciated!  and I've already searched through a
lot of the Android Docs for this to no avail.
