setting up the android SDK on fedora
 
i mentioned this before, but i plan on documenting how to get the
android SDK up and running on fedora, and i've started documenting the
process here:

http://www.crashcourse.ca/wiki/index.php/Android_on_64-bit_Fedora_12

so far, only the first two links are reasonably fleshed out, so if
one wants to follow along just to run the emulator, feel free, and
email me anything you think needs to be added to that page. i've
already been given some advice on how to install additional sound
packages to get around the sound issue.

so, for now, the emulator page is fairly skeletal and you can email
me any other cool things that would be useful there as i work on the
later topics.

Android wants the 1.5 JDK; it's incompatible with Java 1.6.

That gets to be a really annoying problem, because there is lots of
software that wants to suck Java 1.6 in as a dependency.

I haven't actually tried it, but it ought to be possible to install
both Java 1.5 and Java 1.6, then set up some environment variables so
that Android only sees 1.5 while everything else sees 1.6.

Android is also incompatible with every version of gcj, the GNU Java compiler.

Best,

Don Quixote

openjdk 1.6.

The Android.com website says somewhere that JDK 1.6 is incompatible
with some construction used by Android's Java. I think it may be a
Google-specific extension to the Java language.

On my own box, I find that despite my best efforts, I am unable to
prevent 1.6 from getting installed. All I have to do is sneeze, and
then Yum wants to install the 1.6 JDK because it is a dependency of
the tissue with which I wipe my nose.

So what I'm going to have to do, is have both the 1.5 and 1.6 JDKs
installed, but hide the 1.6 from all the Android tools.
