Android Question

Missing symbols building Android on Ubuntu

I followed the instructions on source.android.com to build the Android framework, but when I run the

make
command I get many errors. I'm running a virtualized 32-bit Ubuntu 11.04 on vmware under a 64-bit Windows Vista.

cat /proc/version


says

Linux version 2.6.38-8-generic (buildd@vernadsky) (gcc version 4.5.2 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.5.2-8ubuntu3) ) #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011


I have synchronized everything by using:

repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest
repo sync


and I chose the full-engineering target by using:

lunch full-eng


This is a partial list of the errors I get:

Answer

Below is what removed these errors in my case. An offending extraneous '/' at the end.

bad:

export PATH=/home/rev/BIN/jdk-6u34/jdk1.6.0_34/bin/:$PATH

Good:

export PATH=/home/rev/BIN/jdk-6u34/jdk1.6.0_34/bin:$PATH
