Android :: Initializations Repo By $ Repo Init - U
Jun 6, 2009
I am using Virtual Box with KUbuntu Linux on x86(Windows XP) system and setting up system for Android Source SDK. I have installed repo through (curl http://android.git.kernel.org/repo >~/bin/repo). Now I am trying to initialize repo by $ repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git but here I am getting an error shown as follows:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/main.py", line 235, in <module> _Main(sys.argv[1:]) File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/main.py", line 217, in _Main repo._Run(argv) File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/main.py", line 123, in _Run cmd.Execute(copts, cargs) File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/subcmds/init.py", line 218, in Execute self._SyncManifest(opt) File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/subcmds/init.py", line 123, in _SyncManifest m.PreSync() File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/project.py", line 1440, in PreSync cb = self.CurrentBranch File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/project.py", line 271, in CurrentBranch b = self.work_git.GetHead() File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/project.py", line 1226, in GetHead fd = open(path, 'rb') IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/tirtha/ mydroid/.repo/manifests/.git/HEAD'
I have try to go to the mentioned folder and it looks like /home/ tirtha/mydroid/.repo/manifest.git/HEAD rather '/home/tirtha/ mydroid/.repo/manifests/.git/HEAD'. Can anybody suggest me the reason of the error and any solution for this.
I am trying to download the android source onto a new ubuntu 8.10 installation on a x86 machine. All the steps worked fine until I tried to init the repo client. I get the following. I can't find anyone else having such an repo error. I did find an obscure message that said the python error might be due to a missing readline module. I tried to install lib32readline5-dev as in the download instructions and got the following error Any ideas anybody? I am somewhat new to linux but have had a fair amount of unix experience in the past. Code...
When I wanted to get Android source code, I knew that I have to use "repo". So what is repo? Why do they use repo and not just use GIT?, and is there a GUI for repo that enables me to pause/resume syncing, because every time I get disconnected occasionally it seems that repo starts syncing from the beginning!
i did repo sync platform/packages/apps/Contacts.git and i received the specific src files for that project now that i modified what i wanted, i want to ubild my changes and patch them to my current Android OS. I tried running make from working directory, but there is no makefile. How would i go about doing so?
I was just wondering if I want to sync to the latest Eclair repo which one of the following would be the correct command? What is the difference between them? Currently I am using cupcake version and wanted to move up to eclair. Would I need to do any thing else as far as syncing and building the eclair branch? Currently I am using "Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)" and java version "1.6.0_16". Code...
I am trying to set up a private repository of Android source code while hosting the git trees on github as private repos. I have no problem changing the manifest.xml file to point to public git trees hosted on github in the same way that CynagonMod does, but when trying to point to private repos I get the following error when trying "repo sync":
Initializing project username/android_external_webkit ... fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly error: Cannot fetch username/android_external_webkit Where username/android_external_webkit is of course a private github repo of the same name. I understand the error occurs since I did not specify my user name and credentials to github, but I fail to see how to do it in the manifest.xml with repo.
When I'm in the ~/kelso/android/ system directory in the terminal and try to repo sync,it just keeps saying " update repo to latest version 1.8" then it downloads a files and stops. I try to repo sync again and same thing...
I've googled for hours with no results. Back when I had Ubuntu 10.04 this was never an issue.now that I'm running a clean installed version of 12.10,compiling CM isn't going so smooth...
I ran the command to sync with android-4.1.1_r1. Its literally been syncing for hours and still not done. I'm currently on /platform/pdk. As for Ubuntu, I've never used it before but I'm running the guide posted on XDA for building with Ubuntu and I've done everything to the point of syncing...which I'm waiting to advance after this is done.
When you have to pull the proprietary files it says to use the device name. In my case it would be Samsung_d2tmo (for T-Mobile sgs3) correct?
I'm working for Freescale Semiconductor on the i.MX series linux BSP. Now we have android running well on i.MX515 platform, and hope to push android kernel repo into android.git.kernel.org. Then what's the process need us to follow? How reviews will be done? And what we should provide?
I have a camera by Cisco and like to stream it's video stream to my android phone. It's coded in MPEG4 so there should be no problem, but it's not working anymore (it worked with another camera a few weeks ago). CODE:...................
There is a big database(15M) in my application, it is too big to download the apk if I publish the source database in myapp.apk. So I encode the db to binary files(300k). But the new problem is I should decode binary files and create the database(with data), this procedure take about several minutes, so I can NOT do this in SQLiteOpenHelper.onCreate(), this is too slow for user experience(though it is a one time procedure, it is still unacceptable).
My application has NO main activity entry in launcher, the main entry is Broadcast Receiver.on Receive, the information should display to user immediately when receiving the broadcast, so I have no chance to display a several minutes "Initializing, please waiting..." UI. The best chance to create database and init data immediately after install, but how to do this, is there any broadcast? or is there any AndroidManifest attribute?
I'm having a weird problem. When I try to update my DatePicker it crashes, but I dont understand why. Via the debugger I could see the date function is filled the way it should be. Do you guys see the problem? String date = dateofbirthNode.getStringValue().split("/"); // "12/31/1969" DatePicker dateofbirthView = (DatePicker)findViewById (R.id.editprofile_dateofbirth_picker); dateofbirthView.init(Integer.parseInt(date), Integer.parseInt(date ), Integer.parseInt(date), null)Code...
I flashed my adp1 to firmware 1.1 following the instruction from HTC. http://www.htc.com/www/support/android/adp.html But after that, I want to modify the /init.rc, after I remount the rootfs as writable, I can edit or replace the /init.rc file. But the file will roll back the original version after reboot the phone. Before I modify the /init.rc, I install the busybox to the phone, then I use 'cp" command to replace the /init.rc Any one can give me some advice?
For something like a 'help I can't get up' app -- is there a way for a user to set a contact number, and then for the app to call that number in the future WITHOUT the user initiating the dialout? I've tried the below but there seems to be a problem. Code...
I am trying to get property which I set in init.rc in Java app. But it always return null. Java code:String value= System.getProperty("ro.MY_PROPERTY");I have check "getprop ro.MY_PROPERTY" in console, it do return "1". But not know why cannot get it in Java app.Code...
I want to modified the init.rc file to import a new configuration file by adding the following lines in the init.rc file import /data/myconfig/conf/init.rc trigger system And the file at /data/myconfig/conf/init.rc contains on system export TRIAL_EXPORT /trial/export/to/be/replaced The problem is that I cannot get the new export (TRIAL_EXPORT)to working. When I issue the command echo $TRIAL_EXPORT on the adb shell I do not get anything. Can somebody point out what is wrong in here?
I have a requirement to change network service permission(such as netd to 660 or something similar) for my application in order to access certain features. I dont want to edit init.rc file to make such changes. Since my application cannot be run in root mode, is there any alternative solution where i could do such modifications from my application point of view.
(HTC Desire running 2.2) Sometimes the init process enters a busy loop, consuming all CPU time. This has happened to me three or four times now. When it happens, Android System Info shows 100% CPU usage and if you run top in a terminal emulator, you can see that it's the init process eating up the CPU.
This makes the phone real slow and the only cure I know of is a reboot.I was going to check out the logs while the init was looping, but I forgot. I don't know how to repeat this - today it happened when I exitted VLC Stream and Convert, but it happened before I even installed this application.
I think this happened before the 2.2 upgrade as well and my son said his Xperia X10 eats the battery real fast sometimes - so maybe the same problem exists in Android 1.6 already.
I have started to port Android on TCC89XX board, I download Android SDK. and applied the patch with kernel 2.6.29, the Processor is having armv6 instruction set. I am not able to see the network up ifconfig is not able to show the network devices.
Also I do not get why there is no "on" binary in the system/bin, system/xbin, the init.rc and init.goldfish.rc. I cannot get the zygote process up. create_socket throws error. If any one knows about this, please tell what I need to do correctly or point me to some correct URL's.
