Initializing a Build Environment
Installing the JDK The Sun JDK is no longer in Ubuntu's main package repository. In order to download it, you need to add the appropriate repository and indicate to the system which JDK should be used.
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
Installing required packages
sudo apt-get install git-core gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential \ zip curl zlib1g-dev libc6-dev lib32ncurses5-dev ia32-libs \ x11proto-core-dev libx11-dev lib32readline-gplv2-dev lib32z-dev \ libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib mingw32 tofrodos python-markdown \ libxml2-utils xsltproc
On Ubuntu 10.10:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/mesa/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib32/mesa/libGL.so
On Ubuntu 11.10:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libX11.so.6 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libX11.so
Create the Directories
You will need to set up some directories in your build environment.
To create them run:
mkdir -p ~/bin mkdir -p ~/ada
Install the Repository
Enter the following to download make executable the "repo" binary:
curl https://dl-ssl.google.com/dl/googlesource/git-repo/repo > ~/bin/repo chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
You may need to reboot for these changes to take effect.
Now enter the following to initialize the repository:
Before you continue --> run this in the terminal
git config --global review.review.androiddeveloperalliance.org.username <gerrit username> repo init -u git://github.com/AndroidDeveloperAlliance/manifest.git -b jb repo sync
Building the System
The basic sequence of build commands is as follows: Initialize Initialize the environment with the envsetup.sh script. Note that replacing "source" with a single dot saves a few characters, and the short form is more commonly used in documentation.
. build/envsetup.sh lunch
Enter the number of the build you want to start and press enter
Build the Code:
