[SOLVED] Android Source Repo Download Help (Python Issue?)
NOTE: I Am On Linux Mint 9 32 bit
Okay So I Have Lately been trying TO Get The Latest Android Source Code From
Now I Follow The Down To The Wire (The Ones For Ubuntu, But They Should In Theory Work For Mint 9), And Everything Works Up Until I get To This Part:
Initializing a Repo client
Run "repo init" to bring down the latest version of Repo with all its most recent bug fixes. You must specify a URL for the manifest:
$ repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git
If you would like to check out a branch other than "master", specify it with -b, like:
$ repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git -b cupcake
When prompted, configure Repo with your real name and email address. If you plan to submit code, use an email address that is associated with a Google account .
A successful initialization will end with a message such as
repo initialized in /mydroid
Your client directory should now contain a.repodirectory where files such as the manifest will be kept.
And When I Try To Run That Line Through The Terminal I Get This Error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/bin/repo", line 91, in ?
ImportError: No module named readline
Now I Know What The Problem is, It Is Looking For The readline.so in the the lib folder, Yet Even Though It Is There It Still Wont Work.
Now I Have Tried All 2.x.x Versions Of Python (2.4.6, 2.5.5, & 2.6.4) and None Of Them Work.
Also With Each Version I Run:
$ ./configure --enable-readline
And Still the Same Error.
i Have Been working On this For About 3 Hours Now And Still Now Luck.
I Tried A Google Search But Every Topic Get Close To Helping Someone Get It Then Stops.
Please Help Me Out Here ?
