    I was getting a build setup going again a couple months ago and I had the same problem, I figured it just didn't install properly or my pos computer, so I uninstalled all of vmware and started it all over from scratch again and still couldn't get the same prompt to go away. Do I feel stupid now after seeing it was something so simple.

    Just wanted to thank everyone on this thread that has given advice. I've been following for a coulpe of weeks. (I'm a slow learner)lol And didn't think I would ever figure it out . But tonight I built my first rom following these instructions. Like "Earthfire78" said Linux mint requires some packages that ubuntu already have I guess. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks. Hope to keep following and learning!
    Ok now I have a new problem. Forgive me if this has already been covered but I've searched for two days to no avail! I recently upgraded to mint 13(Maya) l have Java 1.7 so I get this error, (need Java 1.6). I've tried every way to get 1.6 with no luck. Can anyone direct me in the right direction? Thanks in advance. Sorry noob here.lol

    Edit: I'm pretty sure I don't have the correct repository in my source. List

    You have to get sun java6 from a different source, I can't remember if I used lucid or multiverse or both:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
    // or
    sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy multiverse"
    Use this to get java6, Java 7 won't work.

    Thanks man, worked like a charm. I'm glad to say I'm now running a rom my computer complied! Now I'll have to learn how to modify the source to truly make it "my build" but I have to take baby steps.lol. Oh yeah, when I flashed my complied rom using the instructions from post 2 my phone booted to a black screen. So I pulled battery after giving it plenty of time to load and booted into recovery and flashed mrg666's kernel for zv9 and everything is great! Thanks again to everyone that's taken the time to make this all possible.

    Sounds like the the first mod you need to figure out is to switch kernels

    Your welcome. I have fallen behind on building since ics came out, there is no way my old PC can handle it, so i like it when I can still answer a question. Plus the more brains we have building, the better our devices are.

    I have made changes to the source code for DSPManager making it more suitable for the cheap headsets/headphones we all have.

    android_packages_apps_DSPManager

    Also removed the room sound effects as those effects are pointless IMHO and cause the music to sound like crap.


    Code:
    git clone git://github.com/Earthnfire78/android_packages_apps_DSPManager.git
    Edit: have not made the changes in the other languages yet, and I'm working on a Hindi Translation for some of the basic system apps. Kind of a hard thing to do as something do not translate very well.

    So I'm trying to compile the lg marquee source code on ubuntu 12.04 it compiles correctly but all of the files in /etc are links instead of the actual executable like su or busybox. They have the little arrow on them instead of being the su executable. I have no idea what's causing this. Any ideas.
    P.S I already know this is the wrong forum. I don't care. IT's my favorite

    thats really odd. ive never seen that before. Maybe you can git clone where the come from and and them in manually? or fork it from a different source, if there is one.

    Its not. I just built on my 12.04 machine last night with no errors. It may fix it, but I don't think that's the problem

    Ubuntu 12.04 builds just fine, there are some extra lib your need for it, just try not running updates for for the build libraries or your may have to reinstall the library files again if they get uninstalled.

    LeslieAnn's box uses lucid (10.04) because that's the recommended version. If you're going with Ubuntu, I'd highly recommend it for exactly that reason.

    I personally use Debian squeeze (6.0) because I have become annoyed with Ubuntu's packaging and standards choices. It works equally well.

    If you prefer to run something different on the bare metal, VMs are always an option. VMWare and VirtualBox both work great for me. And if you're a Unix power user (or just a novice that wants to learn something new and cool), check out schroot and debootstrap. They make for a super lightweight build setup that is totally independent from your desktop OS.

    I did use Linux Mint for a bit, but to many apps need java to run and would run into problems building because java would crash.

    I'm going with 10.04 for now debian sounds interesting but I don't have time to learn or frustrate myself with it right now. I kicked 12.04 to the curb. I like linux mint cinnamon but right now it's still based off of ubuntu too much and honestly if I could I would drop kick mark shuttleworth, ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04 in the face harder than chuck norris.



    LMAO chuck norris smileys to replace the android ones.

    Has anyone gotten a full ICS CM9 build with the linaro toolchain?

    I am able to fix several minor issues in dalvik and frameworks/base. Hit me up for diffs if you want them, they're pretty tiny. I expect someone in CM land will fix them soon.

    However, I am having linker issues. My GingerKernel-thunderc repo won't link because the linaro linker is complaining about usage of DIV. If I switch to use the bfd linker, the kernel links properly but then frameworks/base fails to link some things that use the Singleton class. So I'm stuck....

    im pretty sure bob did. i built off of his git last night after he pushed to add the toolchain. i believe he said it booted. i havent gotten around to testing.

    let me flash the build and ill let you know if he hasnt replied yet.

    EDIT: to prevent any confusion, this was build was built on the day he implemented the linaro toolchain. Also, it looks like he reverted using it, so it must have caused issues. ill report back in a few min.
