This is a problem with the default "filesystem 2015.09-1" package, where "/etc/profile" sets "/usr/bin" in PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin" *before* including from "/etc/profile.d/". You can edit /etc/profile, removing "/usr/bin", and then, *after* "# Load profiles..." add
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin

It seems a bit odd though, having the overlap with the community/android-tools package, and installing android-sdk-platform-tools in /opt.

Thank you for your package.
I just installed it but I was a little bit disturbed right after because the command `adb` wasn't available.
I had to recheck the PKGBUILD to see what was done exactly.

Wouldn't it be useful to reload /etc/profile at the end of the PKGBUILD or redefining the PATH ?

Thanks for pointing that out, good to know. I guess I'll downgrade then.

vlad: so I assume this is not going to change, right? If so, does that mean that this package is not suitable for 32 bit machines?

Hi guys.
No luck at the forum. Let's see here.

Same trouble that geo909.

The two versions of adb have very different size:

user@host android-sdk-platform-tools]$ ls -l /usr/bin/adb
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 175392 sep 27 13:00 /usr/bin/adb
[user@host android-sdk-platform-tools]$ ls -l /opt/android-sdk/platform-tools/adb
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2152530 sep 18 00:01 /opt/android-sdk/platform-tools/

But I think that this PKGBUILD is good for both 32/64 bit machine, isn't it? I think that it is something else going wrong...

Meanwhile, an overwrite of adb from /usr/bin to /opt/android-sdk/platformtools/ did the trick. But it's a very poor workaround....

Anybody more having this problem?

I'm having trouble getting adb to run. When I install this package and run adb I get: "bash: /opt/android-sdk/platform-tools/adb: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error"

If on the other hand I install eg android-tools, adb runs perfectly fine.

I am using a 32 bit maching. I think this package provided adb for 64 bit machines. Am I right? Is that expected or am I missing something?

Thank you

Hmmm, lib32-ncurses is indeed listed in the dependencies. Maybe Aura somehow didn't detect that, which is what I'm using to install it.

trusktr commented on 2015-10-21 20:43

Build failed, saying that lib32-ncurses was not found. Does this need to be listed as a dependency (or build dependency)?
