Installed android-sdk. It exposes $ANDROID_HOME but not $ANDROID_SDK. I try the following command but fails:

$ ANDROID_SDK=$ANDROID_HOME yaourt fb-adb-git

It works but not ideal. Building this package eats 4.4G in my /tmp - I have to enlarge /tmp or use $TMPDIR to build this package correctly.

Can you verify whether this is how the PKGBUILD needs to be modified?

Since rev 338 fb-adb requires the Java part of Android SDK:

ndk-r10e x86_64 sha512 is outdated
both with ndk-r10 and r11 build fails with 'pod2text not found'

i had to add export PATH="$PATH:/usr/bin/core_perl" to build().

@yan12125: Ahh I missed that, thanks for noticing!

yan12125 commented on 2015-11-24 09:29

Thanks for adopting my ideas. I think there's something more to be removed: the zip command in build() and 'zip' in makedepends.

prurigro commented on 2015-11-16 00:24

@yan12125: Thanks for letting me know! I'm updating the package right now and am removing prelink from the makedepends and the compiled adb binary from /usr/share (let me know if I misunderstood what you meant)

yan12125 commented on 2015-11-10 16:18

Hello @prurigro This package can be built without prelink anymore. Also the fb-adb stub is extracted to the device by the host binary automatically. There's no need to manually copy fb-adb ARM binary to the device anymore.
