Android SDK error when "executing step "Build Android APK""
I'm having my first shot at Android development using Qt and have run into a wall or two while setting up my environment.
I have downloaded the required packages as described here http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/androidgs.html and have updated the SDK.
When attempting to build and run an application on either a virtual or physical device I get the following error:
BUILD FAILED /home/daniel_j/compiled/androidsdk/android-sdk-linux/tools/ant/build.xml:888: The following error occurred while executing this line: /home/daniel_j/compiled/androidsdk/android-sdk-linux/tools/ant/build.xml:890: The following error occurred while executing this line: /home/daniel_j/compiled/androidsdk/android-sdk-linux/tools/ant/build.xml:902: The following error occurred while executing this line: /home/daniel_j/compiled/androidsdk/android-sdk-linux/tools/ant/build.xml:283: null returned: 1 Total time: 1 second Building the android package failed! -- For more information, run this command with --verbose. 10:29:47: The process "/home/daniel_j/compiled/qtdev/5.7/android_x86/bin/androiddeployqt" exited with code 14. Error while building/deploying project untitled (kit: Android for x86 (GCC 4.9, Qt 5.7.0)) When executing step "Build Android APK"
I cannot see a particular issue listed in the error.
Whether related or not I also have this issue with the NDK:
The GDB in the NDK appears to have broken python support.
It attempts to link me to a fixed version, however I am unable to download it (internal server error). http://download.qt.io/official_releases/gdb/
Is this particular issue related to the one above?
Thanks for your time.
I would check two things:
- NDK version. If you downloaded the latest (v 12 something), you could try downgrading it to 11, as I think the latest has had some issues. (I found that after changing the NDK, QtCreator is usually confused so you may want to reinstall the Qt for Android SDK)
- Your kit. If you are making software for a regular Android device, use a kit that has ARMv7 in its name
Thanks for the suggestions!
Sadly I still get the same results with older NDK versions.
I have been trying two kits, one for my device and the other a virtual device, neither work - both give the same error.
It seems installing JDK 8 solved thei ssue at hand, oen step closer!
