Android SDK Part 3: OpenBSD

Tuesday April 27, 2010 by cl0secall

Here goes nothing. I'm going to go ahead and try to port the Android SDK tools to OpenBSD. Hope it's not as bad as I anticipate. I've already installed OpenBSD on my Acer again. The page for that will come soon. OpenBSD has some rough edges on this box. They are in different places than on FreeBSD, and I suspect that at least one of the problems I have been able to resolve under Open I would have also been able to solve under Free, had I known to try it.

In the meantime, I've been trying to get the JDK 1.5 installed so I can begin to build Eclipse from source, as Open doesn't have a recent enough version of Eclipse that I can actually use. Once the JDK is done, I'll pursue the rest of the dependencies. Hopefully most of the packages are recent enough that I can satisfy all of the dependencies for Eclipse. I hadn't checked yet to make sure. If not, I may need to switch back to Free, or throw in the towel and switch to Ubuntu or OpenSUSE. At the moment I think it's time for bed. I'm going to let the JDK try to finish overnight.
