I'm having trouble installing the Android sdk in Eclipse. I'm running 64-bit Fedora which may be related.

This question is semi-related:

I'm getting this error in eclipse:

[2012-03-15 17:07:21 - DDMS] DDMS files not found: /home/jason/platform-tools/adb /home/jason/tools/hprof-conv /home/jason/tools/traceview 
[2012-03-15 17:08:38 - adb] Failed to get the adb version: Cannot run program "/home/jason/programs/android-sdks/platform-tools/adb": error=2, No such file or directory

And when I run adb from the command line I get: /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory which seems to be related to 64-bit versus 32-bit.

Well, I had the same problem under F17, and I fixed it following the steps Jason gave, with the downgrade correction given by kedzie. And now mine works, too.

Even nicer to notice, I see that though Fedora calls it a 'downgrade', typing "yum info libstdc++*" shows that it really does leave both the original 64 bit and the 'downgrade' to 32 bit installed.

Thanks Jason - old post I know but you just helped this linux n00b complete setting up of ADB on a new Fedora 19 installation. Much appreciated!

To simplify, you can just run the following one-liner:

sudo yum install libstdc++.i686 ncurses-libs.i686 zlib.i686

After looking at the answer to the other question a little more deeply it looks like these are the libraries I need:

sudo yum install libstdc++.i686
sudo yum install ncurses-libs.i686
sudo yum install zlib.i686

And it seems to be working!

yum install zlib.i686 did the work.! Thanks for all this. This saved my day. Now I can sleep tonight. I was about to pull my hair. Cordova was working fine at my office. Only now I could get it working on my Home PC

On Fedora 17 you won't be able to install libstdc++.i686 due package version constraints. The solution is to do:

yum shell    
downgrade libstdc++   
install libstdc++.i686

Although late, here is what I did. I was also ran into the problem of running android-sdk on my 64-bit fedora 17. Searching on Google take me to this link: HOWTO Setup Android Development and it worked for me. Here is the important section from there:

If you have 64-bit systems, you will need to install some 32bit packages, because Android SDK is 32bit.

yum install glibc.i686 glibc-devel.i686 libstdc++.i686 \
            zlib-devel.i686 ncurses-devel.i686 \
            libX11-devel.i686 libXrender.i686 \

What must I do because I especially want to create AVD's?

P.S :I even tried to installed the packages above mentionned in the thread but I was unable to install them. Thank you for your tine and help in advance.
