I try to setup development enviroment for Android apps. Before all my development was performed in ubuntu running with virtual box. I have install adt plugin for my eclipse and download Android SDK in this Ubuntu, but find out that android emulator didn't start in virtualbox VM. At present moment I didn't find any clear tutorial hwo to run anroid emulator in eclipse under VirtualVM, instead I find a lot of notice about very slow working of emulator in VirtualVM and recomendation to use Android x86 as Virtual VM for debugging. I wonder if there is a way to start two Virtual VM (Ubuntu with IDE and Android x86 for debugging) and connect them somehow to allow debug code from Ubuntu in Android x86?

P.S. I also will be thankful for clear tutorial how to run emulator in eclipse in VirtualVM.

What are the specs of your VM? How much RAM did you give it, and how many virtual processors? 2 separate virtual machines sounds like overkill, lets try to figure out the root cause of the problem. –  BigHomie Jul 17 '13 at 12:07
    
At ubuntu now I set 2 processors and 4Gb of RAM. Total in my system 8Gb ram and 4 processors (Intel i3), as I read for android x86 512Mb + 1 processor is enought. Root of the problem I already write - android emulator didn`t start in VM (Ubuntu). I find out this stackoverflow.com/questions/14971621/… on this problem. –  sphinks Jul 17 '13 at 12:12
