I'm having trouble running the Android SDK on both of my Macs running OS X 10.6.2 Snow Leopard. This appears to be a 64-bit vs. 32-bit issue, as Snow Leopard now defaults to 64-bit everything, including the Java virtual machine.
I found this webpage with instructions on how to get the Android tools to run in the 32-bit Java VM, and I am now able to run the Android GUI tool to download SDK files, create AVM's, etc. However, when I try the Hello World tutorial and get to the point where I run my application under the Android emulator, everything goes south.
The emulator appears to start but it hangs (spinning beachball of death cursor) without displaying anything. (This only hangs the emulator; the rest of the system still works fine.) If I follow the exact same steps (minus the 32-bit Java hack) in a Windows virtual machine, everything works fine.
This occurs on both my Mac Pro tower and 13" MacBook Pro. Does anyone have any suggestions?
