I'll leave this here until I get enough time to put the changes in the wiki page: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2259929 GermainZ (talk) 18:45, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Building RAM usage
Using the official build instructions from the LineageOS Wiki, I did not notice heavy usage of the /tmp directory. Instead I needed around 10 GB of Memory for the build to succeed. I think the behaviour is the same for AOSP.
If you are planning to install and use android studio, Do not also installand .
The use of adb from android-tools interferes with the adb built into android studio causing it to crash when you stop the application after running it on a physical device. Even after unplugging the phone, it is still registered as being connected to the computer preventing it from connecting again once plugged back in requiring a restart.
Emulator seems to runs faster with Skia enabled. In
adb shell, do
$ su # setprop debug.hwui.renderer skiagl # stop # start
As well, I noticed that
emulator breaks without running as
emulator -gpu swiftshader_indirect.
Dummy packages explanation
Currently the dummy packages are not explained. What are they for?
