qemu

I'm not sure why, but I was able to get the emulator working just fine without installing the `qemu` package at all. I did set up the kernel re: KVM and all the rest, though. Pistos (talk) 22:04, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

This is because Android Studio uses its own modified version of qemu. Therefore, there is no need to install system qemu. Also note that the Android Studio version of qemu cannot be replaced with that of the system as it includes some extensions needed to work with Android virtual machines. --Adasss (talk) 12:21, 18 May 2022 (UTC)

versioning

I don't understand what was behind the decision to leave packages only for canary versions of Android Studio. The Canary and Beta versions are exactly as stated here: Android Studio Preview, preview versions. I work as an android developer and we don't even use the latest stable version there. Depending on the scope of work, we use one or two versions back. Code migration between Android Studio versions is not easy, especially in large projects. And as for those preview builds, I don't find them reliable enough even to build my own released apps (at least until they reach release candidate stage). As for my own Android Studio builds repository, I'll try to switch to a slotted approach to ebuilds when I get some time. Adasss (talk) 9:37, 7 June 2023 (UTC)

Hello Adasss , this discussion is best had with the ebuild maintainers themselves (either on the mailing list or on the appropriate IRC channel). Opening discussion topics here on the wiki are for the purposes of dialoging about improvements to the documentation for the package or concept. Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 17:32, 7 June 2023 (UTC)
