Guide to Configuring ADB and Compiling from Source on Fedora KDE

Setting up ADB or an Android build environment can be a time consuming and sometimes awkward task, especially for those who might not have a great deal of previous experience with Linux-based operating systems. Without a doubt, the most commonly used distribution is Ubuntu, partly because it is one of the more user-friendly distros available and less daunting to those who might be taking their first steps away from the safe and familiar surroundings of Windows or OS X. If you look for a guide on setting up ADB or building Android from source, it’s highly likely that you will be directed towards Ubuntu.

Ubuntu however is not necessarily the first choice for those who are already comfortable with Linux, and some may indeed prefer to build on another distribution. XDA Forum Member 3ndymion218 certainly falls into that category, and decided to take the time to share his experience of setting up a build environment using Fedora KDE. It’s an incredibly thorough description of the entire process and very easy to follow. While the general principles are the same for most distros, each does seem to have some unique quirks of its own when it comes to something like this, and such guides might just save you a great deal of head scratching.

So if you’re already a Fedora user looking to build Android or fancy a change of distro, head over to the tutorial thread.
