Android SDK on Linux 64bit

Dispite there being only a 32bit version of the android SDK, you can still work with it on your 64bit machine, make sure you have the following packages installed:

Debian, Ubuntu, etc

apt-get install ia32-libs
apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

Fedora, CentOS, etc

yum install glibc.i686 zlib.i686 libstdc++.i686  

Download the 32bit SDK

wget http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r18-linux.tgz

(If link is dead see Reference)

Extract and change into the newly created directory and run tools/android update sdk –no-ui. This will start updating everything in the SDK - Note this will take a while.

You should now be ready to start developing.
