NDK broken on OS X Snow Leopard

On my OS X 10.6.8 system, I seem to be unable to effectively use the NDK, as everything appears to be compiled in such a way that it's unusable to me:

 

-bash: /Developer/SDKs/bbndk-1.0/host/macosx/x86/usr/bin/make: Bad CPU type in executable

 

Is there anyone watching this forum on 10.6.8 who can confirm that they also see this behavior, or perhaps knows a workaround? Smiley Happy

 

Thanks!

Re: NDK broken on OS X Snow Leopard

Doh. Turns out that my CPU is only 32-bit and I had sworn it's 64-bit. Guess that would explain it.

Perhaps the installer should detect this situation and prohibit installation on 32-bit hosts? Smiley Happy

So the system requirements and installer need to be updated accordingly. Smiley Happy
