Gsoc_weekly_report_2

Last week went slow, I could n’t do much work on my project.I had my end semester exams  so most of time got passed for preparation of my papers.Finally exam went well and got over on 16th may.Now no more exams for at least 3-4 months.But Still during examination too i managed to get some time for one of my difficult task :- building emulator and yeah 🙂 i finally built the b2g emulator.Also, we discussed UI-flow for Bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=829820       Cheers !!! 🙂 🙂

My mentor ‘Gabriele Svelto’ helped me a lot in building the b2g emulator.Firstly i thought i will be easy to built the emulator as i have to follow steps given in MDN.But actually it was little bit difficult.I faced a few problems.

First problem was, i was working on 32 bit linux.We tried (me and my mentor) to built the emulator but got many errors and built failed.We tried so many to things but still problem remained same.After debugging for a long time, we finally move on to 64 bit linux system.

Second one, as i was behind firewall (college network), i faced difficulty in clonning the codes from codesaurora.org(to built B2G it uses some android codes too which is in codeaurora.org repo) because it was refusing http/https connection.

Following errors were coming:

remote: Counting objects: 60866, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (19029/19029), done.
fatal: unable to connect to codeaurora.org:5 MiB | 732 KiB/s

Resolving deltas: 100% (34102/34102), done.

But finally i got the solution with the help of my mentor.

In next blog : Detailed steps to build B2G emulator and how to simulate various functionality on it.
