Each software will be configured and interconnected, and then changes will be verified. Configuration includes settings in /etc/environment and how to recover from errors resulting in a login-loop. Configuration also includes use of MultiArch, dpkg, and apt-get to provide Android SDK-compatible libraries on 64-bit CPU systems. Installation of the full Oracle Java Development Kit is followed by setting this Java as the system default by using update-alternatives and the setting of alternatives-mode to manual. Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) include both Android/Studio and Android/Eclipse. Android SDK Manager adds packages and downloads components and platforms for emulation.
