Do I have requirements for android studio?
« on: July 24, 2018, 11:01:09 AM »
I have hardware requirements, but i am worried about software/os requirements. Does x64 linux support running 32bit or x86 apps? They say requirements:

Linux

    GNOME or KDE desktop
    Tested on UbuntuĀ® 14.04 LTS, Trusty Tahr (64-bit distribution capable of running 32-bit applications)
    64-bit distribution capable of running 32-bit applications
    GNU C Library (glibc) 2.19 or later
    3 GB RAM minimum, 8 GB RAM recommended; plus 1 GB for the Android Emulator
    2 GB of available disk space minimum,
    4 GB Recommended (500 MB for IDE + 1.5 GB for Android SDK and emulator system image)
    1280 x 800 minimum screen resolution

Running 32-bit apps on a 64-bit OS requires compatibility libraries. A pure 64-bit OS like CorePure64 does not support 32-bit apps because there are no compatibility libraries complied for it.

So short answer is "no"? And you mean "compiled" (not "complied")? I should use another Linux?

Hi AsocialSurvival
Maybe  core64  is what you are looking for? See here:

If you want to run both 32-bit and 64-bit apps, then yes, you will need a different Linux distribution. Be advised that other distributions may have support available for 32-bit apps with the 64-bit base system, but it may not be installed by default. Slackware for one falls into this category.
