When i run configure it tells me that it cannot link to libffi and compile with it.

This is weird as it is already installed and I don't know what I am supposed to do since all needed packages are installed.

Command:

bash configure \
--enable-option-checking=fatal \
--disable-warnings-as-errors \
--enable-headless-only \
--with-jvm-variants=zero \
--build=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu \
--host=i686-linux-android \
--target=i686-linux-android \
--with-cups-include=/usr/include \
--with-devkit=$ANDROID_DEVKIT \
--with-extra-ldflags=-L/root/libffi-3.4.2 \
--with-debug-level=release \
--with-boot-jdk=/root/jdk-17.0.1

Here is the output:

It is recommended that you use --openjdk-target instead.

You say that "[libffi] is already installed", but the configuration script claims otherwise:

configure: error: Found libffi but could not link and compile with it. You might be able to fix this by running 'sudo apt-get install libffi-dev'.

It's likely that either libffi isn't installed in a standard place, for example it might be under /opt/lib or /usr/local/lib and you haven't updated the linker configuration to include the target directory, or you haven't installed the development package libffi-dev.

  • I have used --with-libffi --with-libffi-include --with-libffi-lib and non of them change anything regarding the error. So what should i set?

  • Your libffi is for the correct architecture?
