    Hi, i am trying to build linux kernel for android emulator(Eclair version). i have downloaded the android source code, and also "$repo sync" was successful. now for Building, when i try to execute "$make" command i get the following error.
    root@ubuntu:~/mydroid# make

    PLATFORM_VERSION_CODENAME=REL PLATFORM_VERSION=2.1-update1 TARGET_PRODUCT=generic TARGET_BUILD_VARIANT=eng TARGET_SIMULATOR= TARGET_BUILD_TYPE=release TARGET_ARCH=arm HOST_ARCH=x86 HOST_OS=linux HOST_BUILD_TYPE=release
    BUILD_ID=ECLAIR

    Checking build tools versions...
    You are attempting to build with the incorrect version of java.
    Your version is: /bin/bash: java: command not found. The correct version is: 1.5.
    Please follow the machine setup instructions at http://source.android.com/download
    build/core/main.mk:111: * stop. Stop.
    i had open-jdk6 and sun-jdk-6 installed, now for building android source, it needs sun-jdk-1.5. for this i tried to install sun-jdk-1.5 from the .bin file, but the default JVM is not initialised to jdk-1.5, and i am not able to do it. i uninstalled open-jdk-6 but i couldnt remove sun-jdk-6. i have installed sun-jdk-6 from a .bin file from oracle/downloads.
    i am following steps from below link
