Unable to run nd-make.sh

For this first time when i run the app into device crashes (file not found) at:


so i tried to configure the project , but when i tried to run ndk-make.sh i got this error :


Why do you try to compile DeltaChat yourself?

seems there are some missing files, you don’t have the deltachat-core-rust sub-repo: https://github.com/deltachat/deltachat-core-rust/

i have not Docker and i do not know how to use it , so i tried to follow manual instruction.
for that i:
1- cloned the deltaChat android
2- follow this link to install rustup https://medium.com/visly/rust-on-android-19f34a2fb43
3- try to run nd-make.sh
=> i got the given error

do i have to clone this repo either ?

You did not answer my question on your intention, @salim-lachdhaf
It depends on your intention whether we will help you or not.
If you are trying to sell a clone of DeltaChat we are not going to help you (for free), for example.
On the other hand if you want to contribute we will help you of course. :smile:

no you have to follow https://github.com/deltachat/deltachat-android#check-out-repository to pull the sub-module, too.

@Simon in the further future , yes , i’m thinking to create a custom pro version (to sell) with advanced new features, but for now i will contribute or simply understand the current version …

Please talk with merlinux(email: delta@merlinux.eu) about your plans to be on the safe side legally. (when you start with your “pro” version)
Two important points:

  • The name DeltaChat is trademarked so it can’t be used (without permission from merlinux)
  • If you make your own alternative client, stay compatible with DeltaChat.

@Simon thank you. I will contact merlinux.eu onces everythings works fine and i finish my features and decide if i will continu with the plugin.

i followed your instruction for cloning and it seems my issue, but now i got a new error:

and this is my ...NDK\toolchains\llvm\prebuilt\windows-x86_64\bin file content:

Any help please ?

I would try to do it on Ubuntu Linux instead of doing it on windows or just install docker or podman, everything else seems to complicated and I don’t have the time to research how to do install something on windows (as I don’t use windows anymore).
Maybe https://chocolatey.org/ could help you to install something. But as I said stick to the docker container and you will have less problems, there is a reason we made it.

thank you :slight_smile:
