Post Problem downloading android ICS version 4 to the red hat linux based system

Hello to all the seniors in this forum who spend their precious time in helping out the newbies.

I am finding problem in downloading the latest android version4 ICS on to my system , i just need to know how can i download the JDk 6 to my system

I downloaded the Phyton 2.4 and Git 1.7 and tried installing it but while checking the git tags it gave me an error
fatal: Not a git repository (or any parent up to mount parent /projdata1)
Stopping at filesystem boundary (GIT_DISCOVERY_ACROSS_FILESYSTEM not set)
when i used the following command git tag -v TAG_NAME.

my other major doubt is in the given link they have said to use only Ubuntu systems , is it better for me to use Ubuntu system for downloading the software.

Hope i get some inputs ,which will solve my problem soon.

Yes, depending on how old is your "red hat linux based system" you are better to use a newer version of Linux. CentOS/RHEL5 is probably too old. It is not impossible to use it, but you will have more trouble then using a recent version of Ubuntu or Fedora.

JDK can be downloaded from Oracle website, bundled with Eclipse (you also need it for ICS) or using the OpenJDK/IcedTea community version.

Thanks for spending ur precious tym, after going through your answer i installed the new Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot).i downloaded the source code.
I tried building it and as i want to run it in my desktop/system as i had to choose a target i gave the command lunch_panda-eng .I am following the official android app website .
Next i tried building it n gave the command make -j1 as my system is single core configuration .as it is given in the website after the make command we can test with the emulator command , i had a long wait of 90 min i got an error in the workbench.
Can i have a solution for this or can i know what mistake i have committed in building it.

Is lunch_panda-eng & make -j1 right commands given by me ????

wat is the right commands to be given by me to make Ubuntu system into android ics system
please help me

This was the next step to follow by me

Emulate an Android Device

The emulator is added to your path automatically by the build process. To run the emulator, type emulator
