I'm having lots of problems with Gradle and Android Studio.

Making changes in any resource in the project can randomly give an exception during compilation, this is what i see in Android Studio:

Gradle: Error while executing aapt command
Gradle: Execution failed for task ':App Code:processReleaseResources'.

And this is what i see executing Gradle manually:

"/Applications/Android Studio.app/sdk/tools/templates/gradle/wrapper/gradlew" asD
Relying on packaging to define the extension of the main artifact has been deprecated and is scheduled to be removed in Gradle 2.0

UPDATE

I tried manually executing aapt, getting the full command from the error message that gradle spits, it failed with:

Segmentation fault: 11

But once in a while it runs correctly and creates the package.

No errors other than "Segmentation fault: 11" are shown.

This is the command i'm trying to execute:

"/Applications/Android Studio.app/sdk/build-tools/android-4.2.2/aapt" 
package -vv -f -a --no-crunch 
-I "/Applications/Android Studio.app/sdk/platforms/android-17/android.jar"

--debug-mode --custom-package com.appandroid.app 
--output-text-symbols "/Users/oslinux/Documents/workspace/app-android/latest-update/App Code/build/symbols/release"

FINAL UPDATE

It finally seems like i solved this issue cleaning up my resources, removing some unused XML and an unused theme. This obviously does not answer this question that i guess is of common interest.

Navigating the web i found that AAPT is know to fail with SegFault11, and often it does not give any information about the real error which can be caused by:

  • +id in Styles
  • Duplicated resources / libraries
  • unknown, like mine

So it would be useful to: 1. Find a way to identify the real cause of this error 2. Wait for an update to AAPT that returns some error message 3. Write a list of possible common causes.

    • Same problem, and same solution. I had originally started out the project with an actionbar, and then realized using a drawer for main navigation may be a better fit. I kept the original files around (renaming them all from 'main', of course) to port logic over, and in the event I wanted to revert back to using the tabs. Keeping all that in the project caused the same error you listed, and deleting the class, activities, and layouts resolved it for me.
    • @Luca: Interesting finds! Would be great if you add your final update as an answer to make it more visible to others. Also I would be interested in the links you found :)

I'm copying here my final update as an answer.

As Dale Cooper suggested, you could also try to run Lint and see if it finds any warning about resources.

I'm trying to find links to users experiencing those other causes (It's been some time since the original question), i will update this answer when i'll find them back.

    • Your post put me on the right track to get out of this hole. I just found the source (in my version) of this terrible error. It was in the menu.xml file which was generated for me (and I don't need). The app:showAsEntry attribute was unbounded. Wow what a waste of time. Thanks!

I just had sort of the same problem, but on the processDebugResources step. After a couple of hours I started to try running diffrent verisons of aapt (/build-tools/[version]/aapt) and it turns out that they give one hell of different error messages. The one I was originally using was 19.0.1 which only gave me Segmentation fault but when i tried out 18.1.1 I was suddenly pointed to a line in a menu.xml which had a resource missmatch. The problem turns out to be that I hade removed the default @string/action_settings because I thought I didn't use it.

Conclusion, trying different versions of aapt may help you find a resource missmatch.

    • +1, this fixed my case. I was getting a segfault with exit code 138 from aapt in the processDebugResources step as well. I downloaded the 18.1.1 build tools and ran its version of aapt manually (using otherwise the same invocation as given in the error log from Gradle). It responded with a helpful error message rather than a segfault.

Yeah, I was just struggling with similiar issue. It turned out that I've got some non-finished code in menu.xml file:

   <item android:id="@+id/action_search"
    android:title="@string/action_search"
    android:icon="@drawable/"
    app:showAsAction="ifRoom|collapseActionView"
    />

exactly this line was missing drawable reference:

 android:icon="@drawable/"

I found it through running Lint (Analyze -> Inspect code) and it was in Android -> Android Resource Validation as Cannot resolve symbol '@drawable/'

I had the same issue and it was a very very hard to locate it.

I want to share the steps I made to locate and solve this problem.

My gradle ouput looks like this:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':libs:base:processDebugResources'.

  Error Code:

First of all I switched to 18.1.1 version, it didn't helped a lot. Then I tried to add -v flag and run this command:

/opt/android-sdk/build-tools/18.1.1/aapt package -f --no-crunch -I /opt/android-sdk/platforms/android-19/android.jar -M /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/bundles/debug/AndroidManifest.xml -S /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/res/all/debug -A /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/bundles/debug/assets -m -J /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/source/r/debug -F /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/libs/base-debug.ap_ --debug-mode --non-constant-id --output-text-symbols /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/bundles/debug -v

It helped a little, but didn't give a clue about the problem. Then I tried strace and it helped a lot:

strace -s 100 /opt/android-sdk/build-tools/18.1.1/aapt package -f --no-crunch -I /opt/android-sdk/platforms/android-19/android.jar -M /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/bundles/debug/AndroidManifest.xml -S /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/res/all/debug -A /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/bundles/debug/assets -m -J /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/source/r/debug -F /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/libs/base-debug.ap_ --debug-mode --non-constant-id --output-text-symbols /home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/bundles/debug 

In the output of previous command I've found this line:

open("/home/m039/WorkProjects/libs/base/build/res/all/debug/values/values.xml", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = 5

In values.xml file I've found all resources, then I started remove tag by tag from the end of the file and execute aapt command above until I found the problem.

My problem was in id resource.

I had this issue after importing the eclipse project. Issue was from my side. In eclipse, I put a png image in drawable which was actually a jpg image (I just renamed the extension from .jpg to .png). It was working fine with eclipse but was failing when imported to Android Studio.

Execution failed for task ':app:mergeDebugResources'. Crunching Cruncher d.png failed

I just deleted the d.png and added a original png file. It worked!

I removed an accidentally added header in the menu xml:

Remove this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Leave this:

<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

So since I had a similar issue I would like to post my solution: After this error:

failed to capture snapshot of output files for task…

I cleaned my project and it worked again. Why I don't have a clue but it worked. :)

It has happened to me for an Activity declared in the manifest whose title was remove from the string file.

This bug can be Anything related to resources. The best way to find the error is:

  1. Save your code.
  2. Return to the last commit that worked.
  3. Add your resources changes one by one until it fails again.

I have had a similiar issue. I guess it generally happens when there is some incomplete tag or something in the xml or some thing malformed..In my case there issue was with the theme. In design view in android studio in my xml file..i selected a new theme...that way it resolved the issues...hope this helps for all...

I ran into the same problem and issue was with my build directory, currently Android Studio supports directory path less than 100 characters.

Found solution for this:

In root build.gradle

allprojects {
    buildDir = "/path/to/build/${rootProject.name}/${project.name}"
}

and docs https://gradle.org/docs/current/userguide/writing_build_scripts.html

    • We are getting "FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.i > Packing build cache entry" while building project. will this answer help us?
    • Looking at your error message indicates that it is not connected with the question however inorder to solve this try to delete the "$HOME/.gradle"

run this command in your terminal in respective project.

./gradlew assembleDebug

this will give information about the error.(go line by line to verify)

In my case the error is related to JAR file that i have included in my gradle file.Finally removing the jar file solved the problem.
