logcat seems to be looping an error.

i tried to stop it to find an error but this is the only error i could actually catch. the logcat was going too fast.

03-21 05:08:43.440 1165-1165/? E/SurfaceFlinger﹕ hwcomposer module not found 03-21 05:08:43.440 1165-1165/? E/SurfaceFlinger﹕ ERROR: failed to open framebuffer (No such file or directory), aborting 03-21 05:08:43.440 1165-1165/?

Is your App running as you would expect or is it failing? If its running make sure the error is part of your app and not in the system.

the emulator wont actually start (the shiny android word wont come up the emulator is black) it just shows a blank screen. in the messages it shows zero errors, but in the logcat it is just continuously giving errors. im not sure if thats a system error or not.

Your code wont function properly without the emulator running. Either test on a real device or try to change some setting to get the emulator running first then run your app.
