Problem with Android Emulator

this may be a problem with the android emulator, i am not sure.  i am very familliar with programing java but have no experience with programming android java applications.  so i started a new android project in intellij 10 ultimate and used the option to start with an already built out example program.  in the com.example package that was created there is a MyActivity class.

it is as follows


package com.example;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;

public class MyActivity extends Activity
{
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
    {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);
    }
}




so i run this and once the emulator loads it pops up an error (inside the emulator) that says "Sorry! The application Search (process com.android.quicksearchbox) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."   there is a red force close box beneath it that does not respond to any interaction.   this is on mac osx with the android sdk 2.2.   the run terminal reveals this:


Waiting for device.

Uploading file

 remote path: /data/local/tmp/com.example
Installing com.example.
DEVICE SHELL COMMAND: pm install -r "/data/local/tmp/com.example"
link_image[1995]: failed to link /system/bin/sh
CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE

Launching application: com.example/com.example.MyActivity.
DEVICE SHELL COMMAND: am start -n "com.example/com.example.MyActivity"
link_image[1995]: failed to link /system/bin/sh
CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE





i just want to start learning and cant even get the example program that intellij produces to run!   should i uninstall everything and try again?  i changed nothing from when i created the project.

thanks

Looks like your emulator image is corrupted, try to create the new emulator instance.
