  1. Kotlin-related errors:
    • “Type mismatch” error: This occurs when you try to assign a value of one type to a variable of another incompatible type. Make sure the types match or perform appropriate type conversions.
    • “Null pointer exception” (NPE): This error indicates that you’re trying to access or call a method on a null object reference. Ensure that the object is properly initialized before accessing its properties or methods.
    • “Unresolved reference” error: This typically means that you’re referring to a variable, function, or class that hasn’t been declared or imported. Check for typos in the name or ensure the necessary imports are present.
  2. Emulator-related errors:
    • “Emulator: emulator: ERROR: GPU emulation is disabled”: This error occurs when the emulator cannot enable GPU acceleration. Ensure that your system’s graphics drivers are up to date and that your computer’s hardware supports GPU acceleration.
    • “Emulator: Process finished with exit code X”: This error message indicates that the emulator terminated unexpectedly with a specific exit code. The exit code can provide more information about the cause of the error. Look for additional error messages or logs to identify the underlying issue.
