Detected multiple Kotlin daemon sessions at build/kotlin/sessions


When building apk with ./gradlew assembleRelease under Android for React Native 0.70.1/gradle 7.3.3/7.4.2/7.5.1/Android Studio 2021.3.1/macOS Monterey, it failed with error. The app runs fine (npx react-native run-android) on Android simulator:

> Task :rn-alioss:verifyReleaseResources FAILED
w: Detected multiple Kotlin daemon sessions at build/kotlin/sessions

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':rn-alioss:verifyReleaseResources'.
> A failure occurred while executing$Action
   > Android resource linking failed
     ERROR:/Users/macair/Documents/code/js/xyz_app6/node_modules/rn-alioss/android/build/intermediates/merged_res/release/values/values.xml:2723: AAPT: error: resource android:attr/lStar not found.

Here is the portion in values.xml mentioned in the error:

<declare-styleable name="ColorStateListItem">
    <attr name="android:color"/>
    <attr format="float" name="alpha"/>
    <attr name="android:alpha"/>
    <attr format="float" name="lStar"/>
    <attr name="android:lStar"/>. //<<==line# 2723 mentioned in error above

It is a common error related to gradle but solutions posted were not working in my case. What I did was to downgrade gradle from 7.5.1 to 7.4.2 with:

./gradlew wrapper --gradle-version 7.4.2 --distribution-type=all

Then downgrade to 7.3.3 and the error remains the same. Deleting android/.gradle and ./gradlew clean didn’t help. Adding org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx4g -XX:MaxPermSize=2048m ,,,, to /android/ causing error of MaxPerSize unrecognized.


This feature "android:lStar" requires compileSdk 31.

So one possible solution is upgrade the compileSdkVersion to 31.

If you do not want this, maybe your project or some dependencies has androidx.core:core-ktx:+, which dosno‘t limit the version or has 1.7 and above. So change it in your build.gradle :

configurations.all {
    resolutionStrategy {
        force 'androidx.core:core:1.6.0'
        force 'androidx.core:core-ktx:1.6.0'

Hope this can help you!
