Thanks. I've tried several sdk targets probably not getting the right
one. I went right for 33 as it's the android version I use, should I
go with another? Which do you use if any? I do have my
ANDROID_SDK_PATH environment set. Here's that configuration:

# set PATH so it includes user's private rockbox-master/bin if it exists
if [ -d "$HOME/rockbox-master/bin" ] ; then

export RBDEV_PREFIX=$HOME/rockbox-master
export RBDEV_BUILD=$HOME/rockbox-build
export RBDEV_DOWNLOAD=$HOME/rbdev-dl
export ANDROID_HOME=$HOME/android
export PATH=$ANDROID_HOME/cmdline-tools/tools/bin:$PATH
export PATH=$ANDROID_HOME/emulator:$PATH
export PATH=$ANDROID_HOME/platform-tools:$PATH
export ANDROID_SDK_PATH=$HOME/android/

In sdkmanager I'm not seeing ndk 10e am I correct I have to grab that
separate and reconfigure this?

Can you send me an sdkmanager --list I'd like to compare your installs to mine?
