App crashing after adding RecyclerView Library


#1

Hi,
My App crashes with the following piece of Log

It runs at the listing on Page 166, but fails when I run it at P172. I tried to identify the error and if I add the RecyclerView Library without changing a line of code from P166 the app crashes.
I am using the latest Android Studio and the library is com.android.support.recyclerview-v7.27.0.2

I see this was reported earlier and I missed it. Will try to do what it says.


#3

Fixed. I had to change the AppCompatActivity library from V26 to V27


#4

Good tip, this error was a show stopper for me.
