Installing the SDK

The SDK file is not executable by default. This needs to be changed with chmod. If you downloaded the SDK from the internet, the <SDK location> is typically ~/Downloads.

cd <SDK location>
chmod +x pelux-glibc-x86_64-<image-name>-<arch>-toolchain-<version>.sh

It is a self extracting shell script which can be executed. This will start an interactive program which first asks where to install the SDK. The easiest way is to install it in your home directory in it’s own directory, like ~/sdk, instead of the default which is /opt. /opt is most probably not prepared for your user to install anything into.
