What we learn in this chapter? Install, play and fun with Debian distro ...

Host Enviroment

We suggest use Debian 9.02 (64 bits) in your host, you can download it from our server using this link or directly from debian website. You can install it in a Virtual Machine enviroment using any Virtualization software or directly in your PC.

After install is recommended update the package list with:

sudo apt-get update

Install Development packages

Now is time to install some packages if you want to build your own distribution.

GCC, G++, libc Cross Compiler

You can install the cross compiler if you want to build u-boot, linux kernel or applications using your host PC and compile for IGEP board as target.

sudo apt-get install gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi gcc-arm-linux-gnueabihf g++-arm-linux-gnueabi g++-arm-linux-gnueabihf libc6-armel-cross libc6-armhf-cross libc6-dev-armhf-cross libc6-dev-armel-cross crossbuild-essential-armel crossbuild-essential-armhf

Build Ubuntu packages

if you're idea is build ubuntu packages then you need install other packages

sudo apt-get install devscripts dh-make quilt autogen autoconf dh-autoreconf dh-buildinfo dh-make pkg-config


A pbuilder environment is a chrooted environment which can have a different distroseries or architecture than your host system.

sudo apt-get install pbuilder
