Installing AGL SDKs

To build your AGL services or AGL applications using XDS you must install a SDK matching the target/board you want to use. A SDK is a package that includes all tools you need to cross-build and cross-debug your service/application.

You can generate the AGL SDK for the board you want to use or you can download a pre-packaged AGL SDK.

Installing SDK cross-toolchain

xds-server uses SDK cross-toolchain installed into directory pointed by sdkRootDir setting (see xds-server configuration chapter for more details).

For now, you can only install SDK using a bash script but in a near future you will be able to manage SDKs using XDS Dashboard.

So to install a SDK, use provided install-agl-sdks script:

# Optional - Log into the container (only necessary when xds-server is running within a docker container)
seb@laptop ~$ ssh -p 2222 devel@localhost

# For example, Install ARM64 SDK (automatic download)
devel@docker ~$ sudo /opt/AGL/xds/server/xds-utils/install-agl-sdks.sh --arch aarch64

You may also want to install an SDK that you built manually (see Part 1 - SDK-compilation-installation)

# Optional - Log into the container (only necessary when xds-server is running within a docker container)
seb@laptop ~$ ssh -p 2222 devel@localhost

# Install Intel corei7-64 SDK (using an SDK tarball that has been built or downloaded manually)
devel@docker ~$ sudo /opt/AGL/xds/server/xds-utils/install-agl-sdks.sh --arch corei7-64 --file /tmp/poky-agl-glibc-x86_64-agl-demo-platform-crosssdk-corei7-64-toolchain-
