OpenADK is designed to run on Linux systems. But there is basic
support to run on MacOS X Maverick, Windows 7 with Cygwin, OpenBSD,
NetBSD and FreeBSD. Main development happens on Debian/GNU Linux 7
and MacOS X Maverick. The other host platforms are occasionally
OpenADK detects the host system and displays only the software
packages, which are known to be cross-compilable on the used host.
For example OpenJDK7 is only cross-compilable on a Linux host.
OpenADK needs some software to be already installed on the host
system; here is the list of the mandatory packages,
package names may vary between host systems.
* Build tools:
** +C compiler (gcc or clang)+
** `C++ compiler (g++ or clang++)`
** +GNU sed+
** +GNU make+
** +ncurses5 development files+
** +zlib development files+
** +libc development files+
There is a check for the required versions of these tools in advance,
though. To re-issue the checks, use +make prereq+.
For some packages there are some optional packages required. OpenADK
will check for the required tools in advance, when a specific package is
choosen. For example XBMC needs java installed on the host system.
OpenADK tries to avoid any optional required host tools and will try to
build them when needed.
For some host systems you can try to use ./scripts/adkprepare.sh to
install all required software. You need to run the script as root, it
will use the package management of your host to install the software.
