About the eLux SDK VM
The eLux SDK VM is a virtual machine equipped with Software Development Kit tools for eLux RP 6 (64-bit) that we provide upon request. The Linux system comes as a VMware image and runs on all VMware Server versions.
We provide a version of our eLux SDK VM which corresponds to the latest eLux version.1
|eLux SDK VM 3.12||contains the eLux Builder Kit for eLux RP 6 (64-bit)||as an .ova template
In your VMware environment, use the Deploy OVF Template option to install the machine from the template.
|epkg for eLux SDK VM 3.12||Command line tool for creating eLux RP 6 packages||Install the epkg packages on an Ubuntu system.|
The eLux-Builder-Kit is a development environment that allows skilled Linux developers or administrators to package any software as .epm and .fpm files. You can also compile your own source code and/or kernel drivers.
You can include any packages built with the eLux Builder Kit in an eLux image definition file (.idf) by using ELIAS.
Alternatively, use our epkg tool to build eLux packages from the command line. You can also automate the process of building packages by using epkg.
Using the eLux SDK requires knowledge of
- Network and communication hardware
- Administration of Linux operating systems
- Administration of eLux
- ELIAS features
The following system accounts are available:
root – elux
elux – elux
The home directory of the user elux is /home/elux.
- Log on with user elux, either in the VMware console or remote via ssh.
Alternatively, click Applications > Internet > X11VNC Server after you have logged on to the VMware console and use a VNCviewer to connect.
The machine is configured to use DHCP by default.
Creating eLux packages
When the system starts, the Mate Desktop is started automatically and you are logged in as user elux.
- Use the eLux Builder Kit. A good way to become familiar with the program is to build the packages of the example workspace. For further information, see Example packages.
Alternatively, the command line tool epkg is provided. For further information, see Command line tool.
