Installing Intel XDK on Debian Wheezy (64-bit)

XDK Installation on Debian Wheezy (64-bit)

After installing the XDK, you may realize that it will NOT start. This is due to libc issues with the Node-webkit version installed along with the XDK. To solve this issue, we need to install a compatible version (easy way) or build the lastest node-webkit on our machine.

I only know of the easy way :-). So here it is.

Easy Way

  1. Install the XDK, if you have NOT. Take note of where it is installed. Most probably it will be:
    • /opt/intel
    • ~/intel
  • Download a compatible node-webkit version like this one
  • Unpack the downloaded version using tar.
  • Copy everything unpacked in the newly created directory.
  • Now go to the directory where XDK is installed. Look for the bin directory. It is XDK/bin
  • Paste to replace the contents in this bin directory

It should now work. 👍

If you know how to do it the hard way, please comment it out so I could add it here.

Sorry guys! It worked on mine. But I changed OS to Elementary. So I can't really work on this anymore!
