<listitem><para><emphasis>Build Tools and Build System:</emphasis>
The extensible SDK installer performs additional tasks as
compared to the standard SDK installer.
- The extensible SDK installer extracts build tools specific
to the SDK and the installer also prepares the internal build
system within the SDK.
+ You can find pre-built extensible SDK installers in the same
+ <ulink url=';/toolchain/'>toolchain</ulink>
+ location as the pre-built standard SDK installers.
+ For extensible SDK installers, the
+ <filename>ext</filename> string is part of the name.
+ Here is an example:
+ <literallayout class='monospaced'>
+ poky-glibc-x86_64-core-image-sato-core2-64-toolchain-ext-&DISTRO;.sh
+ </literallayout>
+ <note>
+ As an alternative to downloading an SDK, you can build the toolchain
+ installer.
+ For information on building the installer, see the
+ "<link linkend='sdk-building-an-sdk-installer'>Building an SDK Installer</link>"
+ section.
+ Another helpful resource for building an installer is the
+ <ulink url=''>Cookbook guide to Making an Eclipse Debug Capable Image</ulink>
+ wiki page.
