This page will not have step-by-step instructions or command lines that you can cut and paste. If you need that, you're not ready.


You must be running Ubuntu 11.04 on an x86 32-bit machine. 64-bit may work. Don't ask about Windows or OSX.

You need to install all the pre-requisites for the WIDK.

You need to install the Official Linux SDK .
