Dear Clear Linux guys:
I am a new user of Clear Linux, I have installed and try to get familiar
with it, here is a question which I cannot find in the official web page:
What is the development environment for Clear Linux? Can we develop on one
normal machine like Ubuntu and run the program on Clear Linux target? Hope
to get professional guidance from you, thank you~~
Compiling on one Linux distribution and running on another is not supported,
by ANY Linux distribution. Even across major versions of the same distribution
is not often supported. You need check the policies for each distribution to
find out more.
This is about where you compile. You *can* develop on any distribution or OS,
so long as you compile the software on the distribution you want to run it on.
Clear Linux only supports software that was compiled on Clear Linux (that
doesn't mean it won't work: it just means it's not supported and you will have
to do the testing yourself).
Most applications compiled within the past year on Clear will run on current
Clear and if you find an issue, please let us know. Specifically, if you are
using libraries that tend to change SONAMEs frequently, like Boost, ICU and
LLVM, please let us know so we can discuss how the length of time we need to
provide compatibility libraries for.
