The SDK is indeed built for 64 bit systems. It could be built for a
32-bit host, although I don't think there has been that much demand
for it.
I recently hit a case when I needed to run Zephyr SDK on 32-bit system
and of course, it was a rather unpleasant surprise to remember that I
can't. I ended up installing 64-bit kernel and corresponding multilib
support, to be able to run existing 32-bit userspace, but also the SDK.
I googled up how to do that, I believe it was some Stack Exchange site,
likely .

So, it was good luck that such opportunity exists at all and I could
use it. But for all other cases, I'd personally vote to turn SDK back
to 32 bit, as the most compatible one.

Dear All

I got a trouble when installing zephyr SDK on Ubuntu 16.04.2
desktop i386 (32 bit)
I followed the instructions exactly on page https://www.
The Requirements and Dependencies are installed correctly.
The message is:

I checked the default folder. Only

info-zephyr-sdk-0.9.1(empty folder)

existed there.

Is there anyone can help me. Is this SDK only for 64bit system?
