1 SUSE Linux Enterprise Software Development Kit

The SUSE Linux Enterprise Software Development Kit (SDK) can be used for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop.

Several packages that are either only on SLES or only on SLED, but needed for the SDK, have been added to the SDK for convenience. The presence of those packages on the SDK does not indicate any support or maintenance entitlement. If you only have a support contract for SLED you are not automatically entitled to support for SLES packages on the SDK and vice versa.

As the SDK is targeting SLES and SLED, it may contain packages which are only useful and can only be installed in combination with one of SLES and SLED, not with both. This is a feature not a bug.

You should be able to re-build any package on SLES or SLED with the SDK media.

If you are missing packages on the media, file a bug in the SUSE Bugzilla system ( You may also find additional unsupported packages on openSUSE (


For technical reasons, not all SDK packages are available on all SLES hardware architectures.

The SDK does not come with a maintenance or support entitlement. From time to time, SUSE may release package updates and security fixes online.

If you add the SDK during installation, online update repositories for the SDK are added when you register your product.

If you have added the SDK later, run the SUSE Customer Center Configuration in YaST. This will add the SDK update sources to your configuration. You will not have to re-enter your registration data for this.
