Install Tools without DS5

I'm attempting to use an Ubuntu 14.04 virtual private server to build the kernel, distro, and bootloader. 

 

When I try to install the 16.0 EDS I get an error because it is looking for xterm or a gnome-term. I don't need/have graphics. How can I install the toolchain without the DS5 IDE? 

 

Also, I'm a little confused. I'm assuming the baremetal tools are for the bootloaders. Which toolchain is used for Linux userspace code? 

 

Thanks, 

 

Kenny
