I install XDK at openSuse 42.1 and not work,
Searching the problem I found 2 problems... mmm one library problem and one intentional policy at script.
First problem: the shortcut to start the IDE is to xdk.sh and these script have in the last of line /dev/null 2>&1, so not appear error neither running from console. I need delete these final sentence to debug
Second Problem: the problem at opensuse is about simbolic link libudev.so.0 -> /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.1 you need delete these link and recreate to correct path, so, you need go to xdk directory, for default at ~/intel/XDK>
ln -s /usr/lib64/libudev.so.1 libudev.so.0
Ready, fix and working at OpenSuse 42.1
Thanks and good job!!
