To understand what to download, please read the information about SDK packages first. Choose what to download by supported Operating System.

The SDK 3.0 packages are provided as ISO images. Download the installer RPM and ISO image(s) you need and follow the install instructions in the IBM SDK for Multicore Acceleration V3.0 Installation Guide. The ISO image contains IBM-owned code and documentation. The GPL and LGPL portions of the SDK are automatically downloaded from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) Web site during install.

The document library is available online or in the /opt/cell/sdk/docs subdirectory of an installed SDK. If you cannot find answers in the document library, please post your question in the Cell/B.E. forum.
