14.2 > Development > J-Link (5.02)

The J-Link software gives you the USB drivers needed for your system,
a number of utilities as well as a dynamically linkable library used
by most of the IDEs and debuggers using J-Link. Also included are
a number of sample setup scripts for devices needing one as well as

1. This SlackBuild is not sbopkg compatible because source download
requires licence acceptance (the link provided in .info points to
download site) and the source tarball name is different from the
resulting package name.

2. This SlackBuild repackages the official J-Link binary package.

3. The official binary package bundles libedit, which is also
available from so I decided to go with the one from and not with the bundled one. BTW, ldd shows that
libedit is not used at all.

4. The original udev rules change the device permissions to 0666.
This SlackBuild modifies the rules, so that the permissions are
0664 and the group is plugdev. Make sure to make yourself a member
of this group.

This requires: libedit
