The official versions of the Tizen 1.0 SDK currently run only on Ubuntu 10.04/10.10/11.04/11.10 32-bit and Windows XP SP3/7 32-bit. Several developers, during the recently concluded developer conference, were asking for a 64-bit version. While there were hints that it can be done on Ubuntu, there has not been any detailed instructions on how to do it until now.

After a lot of trial and error, Tomi Ollila has managed to install the Tizen 1.0 SDK on a 64-bit Fedora 16. The detailed step-by-step instructions can be found at Nixu Open’s blog. On the same blog entry, Michael Przybilski has commented that changing a few items in the instructions will let you install the SDK to Ubuntu 12.04 – Precise Pangolin, on top of 64 bit Debian / Wheezy.

If you are wondering how the recently released Tizen 1.0 Larkspur looks like, here’s a video that BadaHub (a Samsung Bada enthusiast site) just posted. The video basically shows swipe scrolling on the Tizen smartphone interface — it’s quite laggy as it is being run on the SDK emulator. It also shows some screens like the date and time setting, display setting, memory, NFC, browser, memo, music, dialer, swipe to unlock UI, volume control, and the on-screen keyboard.
