May i know what is the difference between this 2 approach?

Hi @Raymond , the first one is to install SDK which includes GCC toolchain and lots of other softwares. These softwares are installed in the image. The second is only to install GCC toolchian. The SDK may help you to compile your application if some 3rd party libraries are required.

Hi @benjamin.tx , thank you very much for your clear explanation.
