as local user

git clone -b lx106 git:// 
cd crosstool-NG
./bootstrap && ./configure --prefix=`pwd` && make && make install
./ct-ng xtensa-lx106-elf
./ct-ng build

Setting up the SDK

sudo cp esptool/esptool /usr/bin

cd esp_sources
  • copy the example at from SDK
cp -R /opt/Espressif/ESP8266_SDK/examples/at at
cd at 
  • get the make file
wget -O Makefile
