We believe that you can use any Linux distribution to build OP-TEE, but as maintainers of OP-TEE we are mainly using Ubuntu-based distributions and to be able to build and run OP-TEE there are a few packages that needs to be available.

First enable installation of i386 architecture packages and update the package managers database.

$ sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
$ sudo apt-get update

Install the following packages regardless of what target you will use in the end.

$ sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot autoconf \
        automake bc bison build-essential ccache codespell \
        cscope curl device-tree-compiler expect flex ftp-upload gdisk iasl \
        libattr1-dev libcap-dev libcap-ng-dev \
        libfdt-dev libftdi-dev libglib2.0-dev libgmp-dev libhidapi-dev \
        libmpc-dev libncurses5-dev libpixman-1-dev libssl-dev libtool make \
        mtools netcat ninja-build python-crypto python3-crypto python-pyelftools \
        python3-pycryptodome python3-pyelftools python-serial python3-serial \
        rsync unzip uuid-dev xdg-utils xterm xz-utils zlib1g-dev

For older versions, you might need to pull pycryptodome as a pip package:

$ python3 -m pip install --user pycryptodome

For <= ubuntu 18.04 distribution, you might need to remove python3-pycryptodome:

$ sudo apt-get remove python3-pycryptodome
