## Build
If you want to build PbDbFixer yourself, you have to have the cross compiler for ARM CPUs installed. On Arch Linux, the AUR package `arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc75-linaro-bin` does the job. Don't forget to tell `cargo` which compiler/linker it has to invoke. In my case, I had to edit `~/.cargo/config`:
