3.4. Installing the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™
Unpack the downloaded tar file and and run the installation files to install all the software and files.
- You must have sudo or root privileges.
- You must install the Linux OS kernel source and headers (for example, kernel-devel.x86_64 and kernel-headers.x86_64), and the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) (gcc.x86_64).
- If you are installing a package that includes Intel Code Builder, you must have Java SE 1.8.71 or later installed to run Intel Code Builder. If you have an earlier version of Java SE installed, you can still complete the installation of Intel Code Builder. However, you must meet the Java version prerequisite to run Intel Code Builder.
To install the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ , Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition software, and device support files simultaneously, perform the following tasks:
- Unpack the downloaded tar file into a temporary directory.
- Run the setup.sh file to install the SDK with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition software.
Note: The installer sets the environment variable INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT to point to the path of the software installation.
- Verify that INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT points to the current version of the software. Open a shell and then type echo $INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT at the command prompt.
If the returned path does not point to the location of the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ installation , edit the INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT setting.
