The RTE installation package for Intel® SoC FPGAs with 32-bit ARM® processor is available in tar format. To install the software, you must install it in a directory that you own, and set all the necessary environment variables.
  1. Create an RTE directory on the board's file system by typing the mkdir <rte_destination_directory> command.
  2. Move the downloaded installation package intel-fpga-opencl-pro-rte-32bit-arm.tgz to the RTE directory by typing the mvintel-fpga-opencl-pro-rte-32bit-arm.tgz <rte_destination_directory> command.
  3. Type cd <rte_destination_directory> to navigate to the RTE directory.
  4. To unpack the tarball, type tar -xzvf intel-fpga-opencl-pro-rte-32bit-arm.tgz at the command prompt.
  5. Transfer the aclsoc_drv.ko file you built on your development machine into the <rte_destination_directory>/board/a10soc/driver directory on the SoC FPGA board.
  6. Set the environment variables, as shown below.
    Intel recommends that you consolidate the settings of the environment variables into a file called Then, run the command source ./ to load all the environment variables and the OpenCL™ Linux kernel driver simultaneously.
    export INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT=<rte_destination_directory>
    insmod $INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/board/c5soc/driver/aclsoc_drv.ko
