3.2. Installing the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ Pro Edition
Unpack the downloaded tar file 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 software, and device support files simultaneously, perform the following tasks:
- Unpack the downloaded tar file into a temporary directory.
- Run the setup_pro.sh file to install the SDK with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software.
Important: Run this script with sudo privileges to ensure the Installable Client Driver (ICD) is setup successfully.
- Verify that INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT points to the current version of the software. Open a shell and then type echo $INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT at the command prompt.
Note:If the returned path does not point to the location of the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ installation, edit the INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT setting.
- The installer sets the environment variable INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT to point to the path of the software installation.
- If there are dependency issues, use the –nodeps option.
For instructions on modifying environment variable settings, refer to Setting the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ Pro Edition User Environment Variables.
After installing the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ , perform these steps to install the Eclipse plug-in:
- Navigate to the $INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT/ide_plugins directory.
- Execute the plugins_install.sh script.
- Follow the prompts to indicate where your installation of Eclipse is.
