3.7.1. Installing Drivers on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Systems

To allow communication between the host computer and a development board, you must install the drivers for USB download cables, even for development kits with embedded Intel® FPGA Download Cable II circuits.
Configuring these options require administrator (root) privileges.
Note: The USB-Blaster is now the Intel® FPGA Download Cable. The USB-Blaster II is now the Intel® FPGA Download Cable II.
The Intel® Quartus® Prime software accesses the Intel® FPGA Download Cable or Intel® FPGA Download Cable II through the USB file system (usbfs). To program devices, change the permissions on the ports.
