3.2. Installing the Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™

Install the Linux version of the Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ Standard Edition in a directory that you own.
  • 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.
Attention: If you install the software on a system that does not contain any C Shell Run Commands file (.cshrc) or Bash Run Commands file (.bashrc) in your directory, you must set the environment variables INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT and PATH manually. Alternatively, you may create the .cshrc and .bashrc files, and then append the environment variables to them. To ensure that the updates take effect, restart your terminal after you set the environment variables.

To install the Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ , perform the following tasks:

  1. At the command prompt, type the RPM command to install the downloaded RPM package.
    Note: The installation path must not contain any spaces (for example, /usr/intelfpga/<version>/aclrte_linux64).
    • To install the software using the Red Hat Package Manager (RPM), at the command prompt, type the rpm -i aocl-rte-<version>.x86_64.rpm command.

      The RPM installs the software in the default location (for example, opt/intelfpga/aclrte-linux64).

    • To install the software in the default location with verbose progress reporting, type rpm -ivh aocl-rte-<version>.x86_64.rpm
    • To install the software in an alternate directory that you own (that is, not a system directory), type rpm -i --prefix <rte_destination_directory> aocl-rte-<version>.x86_64.rpm
  2. 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 RTE for OpenCL™ installation , edit the INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT setting.
