3.4.2. Installing the Intel Acceleration Stack Development Package on the Host Machine

  1. Extract the runtime archive file:
    tar xvf *dev_installer.tar.gz
  2. Change to the installation directory.
    cd *dev_installer
  3. This step only applies to RHEL 7.6 (skip this step if you are using Ubuntu 18.04). Install extra packages for Enterprise Linux(EPEL):
    sudo yum install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release\
    -latest-7.noarch.rpm
    sudo subscription-manager repos --enable "rhel-*-optional-rpms"\ 
    --enable "rhel-*-extras-rpms"
  4. Run setup.sh.
    ./setup.sh
  5. If you receive a prompt with the message: Intel® Acceleration Stack Runtime Package is only supported on RHEL 7.6.* kernel 3.10.* or Ubuntu 18.04.* kernel 4.15.* , then you are currently using an unsupported operating system/kernel combination.

    Next, a prompt appears with the following question: Do you want to continue to install the software? Answering Yes allows the setup script to attempt to install OPAE onto this unsupported operating and kernel version.

    For complete operating system support information, refer to System Requirements .

  6. Next, a prompt appears with the following question: Do you wish to install the OPAE?
    Option Description
    Select Yes If you have admin and network access.
    Select No If you do not have admin and network access. After the installation, follow the manual steps listed in the Installing the OPAE Software Package section.
  7. Next, a prompt appears with the following question: Do you wish to install OPAE PACsign package?
    Option Description
    Answer Yes If you require the use of PACSign to sign bitstreams prior to loading on an Intel® FPGA PAC. Admin and network access are required.
    Answer No If you do not have admin and network access. After the installation, follow the manual steps listed in the Installing the OPAE PACSign section.
  8. Accept the license.
  9. When you receive an installation directory prompt for the Intel® PAC with Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA release package, you can specify an install directory. Otherwise, the installer uses the default directory at /home/<username>/inteldevstack.
  10. When you receive an installation directory prompt for the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition release package, you can specify an install directory. Otherwise, the installer uses the default directory at /opt/intelFPGA_pro/quartus_19.2.0b57.
    Next, a prompt appears with the following: Warning: Elevated permissions are required to write to the /opt directory. Do you want to proceed? Answer Yes.
    Note: If there is not enough available storage under /opt for the OpenCL RTE, the installer fails and halts execution.
  11. Source the initialization script after installation completes to set the required environment variables.
    source /home/<username>/inteldevstack/init_env.sh
    Note: To avoid having to setup the environment variables after every reboot, you can save this command to your shell initialization script.
