4.2. Ubuntu: Installing the OPAE Framework from Prebuilt Binaries (deb)

Before you can install and build the OPAE software, you must install the required packages by running the following two commands:
sudo apt-get -f install cmake dkms libjson-c3 uuid-dev libhwloc-dev\
 python-pip libjson-c-dev libhwloc-dev linux-headers-$(uname -r) libtbb-dev
sudo pip install intelhex
Complete the following steps to install the OPAE framework:
  1. Remove any previous version of the OPAE framework.
    sudo apt-get remove opae*
    sudo apt-get remove python-opae.admin
    sudo apt-get remove python3-opae.pac-sign
  2. Change to the OPAE installation software directory.
  3. Install the latest OPAE driver and framework.
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    Note: If dpkg fails due to missing dependencies, please run the following command to resolve:
    sudo apt-get install -f
  4. Check the Linux kernel installation.
    lsmod | grep fpga

    Sample Output:

    intel_fpga_pac_iopll    16384  0
    intel_fpga_pac_hssi    24576  0
    intel_fpga_fme         90112  0
    intel_fpga_afu         36864  0
    intel_fpga_pci         28672  2 intel_fpga_fme,intel_fpga_afu
    fpga_mgr_mod           16384  1 intel_fpga_fme
    ifpga_sec_mgr          16384  2 intel_max10,intel_fpga_fme
  5. After completing the OPAE installation, the binaries and libraries are available in the following directories:
    Directory OPAE Driver Package Content



    OPAE tool binaries. For a full listing of the tools and their purpose, refer to the OPAE FPGA TOOLS section on the Open Programmable Acceleration Engine web page.
    /usr/include opae-devel* The header files required for linking host applications.



    The OPAE shared object libraries.
  6. Verify deb packages installation:
    dpkg -l | grep opae
