4.2. Operating System Prerequisites
- Red Hat* Enterprise Linux* 8.7
- Ubuntu* 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS
Ubuntu* 20.04 LTS is supported natively and in a Windows* Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2) environment.
In a WSL 2 environment, only the Intel® FPGA AI Suite compiler and IP generation tools are supported.
The PCIe-based design examples require specific versions operating systems. This is required only to use the specific PCIe example design listed. For the operating system requirements for the PCIe-based design examples, refer to the following table:
|Design Example||Operating System Requirement|
|PCIe-based design example for Intel® Arria® 10 devices||Ubuntu* 18.04.1|
|PCIe-based design example for Intel Agilex® 7 devices||Ubuntu* 20.04.5|
