I Can't install FPGA Drivers for the Arria 10 onto my Ubuntu 20.04

I have an Arria 10 acceleration board. Here is the documentation:

I have a server running Ubuntu 20.04. Following the installation steps in the manual (linked) does NOT work, as it relies on packages that don't exist in Ubuntu 20.04 (eg libjson0), and generally, the manual seems to link to an olde, deprecated version of OPAE

I think the solution might be to install a newer version of the OPAE, as described here:
https://opae.github.io/1.0.2/docs/fpga_api/quick_start/readme.html

However, following the links from this ReadMe to github, I can't even find the .deb version of the driver for me to download. I know the main OS is RHEL, but I would really like to be able to use the FPGA in the OS I'm more used to, and at the same time as apps that rely on Ubuntu.

What do I do? Any help is appreciated.

Hi atbolsh,


I think the Ubuntu 20.4 may not support the OPAE as mentioned in the System compatibility section in the link as below:

https://opae.github.io/1.2.0/docs/install_guide/installation_guide.html

It mentioned only tested on Ubuntu 16.04


Thanks.
