Our customer's PC have 96GB DRAM, when he compiles a BSP(DE10_Pro_OpenCL_BSP_18.1.1.tar.gz, provided byTerasic), it reports: (please see the log information at the end of this text). He did try to set the PC swap memory and re-compile the demos, no difference
! However, we(Terasic) try several times without meeting this issue. Please advice!
The OS is CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708, and the software is Quartus II 18.1.1, and he did installed the patch indicated in https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/knowledge-base/embedd....
The rest I will ask the customer and reply you soon.
The message from the customer:
The stock s10_ref w/ would s10gx has no compile errors:
aoc device/vector_add.cl -o bin/vector_add.aocx -board=s10gx
However, it only generates these files in bin/ :
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 55584 May 6 17:15 host
drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 4096 May 6 17:20 vector_add
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15200 May 6 16:37 vector_add.aoco
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12372 May 6 16:37 vector_add.aocr
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12372 May 6 16:37 vector_add.aocx.tmp
Why is there no vector_add.aocx ??
swap makes no sense anyhow, the fitter uses 25% of the memory for a
total of 24GB (incl. all processes) w/ nearly 18GB free. Swap remains
unused (0% used).
I asked the customer to use this command instead: aoc -bsp-flow=flat vector_add.cl -o bin/vector_add.aocx -baord=s10_gh2e2 -v, and it works,
"Could you check w/ your engineer
1) which aoc flags and
2) which Linux distribution+version he was using?(We terasic use Centos 7.3.1611 Quartus 126.96.36.1993 )
That will also help me.
It still looks like a bug, but if there's a work-around, then OK.
The problem I might get is when "flat" mode does not work, I will need
the non-flat mode, which seems broken.
And I need this under Linux due to HPC and ML kernel execution under
OpenCL. Windows is not an option.
