aocl program problem on Mustang-F100-A10




I'm trying to run openvino samples on Mustang-F100-A10 under Ubuntu 16.04.5.

Im following this guide:

Evertything works fine on CPU, but doesn't work when it comes to running on FPGA.

My device is 01:00.0 Processing accelerators: Altera Corporation Device 2494 (rev 01)

My driver is aclpci_a10_1150_sg1_drv 

Driver information:

# modinfo aclpci_a10_1150_sg1_drv
filename:       /lib/modules/4.15.0-45-generic/misc/aclpci_a10_1150_sg1_drv.ko
license:        GPL
description:    Driver for Intel(R) OpenCL Acceleration Boards
author:         Dmitry Denisenko
srcversion:     39FF6377F73121FC2A3C88F
alias:          pci:v00001172d*sv00001172sd0000A1A1bc12sc*i01*
retpoline:      Y

vermagic:       4.15.0-45-generic SMP mod_unload

aocl diagnose runs well:

But when I try to program memory via pcie it compains it can't write:

Could you please point me what I am doing wrong?

I tried reinstalling everything including driver, but no luck.

Solved the problem by installing openvino SDK version 2018.4 instead of 2018.5.1
