Error opening AFC: insufficient privileges

Hello,

 

I have FPGA integrated into compute nodes. But, recently, I have note been able to use them. When I load the intel/2021.3.0 compiler the following messages are returned:

 

Error opening AFC: insufficient privileges
Error opening AFC: insufficient privileges
Error opening AFC: insufficient privileges
Error opening AFC: insufficient privileges
Error opening AFC: insufficient privileges

 

Or other times it returns:

 

Failed to configure device acl0:pac_ed00001|BSP_UNLOADED|PASSED
Failed to configure device acl0:pac_ed00001|BSP_UNLOADED|PASSED
Failed to configure device acl0:pac_ed00001|BSP_UNLOADED|PASSED
Failed to configure device acl0:pac_ed00001|BSP_UNLOADED|PASSED

 

What does it means? And how should I fix it?

Hi lcruz,


Sorry for late respond. May I know some additional information from you regarding the below:


  1. Which tools you are using? IOFS? oneAPI? OPAE?
  2. Are you using intel devcloud to compile the design?
  3. Can you share more details on the design or command used to compile the project?
  4. Are you running the command with root access?


Thanks.

Regards,

Aik Eu

Hi,

 

This sounds very similar to the issue I had https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-High-Level-Design/Configuring-for-non-root-user-access-without-... - this turned out to be that my user didn't have sufficient permissions to read/write from the raw devices.

 

So either running the tooling as root worked or (preferably) changing the device permissions might work.
