Hello World opencl design example for Arria 10

I have been trying to compile hello_world example for Arria 10 device. For that I have downloaded Quartus Prime Pro and OpenCL SDK on my Centos but I am getting error while compiling the example. a10gx is listed in aoc --list-boards.  

I am using following command to compile hello_world example. 

 

--- Quote Start ---  

aoc device/hello_world.cl -o bin/hello_world.aocx --report --board a10gx 

--- Quote End ---  

 

 

I am getting following error.

[nilesh.vora@AOCLDev hello_world]$ aoc device/hello_world.cl -o bin/hello_world.aocx --report --board a10gx -v 

aoc: Environment checks are completed successfully. 

You are now compiling the full flow!!

Strange part is that log file does not indicate any error. See attached log file. 

 

Please look at the version of OpenCL and Quartus.

You seem to have some issue in your environmental variables. The output of "quartus_map --version" is pointing to Quartus Prime Standard Edition, while for Arria 10 you should use the Pro Edition. The info in your log, however, is pointing to Quartus Prime Pro Edition v16.1.0, which should be updated to v16.1.2. Update your environmental variables so that both AOC and Quartus point to the Pro Edition, and make sure they are both updated to v16.1.2, then retry the compilation. If it still didn't work, please post the "quartus_sh_compile.log" file.

I have updated Quartus Prime Pro to 16.1.2. See the console output below.

But I am getting the same error. There is no error in log file. Is there any other things that I am missing. I just downloaded hello_world example from design examples and started compiling it on CentOS. See the attached log file. I still have Quartus standard 16.1.0 installed on other directory but I have updated PATHs to the Prime pro 16.1.2 for compilation of OpenCL example for Arria 10.

I do not see anything out of the ordinary in the logs, it is just randomly failing for no reason. You can try creating an account on Altera.com and opening a support request and asking Altera directly. 

 

P.S. Make sure you are using a supported OS.
