Hello, i am very thankful for everyone who can help me!I have to run OpenCL programs on the DE-SOC1-Board, but every documentation write, that I will need the OpenCL Linux Distribution Image. I have already Ubuntu configured on the DE1-SOC-Board with some software running on it. Is it possible to run OpenCL FPGA programs on the board with ubuntu? If its possible i would also do the programming/building/compiling and running on the board with the INTEL FPGA RTE Linux ARM32 Software. Is that working? My time for the project is running away ): Thank you !
I would like to do the same with a different SoC board. Please post your solution if you have one.Preliminary research I found this document, that may hold some answers. https://www.altera.com/en_us/pdfs/literature/hb/opencl-sdk/aocl_rte_getting_started.pdf The following section may be what you need? 4.1.5 Installing the Intel FPGA RTE for OpenCL onto the SoC FPGA Board
Hi,It would be good if you could go through this tutorials also as help to give more picture. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucdd6jigzjc&list=plqfr0we42khfw3rf-sexs3jxubhyoz_if Regards, CloseCL (This message was posted on behalf of Intel Corporation)
Thanks for the tutorial link, but I think you missed the question being asked. As far as I am aware the out-of-box procedure only provides a basic Linux version with BusyBox v1.20.2 for the basic commands, but has no other development tools.Q "Is it possible to run OpenCL FPGA programs on the board with ubuntu?" I think that Altera should supply a well known Linux image that can be setup in minimum time. The lack of a usable image is as a major impediment to newbies wanting to start using OpenCL on Altera FPGA boards. I am currently trying to set up a Debian Linux distro for running on a DE0-nano-SoC. It is taking some time. It would be good if Altera could supply a Ubuntu or Debian image with OpenCL setup ready to use.
