BSP: Operating system type ucosii not available

Trying to build a board support package for a nios v using Quartus 22.4.  The documentation indicates FreeRTOS or uCOS types should be available, but when I run niosv-bsp with type=ucosii I get a "BSP type 'ucosii' is not valid" error:

The same problem occurs using the BSP Editor in Platform designer:  only the "Altera HAL" type operating system is available in the drop down menu:

This screenshot from a tutorial video shows multiple options available for operating system type:

What might be causing this limitation in my setup, and how do I generate a BSP with OS type=ucosii?

 

Thank you,

BB_NGC

Hi,


Are you using the Quartus 22.4 Pro version? Which board device did you target it to in Quartus? Also which OS environment did you use for your machine on this? Linux or Windows?

Was using Quartus Pro Prime 22.4 targeting and Agilex 7.  Using Linux environment.

 

Have since upgraded to Quartus Pro Prime 23.2.  I'm now seeing FreeRTOS as an option but still no ucosii.

Hi,


I may have missed this info, which Nios V cores did you used again? Is it Nios V/g Nios V/m etc..

Hi,


I try all the possible scenario, but on my side I could see them. Could you try with the example design below?:

Hi,


Once you opened it in Quartus, just straight try to compile and check for the BSP settings in Platform Designer, and let me know.

Hi,


This might be due to this SOPC_KIT_NIOS2


Try running the whole Quartus in Nios V Command Shell or, you can set the SOPC_KIT_NIOS2:
