Error Installing DE10 Standard to OpenCL platform

Hi folks,

I bought a DE10-Standard board for an OpenCL project.

In Terasic manual is written that I should copy the BSP(Board Support Package) in board folder of Intel FPGA SDK for OpenCL.

So, I copied it to "C:\intelFPGA\18.0\hld\board\de10_standard".

Now, performing the command to install my board I got the follow error:

# C:\intelFPGA\18.0> aoc.exe -list-boards
Board list:
  de10_standard_sharedonly
     Board Package: C:\intelFPGA\18.0\hld\board\de10_standard

# C:\intelFPGA\18.0> aocl.exe install C:\intelFPGA\18.0\hld\board\de10_standard
--------------------------------------------------------------------
No board installation routine supplied.
Please consult your board manufacturer's documentation or support
team for information on how to properly install your board.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

I am in contact with Terasic support, but they have not helped me much.

Please, if anybody knows anything about this error that can be helpful, let me know.

Best regards,

Mauricio Penteado.

Hi Mauricio,

Please, try Linux system (for example Ununtu 16.4). I guess, I will not have license problems.

Hi folks,

I received a response from terasic, they explained that the aocl install command is not required to work with the de10-standard card.

Unfortunately, I am still stuck, unable to compile any OpenCL kernel examples.
I was trying to install the de10-standard (via aocl install), hoping to have any kernel examples compiled on my side.
I have left the command below running for 13 hours with no results:

        aoc device / vector_add.cl -o bin / vector_add.aocx -board = de10_standard_sharedonly -v -report

I never received a license error message, but maybe my problem is related to it.

I read on some forums that "an OpenCL license is no longer required for SDK v17.1 or later". Therefore, I am trying to use it without any license.

Can you confirm that my problems are really linked to license files?

In fact, I cannot understand how to buy a license file for this type of development. Please, can you tell me what is the required license file expected in my situation?

Please let me know if you have any other suggestions to try on my side.

Best regards,

Hi GRN,

 

Many thanks for your attention.

I will do some tries using Ubuntu and Centos. Hopefully it will work.

I recommend you install Linux kernel 4.4, sources and headers for this kernel.

Using an instance of CentOS 7, I have my hello_world project generating the hardware without problems.
