Setup your machine for the ESP tutorial
The setup consists in performing the following steps from the ESP How to: setup guide:
- Software packets
- Install the packets for your OS (CentOS 7, Ubuntu 18.04, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.8) listed in the Software packets section of the How to: setup guide under the labels “Miscellaneous”, “Python”, “Perl”, “CAD tools and SW toolchains dependencies”.
- Clone the ESP repository
- Follow the instructions in the ESP repository section of the How to: setup guide.
- Software toolchain
- Install both Leon3 and RISC-V toolchains by following the instructions in the Software toolchain section of the How to: setup guide.
- Environment variables
In the terminal window where you use ESP set the environment variables by following the instructions in the Environment variables section of the How to: setup guide. You only need the variables for RISC-V and Leon3. You should also set the
XILINX_VIVADOto any value.
export XILINX_VIVADO=/ # RISC-V # e.g. <riscv_path> = /opt/riscv export RISCV=<riscv_path> export PATH=$PATH:<riscv_path>/bin # Leon3 # e.g. <leon3_path> = /opt/leon export PATH=$PATH:<leon3_path>/bin export PATH=$PATH:<leon3_path>/mklinuximg export PATH=$PATH:<leon3_path>/sparc-elf/bin
ESP is supported on the following OS distributions: CentOS 7, Ubuntu 18.04, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.8. Other Linux distributions could work too, but they may require additional setup effort.
