What to do to be able to get the NetFPGA running

  • State as of 2019-05-10.
  • With Ubuntu 19.04
  • Vivado 2018.3
  • SDNET 2018.2

There are a variety of hard coded scripts flying around in the Internet, so try to stick to the proposed paths below.

Various things are likely to fail on your path, so take a good bag of good nerves.

Get Vivado, SDNET

  • Go xilinx.com
  • Create an account
  • Browse/dig through the website until you find a HUGE sdnet download
  • Browse/dig through the website until you find a REALLY HUGE vivado download

Install SDNnet

  • Unpack the file, run xsetup, put stuff below /opt/Xilinx

Install Vivado

  • Install libtinfo5 manually (if you don't, the vivado install hangs forever)
  • Unpack the file, run xsetup, put stuff below /opt/Xilinx

Install NetPFGA support

mkdir -p ~/projects
cd ~/projects
git clone git@github.com:NetFPGA/P4-NetFPGA-live.git

Do NOT trust manuals to checkout a specific version, especially not v1.2.0, it is broken with vivado 2018.3. Also, DO NOT trust this manual, it might already be outdated at the time reading.
