GeMRTOS design flow can be readily specified using command line tools. The Cygwin environment was used in earlier versions of Quartus Prime to carry out these commands. Versions of Quartus Prime that are higher than version 22.0 use the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) command-line environment. The procedures necessary to install Quartus Prime v22.0 and WSL for GeMRTOS design flow for Windows 10-64bits are given:
1) Download and install Quartus Prime with Questa – Intel Starter Edition. #
From the intel.com website, get Quartus Prime V22.0 or later with Questa – Intel Starter edition. Select the desired devices and adhere to all installation instructions for success.
2) Install WSL (Windows subsystem for Linux) #
Run powershell environment as administrator.
- Install WSL
Remember: In Windows Features, ensure to turn on the Windows Subsystem for Linux option.
2) Restart WSL to take the changes:
3) Install additional Linux distribution Ubuntu 18.04:
wsl --install -d Ubuntu-18.04 (username and password is required)
In order to check the available distributions, it may be executed:
wsl --list --online
Note: in virtual machines, error 0x80370102 may occur. It is solved by executing: wsl --update wsl --set-default-version 1 wsl -–shutdown and then trying again wsl --install -d Ubuntu-18.04
4) Finish configuring the WSL environment for GeMRTOS designing (confirm all the prompts):
sudo apt update sudo apt install wsl sudo apt install dos2unix sudo apt install make sudo apt install build-essential
