XRT install on Ubuntu 20.04 fails

Hello,

I'm new to Xilinx cards.

When I follow the install documentation for Alveo U200 on Ubuntu I get:

system@sekhmet:~$ sudo apt install ./xrt*.deb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'xrt' instead of './xrt_202020.2.8.743_18.04-amd64-xrt.deb'
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
xrt : Depends: libboost-filesystem1.65.1 but it is not installable
Depends: libboost-program-options1.65.1 but it is not installable
Depends: libboost-system1.65.1 but it is not installable
Depends: libprotobuf10 but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

system@sekhmet:~$ more /etc/os-release
NAME="Ubuntu"
VERSION="20.04.2 LTS (Focal Fossa)"
ID=ubuntu
ID_LIKE=debian
PRETTY_NAME="Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS"
VERSION_ID="20.04"
HOME_URL="https://www.ubuntu.com/"
SUPPORT_URL="https://help.ubuntu.com/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/"
PRIVACY_POLICY_URL="https://www.ubuntu.com/legal/terms-and-policies/privacy-policy"
VERSION_CODENAME=focal
UBUNTU_CODENAME=focal


system@sekhmet:~$ uname -r
5.8.0-43-generic
system@sekhmet:~$

 

Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi @PeoMan ,

Welcome to the Xilinx forums!

Thank you for providing all of the background information. There may be a couple issues at hand, the first is that the XRT version you are installing is the 18.04 version. The 20.04 version can be downloaded here:
https://www.xilinx.com/bin/public/openDownload?filename=xrt_202020.2.8.743_20.04-amd64-xrt.deb

The second issue that may be happening is that 2020.2 XRT only supports up to 20.04 LTS with a 5.4.0-52-generic kernel and not the 20.04.2 with the 5.8.0-43-generic as you have listed. This is noted in the 2020.2 XRT Release Notes found here:
https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2020_2/ug1451-xrt-release-notes.pdf

Regards,
~John

Hi John,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Ok, I understand. Then I  have to reinstall the OS ;-(

Please explain how one would find the XRT download for 20.04.

I started here: https://www.xilinx.com/products/boards-and-kits/alveo/u200.html#gettingStarted

Selected Tools version 2020.2 and Ubuntu then download links for 18.04 and 16.04 is shown.

Thanks

Hi @PeoMan,

Thank you for highlighting this. I checked internally on why the link isn't visible on the U200 page and I've learned that the U200 shell isn't formally supported on Ubuntu 20.04.

A new release is planned with the 2021.1 toolset release for the U200 shell which includes the latest OS support.*
* This is the current plan and is not a guarantee

I apologize, my first post may have been confusing. Please use Ubuntu 18.04 with the generic kernel listed in the 2020.2 XRT Release Notes.

Regards,
~John

Hi John,

No, worries. I'll run it on 18.04
