XRT install on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS

Hello,

I'm trying to install XRT on the latest Ubuntu LTS. I get a compile error at the call to fpga_mgr_register. I see the API in the kernel recenly changed (https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/7085e2a94f7df5f419e3cfb2fe809ce6564e9629). 

 

Is there any problem with just updating XRT to use the newer API? It seems to build & install without issue after the update. 

 

Thanks!

Trying again - it looks like it got converted to a hyperlink improperly.

Re: XRT install on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS -- me too

Thank you very much for investigating this and writing it up. I have the same issue. Is there an easy patch to make to the code to get it to build? Otherwise in lieu of a supported fix at present I will have to downgrade (reinstall) Ubuntu to 18.04 LTS. Oh well.
