On this page you are going to find all the necessary information to start from scratch to use the RidgeRun SDK on your DM8168 evaluation module (EVM). In the following section we assume that you have already downloaded the EZSDK version and that you have already installed your toolchain

This guide is oriented to help the new users to configure their DM8168 EVM boards and work with the RidgeRun's SDK 2011Q2.


In order to install your DM8168 EVM SDK 2011Q2 you can follow the steps described in the installation section of the RidgeRun 2011Q2 SDK User Guide.

Video initialization

When you boot your board the RidgeRun logo will be displayed, in order to display video the following commands must be executed:

echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/vpss/graphics0/enabled 
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/vpss/graphics1/enabled
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/vpss/graphics2/enabled

Using Gstreamer

Some examples of use of GStreamer to implement basic multimedia pipelines can be found at DM81xx GStreamer Pipelines - SDK 2011Q2
