Packages to install
General utilities and RR SDK required packages
These are packages that are typically required to put your system in shape for general utilities, and also packages necessary to compile typical RR's SDKs.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install -y build-essential fakeroot graphviz gdb vim openssh-server git sudo apt-get install -y zip subversion git-core nfs-kernel-server nfs-common meld sudo apt-get install -y portmap xinetd tftpd tftp curl libncurses5-dev texinfo sudo apt-get install -y minicom quilt curl autoconf libcrypt-ssleay-perl quilt sudo apt-get install -y libusb-dev libexpect-perl mono-devel libgtk2.0-dev bison flex sudo apt-get install -y xclip liblzo2-dev uuid-dev python-virtualenv sudo apt-get install -y terminator tree doxygen vlc libdbus-glib-1-dev iftop libxml2-dev sudo apt-get install -y gstreamer-tools libgstreamer0.10-dev libgstrtspserver-0.10-dev sudo apt-get install -y libreadline-dev valac libtool libterm-readkey-perl libwww-perl sudo apt-get install -y gparted gperf libgmp-dev libgmp3-dev libmpfr-dev libmpc-dev sudo apt-get install -y imagemagick ddd cmake cmake-curses-gui ccache mtd-utils sudo apt-get install -y intltool xsltproc libusb-1.0-0-dev libbz2-dev libjpeg62 sudo apt-get install -y ccache
This package is required by Lauterbach TRACE32:
sudo apt-get install -y libjpeg62
The next packages can also be convenient, but note that they will eventually require user-interaction during the installation process, for example to confirm a User License agreement.
sudo apt-get install -y ubuntu-restricted-extras
RR developers work continuously using quilt to create patches.
sudo apt-get install quilt
Recommended quilt refresh settings (File ~/.quiltrc):
The termnet and termnetd packages are available through:
Common packages used by RR Developers
RidgeRun developers often install:
sudo apt-get install -y geany geany-plugin-addons emacs eclipse-cdt cscope hamster-indicator pidgin filezilla gimp wireshark wireshark-doc
Switch shell from dash to bash
sudo rm /bin/sh sudo ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh
Tuning bash startup script
echo "alias h='history 100'" >> $HOME/.bashrc echo "alias e='source rr-make-env 2> /dev/null'" >> $HOME/.bashrc echo 'export PATH=$PATH:/sbin' >> $HOME/.bashrc
When you're ready you can source the file:
The location /opt/ridgerun/downloads is conveniently used to hold all the packages and tarballs downloaded by the RR SDK, and is convenient because it can be re-used if you have more than one RR SDK installed in your machine.
sudo mkdir --parents /opt/ridgerun/downloads sudo chmod ugo+rwx /opt/ridgerun/downloads
Host ldconfig does not support ARM architecture
If you get the error
Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
when you first boot your target hardware, you may have run into the ldconfig issue. On the host computer check the file length of
If that file is less than 200 bytes long, you need to use a different version of the host application ldconfig.
When the 2.19 version of ldconfig that comes with Ubuntu 14.04 tries to create the /etc/ld.so.cache shared library cache on the target file system, it ignores all ARM shared libraries. This is a known defect. To work around the defect, the RidgeRun SDK has been enhanced to fetch the 2.15 version of ldconfig and use it to create the target file system /etc/ld.so.cache file.
If you are using a older version of the RidgeRun SDK, you can follow these commands to resolve the issue.

Building a RR SDK
After the steps above, you can try out building your RR SDK. See the SDK User Guides for reference.
Steps needed to install toolchain on versions newer than ubuntu 12.04
In order to run the toolchain installer you need to install the 32-bits libs, since this versions removed ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk packages from the repository you need to run
apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libxtst6:i386 gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 lib32stdc++6 libxt6:i386 libdbus-glib-1-2:i386 libasound2:i386
Special steps when installing the dvsdk
Running the dvsdk installer, use the
--forcehost switch to enable the installation, for example:
Packages that will be asked by the Ridgerun SDK
sudo apt-get install libdbus-glib-1-dev libgtk2.0-dev bison flex libglib2.0-dev
