OS Build Process

Building a current reference operating system for the Intel® Joule™ compute module requires downloading and installing several prerequisite packages required to complete the build process. After the build is complete, it can be installed onto the module and tested.
Or, you can download a pre-built OS image from the Download Center .
Instructions in this section have been tested with Ubuntu* 16.04 and should work on most modern distributions if adapted by a knowledgeable developer.
Make sure your working directory is not part of an encrypted file system, such as
. Because encrypted file systems restrict file length, the build will fail.
Yocto Project
Developers need to be familiar with the Yocto Project build tools to create custom OS images for the module.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
