Prerequisites by Component

Intel® System Studio 2019 Beta might also require installation of webkitgtk for using Eclipse* IDE:

  • Linux* host -
    • RedHat/Fedora: dnf install webkitgtk
    • Ubuntu/Debian : apt-get install libwebkitgtk-3.0-0

Wind River Linux* LTS 17 Platform Project Plugins

  • Wind River Linux* LTS 17 is not supported on all the platforms that Intel® System Studio 2019 Beta supports. For instance, you can install Intel® System Studio 2019 Beta on Ubuntu 18.04 but Wind River Linux* LTS 17 cannot be installed on Ubuntu 18.04.
  • Please refer to this link to learn about host system recommendation and requirement for Wind River Linux* LTS 17.

Intel® C/C++ Compiler

  • Linux* target - 
    • Linux Developer tools component installed, including gcc, g++ and related tools
      • gcc versions 4.3 - 6.3 supported
      • binutils versions 2.20-2.29 supported
    • Development for a 32-bit target on a 64-bit host may require optional library components (ia32-libs, lib32gcc1, lib32stdc++6, libc6-dev-i386, gcc-multilib, g++-multilib) to be installed from your Linux distribution.

Docker* based application workflow

  • Using Intel® System Studio to target Ubuntu Desktop with the free "Community Edition" (CE) version of Docker* requires Docker version 1.13.0 (Jan 2017 release) or later. We recommend that you install the latest version of Docker on your development system to ensure expected functionality.
