Preparing a Development Computer

Installing Ubuntu Linux Updates

The Linux software on your Development Computer must be current before you install the Wind River Host Tools software. This section provides instructions to perform this update.

From your Development Computer command line interface, use the following commands to apply the Ubuntu updates and install new software packages.
To maintain Wind River® Intelligent Device Platform XT 3.1 compatibility, do not run sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update

Copy and paste the following command into the terminal window, and then click Enter.

Confirming Disk Space

You will need about 100 GB of free disk space to install the Wind River Host Tools and build your Gateway OS.

Creating Directories

Create the following directories on your Development Computer:

  • $HOME/WindRiver - Wind River Host Tools directory.
  • $HOME/Installer - A temporary directory that you can delete after completing your installation.
  • $HOME/Project - You will use this directory both now and later when you develop future applications.
  • $HOME/Project/build-cache - Using a build cache will reduce the time required to build your Gateway OS.
Use these commands to create the directories:
cd $HOME
mkdir WindRiver
mkdir Installer
mkdir Project
mkdir Project/build-cache
