To print in Pratt 392 login to an eecg machine and run:
To print single sided:
lpr -o sides=one-sides -Plw392
First ask eecg for a samba account. They will provide an ID and a password. If you want to change the password ssh on to samba.eecg.toronto.edu (with your eecg unix username and password) and use the command /var/samba/bin/smbpasswd. Note that you can't ssh to that machine directly from Tier 2: you need to ssh to one of the eecg servers (ra, anubis, seth, etc) first and from there you can ssh to samba.eecg.
Now set up lpadmin:
1. install cupsys in your linux client machine: sudo apt-get install cupsys cupsys-bsd cupsys-client (no longer needed in Ubuntu 14.04) 2. run: lpadmin -p lw392 -v "smb://<SAMBA ID>:<SAMBA PASSWORD>@samba.eecg.toronto.edu/lw392" -E 3. run: lpadmin -d lw392
Once that's set up, configure the printer in your Ubuntu. To do this in Ubuntu 14.04,
1. Go into Printers 2. Click on Add 3. In Enter URI, smb://samba.eecg.toronto.edu/lw392 (This is the printer in Pratt 392) 4. Choose the driver (HP Laser Jet 4100n in Pratt 392)
Printing should now work. However, it may keep on asking for password every time you print. To get rid of this, do the following:
1. Stop cups (sudo service cups stop) 2. sudo vim /etc/cups/printers.conf 3. Near the top of file "/etc/cups/printers.conf" is a line: AuthInfoRequired username,password. Comment this out (#AuthInfoRequired username,password) 4. Save file 5. Restart cups (sudo service cups start)
To mount the eecg samba drive:
sudo apt-get install smbfs mkdir <FOLDER> sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=<USERNAME> //samba.eecg.toronto.edu/<USERNAME> <FOLDER>
To auto mount. Add this to /etc/fstab:
//samba.eecg.toronto.edu/<USERNAME> /home/<USERNAME>/<FOLDER> smbfs username=<USERNAME>,password=<PASSWORD>,uid=<USERNAME> 0 0
sudo umount -a
The Quartus license file is located at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can either enter this manually in Quartus → Tools → License Setup or append it to your $LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable.
This license works for any Quartus version.
Quartus 10.1 sp1 is available in /brown/r/r0/choijon5/altera/10.1/quartus
Quartus 9.1 sp2 is available in /brown/r/r0/choijon5/altera/9.1/quartus
*Note: To run Quartus GUI for 9.1sp2, run qgui inside /quartus/bin instead of quartus
Quartus 8.1 is available in /jayar/b/b3/tools/altera/quartus/quartus8.1
*Update : On the latest Kernel Version 2.6.32-32, Installing for Q10.1 and device families work fine, however, after installing SP1, Q10.1 may not launch. It will give an error similar to export: 137: 800.000: bad variable name
If this occurs, simply comment out line 137 in quartus/adm/qenv.sh. You may not need to do 1, 2 below.
If you want to install Quartus on your own machine and you are running Ubuntu, make sure it is Ubuntu 10.04. It's the only recent version that can run both Quartus 9.1 and 10.1. There are three things you need to do to get Quartus 10.1 working.
1. When installing the device families for quartus, their installation script doesn't work. So you need to manually install each device family you want by doing the following:
bash YOUR_QUARTUS_DIR/bin/quartus_sh –qinstall -qda 10.1_devices_linux/altera_installer/bin/../../devices/subscription/stratixv.qda
2. After installing quartus, run this patch to fix the frequency scaling problem.

Installing Quartus II in Ubuntu 14.04
Quartus II requires several 32-bit libraries. They need to be install one-by-one. When you try to install it, you'll see errors such as:
Error: save_system : /home/blair/altera/12.0/quartus/linux/jre/lib/i386/xawt/libmawt.so: libXi.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Which can be fixed by running:
sudo apt-get install libXi6:i386
Modelsim GUI does not work with the latest version of the libfreetype6 package. Installing version 2.4.7 seems to work.
For more info, see: http://communities.mentor.com/mgcx/message/48524
Installing ModelSim and Quartus II 11.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit
You will need several 32-bit libraries:
$ sudo apt-get install libXi6:i386 libpng12-dev:i386 libfreetype6-dev:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libxft2:i386 libncurses5:i386 libsm6:i386 libxtst6:i386
When you download Quartus II 11.1 from Altera you will get a file called 11.1_173_quartus_linux.sh. To get the installer to work you may need to run the following commands:
$ chmod a+x 11.1_173_quartus_linux.sh $ ./11.1_173_quartus_linux.sh $ cd 11.1_173_quartus_linux $ rm altera_installer/bin/libpng12.so.0 $ bash ./setup
You will probably need to take the same steps to install the device support files and ModelSim.
ModelSim requires a few extra steps:
Quartus II 64-bit
To run 64-bit Quartus II on Linux, you need to do one of two things:
1) Give a –64bit command line argument to Quartus II
2) Set a $QUARTUS_64BIT environment variable

Removing “Inconsistency detected by ld.so” Warning
In some configurations you may see the warning when you run a quartus tool:
“Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-close.c: 762: _dl_close: Assertion `map→l_init_called' failed!”
This occurs, for example, with Quartus II 64-Bit 15.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 x64.
To remove this warning:
cd ~/altera/15.0/quartus/linux64 mv libcurl.so.4 libcurl.so.4.bak mv libccl_curl_drl.so libccl_curl_drl.so.bak mv libcrypto.so.1.0.0 libcrypto.so.1.0.0.bak mv libssl.so.1.0.0 libssl.so.1.0.0.bak
Run the following command once. (Tip: ssh no password)
Download and install Modelsim SE (http://model.com/content/modelsim-downloads) *Note: link broken. Get the installation file from another member of the LegUp team. *Note: Do not download Modelsim SE Version 10, it does not work with the site license. Use version 6 instead.
1. Go to www.cmc.ca and sign up for an account. Indicate Jason Anderson as your supervisor.
2. Once Jason approves, your subscription level will become “Designer Subscription”. You will receive a confirmation email from CMC registrar.
3. Go to http://www.cmc.ca/whatweoffer/design/cadactivate.aspx and download the CADActivate script on a tier-1 linux machine (anubis.eecg) and run it with firefox (ssh -X <login>@anubis.eecg.toronto.edu, run firefox and download the script in that firefox window). To run this script from the command line on the eecg machines: “javaws launch.jnlp”. Log in with your CMC account. You will receive another confirmation stating that your request has been received.
4. After approximately one business day, you should have access to the license. If you're on a tier-1 machine, simply source /CMC/tools/CSHRCs/MGLS_license and you're good to go. If you're on a non tier-1 machine like me, you have will have to set up SSH tunnels through a tier-1 machine. I did the following:
ssh -f -L 6056:u10e.vrg.utoronto.ca:6056 -L 7056:u10e.vrg.utoronto.ca:7056 -L 16056:u10e.vrg.utoronto.ca:16056 -L 17056:u10e.vrg.utoronto.ca:17056 seth.eecg.utoronto.ca sleep 100000000
Note: You may want to put this line in your crontab (run: $ crontab -e ) so you don't have to run this command every time you restart your computer:
@reboot /bin/sleep 30 ; ssh -f -L 6056:u10e.vrg.utoronto.ca:6056 -L 7056:u10e.vrg.utoronto.ca:7056 -L 16056:u10e.vrg.utoronto.ca:16056 -L 17056:u10e.vrg.utoronto.ca:17056 seth.eecg.utoronto.ca sleep 100000000
This will forward your local 6056 port to port 6056 on u10e.vrg through seth.eecg. The -f option means ssh is forked into background, and sleep 100000000 keeps the ssh session open for ~3 years.
Then you will have to make your environment variable to point to those ports in your .bashrc:
Also add Modelsim to your path.
Test that modelsim works:
MIPS and ARM emulation support is provided by QEMU. To install QEMU in Ubuntu run the following command:
sudo apt-get install qemu-system-arm qemu-system-mips
Alternatively you can build QEMU from source (QEMU Downloads). When building from source may need to run:
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev libglib2.0-dev
to resolve some dependencies.
The scheduleviewer's graph display option has been enabled by default. The feature requires an additional package, graphviz-2.26 (other versions do not seem to work). Before installing graphviz, install its depedency first.
sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev
Now to install graphviz,
wget http://www.graphviz.org/pub/graphviz/ARCHIVE/graphviz-2.26.3.tar.gz tar xvf graphviz-2.26.3.tar.gz cd graphviz-2.26.3 ./configure make sudo make install
If you do not want to install graphviz and want to disable graph display, change the line in file LEGUP_REPO/gui/scheduleviewer/scheduleviewer.pro to this,
CONFIG += debug_and_release #display_graphs
To get commit access to the git repository send your ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub file to Andrew or anyone else with commit access who should follow: Getting Git Access. If this file doesn't exist run:
ssh-keygen -t rsa
Also run the following command to add RSA identities to the authentication agent after generating a new rsa key.
Ensure your name and email is configured:
git config --global user.name "Full Name" git config --global user.email "email@example.com"
If you already checked out the git repository then give yourself commit access with (run the command in the directory where the git repository is saved):
git config remote.origin.url firstname.lastname@example.org:legup
You will now be able to push changes to the public repository:
git add <modified files> git commit git push
All commits are sent to the mailing list: email@example.com
Make sure you subscribe here
If this is your first time using git then re-checkout the repository with commit access. NOTE: This has a different url than the public read-only git clone command on the main page and will give you commit access:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:legup legup
To checkout the public git without commit access:
git clone git://legup.org:7326/legup legup
Print off this cheat sheet before you use git: http://cheat.errtheblog.com/s/git
Use the gui:
If you want to 'git pull' but have local changes that you don't want to commit (for instance to Makefile.config). Run git stash first to save your local changes.
git stash git pull git stash pop
To undo a pull:
git reset --hard abandon everything since your last commit; this command can be DANGEROUS. If merging has resulted in conflicts and you'd like to just forget about the merge, this command will do that. git reset --hard ORIG_HEAD undo your most recent *successful* merge *and* any changes that occurred after. Useful for forgetting about the merge you just did. If there are conflicts (the merge was not successful), use "git reset --hard" (above) instead.
Note: crosstool-ng has a bunch of dependencies (libncurses5-dev, gawk, flex, bison, gpref). apt-get these first.
Go to http://crosstool-ng.org/ and download the latest version, extract the tar file and run ./configure, make, make install.
create the directory you would like to install crosstool-ng (i.e. mkdir crosstool-ng), cd crosstool-ng, ct-ng menuconfig.
this launches a GUI which allows you to choose the proper settings. Choose MIPS Little Endian 32 bit with a software FPU, and Target OS as baremetal with hardware. Choose Newlib and proper gcc version. Then run sudo ct-ng build
Building the tool takes around ~10 minutes but everything is done automatically. The MIPS binutils should be installed under ~/x-tools/mipsel-unknown-elf/bin. Add this directory to your path.
