[Linux on DE1] How to generate .rbf file

Dear all,

I cannot generate the .rbf file from my_project_time_limited.sof, using "quartus_cpf -c final_time_limited.sof socfpga.rbf" and it seems that my license (lite) of quartus is the problem.

As this file is needed for configuring u-boot, is it possible for me to use Linux on the DE1-Soc?

Thanks in advance

You can eliminate the error by using the EPFL VPN and adding a license server to quartus when you compile.

The license server we use is "1719@lamipc54.epfl.ch". You'll need to add this to the quartus GUI if you compile graphically. If compiling from the command line, you need to export an environment variable. The following one should work on linux systems:

export ALTERAD_LICENSE_FILE="1719@lamipc54.epfl.ch"
