To configure the environment to run Vitis, run the following script, which sets up the environment to run in a specific command shell.

source <Vitis_install_path>/Vitis/2023.2/

NOTE: .csh scripts are also provided but this tutorial assumes a bash shell is used.

To configure XRT for Alveo Data Center accelerator cards, run the following script. This is not required for Embedded platforms.

source /opt/xilinx/xrt/

To specify the location of any Data Center or Embedded platforms you have installed, set the following environment variable:

export PLATFORM_REPO_PATHS=<path to platforms>

NOTE: On some Ubuntu distributions, you must also export the LIBRARY_PATH to properly set up Vitis.

export LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
