How do I install RVD and RVI on a network drive under Linux?

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS), RealView ICE and Trace (RVI / RVT)

Answer

This FAQ describes a method of installing RVDS and RealView-ICE which provides a central location for the tool binaries which multiple users can access - this avoids installing the tools on multiple PC’s. Note: This only applies to the Linux versions of RVDS and RealView-ICE 3.1, and above.

Assuming the network drive is read only for users, and read/write for root, the steps are:-

As root

  • Install RVDS v3.1 to network drive at chosen installation directory
  • Install RVI v3.1 to same location
  • At command prompt change to installation directory and execute the following commands

source RVDS31env.posh
source rvi_3_1_env.posh
rvdebug

This sets up the environment assigning any environment variables, and starts RVD. It also makes modifications to the installation, such as adding the RVI connection to the connection control window.

  • Close RVD

As user

  • At command prompt change to installation directory and execute the following commands

source RVDS31env.posh
source rvi_3_1_env.posh
rvdebug

This sets up the environment for running the tools, and starts RVD.

  • In the connection control window, configure the RealView-ICE connection (right mouse click and 'Configure...')

Here RVD should warn that the rvi.rvc file is read only and prompt for an alternative location to create a file. Select 'empty' and store the file in a user modifiable directory (the default path should be fine i.e. the user's home directory).

  • Connect and debug
