Introduction

Ubuntu Linux is the official operating system for the Parallella computer and the GNU-based Epiphany SDK (eSDK) is the official software development environment.

Support for other Linux distributions and operating systems is welcomed, as is support for new software development environments and programming languages.

Questions and offers of help should be directed to the forums.

Operating Systems

Ubuntu

Official

The Parallella FTP site has Linaro Ubuntu SD card images for:

  • 18 and 66-core prototypes (Ubuntu 12.03)
  • 18-core Gen0 boards (Ubuntu 12.04)
  • 18-core Gen1 boards (Ubuntu 12.04)
Setup

Parallella Quick Start Guide

SD Card Setup Macintosh

Linaro Nano

Shodruky Ryhammer (shodruk) has put together a how-to for setting up a Linaro Nano system (Minimal headless / Light-weight X environment).

Debian

Andrew Back (9600/carrierdetect) has created a minimal/headless Debian 7.0 + eSDK and COPRTHR image.

FreeBSD

FreeBSD is being ported to the ZedBoard and there is interest in a Parallella port.

Software Development

Epiphany SDK

The Epiphany SDK is the primary development environment and comprises:

  • GCC, GDB and newlib
  • Epiphany driver, loader and runtime library
  • Eclipse IDE
  • BSPs
  • Utilities

Pre-built packages can be downloaded from the Parallella FTP site.

The Epiphany SDK is jointly developed by Embecosm (GCC, GDB and newlib) and Adapteva (everything else). Contributions in the form of bug reports and patches are welcomed at GitHub.

Resources

OpenCL SDK

OpenCL development is supported by COPRTHR SDK which is developed by Brown Deer Technology.

Resources

Erlang

Erlang Solutions are looking at Erlang support for Parallella and further details will be provided in due course.

Resources

Go

Mortdeus has started work on a Go back-end for Epiphany.

Resources

LLVM

Hoernchen has created an LLVM back-end for Epiphany.

Yabin is currently (15/05/13) looking at Clang support and other features.
