Running the SystemC TLM2 Examples

September 30, 2009 2 comments

This short tutorial is for those of you eager to run TLM 2 examples inside SCLive 3.0.
I will take an arbitrary example here to illustrate the simple procedure.

1) Open a terminal window and navigate to the examples directory:

cd ~/software/TLM-2009-07-15/examples/tlm/lt/

2) In there you will find the src (source directory) as well as the build-unix directory. Go to the build-unix directory and execute the makefile.

cd build-unix
make run

3) This will compile and link the example. Finally this will run the resulting executable (lt.exe) example inside the terminal window. Alternatively you can run the executable yourself by typing:

./lt.exe | less

4) To clean up the directory simply execute the command:

make clean

Et Voila!

Adding Modules to SCLive Manually

September 28, 2009 2 comments

The previous video highlighted how one could add modules using provided scripts. In this next video we will add modules manually from the

Essentially SCLive allows the dynamic addition and removal of modules. To do so, you will have to use the “activate <module_file_name>” and “deactivate <module_file_name>” .

If you are running SCLive in a persistant mode the modules added dynamically will be kept after the powering off SCLive.

Creating a Persistant SCLive 3.0 on a USB Flash Drive

September 15, 2009 5 comments

Why do we want to do that?

Persistant installations of liveCD gives us the best of both worlds. You are able to boot SCLive from most computers (LiveCD feature) but you can also modify the data as well as the system files.

This is almost like a hard drive install with the added benefit to be able to use it on most machine without any additional installation required.

In the context of SCLive, any modification that you will make to the existing projects will be safely kept on the USB Flash Drive.

The following video details one of the many ways to achieve a persistant installation.

Et Voila!
