Prerequisites & Requirements¶
This document describes the software and hardware requiremnts for building TF-A Tests for AArch32 and AArch64 target platforms.
It may be possible to build TF-A Tests with combinations of software and hardware that are different from those listed below. The software and hardware described in this document are officially supported.
TF-A Tests may be built using a Linux build host machine with a recent Linux distribution. We have performed tests using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (64-bit), but other distributions should also work fine, provided that the tools and libraries can be installed.
Install the required packages to build TF-A Tests with the following command:
sudo apt-get install device-tree-compiler build-essential git perl libxml-libxml-perl
Download and install the GNU cross-toolchain from Linaro. The TF-A Tests have been tested with version 9.2-2019.12 (gcc 9.2):
In addition, the following optional packages and tools may be needed:
For debugging, Arm Development Studio 5 (DS-5).
