Setting Up a Development System

The host software is installed using a binary RPM. The RPM includes a kernel driver. Kernel drivers must be built using header files that match the version of the kernel running on the workstation the host software is installed on. This restriction prevents Teradici from distributing pre-built RPMs. The package provided by Teradici allows end users to create a binary RPM.

The installation topics describe requirements and steps to set up a Linux system capable of creating the PCoIP host software binary RPM. This document is written for a Linux system running CentOS. The same instructions may apply to other Linux distributions, but may require changes.

Development System Requirements

  • CentOS 7.5 or other supported Linux distribution installed.

  • Gnome or KDE desktop environment installed.

  • Root permissions.
