Simics® is now free (as beer) for open-source developers

Running Kolibri and its programs in other OSes
  • Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install Simics(R) under Linux(R) and run KolibriOS.
    1. Download Simics package manager (ISPM) and Simics itself from its home page at Intel site.
    2. Unpack ISPM to, say, /opt/simics.

      Code: Select all

      $ sudo mkdir /opt/simics
      $ cd /opt/simics/
      $ sudo tar -xf /data/trash/simics/intel-simics-package-manager-1.0.0-linux64.tar.gz
    3. Install Simics and packages included to the downloaded bundle.

      Code: Select all

      $ sudo ./intel-simics-package-manager-1.0.0/ispm packages --non-interactive --trust-unsigned-packages --install-dir . --install-bundle /data/trash/simics/simics-6-packages-2021-16-linux64.ispm
    4. There is an issue with permissions, fix it.

      Code: Select all

      $ sudo chmod o+r -R .
      Installation completed!
    5. Now create a directory and set up a Simics project in it.

      Code: Select all

      $ cd /path/to/your/project
      $ /opt/simics/simics-6.0.83/bin/project-setup
    6. Install packages to the newly created project.

      Code: Select all

      $ ./bin/addon-manager -bc
      $ ./bin/addon-manager -bs /opt/simics/simics-qsp-x86-6.0.43/
    7. Download kolibrios.simics file attached to this post, edit path to kolibri.raw file in it and put kolibrios.simics to targets/qsp-x86/.
    8. Copy four more files.

      Code: Select all

      $ cp /opt/simics/simics-qsp-x86-6.0.43/targets/qsp-x86/qsp-system.include targets/qsp-x86/
      $ cp /opt/simics/simics-qsp-x86-6.0.43/targets/qsp-x86/qsp-images.include targets/qsp-x86/
      $ cp /opt/simics/simics-qsp-x86-6.0.43/targets/qsp-x86/qsp-uefi.include targets/qsp-x86/
      $ cp /opt/simics/simics-qsp-x86-6.0.43/targets/qsp-x86/rw-state.include targets/qsp-x86/
      Project setup is done!
    9. Run Simics.

      Code: Select all

      $ ./bin/simics -no-gui targets/qsp-x86/kolibrios.simics

  • Holy Crap this is awesome!

    I so wanted to see such a powerful tool available for a poor private user.

    My deep respect to Intel.
