Wind River Linux

Released: Nov 10, 2013     Updated: Aug 4, 2015


The Rolling Cumulative Patch Layer (RCPL) was developed by Wind River to simplify patch management of Wind River Linux.  The expected usage is that customers install the latest RCPL for their release.  Base Wind River Linux 5.0.1 + RCPL is the default supported configuration.  Please install this RCPL at your earliest convenience.

The README.txt on this OLS page contains instructions on how to use these features, general information on the RCPL and a complete list of defects fixed. Conversely, the defects listed in OLS page aren't complete due to the length limitation of characters. The README.txt should be reviewed prior to installation.

The whatsnew file on the OLS page contains what new features were added by each RCPL.

Installation Notes

Installation Notes

Wind River Linux is now only available via Electronic Software Distribution (ESD) method accessible via the Wind River Installation Tool (wrInstaller) available within your product installation.

Step 1 - Prepare

  • Shut down all product processes, including any license server.
  • If you have altered any Wind River-supplied file in your installation tree (not a recommended practice), archive them manually before installing any update, as these files may be overwritten during the installation process.

 Step 2 - Install

  • Linux:   Go to installDir/maintenance/wrInstaller/x86-linux2 and run wrInstaller.   (Windows:   Go to installDir\maintenance\wrInstaller\x86-win32 and run wrInstaller.exe.)
  • At the Choose Installation Type screen, choose "Online Content" and click next. Updates to the lastest installer is required. 
  • The installer will automatically search all available updates and verify your entitlement. (This may take a few minutes.)
  • Select "Wind River Linux" in "Select Products" drop-down list.
  • Continue your selections through the installation process and complete by clicking Finish.

 NOTE -  1) If you're having connectivity (firewall or network setup) issues, Wind River allows you to run the wrInstaller on a machine with Internet connectivity by downloading this update pack into a convenient location and then installing the content back onto the development machine. Follow these instructions:

2) On Windows hosts, you may notice some errors in the "setup.log" around "readlink" and "". These messages can be ignored as they do not affect the running of the product. If though you should decide to un-install the product, there may be some error messages about changed files which the Installer will not remove. In this case, you can simply remove the remaining files and the installation directory manually.
