Installation Notes

Wind River Linux OVP 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.
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 OVP 6.0" in "Select Products" drop-down list.
Continue your selections through the installation process and complete by clicking Finish.
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:
Retrieve the executable from HERE
Launch the executable (example: ./setup_linux32) with the following options:
-download -sdf
Copy the download folder to the other host machine and run setup.
Change the permission (example: chmod a+x setup_Linux32)

If you encounter the error, you will need to apply the following workaround:
1. cd /wrlinux-addons/wr-common/git/
2. mv meta-java meta-java.orig
