Cross-compiling VMWare View for ARM Linux (in Debian/Ubuntu)

February 15th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Earlier this month, I wrote an article about PCoIP Technology which shows an Android application (VMWare View) running on an OMAP4 Tablet displaying a Windows 7 desktop. This remote desktop technology relies on a powerful server to do the processing and thin clients (in that case Tablets) to display the desktop. Since only pixels are transferred any OS (supported by the server) could be displayed in the thin client.

That made me wonder if there was an open source PCoIP client that could run on low end Linux client such as the Raspberry Pi. VMWare View Open Client provides just what we need, but is only available in source code so we need to cross-compile it for ARM or build it in an ARM machine. Today, I’ll show the instructions I followed to cross-compile it for ARM in Debian using Emdebian Toolchain.

First download and extract VMware View Open Client 4.5 source code:

wget http://vmware-view-open-client.googlecode.com/files/VMware-view-open-client-source-4.5.0-297975.tar.gz
tar xzvf VMware-view-open-client-source-4.5.0-297975.tar.gz
cd VMware-view-open-client-source-4.5.0-297975

Install some tools on the build machine:

sudo apt-get install intltool

and some ARM libraries and development packages:

sudo /usr/share/pdebuild-cross/xapt -a armel libicu-dev libcurl3-dev libgtk2.0-0 libboost-signals-dev

Finally, configure, build and install VMWare Open Client:

LDFLAGS="-L/usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/lib -lboost_signals" ./configure --target=arm-linux-gnueabi \
--host=arm-linux-gnueabi --prefix=/home/jaufranc/edev/vmware-client --with-boost-signals=no
make
make install

That’s it! VMWare View for ARM is now ready. You just need to copy the files in the installation directory to your target board.
I have tried it in my Raspberry Pi emulator and after installation some libraries (libcurl3 and libboost-signals1.42.0), vmware-view could run (Screenshot below).

VMWare View in Raspberry Pi Emulator

VMWare View Open Client in QEMU (Debian ARMv6 CPU)

So we now have VMWare View (PCoIP client) running in an ARM emulator, we should then able to “run” any OS – such as Windows 8 – in the Raspberry Pi or other low-end thin clients. Of course, this method only makes sense if you need several thin clients with one server. I have not not fully tested this with a VMWare server, but I’ll surely have a try once the Raspberry Pi board and Windows 8 Consumer Preview are released later this month.

    That sounds interesting.

    I just found out about Raspberry pi and the first thing that came in to my mind was a pcoip client running on it.
    Raspberry pi + some fullhd display + keyb + mouse would be a cheap alternative to Samsung NC240 pcoip display.

    @ John U
    Yes, the price and size of the Raspberry Pi open the door to all sort of applications that may not have been cost effective previously, although the total price of the Raspberry Pi is a bit higher than I expected (around 60 USD after shipping and taxes in the country I live).

    I’m planning to try Windows 8 in Raspberry Pi via PCoIP once I get my board.

    Hi!

    It’s a very interesting subject that could be use on many products. In my case I tried so hard to cross-compil Vmware view to run on a Wyse T50, but I failed…
    I hope that i will find a solution, I’m working on it…

    Thanks for this instructions.

      Let me know if you succeed, and if you don’t, you can always post your error message here (if any), maybe I’ll get an idea.
      I’ve given up trying PCoIP for now, because the server setup seems relatively complicated and it apparently requires a paid version of VMWare vSphere.

    Hi, working together with juli3n, (with your clever guidelines) and we both need a hand to setup cross-compiling platform (debian squeeze) :

    checking for uidna_IDNToASCII in -licuuc… no : configure: error: libicu is required, but not found.
    checked, libicu-dev & libicu-dev-armel-cross set up

    Please help, you seem to know well how to set up perfectly squeeze ! is there any lack or newer package to set up ?

    Thanks for your advices

  5. March 28th, 2012 at 09:32 | #6

    @ Yann
    If libicu-dev and libicu-dev-armel-cross are already installed, you’d better check config.log to see the exact error.

    If by any chance, Wyse T50 is running a recent version of Ubuntu, you could also install vmware-view directly by running:
    sudo apt-get install vmware-view-open-client

    Of course, it exists but native PCOIP doesn’t work, only RDP (We get Remote KMS Container Error from View Server, on the other hand it works on windows thin clients). Well, here is the detailed error point :

    checking for uidna_IDNToASCII in -licuuc

    @ Yann
    It’s using g++ instead of arm-linux-gnueabi-g++
    Have you install the toolchain following the instructions at http://www.cnx-software.com/2012/02/15/cross-compiling-vmware-view-for-arm-linux-in-debianubuntu/ ?

    Can you verify arm-linux-gnueabi-g++ installed ?

    If it is already installed, you may need to “export CXX=arm-linux-gnueabi-g++”

    Hello,

    I am trying to follow your ‘how to’ but when I try to run the ./configure command I get a message indicating that glib-2.0 and gmodule-2.0 are missing. Any tip on how to install them?

    Thank you

  9. May 13th, 2012 at 08:54 | #10

    @ Fernando
    When packages are missing, you can find them with aptitude and install them with apt-get
    http://www.cnx-software.com/2011/10/08/finding-a-missing-package-in-ubuntu-with-aptitude/

    If aptitude is not installed on your system, simply run:
    sudo apt-get install aptitude

    Hello,

    I am trying to follow your HOWTO to porting VMware-view for ARM ,

    But i got the problem when install Emdebian Toolchain ,

    I run # apt-get install pdebuild-cross dpkg-cross and got the messages below.

    root@debian:/home/test/Desktop# apt-get install pdebuild-cross
    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    pdebuild-cross is already the newest version.
    You might want to run ‘apt-get -f install’ to correct these:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    dpkg-cross : Depends: libdebian-dpkgcross-perl (= 2.5.8) but it is not installable
    libconfig-auto-perl : Depends: libconfig-inifiles-perl but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libxml-simple-perl but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: libyaml-perl (>= 0.57-2) but it is not going to be installed
    pdebuild-cross : Depends: multistrap (>= 2.1.9) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: pbuilder but it is not going to be installed
    xapt : Depends: libconfig-inifiles-perl but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt-get -f install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).
    root@debian:/home/test/Desktop#

    Any suggestion/hint is really appreciated.

    try:

    then make sure the cross libraries are installed before running ./configure

    hello , thanks your help !

    i got the new problem , when run

    LDFLAGS=”-L/usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/lib -lboost_signals” ./configure –target=arm-linux-gnueabi \
    –host=arm-linux-gnueabi –prefix=/home/jaufranc/edev/vmware-client –with-boost-signals=no

    Result : checking for uidna_IDNToASCII in -licuuc… no
    configure: error: libicu is required, but not found. Check config.log for details.

    i had install libicu using ” apt-get install libicu-dev ” , but got the same error messages.

    Any tips or hints? Thanks!

  19. June 18th, 2012 at 20:28 | #20

    @ morris
    As usual you need to check the config.log.
    If uidna_IDNToASCII is really missing, then you need to cross-compile another version of libicu with the function, either a newer one or an older one.

    hi , i had installed another version of libicu but got the same error.
    i tried to trace the “configure” file, i discovered that the problem as below .

    Any suggestion or hint is really appreciated.

    I can’t see the error part in config.log. Maybe the best would be for you to provide me a link with your full config.log, or copy it in pastebin.com.

    Thank you for this tutorial.

    Could you please provide your mail address ?

    @ morris
    I can’t provide help by email (I usually delete those type of emails immediately), but I’m hjappy to help in the comment section.

    I’ve seen your config.log. That’s the pb:
    configure:10893: arm-linux-gnueabi-g++ -o conftest -g -O2 -DBUILT_BY_root -L/usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/lib -lboost_signals conftest.cpp -licuuc -licudata >&5
    /usr/lib/gcc/arm-linux-gnueabi/4.4.5/../../../../arm-linux-gnueabi/bin/ld: cannot find -lstdc++
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

    You need to install ARM g++ toolchain or find out with it can’t find libstdc++.so

    hi , thanks for your help .

    i had through ./configure , make , make install , i copy the files to my target board , run ./vmware-view , i got error message below ,

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    /armvm/bin # ./vmware-view
    ./vmware-view: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_signals.so.1.42.0:
    cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    /armvm/bin #
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    How to install libcurl3 and libboost-signals1.42.0 on target board ?
    i have no apt-get command on my target .

    Any suggestion/hint is really appreciated.

  25. July 3rd, 2012 at 12:59 | #26

    @ morris
    If you don’t have package manager on your board, you may have to cross-compile all dependencies (boost_signal, GTK, curL…).

    What’s your board and Linux distribution ?

    @ morris
    Yep, it seems they don’t have apt-get. I don’t know if it could be setup.
    Some people appear to use opkg on TI8168 instead. I don’t know how to use it however.

    Hi!
    While tried to compile this I got this errors:

    /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/lib/libboost_signals.so when searching for -lboost_signals
    /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/arm-linux-gnueabi/lib/libboost_signals.a when searching for -lboost_signals

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/VMware-view-open-client-source-4.5.0-297975′

    So, what could be wrong with vmware_view-cdkUrl.o ?

    Thank you!

    @Alexander
    Can you try to export LD variable to your arm-linux-gnueabi-ld binary? It seems to use the host ld binary.

    So could this be applied to a chromebook with Debian installed?

    @Asanga Jay
    Sure you can basically do that with any Linux device with a display.

    So, have you actually connected to a VMware View server that uses PCoIP exclusively?

    All the research I’ve been able to do on this says that the open client does View over RDP only. I’m exploring this as an option here at my University, and we definitely need PCoIP support.

    Also, have you tested this on actual Raspberry Pi hardware? (Either Rev A or B?)

    @Chad Douglas
    I did have a look at setting up PCOIP servers, but it seemed overly complicated, and as I understood it it requires a license, so I gave it up. I only tried in the emulator, but anything that works in the emulator should work just fine in the actual hardware.

    hi。I am so sad!When I do : xapt -a armel libicu-dev libcurl3-dev libgtk2.0-0 libboost-signals-dev。
    Package libicu-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Unable to locate package armel
    E: Package ‘libicu-dev’ has no installation candidate
    others is the same!
    please help me !thank you!

    @w-tom
    Things change quite fast in Linux world. At least in Ubuntu, xapt is not supported anymore, and instead people use multiarch: http://www.cnx-software.com/2012/05/02/getting-started-with-multiarch-armel-armhf-in-ubuntu/

    @Serge
    The includes are pointing to some x86_64 header files. This could be the reason.

    I’m not sure these are normal either: -DVMX86_TOOLS=1 -DVMX86_DEBUG=1 -DVMX86_DEVEL
    Looks like your system may try to build for x86 using the arm gcc compiler.
