Install SystemC in Cygwin

Note: This tutorial works with Cygwin 1.5.25-15 and SystemC 2.2.0.

Installing Cygwin

Hop over to cygwin's website and follow the installation procedure. I would recommend to do a full installation.

Installing SystemC

SystemC's class library and event based simulator can be downloaded from the website. You need to create a login before you can download the files.


export CXX g++

export CC gcc

I used the following procedure to install it:

  1. Download systemc-2.2.0.tgz and write to a suitable location
  2. Unzip the file using tar zxvf systemc-2.2.0.tgz
  3. Navigate to the systemc-2.2.0 directory
  4. Create a subdirectory as per the INSTALL file called objdir
  5. Navigate to the objdir directory
  6. create the destination directory mkdir /usr/local/systemc-2.2
  7. Execute ../configure --prefix=/usr/local/systemc-2.2
  8. Modify the default stack size SC_DEFAULT_STACK_SIZE which you can find in /systemc-2.2.0/src/sysc/kernel/sc_constants.h from 0x10000 to 0x50000

Line 57: const int SC_DEFAULT_STACK_SIZE = 0x50000;

  1. Build systemc using make pthreads
  2. Install systemc using make install
  3. Check the installation using make pthreads_check, you might get the following error:

/usr/local/systemc-2.2/include/systemc.h:175: error: `std::wctomb' has not been declared
/usr/local/systemc-2.2/include/systemc.h:177: error: `std::wcstombs' has not been declared

  1. If this is the case then open /usr/local/systemc-2.2/include/systemc.h and commend out the 2 lines as shown below:

Line 175: // using std::wctomb;
Line 176: using std::mbstowcs;
Line 177: // using std::wcstombs;

  1. re-run make pthreads_check and all tests should pass

How to use diffent keyboard than English in Ubuntu Server 14.04 (or 14.10) with Gnome Core

Even in my laptop, I still use Ubuntu Server because it seems more stable than Ubuntu Desktop.

At the first time of using Ubuntu Server, you may have some issues, especially if you are not familiar with Linux command, because there is no GUI in Ubuntu Server by default.

There are some ways to install GUI to Ubuntu Server.

I am choosing Gnome Core.

To install Gnome Core:

sudo apt-get install xorg gnome-core gnome-system-tools gnome-app-install
If you have used Ubuntu Desktop before (with Unity), you may find something different in Gnome Core.

1. The notification bar now in on the bottom but not top.
 To see the notification bar, move your mouse to the bottom of the screen.

2. There is no Text Entry anymore, so if you are not native English speaker like me and want to install another typing application such as ibus to type in your own language, it may be pain.

In Gnome Core, to configure your typing, press Windows button (if there is this key in your keyboard), or click to Activities at…

Installing tensorflow on Mac OS 10.11

Tensorflow ( is the open source deep learning library from Google (

Installing Tensorflow is not easy on Mac if you follow exactly the installation instruction on the homepage. I have no idea why. I have error then error while trying to install Tensorflow with pip, with virtualenv, or even with Docker.

However, with Anaconda (, it will be easy. The trick is you should download the wheel file and install it offline other than retrieving it online as suggested by Tensorflow homepage.

So, with anaconda for python2 installed, I did:

# create a new environment with sklearn installed, up to you
# if you want a pure Python, replace scikit-learn by python
conda create -n tensorflow scikit-learn

# activate the new environment
source activate tensorflow

# download the wheel file
