# Getting Started¶

In order to use Graph L3, the sofware and hardware requirements should be met and the shared library (libgraphL3.so) should be built and linked in the users application.

## Environment Setup¶

BASH version setup scripts are provided. Users should select their proper setup script depending on their shell version.

BASH:

source /opt/xilinx/xrt/setup.sh
source /opt/xilinx/xrm/setup.sh
source /opt/xilinx/xrm/tools/start_xrmd.sh


These scripts set up the following environment variables:

• XILINX_XRT
• This points to /opt/xilinx/xrt/
• XILINX_XRM
• This points to /opt/xilinx/xrm/

## Building the dynamic library¶

cd xf_graph/L3/lib
