Default Fedora 8 and ISE 9.2

Hi,

I am trying to install ISE 9.2 on a Fedora 8 machine, but have numerous
problems.

Is there anyone that managed to do this?

Hi Michael,

perhaps it would help if you supply some error messages. Maybe someone
has had the same problems with another distro.

regards

Thanks Thomas for the reply, sorry for beeing so late in respondig.

First I did not pass the setup due to some libstd+.. something and I can
not right now check what it was exactly due to I changed from Fedora 8
to CentOS which starts better but have other difficulties.

Using CentOS I can install fine, ISE 9.2 SP3, but XST crashes with a
internal error on a certain project.

So I tried as along shoot to upgrade coregen to the latest(update #2)
which fails with a CRC checksum error (: very annoying.

The environment we have is strictly shell based and the same "Make" is
working fine on Solaris(as always), so there must be some picky things
that Xilinx have done which makes it need RedHat that bad.

We are moving from a Solaris installation to Linux and I have been
avoiding this just because of things like this, Solaris have always been
rock solid, we even use XACT 5.2.1 still on Solaris 11 without any
problems and XACT 5 is old very old

Do you have experience in ISE on Linux?

cheers

Michael

The Xilinx tools are compiled with a relatively old toolchain to support
RHEL3 and 4. To run them on any of the last several Fedora releases,
install the Fedora package compat-libstdc++-33. I've had good results
on Fedora 7 but haven't yet tried them on Fedora 8.

I've had good luck installing ISE9.2 and Webpack under Ubuntu. In fact I
have much better luck with everything under Ubuntu. RH and Fedora takes
a lot of fiddling in my experience. Try Ubuntu.
