Description: Xilinx recently released the first service pack for the M1_5 software. Due to the size of the update Xilinx has made available a CD version of this update. This solution clarifies any installation issues for the workstation.
Also explains how to create a MYXILINX area.
Issues to be aware of:
1- The installer must be run in a writable directory. Run the install program on the cdrom specifying the full path: (For Example: /cdrom/srvcpk/install)
2- The installer does not support the MYXILINX directory and variable. The installation destination must be a current installation of M1.5_19.
3- The destination path must be specified from the root directory (/home).
The installer does not support the use of a MYXILINX area. This will explain how to create this area.
1- Create the MYXILINX directory in /home/user_name/MYXILINX. 2- cd to the root of the cdrom. 3- cd to the srvcpk/sol or srvcpk/hp directory depending on the operating system. 4- Run the following command: cp -rp * /home/user_name/MYXILINX
Note: Creating a MYXILINX area can result in possible problems for devices that are not installed in the XILINX area. This is because a subset of the required data files for a specific family are installed to the MYXILINX area and not the XILINX area. This results in families and parts showing up in the Design Manager and EPIC as valid families/parts. Using these families/parts can result in errors in the software. To avoid these problems do not run the software on families/parts not installed to the XILINX area.
