Don't know how to install Xilinx ISE - clean CentOS 5 install

Postby alien-w » 2009/11/12 10:08:55

Hi,

I cannot seem to install Xilinx ISE on my fresh CentOS installation.
I have downloaded the webinstall package from Xilinx and tried to run xsetup (double clicking on it and choosing "Run"), but nothing happens. Then I have tried double clicking again and choosing "Run in terminal", but only for a second the terminal window opens and then closes. I have then tried to go to terminal and with su got cd to the folder and trying to do ./xsetup but again nothing happens.
The first method (double click and "run") worked in my other Linux distributions but I don't know what to do here.
Can you please help?

This is the code of xsetup:

Code: Select all
#! /bin/sh
export PATH || exec /bin/sh "$0" $argv
# Get the path to this exec
setuploc=`dirname "$0"`

unset LANG
platform=`uname -s`
   
# run setup executable depending on different platform
if [ "$platform" = "Linux" ]
then
    machineType=`uname -m`;   # Get the machine type
    if [ "$machineType" = "x86_64" ]
    then
   # 64 bit
        if [ -f "$setuploc/bin/lin64/xsetup" ]
        then
            "$setuploc/bin/lin64/xsetup"
        else
            echo "Product is not supported on \"$platform $machineType\" platform."
        fi
    else
        if [ -f "$setuploc/bin/lin/xsetup" ]
        then
            "$setuploc/bin/lin/xsetup"
        else
            echo "Product is not supported on \"$platform $machineType\" platform."
        fi
    fi
else
   echo "Un-supported platform: $platform"
fi



Thank you for your help!
Regards,
Janez

i went:

[janez@localhost ~]# su
Password:
[root@localhost janez]# cd Desktop/webinstall
[root@localhost webinstall]# sh xsetup
[root@localhost webinstall]#

so again, nothing happened.

When I tried sh xinfo (another file in the same folder, dunno why it is really for) it said:

********** xinfo done! ***********

and that was it

Any other ideas?

Try to disable SELinux first and then install Xilinx ISE (At least it has worked for me using Xilinx ISE 10.1 on CentOS 5.3).

did you use scp -r to copy the installation folder from some other machine? scp will follow symbolic links and copy over the files that are linked which then breaks the installation (presumably it breaks the relative paths in some of the script files)
