Some time ago I have switched from Linux to FreeBSD because Linux is a mess. I can emulate linux applications, I could run ISE 11 on my BSD using this technique. ISE 12 however was is missing some dynamic libraries, but I found them on the installation "lib/lin" subdirectory, then added this directory to /usr/compat/linux/etc/ls.so.conf.d/xilinx-ise12.co
Solved! Go to Solution.

This problem is caused by improper linking the dynamic libraries path into Xilinx ISE - the libraries are on the LDPATH but they are not loaded by ISE, so the solution is to link them where ISE wants them to be. I have posted solution on FreeBSD forums  and have working Xilinx ISE 13.1.
Still I have no working cables. The cable drivers are even not working on Linux, as the kernel API again changed... this is why Linux is a mess. Why dont you release version for FreeBSD instead Xilinx? :-)
Is there any way to make cable working on FreeBSD???

Anyway, please provide dynamic libraries within the installer package as those libraries ase VERY helpful in running linux binaries on non linux systems...
