The more research I do, the more confused I am. Apparently Xilinx only supports Red Hat and Suse Linux. None of them are free unfortunately, while the link in the previous post is about installing Webpack on Ubuntu - which is not supported but it's free. So which OS should I use? I'm skint and would rather use Ubuntu... Any ideas?

ISE Webpack installs and runs well for me in Debian squeeze (wheezy repos) 32bit and Chakra Project 32 bit.
Btw, platform cabel driver fails to install in both platforms, so u need to use alternate programing solutions for your devices if exists.

Some reported success with Ubuntu. Might download Debian then. I had partial success with the install: managed to get xsetup running and everything went fine till the end where I got the following error:
Could not create destination path /opt/Xilinx/13.4/ISE_DS
I went back to the 'Select Destination Dierctory' where /opt/Xilinx/13.4 is chosen by default. Any ideas?

I've tried to find Debian's 32 bit version but the source pages no longer exists. After a long and extensive research it seems Debian Squeeze is no longer available. I still can't install Webpack, please help!!!!!

U can download every version of Squeeze in debian.org's download page: squeeze download page
In my installs, i installed ISE webpack to a directory in a mounted NTFS drive, because of the enormous storage space requirements. This drive is mounted with R/W premissions to ordinary users, no SU required.

SuSE IS free: www.opensuse.org
That's not SuSE, that's OpenSUSE. It's not the same, although OpenSUSE is based on SuSE. Xilinx specifically requires "SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 (32-bit and 64-bit)". Xilinx may or may not work on other versions due to version changes, missing programs, etc.

I'm stuck in the same part you were, I managed to run the xsetup, but I cannot make the part of the settings32.sh . Once I type "ise" on the terminal, nothing happens.
Can you tell me what steps did you use?
Thanks in advance
