Problem moving project from Windows to Linux

What is the correct procedure for moving a design to the Linux environment?

 

I copied the design directory and .xpr file over to Linux, ran 2017.3 and can see the bd design when I run Vivado.

However when I attempt to change any thing (i.e. add a port to an axi interconnect) it takes at

least 5 hours to complete the task. It does update the symbol on the display within a couple minutes

but takes hours to complete 'customizing IP'.

 

I did update several components to 2017.3 in the process and regenerated output products. But this didn't help.

 

I am stuck at this point.

Re: Problem moving project from Windows to Linux

@jkirby I dont do anything but granted I have not tested 2017.3 yet.

Usually I dual boot and work on both Linux and Windows. I just open the very same project, in the same location, on one or another interchangeably.

Perhaps you are hitting a glitch with the filesystem or hitting swap? 

I would try deleting the runs and cache directories before opening it on the other O/S but it should work without this.

Re: Problem moving project from Windows to Linux

Hi @jkirby

 

As @hbucher pointed out, you should be able to open the project in Linux environment without any changes.

 

>>["I copied the design directory and .xpr file over to Linux, ran 2017.3 and can see the bd design when I run Vivado."]

You can try archiving the project first, then copying zip file to different OS/setup and use it. (File -> Archive Project..)

Re: Problem moving project from Windows to Linux

Sent the design to our FAE and the same problem is found.

I suspect something got lost in translation when updating to 2017.3.

At this point I have reverted to 2017.2 and continuing my work. No

compelling reason to spend more time on this. When the design is

complete I will attempt to do a conversion on a copy.

 

I am working on sending the design to the Xilinx factory so they can

look at it. The FAE is looking into doing that.

 

Thanks for everyone's help.

Re: Problem moving project from Windows to Linux

@jkirby Sorry not to be of more help.

 

The only thing I can think of at this point to help you out is that non-local Linux filesystems (NFS, HPFS) and some local filesystems (notoriously BTRFS) have some locking issues and sometimes report attributes wrong. If Vivado counts on locking or using files as semaphores than you might be hitting a snag. 

Try to copy your project to a standard filesystem (ext4, tmpfs) and running again to see if it persists.
