./Xilinx_Vivado_Lin_2013.2_0616_1/xsetup --uninstall threw a popup

Please help me uninstall Vivado 2013.2 from Fedora 17 x86, I would like to reinstall it somewhere else, also I recall

deselecting SDK but when I reinstall I would like to include SDK this time.

 

When I tried to run the install again, it says to uninstall first.

 

In the subject line is the command I tried as advised by  xsetup -h  for uninstall.  The screenshot of the popup is attached.

If memory serves me, I believe you want xsetup -uninstall

No, $ ./Xilinx_Vivado_Lin_2013.2_0616_1/xsetup -uninstall
throws the same popup,

 

Besides the help shows the option, --unistall

 

 ./Xilinx_Vivado_Lin_2013.2_0616_1/xsetup -h
Usage: Allowed options:
  -h [ --help ]         Produce help message
  --uninstall           Remove installed products
  --copy_registry arg   Copy project preferences from previous release
  --noencrypt           The project preference copy file is not encrypted

On Linux you can typically just delete the entire Xilinx installation directory and re-run the install script from the tar file to re-install somewhere else.  We do this frequently on RHEL 6.4 with no issues, but your results may vary....

Thanks, the only leftover after rm -fR

was the re-install popup dialog,

Program Group Name Xilinx Design Tools/Vivado 2013.2 is already in use

Suggested value is Xilinx Design Tools 1

 

Presumably if the xsetup --uninstall would work instead of throwing a popup, then the dialog above would not happen during the re-install.

 

But thanks again, this time I've got Vivado installed in a better place and used the download that includes SDK.

I just tried the following command and it works

 

cd /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2013.1/.xinstall/bin/lin64

./xsetup --uninstall

 

Use lin/ instead of lin64/ if you are on 32-bit system.

 

Hope that helps
