BlueCat and Spartan 3E starter kit

Hello all,


I am trying to use Bluecat Linux distrubition on Spartan 3E starter kit. But generating libraries make this problem


ERROR:MDT - linux_bc54 () - integer value too large to represent
       while executing
   "format "0x%08X" $param_value"
       ("STD_LOGIC_VECTOR*" arm line 6)
       invoked from within
   "switch -regexp $data_type {

ERROR:MDT - Error while running "post_generate" for processor microblaze_0...
make: *** [microblaze_0/lib/libxil.a] Error 2


Apparently is the parameter XPAR for BRAM has a value  a long hex value.


I have two question?

 1 - Is bluecat can work on spartan3E starter kit? I cannot see any xprarmeters.h in linux tree for microblaze?

 2 - Is there any working linux for microblaze under spartan 3e?



Thanks in advance

Re: BlueCat and Spartan 3E starter kit

I am also facing the same error.

In order to debug, I added some puts in the scripts.

The integer value that is too large is "0x000002FC000002FC000002FC000002FC000002FC000002FC000002FC000002FC" in my system. Parameter name is C_CTRL_BRAM_INIT_xx

I found out that this value is defined in "__xps/DDR_SDRAM_mpmc_ctrl_path_params.v" and in "hdl/ddr_sdram_wrapper.v" files.

Since these files are automatically generated, I have not tried to modify them.


Can anybody suggest the solution?

Maybe we are missing somthing while configuring the IP's.


Is this someway related to the "mark to initilise BARM" under software projects->default: microblaze_0_bootloop?
