PetaLinux 2012.2 License Confusion Again

I have installed an old legacy PetaLinux 2012.2 folder as well as ISE 13.2.  When I try to run an old PetaLinux script, I get the error "ERROR: No valid petalinux features!"  I got past this in the past, but I can't remember exactly how.

 

PETALINUX LICENSE: Somehow, I got a node-locked license for old PetaLinux 2012.2, but of all may many electronic notes, I have lost the notes for this.  How did I get it?  Did I use the License Manager and then "Acquire a License" bullet "Get My Purchased License(s)" and search for an old legacy license online?  I'm getting hung up with my new CentOS 6 VM when I try to do this, so I'm pausing to wonder if this is the way I need to do it.  Otherwise, please refresh my memory on how to get an old legacy PetaLinux license for the CentOS 6 VM I recently created.  (FYI, was using Ubuntu 16.XX, but now going back to old linux.)

 

ISE LICENSE: I also installed ISE 13.2.  Am I going to need yet another license for that?  I don't remember.  Note that with my prior Ubuntu VM, I set up access to our license server first, then got the node locked PetaLinux license.  I don't know if that was necessary.  Am I going to need to connect to that license server to get access to our existing ISE license?

 

Thanks,

Helmut

Re: PetaLinux 2012.2 License Confusion Again

Hi Helmut

See if you have "petalinux.lic" under petalinux-v2012.2-final/etc/license/. If exists, try copying this to ~/.Xilinx and then it should  work.  It appears that this new "no-license" version of the PetaLinux tools needs to search in that license directory or the settings.[c]sh should copy it over to ~/.Xilinx

 

If you still have any concerns, try contacting Xilinx sales distributor in creating the service request with us.

 

 

Best Regards

Re: PetaLinux 2012.2 License Confusion Again

@shabbirk thanks for weighing in on this.  I have a different, prior forum post on this question that remains unanswered.  It provides more detail of the problem.  Please be aware that I do INDEED have both an ISE license and a petalinux license installed.  I seem to be getting a THIRD kind of license error, related to petalinux.  I am providing the link to this post further below.

 

Before you go looking at the link further below (and please do) be aware that I was previously running an Ubuntu VM.  I got the petalinux license for it.  But it was new Ubuntu and makefiles were a little incompatible.  Nevertheless, I worked through many other problems using that VM.  Finally unable to get any further, I made a CentOS version 6 VM, that should be closer to what petalinux 2012.12 ran on.  I gave that VM the ***SAME*** mac address as the Ubuntu VM.  So I've been trying to use the SAME license file as I was using on the Ubuntu VM. ------> Is it possible that the license file half-works because the mac address is the same, but half does NOT work because it's CentOS rather than Ubuntu?

 

Please see https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Embedded-Linux/PetaLinux-2012-2-License-Problems-again/m-p/798711#M22131

 

EDIT: Note that the CentOS VM was unable to successfully run xlcm, which is why I changed the mac addr to match the other vm and then used the other vm's license.  How was it unsuccessful?  xlcm loaded a browser then after I provided my identity, it had some failure I can't recall at the moment.
