Problem generating bitstream on ISE/XPS/SDK on ubuntu 10.04

Hi All

 

          This is my first  use of EDK tools ie XPS/ISE.I was trying to do a simple example to start of with so that i get accustomed to the EDK thing using microblaze processor.

I am using Xilinx 12.1 ISE edition.I was following steps given in EDK concepts,tools,techniques guide(12.2) to get a hold of it.

 

       I had created system.xmp file.After export hardware design to SDK when i double clicked generating program file in ISE(project navigator) to get the netlist and bitstream i got this error.

 

The project file (XMP) has changed on disk.
Xilinx Port::Process Exec Failed:2
ERROR:EDK -  
   Error while running "gmake -f System.make netlist".
ERROR: synthesizing XPS module failed!

 

 

 

  I think it failed to synthesize and couldn't execute following steps.

 

  Please acn anyone  help me out and tell where i might have gone wrong.I am new to this.

 I just wanted to test a example and test using ISS(Instruction set simulator) so that i can start  doing complex stuff.I don't have board right now.

   So can i use ISS to test the stuff and see the output. ??

 

 

 

Regards

Thej

You may want to move this another forum that's more tools on Linux.

 

This forum is for Embedded Linux on a Xilinx platform as opposed to running tools on a Linux host.

 

Thanks.

Re: Problem generating bitstream on ISE/XPS/SDK on ubuntu 10.04

the problem may be due to a not available gmake on ubuntu machines.

 

that is why bitstream generation works in EDK (EDK calls make), but not in ISE (ISE calls gmake)

 

execute the following command in a shell

 

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/make /usr/bin/gmake

 

this should solve your problem.
