BUG: Vivado: dont install Windows binaries (eg. msys32) on Linux

Vivado unnecessarily installs lots of windows executables (eg. mysys32) on Linux, which can never be used there and are just unnecessary ballast.

 

Removing them frees about 750 MB (a whole full CD) !

HI @metux,

 

Vivado does install a lot more that is needed to guarantee that files are there for all users.  We could do better if this is a request for a lot of users. But it is not the case currently

This request is on behalf of all GNU/Linux users. Am I really the only one ?

I really wonder what purpose Windows binaries should serve on GNU/Linux systems. Filling up disks for fun ?
