I am trying to run smartxplorer on a 64-bit Debian machine; I am aware of the fact that smartxplorer is a 32 bit executable and I have installed the compatibility 32 bit libs ( ia32-libs ); however, smartxplorer does not seem to understand that it runs on a 64-bit Linux machine - I am getting the following warning/error:
WARNING: No host list file specified. Using only local machine.
WARNING: Unsupported platform on remote host safetest. SmartXplorer is supported only on 32-bit or 64-bit Linux platforms. Removing host from hostlist.
ERROR: No hosts available to run remote jobs. Ensure that remote commands can be launched using rsh or ssh on the hosts specified in the hostlist file. Please refer to SmartXplorer documentation on configuring these hosts for running remote commands.
Here is the outpur of the uname command:
testuser@safetest:/opt/Xilinx/14.6$ uname -a
Linux safetest 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.46-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux
CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit, 64-bit
Byte Order: Little Endian
On-line CPU(s) list: 0-23
Is there a patch for smartxplorer that I can apply to allow it to work with Debian 7.1? It used to work with older versions of Debian ....
Any other suggestions?

Debain is an unsupported OS for Xilinx tools. There could be compatibility issues.
Which version of smartxplorer are you trying to use?

I am using the version that ships with ISE 14.6
testuser@safetest:~$ smartxplorer -help
Release 14.1+ (UNKNOWN) SmartXplorer
Copyright(c) 1995-2010 Xilinx, Inc. All rights reserved.
smartxplorer <designName> -part <partName> [options ...]
The same version used to work well w/ version 6.x of Debian.
It looks like smartxplorer relies on umane to figure out the "hardware platform", but that is not a relible way of figuring out the hardware platform ;-(
