Can't install Vivado 2020.1 on Linux

Jump to solution

Hello,

I met problems with installing Vivado on my Ubuntu machine.

I launched installation with Xilinx_Unified_2020.1_0602_1208_Lin64.bin, but it stopped almost immediately and remains in this state without advancing:

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,

@pavel_47 ,

Also make sure you have the latest Java update installed?

@dpaul24 , apologies for jumping into this conversation while you are trying to help out on this issue. It just that i was involved on this issue with other forum threads, so to safe time and effort, i have decided to jump into this conversation and provide feedback on this known issue, and i hope this is OK with you

@pavel_47 , These is due to the usage of an Unsupported version of Ubuntu in your case (Ubuntu 18.04.5).

When using an unsupported OS, there is a Pop Up that should have been populated to indicated the fact that your version of OS is unsupported. That pop up has an issue in 2020.1 However we have now identified and addressed this in the next version of Vivado (v2020.2 and newer releases).

You may want to check these related Forum threads.

https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Installation-and-Licensing/Installation-of-Vivado-2020-1-under-Centos-7-8-fails/m-p/1115482#M29484

https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Installation-and-Licensing/Xilinx-Unified-Installer-2020-1-Exception-in-thread-quot-SPLASH/m-p/1114416#M29446

https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Installation-and-Licensing/Installing-Vivado-2018-1-on-Fedora-28/m-p/855996#M21928

As already indicated above, please be aware that this behaviour with Exception in thread "SPLASH_LOAD_MESSAGE" is addressed in the next 2020.2 version of Vivado (and newer versions). You should not see this behaviour with the newer Vivado/Vitis releases.

However, once again, installing Xilinx tools on one of the unsupported Operating Systems is not officially support, which means Xilinx didn't test Xilinx tools on these unsupported OSs, so there could be other issues on the line, even if you can successfully install Vivado/Vitis on an unsupported OS.

The recommendation is always to try and use one of the supported OS as provided in UG973: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2020_1/ug973-vivado-release-notes-install-license.pdf

Thanks Anatoli,

Does this mean that there is no way to install any version of Vivado on my Ubuntu machine?

Sincerely,

Pavel.

Ha! Indeed it worked: it was enough to simulate VERSION = "18.04.4 LTS (Bionic Beaver)" in /etc/os-release and the installation was launched.

@anatoli , no problem.

I thought @pavel_47 had already realized the problem since he posted, PRETTY_NAME="Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS"
