Headless install

Jump to solution

In the case where we want to set up a build server for Vivado and the like, I'm not seeing any installer packages that don't require an active gui session. That being the case, are Linux installs such that you can just copy/paste the entire Xilinx directory from one machine to another and it'll just work, or is the installer actually doing something in terms of configuration?

Hello @zwabbit,

 

Please note that Xilinx requires each machine that our tools are installed on to have the End User License Agreement (EULA) accepted by the installer. The end user license agreement (EULA) for ISE/Vivado Design Suite of software tools must be accepted by each Licensee (as defined in the EULA) at least one time by running through the installer GUI or batch mode. After a Licensee has accepted the EULA and installed one copy of the Software (as defined by the EULA), such Licensee may install additional copies of the licensed Software in any convenient manner including by copying the installation folder to other machines, provided that Licensee complies with the EULA in all respects. If this is a Windows installation, once the Software is copied to a new machine, the "shortcutSetup.bat" command should be run from the common subfolder to setup desktop icons, and start menu items.

 

So basically, once you have the application installed on one computer (and have read and accepted EULA at least one time), you can then move the whole install (e.g. /home/…/Vivado/2017.x) to your other Linux/Windows machine.

 

Note: shortcutsetup.bat launches a GUI at it's completion. If you are concern about this stalling their script, you or the end user can run this script to setup the shortcut when you first use the machine rather than the script running it.

 

I hope the above is clear.

 

Kind Regards,

Anatoli
