Intaller hans at "generating installed device list" in Linux arch

Jump to solution

Hello.

 

When trying to install Xilinx_Vivado_SDK_Lin_2015.3_0929_1 the installation hans at the message "generating installed device list". I let it run for hours and it never finished. 

 

I'm using arch linux with the following kernel:

Linux Arch 4.2.2-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Sep 29 22:21:33 CEST 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

Also if i kill the installer and try to run any binary from /opt/Xilinx it fails with a missing library message. By example:

 

/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2015.3/bin/vivado

 

couldn't load file "librdi_commontasks.so": libncurses.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

I suppose this happens because my libncurses library is version 6. I can workaround this installing ncurses version 5 from source. But I don't know how to start the design tools from command line, is there any documentation on this.

 

Thanks

Hello @felknight

 

Check this answer record: http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/60111.html

If the above answer didn't help, share the xinstall_xxxxx.log file here located in /opt/Xilinx/.xinstall

 

Thanks,

Vinay

Hi, I've had the same issue in Arch-Linux, and following your hint with libncurses5, I've just installed "ncurses5-compat-libs" from AUR which provides ncurses6 with ncurses5-ABI. After doing so, the installer finished without hanging at "Generating installed device list". Another issue (maybe interesting for Xilinx): The call to "uname -i" within `xsetup` returns "unknown" in Arch. This should probably be "uname -m". If you do not change this, xsetup will give up by saying "ERROR: This installation is not supported on 32 bit platforms." Hope this helps! Best regards, Peter

@felknight: For calling the xilinx binaries, you need to source the settings64.sh script first, which is located in [whereever]/Vivado/2015.3/settings64.sh. However, it seems that these scripts are generated by the installer during this last phase. When fixing the ncurses5 issue, the scripts will be available and calling them from command line works well...

This is still the case for some distros in 2017.3 as well.

 

INFO : Running post-install tasks.......

tail -f .Xilinx/xinstall/xinstall_1510382829539.log
2017-11-11 08:23:43,312 DEBUG: o.p:? - Executing script Generating installed device list: /tools/xilinx/vivado/v2017.3/Vivado/2017.3/bin/vivado [-nolog, -nojournal, -mode, batch, -source, /tools/xilinx/vivado/v2017.3/.xinstall/Vivado_2017.3/scripts/xlpartinfo.tcl, -tclargs, /tools/xilinx/vivado/v2017.3/Vivado/2017.3/data/parts/installed_devices.txt]

The above happens both in GUI and batch mode.

Why isn't the installation done in two stages (internally) if LD_LIBRARY_PATH or similar has to be set to match the installation.

The reason it's hanging seem to be that it can't load it's own libraries during the last stage. While the installation is hanging it's possible to complete it manually:

 

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/export/filestore/tools/xilinx/vivado/v2017.3/Vivado/2017.3/lnx64/tools/clang-3.9/lib /tools/xilinx/vivado/v2017.3/Vivado/2017.3/bin/vivado -nolog -nojournal -mode batch -source /tools/xilinx/vivado/v2017.3/.xinstall/Vivado_2017.3/scripts/xlpartinfo.tcl -tclargs /tools/xilinx/vivado/v2017.3/Vivado/2017.3/data/parts/installed_devices.txt

 

But, when you then break xsetup it will clean up by removing the installation leaving behind nothing but the .xinstall directory.


I remember the good old days on Solaris when the Xilinx installer was basically a tar/cpio style extraction. Then the bloated Java based installer which took hours and hours to do the same job came along...

You can add the library  path before installation (2017.4):

 

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/inst_path/Vivado/2017.4/lnx64/tools/clang-3.9/lib
./Xilinx_Vivado_SDK_Web_2017.4_1216_1_Lin64.bin

Good idea. It works in the 2017.4 release. It's a bit odd that the installation script does not do this internally by itself.

Hello, I confronted the same problem. When I try to generate the installing device list manually. I found that 

/scripts/xlpartinfo.tcl 

 is missing.

The log file shows that 

2019-10-21 17:10:06,697 DEBUG: o.p:? - Executing script Generating installed device list: /home/yujie6/Vivado/2018.3/bin/vivado [-nolog, -nojournal, -mode, batch, -source, /home/yujie6/.xinstall/Vivado_2018.3/scripts/xlpartinfo.tcl, -tclargs, /home/yujie6/Vivado/2018.3/data/parts/installed_devices.txt]

It really made me headache, please help me... I'm using Ubuntu 19.04.
