Vivado 2019.1 installation stalls on openSUSE Leap 15.1

Jump to solution

After I had problems with Ubuntu 16.04 and SDK menus, I installed Opensuse Leap 15.1.

I have seen messages here that imply that someone has done that before.

Unfortunately, when it gets to "Generating the installed device list", it just seats there. The animation on the right continues but the prograss bar stops.

Any ideas ? Is there a log somewhere to try to figure out what is the installer doing ?

Maybe I can install less devices, but can they be added later ?

Thank you very much in advance.

Thanks Vinay.

The info provided didn't directly helped me but, by following the links from there I got to this blog :

https://blog.lazy-evaluation.net/posts/linux/vivado-2018.3-buster.html 

Talks about exactly the same problem. Essentially, libtinfo.so.5 is missing/not visible in my system.

I then installed libcurses.5 from Yast and created a symbolic link (as root) :

 

ln -s /usr/lib64/libncurses.so.5.9 /usr/lib64/libtinfo.so.5

After that the installation went ahead without hanging.

 

I then discovered that libtinfo.so.5 was already in /lib64. So, a symbolic link directly to that would have possibly worked too.

Hi @oceanlogic 

You will find the install log file at ~/.Xilinx/xinstall/xinstall_xxxxxx.log.
