How do I fill the parameters of questa_sim.cfg to enable Questasim in Vitis 2020.2 within CentOS 8?

Hello

I installed Questasim in /tools/Questasim and Vitis 2020.2 in /tools/Vitis, in CentOS 8 and I am trying to set up the file questa_sim.cfg, the template of which is as follows according to run emulation section of Vitis Unified Software Development Platform 2020.2 Documentation:

## Final set of additional options required for running simulation using Questa Simulator
[advanced]
param=hw_emu.simulator=QUESTA
[vivado]
prop=project.__CURRENT__.simulator.questa_install_dir=/tools/gensys/
questa/2020.2/bin/
prop=project.__CURRENT__.compxlib.questa_compiled_library_dir=<install_dir
>/clibs/questa/2020.2/lin64/lib/
prop=fileset.sim_1.questa.compile.sccom.cores={4}

I replaced

/tools/gensys/questa/2020.2/bin/

 with 

/tools/Questasim/questasim/bin/

But I do not know what to replace

<install_dir>/clibs/questa/2020.2/lin64/lib/ 

with.

If I run 

find . -name *lin64*

within the path 

/tools

then I get what you can see as follows:

goahead97_1-1617902654700.png

Does this help anyhow?

Does anyone know how I should fill the mentioned line of the template?

Thanks

This property refers to the location of compiled simulation libraries created by the compile_simlib command as discussed under the heading of "Compiling Simulation Libraries" in the Vivado Logic Simulation Guide (UG900), or in the Vivado Tcl Command Reference Guide (UG835).

Xilinx supports max Red Hat 7.8.

Refer Page-11 for supported OS against each simulator
