xbinst: command not found

Jump to solution
Hi everyone!
 
I am trying to install the board files for a xilinx vcu1525, I am following this guide https://www.xilinx.com/html_docs/xilinx2017_4/sdaccel_doc/uqg1504034344539.html but I always get the failure that the command xbinst is not found.

I guess it has something to do with not having set an environment variable, but I couldn't find which one I'm missing. I have tried executing all settings64.sh files within the Xilinx/SDx/2017.4, Xilinx/SDK/2017.4 and Xilinx/Vivado/2017.4 directories, which didn't make a difference. A coworker of mine is working with AWS and she said she needs to execute a sdaccel_setup.sh file that exists in her workspace, but I could not find this file on my computer. I did find a setup.sh within Xilinx/SDx/2017.4/runtime/bin but this file didn't make a difference either.
 
I am working on Ubuntu 16.04 with SDAccel 2017.4 and I have downloaded the SDAccel_Examples. I have the licence for the xilinx vcu1525 board and all free licences installed which are all recognized by the licence manager. I read somewhere that xbinst is a feature of SDAccel, so I assume that I have installed it.
 
I would be very grateful if someone could help me with that problem.
Thanks in advance!

Hi iris_feichtner,

 

    You need to do the settings64.sh from the install directory, not any of the sub commands.

 

Something like: > source settings64.sh

 

Then you can do> which xbinst

 

<Install path>/vivado/SDx/2017.4/bin/xbinst

 

This means you do have it in the path. You need to make sure that you installed the SDX version of vivado.

 

The setup.sh is actually something you would need for running the board afterwards and is generated via the outputs of the xbinst command.

 

Try looking in /bin.xbinst to confirm it does exist. If you have it sourced right, but don't have a license you can call xbinst --list and get a blank result to confirm that.

 

Regards,

 

Evan

If at first you don't succeed, try redefining success?

@evant"Try looking in /bin.xbinst to confirm it does exist. If you have it sourced right, but don't have a license you can call xbinst --list and get a blank result to confirm that."

There is no file like this, how to get it. and on doing which xbinst i am getting this:

no xbinst in (/opt/Xilinx2018.2/DocNav:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/gnu/microblaze/lin/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/gnu/arm/lin/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/gnu/microblaze/linux_toolchain/lin64_le/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/gnu/aarch32/lin/gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/gnu/aarch32/lin/gcc-arm-none-eabi/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/gnu/aarch64/lin/aarch64-linux/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/gnu/aarch64/lin/aarch64-none/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/gnu/armr5/lin/gcc-arm-none-eabi/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/SDK/2018.3/tps/lnx64/cmake-3.3.2/bin:/opt/Xilinx2018.3/Vivado/2018.3/bin:/usr/lib64/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin)

Note: I have done this in Vivado Installation Directory: source settings64.sh
