I have used the opportunity of the more relaxed days of this Christmas
period to try and run the tutorial at
Wonderful page, works nearly perfectly, thanks a lot.
A few minor comments to the author or useful to other readers of the
1/ using a brand new Debian/testing installation, it seems that the
version of tar will not accept both -c and -s options in its command
I hence edited all entries of openembedded-core/meta/lib/oe/ and
the -ps option of tar with -p. Same for the meta/classes entries.
this has been patched in the latest release of openembedded, but indeed
zync script will not run out of the box on the latest openembedded
and, as advised on the web page, I git commited against a given older
2/ the note about Xilinx tools to Ubuntu users concerning gmake should
bold, huge size, blinking fonts I spent a while being concerned
licensing issues when the FPGA synthesis tool would not run. No
learning to read did the trick. As a side note, it all ran smoothly with
14.7 release of ISE on a 32-bit x86 architecture. I believe there is a
trivial error in the PATH to ISE in which xtclsh should not be included
the PATH definition.
Anyway, thanks for the tutorial, just need to now understand what I did,
at least the whole thing is running smoothly.
Best wishes for the new year, JM
