4.1i Install - Mentor libraries on the CAE Libraries CD hang and report "java.lang. OutOfMemoryError"


Keywords: Mentor, install, Mentor, 12565, CAE, Libraries, CD, Mentor, hang, WS, Solaris, HP, java.lang.OutOfMemoryError, permission, permissions,

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
During the installation of Mentor Interface Libraries from the CAE Libraries CD, the process hangs at 16 % complete during the file permissions operation.


The Mentor Libraries contain a very large number of files, and the Java Installer can run out of memory.

The work-around is as follows:
1. Launch the installer, and let the file copy operation complete.

2. When the "restoring file permissions" operation begins, select CTRL-C to stop the installer. At this point, all device libraries will have been copied over, but the file permissions have not yet been reset.

3. Open a command window and "cd" to the directory where the Mentor Libraries are being installed (i.e., /home/xilinx).

4. Execute "chmod -R 777 mentor". This will change the permissions of the /home/xilinx/mentor directory, as well as all directories recursively under it.

Once the "chmod" operation is complete, the installation is complete.

Please note: If you are installing to a server, this area may be protected, and an IT Administrator may be required to perform this operation.
