4.1i Virtex-II MAP - "FATAL_ERROR:Pack:pktv2rpmutil.c:167: - Bad slice restriction."


Keywords: MAP, fatal, error, pack, pktv2rpmutil, 167, bad, slice, restriction, RLOC

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
MAP fails while processing Virtex-II RPMs, reporting the following error:

"FATAL_ERROR:Pack:pktv2rpmutil.c:167: - Bad slice restriction. Process will terminate."



To work around this problem, remove RLOC constraints from the affected instances in the design. If the macro can be identified, this can be done using a wildcard attribute in the UCF file as follows:

INST "path/to/macro/*" USE_RLOC=FALSE ;


This problem is scheduled to be fixed in the next major software release after 4.1i.
