5.1i ISE - Attempts to open design in ISE Applications causes bus error (core dump) on selected Solaris 9 machines

Description

Keywords: Floorplanner, PACE, ISE, apps, Solaris, Sun, bus, error, core dump

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to open a design on certain Solaris 9 machines with a Xilinx application such as Floorplanner or PACE, the files take a long time to load. The application will then unexpectedly close and report a bus error (core dump) in the terminal window.

Solution

1

This problem is fixed for Floorplanner and PACE in the latest 5.2i Service Pack available at:
http://support.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp
The first service pack containing the fix is 5.2i Service Pack 2.

2

For other applications, you can avoid the core dump by using Solaris 8 rather than Solaris 9.
