6.1i COREGen - LFSR COREGen GUI does not launch from Project Navigator on Solaris platform


Keywords: Linear, feedback, shift, register, LFSR, Coregen, launch, core, GUI, generate, IP, Solaris, ISE

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
On a Solaris 2.8 platform a user tries to create a new LFSR COREGen Core from Project Navigator. The user selects Project -> New Source -> IP (Coregen &Architecture Wizard) and then selects LFSR under Basic elements - Registers, Shifters & Pipelining. Upon selecting Next -> Finish to complete the launch, nothing happens. Repeating the process results in a message stating that there is a "coregen_lock" file found in the project directory.


A problem with the launch of the Linear Feedback Shift Register COREGen GUI was found. The problem is manifest only when launching the Core from Project Navigator with the Project -> New Source process.

A work-around is to either:

1. Open COREGen standalone and generate the LFSR, or
2. If there have already been cores added to the project, highlight one of these cores and select the "Manage Cores" process.

This issue has been seen only on the Solaris Platform and has been fixed in the first IP service Pack for COREGen 6.1i.
