7.1i ISE - "Error while loading shared library: libXrandr.so.2: cannot open shared object file" displays when using Red Hat 7.x/8.0


Keywords: RH, Redhat, GUI, Qt, Constraints, Editor, CORE, Generator, app

When attempting to open some Xilinx Applications on Red Hat 7.x/8.0, I receive the following error:

"Error while loading shared library: LibXrandr.so.2: cannot open shared object file"



Red Hat 7.x and 8.0 are not officially supported operating systems, and do not contain all of the files needed to run Exiling ISE design tools successfully.


Upgrading to Red Hat 9, although still not supported, might resolve the issue.

NOTE: Xilinx anticipates that ISE 8.1i will also not successfully run on Red Hat numbered versions. Xilinx recommends that all Linux customers use Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0.
