7.1i EDK - LibGen "ERROR:MDT - ERROR FROM TCL:- xilkernel () - bash.exe in generating libraries"

Description

Keywords: cygwin, cygwin1, dll, path, cygnus, multiple, copies, reside

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After running "Generate Libraries and BSPs" aka LibGen in XPS, I receive the following Windows pop-up error:

"ERROR:MDT - ERROR FROM TCL:- xilkernel () - bash.exe: warning: could not find
/tmp, please create!"

Actually, you do have a /tmp directory. There are other possibilities of error message such as the procedure entry point __getreent that could not be located in the dynamic link library cygwin1.dll.

Solution

In this case, it is necessary to check to see if there are multiple cygwin.dll files in your machine and the versions of them.

Search your registry directory for "Cygnus Solutions" to make sure it points to:
%XILINX_EDK%\cygwin
