10.1 Install - When installing on Linux/Solaris, the installer prompts for a password

Description

After downloading and unarchiving a service pack or IP update, I type "setup" and then am prompted for a password.

Solution

This can happen if your $PATH does not have "." in the beginning. In this case, when you type "setup", the Xilinx install executable is not found first. 

To work around the issues, type "./setup" or edit the $PATH environment variable and add "." to the beginning.
