8.2i EDK - PlatGen ERROR:MDT - chipscope_ila_0 (chipscope_ila) - couldn't change working directory


After I added ChipScope IBA and ICON core in a design, PlatGen runs successfully under WinXP OS but not under Linux. I receive the following errors: 


WARNING: vhdl is not supported as a language. Using usenglish.

To resolve this issue, please check to see if the LANGUAGE environment variable exists. 

For example: "LANGUAGE: en_US:en_GB:en" 


If it exists, please unset the LANGUAGE environment. 

Type following in CShell: 


unsetenv LANGUAGE
