10.1 EDK - "ERROR:ConstraintSystem:8 - The file 'system.ucf' could not be opened for reading"

Description

Keywords: permission, UCF, read, chmod

When I implement my design created by Base System Builder, I run into the following error message:

"Applying constraints in "system.ucf" to the design...
ERROR:ConstraintSystem:8 - The file 'system.ucf' could not be opened for reading."

Solution

This issue is related to permission related with the project directory for certain machines only.

To work around this issue:

1. Open xbash
2. Change the permission of 'data' directory as follows:

> chmod 777 data

3. Go into 'data' directory and change the permission of system.ucf file as well.

> chmod 777 system.ucf
