ISE 12.1 - Xilinx settings script does not work with symbolic links to installed directory on Linux machines

Description


On my Linux machine, I have a symbolic link in my bourne/bash environment that I use to get to my ISE Design Suite location. The environment does not get setup, even though I execute the settings scripts via ./<ISE_DS_SYMBOLIC_LINK>/settings[32|64].sh.

What do I need to do to setup my environment?

Solution


The script does not work correctly if it is executed using a symbolic link. Instead, you can source the script, or launch the settings script without using the Symbolic link:

source ./<ISE_DS_SYMBOLIC_LINK>/settings[32|64].sh

OR:

cd <ISE_DS_SYMBOLIC_LINK>
./settings[32|64].sh
