11.2 EDK - "***glibc detected*** xpsgui: double free or corruption..."


Upon running XPS in 11.2,you mightencounter the following error in Linux RHEL-3x64:

Xilinx Platform Studio
Xilinx EDK 11.2 Build EDK_LS2.6
Copyright (c) 1995-2009 Xilinx, Inc. All rights reserved.

Launching XPS GUI...
Overriding Xilinx file <images/xps_screen.bmp> with local file
*** glibc detected *** xpsgui: double free or corruption (!prev): 0x000000001312
0060 ***
======= Backtrace: =========


This is error is usually due to a corrupted heap. Preliminary testing showed this to be in relation to the XPS GUI, and none of the back-end implementation tools. The other GUI interfaces work as intended.

There are three suggested work-arounds, in order of preference:

  • Upgrade to 11.5 or the latest release of the Xilinx Design Suite.
  • Run the tools command-line.
  • Set the environment variable MALLOC_CHECK to 0.
