Description

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

/lib64/libc.so.6(cfree+0x4b)[0x3403a7276b]

Solution

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.
