14.4 / 2012.4 Install - What tools need to have the LD_LIBRARY_PATH set?


What tools require the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and how is this setup within the Xilinx toolset?


The LD_LIBRARY_PATH is automatically set when running the scripts provided within the installation (e.g., settings64.sh). If you do not use these scripts, then you will need to make sure to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH for the following tools:

  • DSP/Sysgen tools
  • ChipScope tools (cs_jtag_info, InserterServer)
  • compxlib (due to 3rd party calls)
