Install - How do I find out which libraries are required to run Vivado tools in Linux?

Description

I have installed Vivado on my Linux OS (CentOS, Ubuntu, RHEL, SUSE) but when I try and open Vivado or other Vivado tools it crashes. 

Am I missing a library?

Solution

To check which required library or libraries are missing on a Linux system, you can use the ldd command recursively. 

A Perl script that handles the recursive ldd search, named ldd-recursive.pl is available at:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/recursive-ldd/

To use the script:

1) Perl must be installed on your system.

2) For valid switches and syntax:

perl ldd-recursive.pl

3) The Vivado Environment needs to be setup beforehand (settings64.sh needs to be sourced).

4) Execute the script as follows to get a unique list (no duplicates) of the required libraries needed:

perl ldd-recursive.pl /<vivado_install_location>/<vivado_version>/bin/unwrapped/lnx64.o/vivado -uniq

NOTE: This script was not created or supported by Xilinx and therefore any issues or questions related to running the script should not be directed to Xilinx.


***DocNav requires 32-bit libraries that may not be installed with the OS. The specific 32-bit libraries needed are as follows:***

  • lib32stdc++6
  • libgtk2.0-0:i386
  • libfontconfig1:i386
  • libx11-6:i386
  • libxext6:i386
  • libxrender1:i386
  • libsm6:i386
  • libqtgui4:i386


To install these libraries in Ubuntu:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install <package_name>
