2.1i Install: Permission denied when updating a 2.1i install

Description

Keywords: install, update, permission, chmod

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Install is setting the permissions on installed files with permissions other than those specified by the user's umask. If
an install is done with the umask set to 777, but the permissions throughout the XILINX tree have been retained
from the file permissions on the CD. This caused us problems when trying to install additional software in a XILINX
tree that was installed by another member of the group.

Solution

Use chmod to change permissions of the XILINX tree before the update is attempted.

example:

chmod -R 777 XILINX
