2.1i Install: Updating a 1.5i solaris install to 2.1i will error out.

Description

keywords: Install, update

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If you select an existing 1.5i directory as the location for the new 2.1i software on solaris,
the installer will pause (see solution 6851) and default to what was in the 1.5i tree. Once
the installer attempts to remove files it will error out because of the permissions set in the
Xilinx tree.

Solution

Change permissions of the 1.5i Xilinx tree before a 2.1i install is attempted.

chmod -R 777 XILINX
