Can I ignore these warnings?

Solution

1

Most of these warnings can be ignored, as the files that are mentioned
in the warnings are no longer a part of the Alliance tools. However, one
problem that has been discovered that occurs only on HPs, and only if
the original installation was done with an elite cd key. If this is the case,
you should see warnings such as:

File does not exist: /home/apps/xilinx/M2/virtex/data/v100.spd
File does not exist: /home/apps/xilinx/M2/virtex/data/v150.spd
File does not exist: /home/apps/xilinx/M2/virtex/data/v50.spd

If you are seeing these warnings, there are indeed missing files from the
small Virtex devices. To resolve this problem, please see http://www.xilinx.com/techdocs/8089.htm.

2

If you are using the XDL program, then the message about the
XDL program not being updated from $XILINX/bin/hp is
correct. This is a known problem, and will be addressed in the
next major software release. In the meantime, there are two
work-arounds available to receive the latest XDL executable.

If the userware utilities were installed, this application can be run
from there. This utility is updated with the service pack installation in
the userware location.

The other option is to manually extract this file from the service
pack, and copy it into the $XILINX/bin/hp directory.

3

If you see warnings about files in the $XILINX/synopsys/libraries
or $XILINX/viewlog/data directories, these warnings are occurring
because these CAE libraries were not installed, and are to be
expected.

4

If you are seeing any other 'File does not exist' message, then
the message can be ignored an indeed the service pack install
was successful. These messages will be fixed in a future service
pack.
