3.1i Install - UNIX (HP or Solaris) SP3 Install hangs/continually loops

Description

Keywords: 3.1i, Install, Solaris, HP, UNIX, hangs, 3.2.03i, SP3

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
During the 3.1i SP3 Install, the installer seems to loop continuously. What
can I do to fix this problem?

Solution

If a Registration_ID value is not found in the fileset.txt of the Service Pack 3
installer, the installer will fail (loop continuously).

A workaround for this issue is to manually modify the fileset.txt.

A typical fileset.txt would look like:
(The 'XXXXXXXXXXXX' number is your Registration ID you received
when you registered your Xilinx Software).

Solaris

Mon May 22 14:20:56 MDT 2000:: product=Alliance
Mon May 22 14:20:56 MDT 2000:: version=v3.1i
Mon May 22 14:20:56 MDT 2000:: Registration_ID=XXXXXXXXXXXX

If you are using Solaris, and you do not see such a line, the line should be added
manually. For the above example, this would look like:

Mon May 22 14:20:56 MDT 2000:: Registration_ID=XXXXXXXXXXXX

HP

Sat Sep 23 15:43:11 HPT 100:: product=alliance
Sat Sep 23 15:43:11 HPT 100:: version=3.1i
Sat Sep 23 15:43:11 HPT 100:: cd key=XXXXXXXXXXXX

For HP users, the Registration_ID line will not exist; therefore, you should add
it manually. You should copy the cd key line and replace "cd key" with
"Registration_ID."

For the above example, this could look like:

Sat Sep 23 15:43:11 HPT 100:: Registration_ID=XXXXXXXXXXXX

This problem is fixed in the latest 3.1i Service Pack available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 3.1i Service Pack 4.
