General Description: When I install Alliance 4.1i on an HPUX - 11 machine, the installer reports the following error:
"I/O exception Error. Error - could not read file - try checking your source directory or the location of $XILINX for the existence of all necessary files./$XILINX$/.xinstall/mnf/XPLA3_Core.mod".
After installation, if I target any device from the command line, the following error is reported:
"ERROR:PersonalityModule:7 - Unable to open Xilinx data file for Vendor/Device Module "xpla3". Please make sure that it has been correctly installed before continuing."
Design manager also reports an "Unable to read device XPLA3" error, even though I am not targeting that device.
This error is actually representative of a file delivery issue during installation, as XPLA3 devices are not targetable within Design Manager. (You can target XPLA3 devices from the command line.)
The error message is caused by a file-copying issue that is seen on HP-UX systems when using the conventional "mount" command for the CD-ROM. If you use the following method of mounting the CD-ROM, the installation will complete properly, and the error message will be eliminated. (You must be the root for all of the following):
- Reboot your system.
- If "pfs_mount" is not already running, begin here:
