4.1i Install - Sourcing the "settings.sh" file does not set the environment variables correctly for Bourne Shell users

Description

Keywords: install, shell, Bourne, Bash, settings.sh, environment, variable, HP, Solaris, Workstation, WS

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I source settings.sh in the Bourne Shell, the $Xilinx environment variables are not set correctly. (This problem occurs on Solaris and HP Workstations.)

Solution

This occurs because the "settings.sh" file created by the 4.1i installer has a syntax error. Bourne Shell users should edit the settings.sh file as follows:

NOTE: This Answer Record is applicable to 4.1i CD installations only. This issue is fixed in the 4.2i software release, which is currently scheduled for February, 2002.

Solaris:

#! /bin/sh
XILINX=/export/vol1/xilinx
export XILINX
if [ -n $LD_LIBRARY_PATH ]
then
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${XILINX}/bin/sol:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
else
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${XILINX}/bin/sol:/usr/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
fi
PATH=${XILINX}/bin/sol:$PATH
export PATH

HP:

#
XILINX=/vol/vg00/lvolc/tools/xilinxISE/4.1i/xilinxISE
export XILINX
XKEYSYMDB=${XILINX}/bin/hp/XKeysymDB
export XKEYSYMDB
if [ "$SHLIB_PATH" = "" ]
then
SHLIB_PATH=${XILINX}/bin/hp:/lib:/usr/lib
else
SHLIB_PATH=${XILINX}/bin/hp:${SHLIB_PATH}
fi
export SHLIB_PATH
