6.1 EDK, XPS - "Id.so.1: _xps: fatal: libSTL.so: open failed: No such file or directory" when running XPS on Solaris


General Description:

When I launch XPS on a Unix machine, the following error occurs:

"% xps

ld.so.1: _xps: fatal: libSTL.so: open failed: No such file or directory

Killed edk"

How do I fix this error?


Moving the "install" directory without modifying the "setup.csh" script might cause this error. To resolve this issue, make sure that the "$XILINX_EDK/bin/sol" directory is set in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. Also, make sure that it is in front of the ISE "$XILINX/bin/sol" directory of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This environment variable should be set correctly by sourcing the "setup.csh" script, found in the installation directory. If the EDK install directory was moved, the "setup.csh" might need to be modified.

To see the value of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable, type 'echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH'.

See the "edk_getstarted.pdf" guide located in the docs directory for more information on setting up Xilinx EDK on UNIX.
