Listed below are 2 methods of obtaining the pfs_* code needed
for HP 9.0* and 10.01 platforms used for installing software
from the Xilinx CD.
The Portable File System (PFS) allows you to access a variety
of CD-ROM file systems including the Xilinx CD-ROM, which is a
RockRidge Interchange format. Use PFS if you are installing
Xilinx software onto an HP-UX system.
PFS handles exporting of CDROM filenames, and is the most
versatile solution to the CDROM compatibility problems in
HP has an agreement through Young Minds, Inc,
(http://www.ymi.com) to make available pfs code for the 700
and 800 series systems running 9.xx and 10.xx.
For HP-UX 10.* users, PFS has become a part of the core
operating system with the release of HP-UX 10.10.
If you are a HP-UX 9.* user in need of PFS, the PFS software
can be obtained from
or from the Application Software CDROM if you have software
support. This code is available on the Nov-Dec 1995
application CDROM and tapes for the 700's, and on the Jan-Feb
1996 Application CDROM/tapes. The media can be purchased from
your local HP sales rep at any time for a nominal fee.
