13.3 EDK, SDK - ld.exe: BFD 2.16 assertion fail

Description

When creating an SDK project in ISE Design Suite 13.3, I get errors similar to the following:

xilinx\13.3\sdk\sdk\gnu\microblaze\nt64\bin\..\lib\gcc\microblaze-xilinx-elf\4.1.2\..\..\..\..\microblaze-xilinx-elf\bin\ld.exe: BFD 2.16 assertion fail /proj/epdsw/gnu/mb_gnu/src/binutils/bfd/dwarf2.c:2058

Solution

A patch can be downloaded for this issue:

http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/applications/misc/ar45171.zip


Installation Instructions:

1) Move or back up the existing $XILINX_EDK/gnu/microblaze directory.
For example, C:\Xilinx\13.3\ISE_DS\EDK\gnu\microblaze
2) Extract this file to the Xilinx EDK installation directory.
For example, C:\Xilinx\13.3\ISE_DS\EDK

This issue only affects EDK 13.3 software, and is planned to be fixed starting in EDK 13.4
