AR# 6819: 2.1i Install: Permission denied when updating a 2.1i install
2.1i Install: Permission denied when updating a 2.1i install
Keywords: install, update, permission, chmod
General Description: Install is setting the permissions on installed files with permissions other than those specified by the user's umask. If an install is done with the umask set to 777, but the permissions throughout the XILINX tree have been retained from the file permissions on the CD. This caused us problems when trying to install additional software in a XILINX tree that was installed by another member of the group.
Use chmod to change permissions of the XILINX tree before the update is attempted.
