Solution

1

Virtex High Reliability package updates can be downloaded from the following ftp locations:

For PC:

http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/M2.1i_updates/virtex_cb228.zip

For Workstation:

http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/M2.1i_updates/virtex_cb228.tar.gz

To install the patch, you must have 2.1i software on your computer.

2

Installation instruction for PC:

unzip virtex_cb228.zip in $XILINX area.
This should copy the v100.pkg, v300.pkg, v600.pkg, and v1000.pkg in
$XILINX/virtex/data directory

3

Installation instruction for workstation:

There are two ways to install the patch on the Workstation:

1: Copy the files on top of the existing XILINX install area
cd $XILINX
gunzip virtex_cb228.tar.gz
tar xvf virtex_cb228.tar

2: Use MYXILINX variable:

a. Create a directory in your home directory for the patch, for example:
mkdir Patch

b. cd Patch
gunzip virtex_cb228.tar.gz
tar xvf virtex_cb228.tar

c. Modify the 2.1i implementation script to add the MYXILINX variable.
For example, if the patch is saved under /home/paul/Patch/
then MYXILINX should be set to:

setenv MYXILINX /home/paul/Patch

d. Modify the PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH(solaris machines) or
SHLIB_PATH(HP machines) to include the MYXILINX variable.

The following is an example of a Solaris script:

setenv XILINX /tools/xilinx/2.1iSP3
setenv MYXILINX /home/paul/Patch
set path = (${MYXILINX} ${XILINX}/bin/${m1bin} $path)
if $?LD_LIBRARY_PATH then
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH
${MYXILINX}:$XILINX/bin/${m1bin}:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
else
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH ${MYXILINX}:$XILINX/bin/${m1bin}
endif
