AR# 893: QuickSim/Solaris: Could not load object file xxx.ss5_b, no such file or directory
QuickSim/Solaris: Could not load object file xxx.ss5_b, no such file or directory
Keywords: QuickSim, Solaris, RAM model, ROM model
QuickSim, while running under Solaris, may issue the following error:
'/MANIC/sp_ram32': Problems loading binary '$LCA/gen_lib/sp_ram32/ sp_ram32.ss5_b' Could not load object file "/tools/ds344/gen_lib/sp_ram32/sp_ram32.ss5_b" No such file or directory
This error will occur on all RAM and ROM modules in a design.
Unlike standard QuickPart models, Xilinx RAMs and ROMs are described using "behavioral language models" (BLMs), which have as their core a binary executable file. This file is named differently for each platform: xxx.sss_b for SunOS, xxx.hpu_b for HP-UX, xxx.ss5_b for Solaris, etc. Under Solaris, QuickSim thus expects to find an xxx.ss5_b file where none exists.
