How can I make XACT 5.2.1 work with Mentor Graphics' B.x release?
Although Xilinx did not officially support Mentor Graphics' B.x release until the M1 release, Mentor Graphics tested the XACT 5.2.1/Mentor B.1 combination in April 1996 and found that, for the most part, the two software sets interface reliably with each other. Gen_sch8 and XBLXGS, however, were found not to work properly under B.1 due to problems associated with dynamic linking to Mentor's Design Data Port (DDP).
For information on error messages caused by this incompatibility, see Xilinx Solution 739 and Xilinx Solution 786 for SunOS (fails with "call to undefined procedure"), or Xilinx Solution 1245 and Xilinx Solution 1246 for HP-UX (fails with "Unresolved Propagate symbol").
A patch is available which fixes the problems associated with Gen_sch8 and XBLXGS. The patch may be downloaded from the Xilinx File Download area at:
