In Order to start the EPICS development of the ml403 the SDK and the IDK needs to be installed.

First test on a SuSE stand alone installation. (Why: because of the lack of the cdrom in the Debian Sarge installation) Mount the cdrom however this is done on your system. Execute ./setup and pray. (Without RTFM... with RTFM page 26 ISE release notes and installation guide gives the same....)

marc@lxdv18:/media/dvd> ./setup
/media/dvd/platform/lin/bin/lin
Wind/U X-toolkit Error: wuDisplay: Can't open display


************ setup done! ***************
well OK nothing was done...
As root now:
lxdv18:/media/dvd # ./setup
/media/dvd/platform/lin/bin/lin
connect localhost port 6000: Connection refused
/media/dvd/platform/lin/setup: line 163: 30155 Killed                  $setuploc
/xilsetup $switch $batchfile


************ setup done! ***************

This just shows problems of the setup script.

Klicking on the konqueror just runs the stuff...???!!!

A short google search gave that the ibm guys do have the very same problem Xilinx ISE Setup on non-RedHat Linux by Gero Dittmann.

New start;-)

During the installation process the following stuff is saved in settings.(c)sh:
Install Location : /home/marc/Xilinx
XILINX=/home/marc/Xilinx
NPX_PLUGIN_PATH=${XILINX}/java/${PLATFORM}/jre/plugin/i386/ns4
LMC_HOME=${XILINX}/smartmodel/${PLATFORM}/installed_lin
PATH=${XILINX}/bin/${PLATFORM}
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${XILINX}/bin/${PLATFORM}:/usr/X11R6/lib
Platform Cable USB Driver (Important OS Info Below)
Design Environment Tools

Funny enoug: even with my explicit "Do not install the Cable Drivers" the post installation process tried to do so. Here are the error messages. I'll see what this really means.
marc@lxdv18:/media/dvd> . ./setup

(may be the installation really worked... But we will see;-))

Xilinx is very user friendly during the installation. Ones has to type three times the same stuff, namely the registration number. These are three installation CD which are needed for a full ISE installation.

Disk 2:
Install Location : /home/marc/Xilinx
XILINX=/home/marc/Xilinx
NPX_PLUGIN_PATH=${XILINX}/java/${PLATFORM}/jre/plugin/i386/ns4
LMC_HOME=${XILINX}/smartmodel/${PLATFORM}/installed_lin
PATH=${XILINX}/bin/${PLATFORM}
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${XILINX}/bin/${PLATFORM}:/usr/X11R6/lib
Virtex2/Virtex2P/Spartan3
Virtex/VirtexE/Spartan2/Spartan2E
CPLD

Disk 3: Extremly funny:
marc@lxdv18:/media/dvd> . ./setup
dirname: invalid option -- b
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
Select the installation type: 
                1) 32-bit
                2) 64-bit
1
-bash: /media/dvd//platform/lin/setup: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
It seems that Xilinx is a company which lets the customer debug their software. Especially since the first two discs were working...
