I get the following on running quartus after a fresh install of this package:

zsh: abort (core dumped)  quartus

What's the problem ?

Warning: Intel has replaced ModelSim with Questa in this version. Even the free version now requires a valid license file obtained from Intel. If you do not wish to do so, I uploaded the last version of ModelSim as

@vityafx, creating the plugdev group is now optional. I adjusted the udev rules to always allow access to the logged in user.

@promach, I haven't tried, but you can try s/QuartusLite/Quartus/, and adjust the list of .qdz appropriately. You also need to substitute questa_fse with questa_fe if you want the non-Starter Questa.

Which modifications do I need to make for quartus STANDARD instead of quartus LITE ?

Got this error:

Failed to prepare transaction: target not found: quartus-free-devinfo-cyclone

The plugdev group doesn't exist. I suppose it should be created during the package installation, shouldn't it?

You're right, I didn't even think about clearing my cache. Thanks!!

@klanc, are you absolutely sure this is not just a corrupted download? The md5sums come directly from Intel, and I just confirmed that QuartusLiteSetup is correct.

EDIT: Got a corrupted download, ignore this

@gwatcha, the latest HLS compiler is only available from the Pro distribution, but says it doesn't require an additional license. I packaged this version. Can you try to see if it works?

@g8sqh, I can't reproduce. Did you run the jtagd in quartus/linux64 by accident? The one in quartus/bin is a shell script that sets up LD_LIBRARY_PATH, among other things. That one runs fine.
