Hello again,

I did some testing and actually found their script is terrible and that whole suggestion I had doesn't work. The changes I ended up making were as follows:

I added three new files based on the wiki:




I added the relevant md5sums to the PKGBUILD.

I added the following install lines right before the Clean Up section that:

install -Dm644 "$pkgdir/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.1/data/xicom/cable_drivers/lin64/install_script/install_drivers/52-xilinx-digilent>

install -Dm644 "$pkgdir/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.1/data/xicom/cable_drivers/lin64/install_script/install_drivers/52-xilinx-ftdi-usb>

install -Dm644 "$pkgdir/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.1/data/xicom/cable_drivers/lin64/install_script/install_drivers/>

install -Dm644 "$srcdir/Xilinx-DocNav.desktop" -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications"

install -Dm644 "$srcdir/Xilinx-SDK.desktop" -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications"

install -Dm644 "$srcdir/Xilinx-VivadoIDE.desktop" -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications"

This seems to have resulted in effectively the same behavior as the driver install script, and also adds the desktop files so they can be located by the system. It all seems to build and install correctly, and I can interface with at least one of the FPGA boards I have access to via the udev rules.

Hello, First off, thank you for getting this installer working for Arch. It's nice knowing I'm not dirtying up my system with this software.

As to my question. I'm wondering if we can have the packaging process invoke the "install_drivers" script mentioned in the wiki to copy the necessary udev rules into place in the package? It should be as simple as invoking the script "$pkgdir/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.1/data/xicom/cable_drivers/lin64/install_script/install_drivers/install_drivers" I think.

Also, I had to manually generate the .desktop files for this as per the wiki instructions. Maybe we can package in premade versions of those into this?

when building: lnx64/jre9.0.4/lib/ can not open shared object file....

libxtst should be added to dependencies.

@xiretza: okay, I understand everything... thank you :)

@bcclsn the point of this is to have a package that can be installed and tracked by a package manager. You can of course just extract it wherever yourself, but at that point there's barely any advantage over using the vendor install scripts directly.

what are the differences between this package and the "WebPACK and Editions - Linux Self Extracting Web Installer"?

can I install this package into an external usb hdd, editing $srcdir and $pkgdir?

thanks in advance

@GPereira: please build in a clean chroot, the installer is way too much of a mess to run on a dirty system.

xterm: cannot load font "-Misc-Fixed-medium-R---13-120-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"

I get this error and fonts are aliased
