Can no open platform designer for Intel PAC arria10gx

Dear sir/madam,

I am using Intel PAC arria10gx card.

But I can not open the platform designer GUI correctly, it is just hang without showing up correctly, which makes my further development difficult.

OS:centos 7.1

[root@fig01 ~]# uname -a
Linux fig01 3.10.0-957.10.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Mar 18 15:06:45 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

OPAE has been installed successfully ,and I can run majority examples successfully.

2 PAC cards installed in the server, I am only using one of it for now.

In linux terminal, I can open Quartus GUI, but when I was opening the platform designer, it just hang without showing up correctly as below.

what I have done

1,increase the memory to 8192MB or 16384MB from default, both settings did not solve the issue, problem still was same.

2, restart system  ,does not work.

 

settings and version.jpg

 

because OPAE limit the Quartus version to 17.1, so I have NOT changed Quartus to other version. Currently , Quartus is still the same one,which is automatically installed when I was installing OPAE.

can you give me some suggestion?

thanks

Jim
