I am unable to get the bsp-editor to make the preloader for the embedded SOC in windows 10. The make file fails.

https://www.intel.com/content/altera-www/global/en_us/index/support/support-resources/knowledge-base...

 

Here is the article that shows the error condition with the bug ID. It is just that your described workaround does not work. What version of the tool or what procedure should I use to generate the preloader? Which version of windows should I use?

 

The fstabin file described in the article does not exist. There is a similar fstab file.

Hi,

 

The stated workaround is for Quartus and the SoC EDS is 18.0. They are supported for both Windows 7 and Windows 10. However, for SoC EDS it is not supported in Windows 8.1.

 

Which version of Quaruts and SoC EDS that you are working with?

 

Regards.

I tried both 18.1 and 18.0 standard editions and got the same result. I got a strong recommendation from my FAE to run at least the SoC EDS with Linux and avoid Windows 10, so that is what I am trying now. You have a bunch of problems with the version 18 ubuntu as well, but 16.04 release seems to work a little bit. At least I can launch the programs.

 

I would like a bit of an explanation of the workaround. What was the problem? What was the intent of the fix? What were the added lines of code intended to accomplish? With this information, I could bring in some experts from other departments to fix your make file.

With version 18 ubuntu, you need to upgrade the libpng12 library dependency to libpng16. I don't know if pulling the libpng12 out of another release and dumping it into version 18 will work. Ubuntu 16.04 uses libpng12 so everything worked on that one.

Hi,

 

The problem is with the Cygwin permission in Windows system. The directory for the fstabin is as you mentioned the ftsab file. The command is to fix the permission errors. Once the it has been added, it should fix the make file error.

 

If it is not, we recommend that you use Linux system for the time being.

 

Regarding the libpng12 library, we are aware of the issue and since the libpng12 is no longer available via the "apt-get method", download and install libpng12 from this link:

https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/amd64/libpng12-0/download

 

Regarding missing libraries information you can refer here:
