License file not recognized for questasim - Quartus 22.1.1 on Ubuntu 18.04

Hi,

 

I have some trouble with my license Questasim generated by SSLC.

I use last version for linux (Quartus and Questa 22.1.1) .

I set up my license variable LM_LICENSE_FILE correctly but when I try to lunch ./vsim (questa) on terminal I have an error message, or when I try to lunch  license setup on Quartus,  nothing is recognized.

 

I really have many issues to implement my architecture using linux and Quartus.

 

Thank you,

 

Dorian

Hello

 

Welcome to Intel forum. But before setting up Questa, would you kindly help check, whether your machine is supported or not (OS) by referring to link below:

https://www.altera.com/support/support-resources/download/os-support.html

after that could you help re-confirm the Questa setup referring here          https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683472/21-4/specifying-the-license-for-the-software.html

Hello,

 

Thanks for reply.

I have Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS so I think it's not supported refering to you table, but I installed Questa Starter edition which is not in it. So is it supported ?

 

If not, what can be the solution on this version of Ubuntu to have a complete simulation tool with Quartus 22.1.1 ?

Hello,

 

I checked the license.dat I have generated with SSLC and I found that there is just a INCREMENT field decommented and no FEATURE field as I found here : https://cdrdv2-public.intel.com/666293/quartus_install-683472-666293.pdf part 5.2.3.

I have just :

INCREMENT intelqsimstarter mgcld 2024.01 24-may-2024 uncounted \

Maybe that can explain the error I facing through.

 

When I try to regenerate a license file, I have now 2 INCREMENT field without FEATURE field.

It still doesn't work.
