OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=256m; support was removed in 8.0 free(


eclipse-nios2 does not open on Ubuntu 20.04.  Seems like eclipse requires jdk-7 according to the other post eclipse issue.  This is an obsolete java version that has security issues. openjdk7 is not readily available nor easily installed.

Win-7 does not support eclipse-nios because WSL is not supported on Win-7.

Ubuntu * does support quartus but does not support eclipse-nios2 according to

Win-10 : eclipse-nios2 has a Makefile bug - so not patches are required and new warning issues with build

Red Hat is the only linux OS that supports quartus and eclipse.  RedHat Linux Enterprise 6 is pay for license. 

Is there any open source OS that support both Quartus Prime Pro and eclipse-nios2 ?

Hello Lorne,

I run Quartus and Eclipse Nios ll on Ubuntu 18,04. It's open source and it works!
