Hi all, 

Short question (sorry for repeating it): what is the latest version of the Altera DE2 Ethernet Controller Demonstration and where can I get it?

I'll just say that the version I have is 1.1 and this is the version you can get with the CD downloaded from Altera's website.

What version of Quartus II and Nios II to use? 

I tried twice, v5.1 and v9.0, both failed.  

I followed the instructions below: 

 

1. Copy DE2 demonstration NET module from Altera Demo CD to your computer. 

<cd drive letter>:/DE2_demonstrations/DE2_NET 

2. Read README.txt included in the demonstration design. 

3. Connect the DE2 board with a switch using a network cable. 

4. Connect the DE2 board VGA output with a monitor. 

5. Compile the demonstration module. 

6. Run the design by programming it onto the DE2 board. 

 

But when I was building the project in Nios II, I got the error: 

/bin/sh: fork: Resource temporarily unavailable 

cygpath: can't convert empty path 

/cygdrive/c/altera/90/nios2eds/components/altera_hal/build/system_rules.mk:120: /components/altera_hal/build/gnu_rules.mk: No such file or directory 

/cygdrive/c/altera/90/nios2eds/components/altera_hal/build/system_rules.mk:124: /components/altera_hal/build/gtf_rules.mk: No such file or directory 

make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/components/altera_hal/build/gtf_rules.mk'. Stop. 

 

I searched online, didn't find any solutions. Could anyone help me? 

 

Thanks a lot!
