Assembler Crashes at 90%, Quartus Prime 20.1 Lite on Linux Mint 20

Hello!

I could really use some insight on reccurring, consistent error that prevents me from compiling my project.


Everytime I attempt to compile my project through the GUI, the assembler crashes with the following stack trace:

Hi Ben,


Can you attach your QAR file here? I'll try to reproduce the error to better understand your issue.


If it is confidential can you please attach the design file by replying to my email that I have sent you?


Best regards,

Nurina

Hello Ben,


I was able to run your design files without any Assembler crash using Windows 10. I suggest you use a supported OS system.


Please refer here to find the supported OS: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/download/os-support.h...


I hope you find this helpful.


Regards,

Nurina
