Quartus 16.1 crashes when compiling on Ubuntu 14.04

Hi all, 

 

I am trying to compile a test project on Quartus II, namely the Golden Hardware Reference Design for the Terasic DE1-SOC board, but it keeps crashing when compiling the design. The Analysis & Elaboration stage runs correctly, but it crashes afterwards, when running the Fitter.  

 

I have been looking around, and have seen similar problems with older versions. For example, in http://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=47420 there is a crash with Quartus 14.1. I tried the proposed solutions but they don't solve my problem. 

 

The crash report says the following:

Have you tried Project->Clean Project? 

 

I have been plagued by a few crashes in Quartus as well and this option helps. Although Quartus shouldn't get into such a state at first...

Thank you for your reply, The Smith. I didn't know that tool, and it resulted very useful. 

 

After using it and generating again the Qsys project, I run the Analysis & Synthesis and worked correctly!! 

However, after compilation, a different crash happened, with the following report:

Meanwhile, I installed the quartus version 16.0 update 2, and the previous crashes stopped happening. Thus, I think that despite the project was compiled correctly in 16.1, I will turn to 16.0 as it seems more stable and I was able to compile the project without cleaning it before, and any problems were reported. 

 

Thank you, 

Javier.
