When using quartus_ipgenerate I get an error stating "Argument list too long" on Linux.

In the directory where my chiptop.qpf file is I'm trying to use this command specifically: "quartus_ipgenerate chiptop --generate_project_ip_files --synthesis=vhdl --clear_ip_generation_dirs".

 

However when I do this I get two error messages:

/opt/altera/18.0/quartus/bin/quartus_ipgenerate: line 63: /opt/altera/18.0/quartus/bin/quartus_ipgenerate: Argument list too long

 

/opt/altera/18.0/quartus/bin/quartus_ipgenerate: line 63: /opt/altera/18.0/quartus/bin/quartus_ipgenerate: Success

 

 

Any suggestions on how to proceed would be very helpful, thank you.

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/qts/archives/qts-qpp-5v1..., 9.19.12, pg 603. Try again using quartus_ipgenerate --generate_project_ip_files --synthesis=vhdl --clear_ip_generation_dirs chiptop

Thank you for the suggestion GNg, unfortunately that gives the same results as the order in my initial question.

When I run the command with the wording order as you suggested it takes approximately 3 minutes and the only info that is printed to the terminal are the two lines in my original question, nothing else.

Please check if Quartus environment variables in your PC that match the Pro version installation. https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/support/kdb/downloads/rd01292013_416/s...
