I'm trying to compile a new preloader file using SOC EDS 15.0 on win10, but an error occurred while executing the "make" command.
tar zxf /cygdrive/c/altera/15.0/embedded/host_tools/altera/preloader/uboot-socfpga.tar.gz
tar: Error opening archive: Failed to open '/cygdrive/c/altera/15.0/embedded/host_tools/altera/preloader/uboot-socfpga.tar.gz'
make: *** [uboot-socfpga/.untar] Error 1
Just to confirm, have you run the SoC EDS as admin? You can right click and select "Run as Admin".
The error pops up after the make often causes by the file is not accessible, thus you need to run the SoC EDS as admin.
If this does not fix the issue let me know.
I have run the SoC EDS as admin, but it doesn't work. I don't understand what happened, but another way seems to work for me.
Commet out lines 219/220 of the Makefile in the spl_bsp folder.
# $(RM) $(PRELOADER_SRC_DIR)
Run tar zxf /cygdrive/c/altera/15.0/embedded/host_tools/altera/preloader/uboot-socfpga.tar.gz
then executing the "make" command from SoC EDS.
It seems that the file is still in archive, that is the cause of the issue.
I recommend that you use the latest version of SOC EDS 18.1 std if you are using Cyclone V SoC.
