When I use this command without the -I option, does it check the system ID and timestamp?If so, is it getting that from the elf file? What does the -I option do specifically? If I put a random hex number after the -I then I am still able to download without any error messages, if -I is supposed to check that the current FPGA image matches, then why does this work?
It worked the last time I used it. "-I" checks sysid and "-t" checks the timestamp. I assume you have a sysid component in your Qsys system, correct? You also need to specify the "-s" option: base address of sysid component.[UPDATE] Also note that you have to monitor the return codes. See "nios2-download --help" for more information. Good luck! slacker
Hi, slacker.I had looked at the help, but didn't notice/realise that I had to specify the base address to get it to work. That address also enables the timestamp checking too. Thanks, Mel
