DS-5 and JTAG server

Honored Contributor II

Should the ARM DS-5 Debugger work through an Altera JTAG server? 


In Eclipse, I do the following: 



  1. Select the "Run -> Debug Configurations..." menu item 

  2. Under "DS-5 Debugger", click "New_configuration" 

  3. On the Connection tab, select "Altera -> Arria V SoC -> Bare Metal Debug -> Debug Cortex-A9_0" 

  4. Change Target Connection to USB-Blaster 

  5. In the Connections area, click Browse... 



The Connection Browser window opens and displays an error: 

"The script file ( ) failed during execution:" 




Quartus 14.0 

ARM DS-5 5.18.0 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.6 

ArriaV SoC 



Thanks for any help you can provide.

It does work. The solution was to add the Quartus linux32 directory (where resides) to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. In the bash shell, this is accomplished by executing the following: 

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<Quartus installation directory>/quartus/linux32:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH} 


or, if the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is undefined, just: 

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<Quartus installation directory>/quartus/linux32 


DS-5 Eclipse must then be restarted.
