Quartus Prime Lite 17.1 on Fedora 27

Just some notes: 

 

- the tar ball unpacks all over the current directory (instead of Quartus-17.1/ say), grrr 

 

- the hang during install is still there (gets stuck in fmutex(), and it happens both during interactive and non-interactive installs 

 

Trying various workarounds, the best solution seems to be to exclude the sub components (help, sim?) during the install, and then install those separately. Just wait for each progress bar to indicate it has finished, then hit cntrl-c. Not doing this results in a messed up licence file.

- The format of /etc/udev/rules.d/51-usbblaser.rules changed breaking jtagd. The new format seems to be: 

 

# USB-Blaster SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="09fb", ATTR{idProduct}=="6001", MODE="0666" SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="09fb", ATTR{idProduct}=="6002", MODE="0666" SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="09fb", ATTR{idProduct}=="6003", MODE="0666"# USB-Blaster II SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="09fb", ATTR{idProduct}=="6010", MODE="0666" SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="09fb", ATTR{idProduct}=="6810", MODE="0666"

- to get the browser working I needed to replace the libraries libstdc++.so.6 and liblzma.so.5 something like: 

 

$ cd .../quartus/linux64 $ mv libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.dist $ mv liblzma.so.5 liblzma.so.5.dist $ ln -s /lib64/libstdc++.so.6 $ ln -s /lib64/liblzma.so.5
