Same exact thing happened to me. I tried many different approaches,
and asked lots of questions here. The only solution I've found
is to run a floating license server on a Windows machine. Not the
best solution since it requires another computer, but it works!
I have confirmed that the Windows version 7.1 license will
work with the Windows version 7.2 Synp!ify Pro.
They must have changed something in the 7.2 Linux version
because a Linux 7.1 license will not work...
I'm currently running redhat 7.3 because all the EDA we
use is "certified" for redhat 7.x.
I run Syn*psys, MTI, Synp1ify, etc...
Do these run, or can they be made to run, on Gentoo Linux??
I heard people claim that most linux EDA applications are designed
for, and tested on, redhat...
You can get a beta release of Redhat's "Null" release.
(It will be either RH 7.4 or 8.0, no one knows for sure
It looks very nice, with updated gcc compilers and
gnome 2.0, among other new features.
Don't bother with the beta (it's still buggy), but if you
can wait a month or so it...
I have x-hdl 3.2 for linux installed under Redhat 7.3.
For a long time I couldn't even get it to run. I was
getting an "XTEK_HOME" variable not set error message
(even though I was setting the variable correctly)
I finally figured out that you can't (at least I can't) run
x-hdl under the BASH...
bad pointer access closing vish
The error message your getting doesn't seem
to imply a license file problem.
I'm running 5.6a with the modeltech daemon
with no problems. Have you tried running that
How are you generating your license?
Which version of 2002.05 did you install?
There are "special" syn*psys binaries for RH 7.x
that will allow the GUI products to work.
The standard 2002.05 linux package will only
work with RH 6.2.
(This applies only to the GUI interfaces. If you
want to work exclusively in shell-mode than...
error: could not create fontset for font
I wonder if it's an issue with HDL Des1gner, then.
In my case, the program _seems_ to run fine, and the
menu items, text, etc. look OK. I just hate to see those
Does RH 6.2 use the xfs font server to manage fonts,
could not create fontset for font
I don't know if this is a RH Linux 7.3 problem, or an
HDL designer problem, but when HDL designer starts up
I get the following error message:
Error:Could not create fontset for font
