    Cadence tools and older kernels?

    I was wondering if it is possible to install latest Cadence tools such as ic615, mmsim11 and assura4 on newer kernels of RHEL/CentOS 6.x? According to Cadence supported platform matrix only RHEL 3, 4 and 5 and some other are supported which have older kernels and those systems might not support...

    By the way, there was no such problem with Windows 7 only and it started after Linux installation (dual boot) and installing grub on MBR. The laptop is relatively new and it seems to be some other reason.

    FreePDK45 model files

    Yes, the syntax of hspice_nom.include file does not seems to be correct because when I include the individual .inc files the simulation runs fine with Spectre. Any idea for correct format for .include file? Also how to simulate the extracted netlist or Calibre View generated by Calibre PEX?

    Problem with Cadence gpdk090

    Found the reason... it is the OA version incompatibility issue. If you want to use the latest gpdk (version 4.6)... use IC612 or later release. IC610 use OA2.2 but IC615 uses OA22.41. The major change was between IC611 and IC612.
