I have successfully installed cadence ic 5141 (3cd of base and 3 cd of isr) on redhat 9, but do not know what to do next, i do not know how to set enviroment and set license, even though there is tons of discussion here, I still ge stuck. Could anybody provide detail instructions on how to setup after installation on Redhat 9 or Redhat Enterprise 4 AS? ( I am just a beginner of Linux, I know how to install and also know the very basic stuff, but not very famalir with the linux command) thanks! by the way, the path where I install is : /usr/cadence/

I didn't run IC5141 in RH9 and RHEL4. But I run IC5141 on RH7.3 and RHEL3. icds,icfb and dracula run well on RH7.3.
icds and icfb run well on RHEL3 but dracula get core dump on RHEL3.

how to install cadence ic5141

I have run ic5141 at centos v4.x, this version is equal to the enterprise version of RedHat, and there is no problem at all. As far as I know, there is no need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH since it will be set automatically when you running the script of launching icfb. Besides, you should add the command "export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1" in your bashrc to prevent some error message. Hope this is helpful for you..

ic5141 redhat 9

when you installed 5141, what kind of technology library and process model (such as tsmc 2.5) it comes with and where could i find them after installation? thanks.

For : asueee0
You have to change some variables according to you environemnt. EG :
and do following in /usr/cadence
ln -s tools.lnx86 tools

For Memphis :
Can you succesfully execute DRACULA tools? For example: run jxrun.com that generated by PDRACULA.
Thanks.

installing cadence from disk

I've tried installing Cadence ic5141 in Fedora 4 (as root) using
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 ./SETUP.SH
but I continue getting the below error.

Code:
Setting up softload for lnx86 in /home/Giorgos/Cadence
The following tar errors were detected:

/bin/tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
/bin/tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Could not set up SoftLoad in /home/Giorgos/Cadence

You must have write permissions to install directory
and all its subdirectories
and atleast 10 MB available disk
space in install directory.

system requirements for cadence ic5141

Hi,
I tried installing IC5141 on RH AS4 and at the beginning I got the following message:

Starting up SoftLoad in GUI mode \c

DISPLAY environment variable is set to :0.0\c

If you do not see the SoftLoad console \c
window or the SoftLoad ASCII menu and\c
./SETUP.SH seems to be hanging then kill this \c
process.\c

Set your DISPLAY environment variable to a proper\c
value and manually start SoftLoad

Can anyone give me detailed information on how to set this display variable, please?
Maybe it is because I don't have the color depth set to 8 or 24 bits, but again I dunno how to do this.
The only thing I can set in my display options is the resolution and other things, but I don't see the color depth selection.
I appreciate any kind of help.

I couldn't overcome the NCSU Hit-Kit working problem with IC5141.
