Hi all,

I tried installing IC5141 on FC7. Since this is the first timeI was installing Cadence, following the guidelines provided by EDABoard(thanks a lot) and some googling, I could see the icfb window

It gave me the following error in the terminal though it opened icfb window:

Warning (gdmiExecGetConfig): Got stderr from tdmgdmconfig command.
Error (gdmForkExec): Unable to run the tdmgdmconfig command: No such file or directory
sh: cdsServIpc: command not found
sh: cdsServIpc: command not found

But the Library Manager didnt open. I want this as a standalone installation.

What should I do.



You must to use linux which recommended of cadence!
Fedora is testable version!


I also install IC5141 on FC7. And it works well.
I donot occur the problem.

please list your .cshrc file ic5141

Hey haoshs,

Please let us know what are the configurations you did after installing them with regard to the Cadence setup script and .cshrc file.

Thanks in advance

gdmiexecgetconfig warning

Thanks all,

I got the installation right. Problem with my .cshrc file. Since I am new to this installation, took time to learn what Cadence does.

Once again thanks all

It is NOT a testable version. NOT SINCE FC5.

ic5141 fc7

Hello All,

I dont understand what you mean by testable version etc. But I can assure you that with the little experience that I have in installing Cadence, it should be possible to install Cadence on Linux distros, with some tweaks. Please donot worry about RHEL and other stuff. If you try it, you will succeed in getting the information.

libxp so rpm fc7

Hello coolarm85

I solved the problem this afternoon, I guess it should be caused by not installing cadence in default directory(/tools/cds5/tools.lnx68).



well, i have never installed in this directory. but i think this is one of the problems with the cadence installation. errors seems to be random and not reproducible:)

fc7 sort open failed


I am trying to install cadence 5141 on FC8. And have the following problems. Can you tell me how you managed to install in FC7. By the way I have the installation media in 3 CDs. In CDROM1 there is this SETUP.SH file that I am suppose to run to install the program. Thanks.


When I run SETUP.SH from the installation directory I get this error.

The following tar errors were detected:

/bin/tar: Removing leading `/' from member names

Could not set up SoftLoad in /cad01/cadence/ic

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

But I proceeded to the installation directory /cad01/cadence/ic, and
found that install/bin.lnx86 is installed there, and softload is
inside this new directory. I ran softload and got to the part on

Updating package installation information.......

Checking data files...

and then it gave me an error

Executing control programs (pre-load) ...
sort: open failed: +3: No such file or directory
expr: syntac error

Hi n-david,

I had installed FC7 using Installscape and the download from the website. I didnt have the CDs. Anyway, I installed it to a /usr/local/ic directory to which I had rwx permission. I have read of recommendations like installing into a /software/ic directory and stuff. Thats left to you. But i never got this error. Though I have tried installing it thrice:)

I remember having read a similar error posted by someone else on a website.You might want to search for it. Just dump a part of the error message into google and search. Your answer could be on EDAboard itself.

All the best

cadence usr3 or usr4

the version of linux must at least be 8.2.

tdmgdmconfig command

RHEL 2.1/3.0 are the baseline Linux verions for IC5141.

got stderr from tdmgdmconfig command

I understand what was the problem now. I tried to install IC5141 on an unsupported OS. I describe my experience here so that others can learn from it.

linux fonts cadence fedora core 10 x_openfont

U need to edit ur .bashrc

unable to run tdmgdmconfig

I see. As the installation instructions didn't include editing of the .bashrc, I didn't try that. I will keep that in mind when I next install IC5141 on newer OSes.
