I am having problem with LVS. Log file is as follows at the end

After I got this error message, I repeated the extraction again but I get the same error message again and again.

Please heeeeeeeeeeelp!


Running simulation in directory: "/home/alex/cad/LVS".



Begin netlist: Oct 22 18:08:33 2007
view name list = ("auLvs" "extracted" "schematic")
stop name list = ("auLvs")
library name = "alex"
cell name = "amplifier"
view name = "layout"
globals lib = "basic"
Running Artist Flat Netlisting ...
global error:

End netlist: Oct 22 18:08:33 2007

you should save your layout. Then run lvs. It will be ok.

what it does is that during extract you are saving some markers into a layout view - it depends how your deck is written. SO effectively you modify your layout. Save the layout & extract before LVS run and you will be fine

Re: LVS global error:layout has changed in library since ext

Try saving and closing all the layout windows, and the extract again. If it does not work, you should contact some IT guys, because something is wrong.
