  1. Hi all! I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS on ryzen 1700 with B350 chipset. When running waveforms (3.14.3, adept 2.20.2) after selecting device in Device Manager the application hangs for a while and show error box The LED on AD2 doesn't start blinking. However if I use "Force programming" from context menu (whatever it does) the error message is the same, but LED starts blinking. My Analog Discovery 2 is working perfectly fine on the same PC under Windows and on other computers under Windows (I don't heave another Linux machine available). It also was working some time ag
  2. I have generated the bit file from Vivado 18.2 which is installed in windows PC. Now I am trying to generate the SD card image boot file (.bin and .ub files) from petalinux 18.2 installed in a seperate linux PC. I have gone through the ug1144, but I am not able to figure out how to generate. Please share the point wise steps. its very urgent. Thanks in advance.
  3. Hello, I am currently working on a project using the Zedboard and some Pmods from Digilent. As of now, I have booted Ubuntu 16.04 onto the ARM core using the Petalinux tools through an SD card. I have also been looking into the GPS pmod and got the bare-metal example to work from programming the FGPA. Through my personal computer (Ubuntu 18.04), I have been able to interface with the Ubuntu 16.04 on the ARM and the GPS pmod. However, I am a little confused as to how the GPS pmod in the PL communicates with the Ubuntu on the ARM. I would really appreciate some insight on the last leg of th
  4. Hello everyone! I'm trying to install Petalinux on a Cora Z7-10 I followed all the steps described here: but when I try to boot it I get this message: hwclock: can't open '/dev/misc/rtc': no such file or directory after this, I can't write anything in Minicom. As in my folder /dev didn't have the misc folder, following some advice that I found on the net I created the folder and first tried to soft-link /dev/rtc0 and then hard-link it also but none of those worked, I still get the same error. Did anyone go through the same issue
  5. Hi, trying to get new OpenScope MZ (from the original KS, just now getting around to this!) working on Ubuntu 18.04 desktop system. The OpenScope MZ getting started instructions did not work for me. Here's what did thanks in part to @wyojustin Installed digilent-agent but it does not show up in task bar Try to execute digilent-agent from command line. That worked. Plugging in OpenScope MZ to USB has no effect http://localhost:42135 gives a 404 error Try putting in chrome address bar. That works. Now I can start the firmware update, etc
  6. Hi, I'm just getting into programming FPGAs and I've made my first program "blinky light" but I cant get my computer to either find the FPGA when connected or I'm missing a step when I set up Vivado. I've ran the Synthesis, Implementation, and generated the bitstream and everything completed without any errors. I just need to know how to do last part which is to put the code on the FPGA. Thanks! What I'm using/running: Ubuntu 18.04 (OS on my computer), Vidado WebPack, Arty A7 35t, and if it helps I programmed it in Verilog
  7. I finally got a moment to try out my new Openscope MZ. Upon using the digilent.waveforms_3.6.8_amd64.deb package for, the install failed so I backed up a bit and attempted to install the adept.runtime also from digilent.adept.runtime_2.16.6-amd64.deb. This appeared to install, at least the installer reported it installed but upon perusing the system.log I found the following: Dec 21 21:23:52 Thinker gnome-system-lo[24504]: Allocating size to GtkScrolledWindow 0x55b6114b6520 without calling gtk_widget_get_preferred_width/height(). How does the code know the size to allocate? Dec 21 21:39:
  8. I'm attempting the GPIO demo with a new Arty Dev board and running into the following error. I'm following instructions here: Which is good until step #4. And if I uncheck "include bitstream", I get this error on the console: "Cannot write hardware definition file as there are no IPI block design hardware handoff files present" Since I'm new to Vivado development, this puts me at a dead stop. Thanks!
  9. Ubuntu 16.4 LTS install notes > sudo apt-get install libqt5serialport5 ## dependency not met without installing > digilent-agent ## had to start digilent-agent from command line > digilent-agent does not show up in task bar > ## manually access waveforms live via browser > run example from here: --> Take a measurement
  10. Hi I am trying to install waveforms to use the analog discovery box. I am in Linux using Ubuntu and I have downloaded both adept and Waveforms and tried installing both using the terminal and everything seems like it installed but when I search to open Waveforms I can't find it. I'm not sure what is wrong or why they are not installing properly. I'm using the 64 bit for both. Please Help Thanks
  11. Hi, I have installed Ubuntu 14.04.5 on a Virtual machine in my Windows 10 laptop. I installed XIlinx Linux version on Ubuntu. I wanted to try out basic Hello World application before I could proceed further. When I try to create a new application project in Xilinx SDK, it does not give me an option to create a standalone bsp. It shows Linux instead. I have attached a snapshot of it. Could you please tell me what's wrong? I want to be able to create a standalone bsp without any OS.
  12. I have installed Adept 2 and Waveforms 3.3.7 from the Digilent website. I can open the Waveforms software and use it in demo mode with no issues, but the moment I plug in my Analog Discovery 2, the application crashes. The .crash file is too big to upload directly, so I have uploaded it here: This issue is entirely deterministic with my setup, so please let me know if any additional information would help.
  13. Hello, I have an Analog Discovery 2 that I am trying to connect to my system running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I have successfully installed all the supporting software (the adept utilities and runtime) and waveforms 2015. All the software opens fine when my device is not connected, but when I plug in my Analog Discovery 2 and try to run any of the adept utilities or waveforms 2015 (i have also attempted this with waveforms) the software either suffers from a segmentation fault, or crashes. I have tried reinstalling things and using the 32 bit version instead of the 64 bit version with no success
  14. Installed WaveForms 3.3.7 (64bit) on Ubuntu 16.04 recommended adept runtime. However waveforms failed to run indicating that it required a library (libdmgr) requiring installation of adept runtime 2.16.5 (64bit). The adept.runtime should be marked as required instead of recommended for waveforms.
