Use of adept utility for Arty S7 on Raspberry Pi

Go to solution Solved by jpeyron,



I want to download Xilinx bit file from Raspberry Pi to Arty S7, and adept utility for ARM seems to be the solution for it. So, I tried the following steps and it almost seems to work except the last step. I used the same bit file with Adept System on Windows, so bit file seems to be fine, and I'm suspecting if the adept utility needs some kind of update for the database.

I'm currently using digilent.adept.runtime_2.16.6-armhf.deb and digilent.adept.utilities_2.2.1-armhf.deb.

Any advice will be appreciated.
