Vivado WebPack Edition doesn't have a separate download link. It comes as a part of the Unified Installer. Vivado WebPack Edition shouldn't require any licenses for its functionality. Can you please let me know if you are facing any licensing errors when using the 2020.1 Vivado WebPack Edition? Thanks, Aravind.

The provided tools are compatible with the LabVIEW FPGA Module. Downloading Vivado Design Suite for Apple There is no stand-alone version of the program for Apple operating systems, so you will have to run a virtual machine to download the program. Open the App store and search for 'Parallel Desktop Lite', download the program. Once the program is downloaded.

Downloading Vivado Design Suite for Apple
- There is no stand-alone version of the program for Apple operating systems, so you will have to run a virtual machine to download the program.
- Open the App store and search for 'Parallel Desktop Lite', download the program.
- Once the program is downloaded, open it. It will give you two options:
- Purchase a Microsoft License and run the box on Windows
- Download a Linux OS for free (I chose Ubuntu 16.04)
- Once your OS is downloaded, open the web browser and follow the instructions on the course webpage.
- When the Installer is downloaded, it will download as a .bin file. If you chose a Linux operating system, you will need to go into the terminal and format it to run manually.
- Save your installer to a location you will remember ( e.g. a folder on your desktop labeled 'install')
- Open your terminal
- Use the 'ls' command to view directories in your current location
- Use the 'cd' command to change to the directory holding your Installer (e.g. 'cd Desktop/install')
- Once there, use 'chmod +x filename.bin' to mark the file as executable
- Run the program from the terminal window with './filename.bin'.
- I did not run into this problem, but there is a chance you will have to run it as an administrator with 'sudo ./filename.bin'.
- After you have the program running, you are back on to the instructions from the course website. Carry on from there.
- You are ready to work. Don't worry about building an architecture to a USB port. When a new device is inserted, Parallel Desktop will ask whether it should be introduced to the virtual machine or to your Apple computer. ** HOWEVER ** Vivado may not recognize your BASYS3 board. If it does not, that generally means the Vivado cable drivers did not install automatically. See below for how to install those drivers manually.
I went with the right package this time but ran into a fresh issue.
Install runs smoothly until the 'Post-install tasks' where it hangs indefinitely.
It looks like it tries to run the vivado executable which fails because of a missing shared lib:
That error also occurs when I run the vivado_hls executable myself as well.
I tried to link libncurses.so present on my system (6.0-4) to the one this guy is looking for to no avail (size is different).
Should I try to rebuild the lib myself or should I try to get my hands on the one present on a system they support (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS)?
If that ever works, I think another issue will show up.
The licensing process seems to work by looking at the host mac address under the ethX interfaces. As described in the wiki, I'll need to alter systemd's interface naming scheme.
That is not something I am very fond of. Could it work to create a fake interface with a spoofed mac address?
# ip link add link enp0sXX name eth0 type dummy
# ip link set eth0 address <enp0sXX_mac>
