My first baby steps with the XuLA 50 board and Xilinx ISE on Ubuntu 11.04

1 week ago I didn’t know what FPGAs are, but yesterday I received my XuLA 50 board and I started with this great tutorial.

I got my LED to blink first because I had some GLIB problems and I was not able to simulate the design. But I found if I copy some lib files from my system over the the ISE install and do some kind of clean all generated project files it solved the issue…

I was in this (../Xilinx/13.2/ISE_DS/ISE/lib/lin64) directory and I copied and did override libstdc++ with this command: cp /usr/lib32/libstdc++.so.6.0.14 libstdc++.so (all three)

It would be nice if I could run the XSTOOLS also under Ubuntu, but it will not work with Wine. Right now I use a VM. I think there was a Linux download, but the link is broken.
