  1. True, it can be a bit of a challenge with 32bit windows. But I still got plenty of software that needs it (but that's a different topic).

    I need to get back to have another look at the 64bit Linux papilio-prog. These descriptions for the compile and install did not fully make sense to me.

    Yes I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 i.e. debian.

  2. Thanks for that.

    I have not used multiarch (yet).

    Since my last post here I have not tried again. In fact I did compile it for 64bit but it did not find he USB serial ports, so I gave up.

    I'm now running the windows version of the papilio-prog on windows (32bit) in a virtual machine.

    And the Xilinx ISE in Linux (64bit). That seems to work ok.

  3. I'm new the papilio and I'm in process installing the tools on Ubuntu 64.

    There is a problem with the ftdi driver.

    I have the 'libftdi-dev'  and 'default-jdk' installed but when running the command line or gui prog tool I get an error


    andreas@andreas-HP-6730b:~$ papilio-prog
    papilio-prog: error while loading shared libraries: libftdi.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    andreas@andreas-HP-6730b:~$ sudo apt-get install libftdi-dev default-jdk

    default-jdk is already the newest version.
    libftdi-dev is already the newest version.

    Any ideas what's going wrong here?

  4. Sorry to ask this silly basic  question.

    I'm new to FPGA and like the concept and tools for the Papilio system. The pro board looks most appealing to me.

    I would like to know if the step by step simple startup tools as described for the 'One' are also as simple when using the 'Pro' board?

    Basically can a beginner like me get the something like the AVR softcore to work with step by step instructions? I've read various posts and docs on it but I still can't quite judge.

    Thanks for the help.
