  1. Please forgive this act of thread-necromancy. I thought it would be helpful to append a brief HOWTO for current Linuxes. Thanks, works like a charm after adapting playtime a bit to work on 64bit Linux Systems. In modern x86_64 Linuxes, remember to do the following first: Download the FTDI linux drivers (64bit or 32bit, depending on your system) from http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htmCopy over the headers:sudo cp ftd2xx.h WinTypes.h /usr/include/copy over the libraries to the correct location and create standard abbreviated links:sudo cp build/x86_64/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/lib64/sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/lib64/libftd2xx.so.1.1sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/lib64/libftd2xx.so.1sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/lib64/libftd2xx.soor if you are still using a 32bit kernel: sudo cp build/i386/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/lib/sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/lib/libftd2xx.so.1.1sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/lib/libftd2xx.so.1sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/lib/libftd2xx.sochange the library to be used to the proper 64bit-lib on x86_64 in playtag/cables/ftdi/d2xx_wrapper.pyif windows: libfile = 'ftd2xx' loader = ctypes.WinDLLelse: libfile = '/usr/lib64/libftd2xx.so' loader = ctypes.CDLL if not os.path.exists(libfile): libfile = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'libftd2xx.so')If you are using ftdi-spi or ftdi_sio, you will now run into# sudo python tools/jtag/xilinx_xvc.py ftdi 0FTDI Driver error in function FT_Open: FT_DEVICE_NOT_OPENED (3)Thus, remember to unload the relevant kernel module first: sudo rmmod ftdi_sioHave fun and thank you, mkarlsson!
