ensegre Posted November 11, 2021 Report Share Posted November 11, 2021 Has anyone succeeded in some way to get it functional? I'm trying to set up a modern development environment for a project using a legacy PCIe-7852R. That demands ISE 14.7; On windows 10 that in turn is recognized by the FPGA installation of LV2014, but not supported on more recent versions of LV. The solution hinted by NI is to move to a win7 platform, but I haven't found one available at the moment. What I did is, as I usually do, grab all the rpms from the content of the iso I downloaded from https://www.ni.com/en-il/support/downloads/software-products/download.labview-fpga-compilation-tool.html#346211, move them to a /tmp directory and run on them alien --install --scripts *.rpm (and solving some small conflicts on the way). I chose the 2019 version for installing on a machine with LV2019 and 2021 already installed in the same way. At the end of the process I'm left with respectable directories /usr/local/natinst/nifpgacompileworker (15MB), /usr/local/natinst/NIFPGA/ (9.4GB) and /usr/local/natinst/mono (94MB), but neither LV2019 seems to be aware of a FPGA module (would it?), nor I know how otherwise run the compilation tool (e.g. for example to convince the win10 machine that the linux one could act as compilation server). Any idea? How is the FPGA module really working on a supported linux target, rpm based, where it is installed using the proper INSTALL script provided by NI? Quote Link to comment
