M1.3 Installation: Operating System, Memory (RAM), Swap Space and Disk Space Requirements for Targeting Xilinx Devices

説明

Keywords: operating system, OS, memory, swap, disk, space, requirements, RAM

Urgency: Standard

Description: The following is a recomendation on supported operating systems,
amounts of memory (RAM), size of swap space (virtual memory) and disk space
required to properly run the M1 software.

Note: This information is meant to be a guideline. Some designs may require
more memory and/or swap space especially if they contain several "tight"
timing specifications. Disk space sizes are also approximate. Actual disk
space may be slightly more or less than specified here.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(1)
The DynaText browser and its online books are not included. If you install
more than one platform, the data directory is only installed once.
For example, if you install for SunOS and Solaris, the total disk space is:

data (12MB) + SunOS (76MB) + Solaris (77MB) = ~165MB
Note: You must run the installation program twice to install two platforms.

(2)
Installed once when any number of XC4* software components are installed. For
example, if you install the XC4000EX, then all files in the xc4000/data and
the xc4000/bin/<platform> directories are also automatically installed even if
this software component was not selected as part of the install.

(3)
The files not beginning with a numeral in the xc4000e/data directory and the
xc4000e/bin/<platform> directory are also installed when the xc4000l is
installed.

(4)
The files not beginning with a numeral in the xc4000e/data directory and the
xc4000e/bin/<platform> directory are also installed when the xc4000ex is
installed.

(5)
The files not beginning with a numeral in the xc4000e/data and the
xc4000/bin/<platform> directories are installed when the xc4000xl
is installed. In addition, the files not beginning with a numeral in the
xc4000ex/data and the xc4000ex/bin/<platform> directories are also installed
when the xc4000xl is installed.

(6)
Platform-specific files are installed for XC7300 and XC9500 devices. If both
XC7300 and XC9500 are installed, the platform directory is only installed
once.

Example 1: Core Technology Installation -- Single Sun Platform
Assume that you have installed the Sun platform, all the subcomponents for
the XC4000XL, and the online help and documentation browser subcomponents.

Disk space requirements are as follows:

Xilinx Core technology = ~12MB (Data) + ~76MB (Sun) = ~88MB
xc4000xl = ~77MB (Data + Sun files)
non-numeric xc4000e/data files + Sun = ~3MB + ~.5MB
non-numeric xc4000ex/data files + Sun = ~3MB + ~.25MB
xc4000 = ~1.2MB (Data) + ~2MB (Sun) = ~3.2MB
Online Help (~10MB) + Documentation browser (~11MB) = ~21MB
-----------------------------------------------------------
Total = ~88MB + ~77MB + ~3.5MB + ~3.25MB + ~3.2MB + ~21MB = ~196MB

Example 2: Core Technology Installation -- Multiple Platforms
Assume that you have installed the Sun and HP platforms, all the
subcomponents for the XC4000EX, the XC4010E, XC4013E, and the entire
documentation software component on the core technology CD.

Note: You must run the installation program twice to install two platforms.

Disk space requirements are as follows:

Disk space requirements are as follows:

Xilinx Core technology = ~12MB (Data) + ~76MB (Sun) + ~77MB (HP) = ~165MB
xc4000ex = ~20MB (Data + Sun files)
non-numeric xc4000e/data files + Sun + HP = ~3MB + .5MB + .5MB
xc4010e, xc4013e = ~7MB (Data) + ~1MB (Sun + HP files) = ~8MB
xc4000 = ~1.2MB (Data) + ~2MB (Sun) + ~3MB (HP) = ~6.2MB
Documentation = ~52MB
-----------------------------------------------------------
Total = ~165MB + ~20MB + ~4MB + ~8MB + ~6.2MB + ~52MB = ~256MB

Example 3: Core Technology Installation -- Single Solaris Platform, CPLDS
Assume that you have installed the Solaris platform, the XC7300, XC9500,
the online help, documentation browser, and Tutorial files.

Disk space requirements are as follows:

Xilinx Core technology = ~12MB (Data) + ~77MB (Solaris) = ~89MB
xc7300 = ~1MB (Data + Solaris files)
xc9500 = ~1MB (Data + Solaris files)
CPLD = ~20MB (Solaris)
~10MB (Online Help) + ~11MB (browser) + ~9MB (tutorial) = ~30MB
-----------------------------------------------------------
Total = ~89MB + ~1MB + ~1MB + ~20MB + ~30MB = ~141MB
