General Description: If the following steps are taken while creating an M1 design with Powerview:
1) From ViewDraw, select 'Add->Logiblox'. The LogiBLOX GUI 'Setup' window opens.
2) In the 'Options' tab in 'Setup' window, select only 'Behavioral VHDL netlist'. Click on "OK".
3) In the LogiBLOX GUI main window, select any valid module configuration and start the generation of VHDL model by clicking on "OK" button.
Viewdraw returns with a linker error during running of 'vanlibcreate' on the LogiBLOX library.
On Solaris, it says: ld.so.1: vanlibcreate: fatal: libucb.so.1: can't open file: errno=2 Killed
On HP_UX 10.20, it says: /bin/ld: DP relative code in file <path_to_project>/logiblox.lib/mvlarith. pdr/vantage.o - shared library must be position independent. Use +z or +Z to recompile.
When analyzing LogiBLOX VHDL models using Viewlogic on the Solaris platform add /usr/ucblib to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.
The reason for the HP failure is that the Powerview VHDL analyzer requires the "unbundled" version of the HP-UX C compiler. HP machines with the "unbundled" version usually have /bin/cc linked to /usr/ccs/bin/cc which is the "bundled" version.
