Today I'll show you how to install ISE 13.3 webpack. As I'm a linux user, I'll install it in Ubuntu Oneiric.
First of all, download the installer and the license file from here. You will be asked to login to download it. The installer is pretty large, almost 5G, so it will take some time depending on your connection speed.
Now, in the directory where you saved the file:
$ tar xvf Xilinx_ISE_DS_Lin_13.3_O.76xd.1.0.tar $ cd Xilinx_ISE_DS_Lin_13.3_0.76xd.1.0 $ ./xsetup
- Acquire or Manage a License Key
- Ensure Linux System Generator Symlinks
- Install Cable Drivers (if you have a cable)
Chose where you want to install it. By default it will be installed at /opt/Xilinx/13.3, NEXT and then INSTALL. It will take some time... Take a coffee and come back later! =D
If you want install USB/Parallel JTAG on linux, see this website. Here a bref description why you should use it:
"With this library it is possible to access the cables without loading a
proprietary kernel module which breaks with every new kernel release."
