ISE and BaseX for Linux?

Started by Pepper Orlando September 21, 2004
Though I will be using the webpack that ships with the Spartan-3
intially, I am somewhat interested in the Linux version of BaseX or
Linux that I've been reading about. With version 6.3, is the Linux
version now native (not WINE)? Also, does it provide all of the
features of the Windows version?

ISE has been Linux native since 6.1. The reason that webpack isn't offered in a Linux native version has to do with the licensing of package used to port the Windoze GUI to Linux. There was a thread, in this newsgroup, on this topic a few weeks ago, supposedly Xilinx is moving to a new toolkit in 7.1 which hopefully won't have the same licensing problems as the current toolkit.
