Does anyone know the process of installing FPGA Adv on Linux based
system? Does FPGA Adv be have Linux support or not?
I have to install modelsim and leonardo spectrum on linux machine
separately as well. please suggest if anybody has already done the

Don't know, but emacs vhdl-mode does and is much more useful. And free.

Modelsim runs well an linux, but requires a floating license. Leo has no linux support. Precision does, but requires a new license. -- Mike Treseler
Hi Fahad,

Yes but only if you have a floating license and Modelsim SE/LE in your 
bundle. Spectrum is not supported under Linux but Precision is. HDL Designer 
works OKish under Linux but you might have to tweak the fonts to make it 
looks nicer.  Also installing P&R tools is still a bit of a hit and miss, if 
you have Redhat WS 3.0 (or WhiteBox/CentOS 3.5) you should be OK.

Thank you Hans, Mike for these helping suggestions. I have already got
FPGA ADv installed on WIndows machine but want to move Linux. I am a
bit apprehensive because this move is gonna cost me alot of time unto
things get smooth.
I have Msim SE in my bundle. And have nodelock license (put in server),
to which rest of systems on network pick the license. We have 5
licenses.
Still looking for suggestions,
