XPS 8.2 "UPDATE Tcl procedures"?

Started by JD Newcomb July 7, 2007
Hi, all.

Can anyone tell me what "Running UPDATE Tcl procedures for OPTION
PLATGEN_SYSLEVEL_UPDATE_PROC..." means, and what platgen actually does
to the .tcl files?

I'm wondering if this could be the cause of an issue I'm having with
BRAM instances. Before, I could run a Base System with 1 or more
MicroBlazes with any available size Local Memory each, and no other
extra peripherals or software (merely for testing purposes), and it
would build the bitstream just fine. Now, XPS generates this error
with the same Base System straight from the Wizard (ML310 board
v2p30ff896-6, MicroBlaze, 100MHz, no debug, any size Local Memory, no
cache, no FPU, no extra peripherals, no extra software beyond the
bootloop):

"Mapping design into LUTs...

ERROR:MapLib:482 - Blockram ramb16_s9_s9_0 is a memory mapped blockram
generated
   for the Microprocessor. However it is not connected properly,
causing it to
   be trimmed. Please connect up all memory mapped blockram properly
and re-run
   Ngdbuild.
etc."

I'm baffled, as all the system files are the same (MHS, MSS, UCF, XMP,
BMM, etc.) between when my previous working XPS would build a
bitstream and my current broken version of XPS. Thanks to anyone
willing to help me out.

Yeah, disregard. My script forces the creation of the project files when I should have just let the tools create them. Then everything builds fine. As a friend of mine says, "You gotta feel the Force. Don't force the feel."
