Using Spartan 6 LX16 Evaluation Kit on Linux

Hi everybody,

I am trying to use the evaluation kit on linux. Is there any tool to replace avprog?

I am also trying to make it work with a vitualbox with windows Xp. The serial port is apparently working fine. I am using a sniffer in debian to check that avprog in the virtual xp is sending the data to check the board. But the board never answers, and the sign of board not detected appears. Any help?

Best regards,

Martín

You can use a Xilinx-compatible JTAG cable with iMPACT instead of AvProg.
