DA_IC Segmentation Fault / Violation

Question asked by vikram.m.rao on Nov 2, 2013

Hi All,

 

I am using ICStudio 2008.1 (yes I realize this is outdated, we have some existing designs and we do not want to make tool changes in the middle of them) running on Linux 64bit. When using da_ic and I attempt to "Prep for Layout", I get a segmentation violation. I get segmentation faults when I attempt to generate a netlist or simulate. I've even tried a simple inverter design and same problem. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Here is the log from the "Prep for Layout" segmentation violation:
