To update to last version (at least, it worked for me):

0) setting my aur helper working directory somewhere else (/tmp couldn't fit it)

1)updated pkgver, _more_ver and md5sum

2)in package() I added at the beginning:

tar -xrf Xilinx_Vivado_${pkgver}_${_more_ver}"

cd "Xilinx_Vivado_${pkgver}_${_more_ver}" (removed "SDK" word)

3)replace 2019.1 with 2019.2 in the "install udev rules"

If is missing (, then check if it was installed from aur (Blackarch repo has a broken version)

Thanks for this package [got my vote]. Used it to install Vivado 2019.2 on Manjaro 18.1.4 (using Pamac) after the Xilinx unified installer did not work (allegedly supports only a few distros). Verified functionality with Arty A7 FPGA dev board. Had to tweak the package file (obviously due to the different version => different hash). Also, libfakeroot was not found and I specified the absolute path to work around it. Added manual decompression of the tar.gz archive. As pointed out by the package file, the archive is rather big (26.5 GiB) and installation failed at the beginning because of the available disk space (had 150GiB in total); enlarged partition to work around this.

Package currently doesn't build due to a makepkg bug. As soon as lands in a release, I can update it to 2019.2.

@xiretza: that may explain. i built it directly under host env containing xorg, so my builds had while your build did not. but that's just my guess.

and it took me too much time to build vivado... so i do not want to build it again until the next version. i will give a feedback at the next version if you made some patches, or a workaround patch if you did not.

@heliochronix: cheers, the package now includes desktop files and udev rules!

@xiretza: I sent you a patch file via email. Hope it helps!

xiretza commented on 2019-10-13 00:42

@xw258: can't reproduce, it builds just fine in a clean base-devel chroot without libxtst.

@heliochronix: could you send me a patch file? AUR comments break formatting a little.

Hello again,

I did some testing and actually found their script is terrible and that whole suggestion I had doesn't work. The changes I ended up making were as follows:

I added three new files based on the wiki:




I added the relevant md5sums to the PKGBUILD.

I added the following install lines right before the Clean Up section that:

install -Dm644 "$pkgdir/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.1/data/xicom/cable_drivers/lin64/install_script/install_drivers/52-xilinx-digilent>

install -Dm644 "$pkgdir/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.1/data/xicom/cable_drivers/lin64/install_script/install_drivers/52-xilinx-ftdi-usb>

install -Dm644 "$pkgdir/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.1/data/xicom/cable_drivers/lin64/install_script/install_drivers/>

install -Dm644 "$srcdir/Xilinx-DocNav.desktop" -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications"

install -Dm644 "$srcdir/Xilinx-SDK.desktop" -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications"

install -Dm644 "$srcdir/Xilinx-VivadoIDE.desktop" -t "$pkgdir/usr/share/applications"

This seems to have resulted in effectively the same behavior as the driver install script, and also adds the desktop files so they can be located by the system. It all seems to build and install correctly, and I can interface with at least one of the FPGA boards I have access to via the udev rules.

Hello, First off, thank you for getting this installer working for Arch. It's nice knowing I'm not dirtying up my system with this software.

As to my question. I'm wondering if we can have the packaging process invoke the "install_drivers" script mentioned in the wiki to copy the necessary udev rules into place in the package? It should be as simple as invoking the script "$pkgdir/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2019.1/data/xicom/cable_drivers/lin64/install_script/install_drivers/install_drivers" I think.

Also, I had to manually generate the .desktop files for this as per the wiki instructions. Maybe we can package in premade versions of those into this?
