Hi

I am wondering again and again if xilinx does any testing of the software
they release
both ISE 7.1 and EDK 7.1 have service paks already so I assume some bug
tesing and FIXIN has been done?

well I am having some trouble with microblaze system that shoud connect to 4
64 bit SDRAM banks using 4 instances of opb2plb bridge.

so, problem, oh well lets take a xilinx own KNOWN WORKING DESIGN and lets
see what is done there, so I load the ML401 reference design in EDK 7.1,
then I open add edit cores, and hit 'generate address map'

waiting

waiting

... and XPS is gone!!!

yes it just silently closes itself.

I am having some warnings when doing address generate so I wanted to compare
those warning with the warnings that come with xilinx own design, but I can
as the xilinx own desing makes xilinx own software to terminate itself.

its not so impossible to test for software bugs, why xilinx isnt doing that?
testing with its own design (like the ML401 ref design) would be good test
for beta test of new releases. but it has not been done.

I agree, im also very frustrated about the general quality of the EDK product..
I wasnt able to synthesize the reference design for the ml401 either.
