I have Altera Quartus II 4.0 software and I managed to successfully install it on a Debian Linux machine (with Intel Pentium 4 processor). However, always when I try to start the software, I will get the following messages:
"Choose the preferred look and feel for the Quartus II software..."
I select Quartus II and click OK. After that I will get:
"MainWin license not available -- to run the Quartus II software, you must specify a valid license file that contains a MainWin license."
I have searched Altera web sites and newsgroups but was unable to find out what is this MainWin license. So does anybody know what it is, where could I get one and how to specify the license file for Quartus?
Thanks for your advice. It would be nice if I could do finally all FPGA development on Linux.
