Chipscope under Linux

I want to use Chipscope under Linux, but when I try to configure the connection (I have a parallel IV Cable) I get the following messages:

COMMAND: open_parallel_cable PROXYTYPE=xilinx_parallel4 FREQUENCY=5000000 PORT=LPT1 MODULENAME=libCse_CommProxyPlugin TYPE=xilinx_plugin INFO: Started ChipScope host (localhost:50001) ERROR: Socket Open Failed. localhost/ localhost Connection refused ERROR: Failed to open Xilinx Parallel Cable

I use Fedora Core 4. The drivers for the cable work normally (I tested this with iMpact).

Help please

In fact the problem was with Chipscope server, when I tryed to launch it, it gace the following message:

----DEGIN---- /opt/Xilinx/ISE7.1 application-specific initialization failed: Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories: /usr/local/lib/tcl8.4 /opt/Xilinx/chipscope/bin/lib/tcl8.4 /opt/Xilinx/chipscope/lib/tcl8.4 /opt/Xilinx/chipscope/bin/library /opt/Xilinx/chipscope/library /opt/Xilinx/chipscope/tcl8.4.3/library /opt/Xilinx/tcl8.4.3/library /usr/local/lib/tcl8.4

This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.

CS% /opt/Xilinx/chipscope/bin/lin/ line 26: 4504 Segmentation fault cse $args


The solution was to copy the tcl8.4 directory (from the $CHIPSCOPE/bin/lin/xilinx/bin/lib/tcl8.4) to /usr/local/lib ... after that all was normal. I don't undestand why I had such an error, even changing the environment variables (LD_LIBRARY_PATH, PATH, XILINX, CHIPSCOPE) didn't change the error messages displayed by the server, this means that the paths are hard coded and don't use environment variables, very strange for me to see this kind of errors from Xilinx.
