In the Accept License Agreements
dialog, tick both I Agree
boxes and click Next
In the Select Destination Directory
dialog, enter /opt/Xilinx
for the installation directory, untick the Create program group entries
, untick the Create desktop shortcuts
and click Next
to proceed. Note the location of DocNav, this is not versioned like Vitis, Vivado & Vitis HLS, hence any existing DocNav installation at this location will be overwritten.
In the Installation Summary
dialog, review the details provided and click Install
The Installation Progress
dialog will now appear showing the progress of the installation (takes around 45 minutes to complete).
Once installation is complete the Xilinx Software Install
dialog will appear, click OK
Depending on what devices were selected for installation will ultimately determine whether or not further dialogs appear regarding licensing arrangements. With just Zynq-7000 selected no further dialogs appear and the WebPack license will be used as default.
Install the cable drivers to gain access to the Zedboard hardware.
