I am having some hard time connecting to a Xilinx fpga board. Drivers are provided by Digilent and installation is a straight process.
I have been working with these kind of fpga/mcu/embedded systems for a long time and have been using Slack for more than 10 years. Almost everything worked, sometimes with a little extra effort but it always worked in the end because... Slack rocks!
This time I don't think I am able to make it work. Device is working on Gentoo, Ubuntu, Fedora and even on win, but not Slack ; green indicator LED on board is not shining. Board is a S3E Kit and is fully functional ; no hardware problems at any side.
I first tried the default cable drivers provided by Xilinx ; no luck. Beside the original documentations, I followed these approaches that are reported to be successful ;
but again no luck, it still seems that appropriate cable driver is not being loaded. These findings leads me to think that this is a specific Slackware problem but didn't encountered this behavior in previous versions of Slack. I am now using Slackware64-current(3.10.17), I am not sure about the origin of the problem. I compiled drivers, set udev rules followed everything mentioned around.
"lsusb" finds the device but queries like "djtgcfg enum" results in "no device found".
I would appreciate guidance from experienced users.
