Important Critical Issue Notice for all Quartus II software version 7.1 and 7.1 Service Pack 1 designs using the OpenCore Plus feature to evaluate intellectual property (IP), including the Nios® II processor, instead of a full license for the IP core.
To use the Nios II Processor Embedded Design Suite (EDS), you must first install both the Quartus II software and the MegaCore IP Library.
Recommended Linux and UNIX Download and Installation Instructions:
Download the desired components. The Altera Installer, Quartus II software, and Quartus II Device Information are required. Other components (Nios II EDS, MegaCore IP Library, Intellectual Property, and ModelSim) are optional.
Arrange all the downloaded files together in one directory. For install setup, ensure there is sufficient free disk space (approximately 4 Gbytes) to contain copies of the uncompressed versions of these files. An additional 5 Gbytes of disk space is required for software installation.
Extract the Altera UNIX/Linux download installer using the following command:
Execute the 'install_download’ script which now resides in the current directory.
Select the appropriate options in the installation script to install the software.
Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 (32-bit and 64-bit)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (32-bit and 64-bit)

To download and uncompress all files (Quartus II software, MegaCore IP Library, Nios II processor, and ModelSim) requires 4 Gbytes of free disk space. Installation requires an additional 5 Gbytes of disk space. You can delete the 4 Gbytes of download and uncompressed files from your hard drive after installation is complete.
