Recommended Linux Download and Installation Instructions:
Download the desired components. Other components (Nios II EDS, MegaCore IP Library, and ModelSim-Altera software) can be downloaded as well.
Ensure there is sufficient free disk space to contain copies of the uncompressed versions of these files.
Extract the Quartus II Linux software using the following command:
tar xvf 80_quartus_linux.tar
Execute the 'quartus/linux/install' script (extracted relative to the current directory).
Follow the same procedure for each additional component (Nios II EDS, intellectual property, and ModelSim software), making sure to target the same base installation directory (e.g. /usr2/altera) so that each tool is at the same relative location.
