Why do I get the error “No JTAG hardware available” when running jtagconfig in Linux CentOS or Ubuntu?


If the Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Software or the Intel® SDK for OpenCL™, was installed using the root account in CentOS or Ubuntu, the command jtagconfig may report “No JTAG hardware available” if run from a different account.  See example below.

$ jtagconfig

No JTAG hardware available


Restart the jtag daemon using the following commands:

$ sudo killall -9 jtagd

$ sudo jtagd


Confirm jtagconfig works correctly.  See example below.
