“Failed to load client library” Message When Using USB Blaster with ARM DS-5

Environment

  • Arria® V FPGAs and SoC FPGAs
  • Cyclone® V FPGAs and SoC FPGAs
  • Quartus® II Subscription Edition
  • Intel® SoC FPGA Embedded Development Suite (SoC EDS)
  • BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT

    Critical Issue

    Description

    If you try to debug the SoC HPS with the ARM DS-5 Development Studio over a USB Blaster, you might see a “Failed to load client library” message.

    The Altera JTAG client library, required for debugging with DS-5 over the USB Blaster, links against a library which might not be found automatically. Although the Altera Complete Design Suite includes the required library, its containing directory is not included on the library path by DS-5 when the debugger starts.

    Resolution

    You can work around this issue by adding /linux to LD_LIBRARY_PATH before launching DS-5, with the following command:

    sudo yum install libgomp.i686

    Alternatively, upgrade to the SoC EDS v.14.1.
