    MiniZed board not detected by Vivado/SDK


      Hello, I am currently experiencing a following issue:

      I'm trying to get my MiniZed board started using Linux (more precisely a personalized version of LMDE, mostly compatible with Ubuntu). When I connect the board using a USB cable, it's properly detected by the operating system:

      [  139.563349] usb 3-2: new high-speed USB device number 7 using xhci_hcd
      [  139.707309] usb 3-2: New USB device found, idVendor=0403, idProduct=6010
      [  139.707322] usb 3-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
      [  139.707323] usb 3-2: Product: JTAG+Serial
      [  139.707324] usb 3-2: Manufacturer: Xilinx
      [  139.707325] usb 3-2: SerialNumber: 1234-oj1
      [  139.709214] ftdi_sio 3-2:1.0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter detected
      [  139.709260] usb 3-2: Detected FT2232H
      [  139.709489] usb 3-2: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0
      [  139.710870] ftdi_sio 3-2:1.1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter detected
      [  139.710902] usb 3-2: Detected FT2232H
      [  139.711038] usb 3-2: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB1

      Using `screen /dev/ttyUSB1 115200` I can successfully communicate with the pre-installed PetaLinux. I can't, however, use Vivado or Xilinx SDK to program/debug, even a simple code.

      I tried following the MiniZed tutorials and basically stopped at the same point as mentioned in http://www.zedboard.org/content/sdk-cant-program-fpga-minized, which is the "Program FPGA" step.

      I was successful in getting past that point on the same machine, but using Windows (which is NOT my preferred solution). I have checked the BSP settings in the Xilinx SDK and they seem consistent between operating systems.

      Is there any additional guide how to setup the hardware server properly to use the board under Linux? I assume that the (Xilinx) Hardware Manager does not know that the JTAG is present at /dev/ttyUSB0.

      For the record, I have imported the MiniZed board package and I'm running Vivado 2017.4.
