linux initrd=initrd.gz url=goo.gl/A6R6Dm auto=true priority=critical interface=auto
linux initrd=initrd.gz url=goo.gl/eagfri auto=true priority=critical interface=auto

Accessing the virtual machine

The virtual machine can be accessed via SSH. To display applications with graphical user interfaces, a X11 server (Xming for MS Windows or XQuartz for Mac OS X) should be installed on the host computer.

Installing Vivado Design Suite

mkdir /opt/Xilinx
cd /opt/Xilinx
tar -zxf Xilinx_Vivado_SDK_2016.4_1215_1.tar.gz
cd Xilinx_Vivado_SDK_2016.4_1215_1
sed -i '/uname -i/s/ -i/ -m/' xsetup
