Magic is a famous VLSI cad tool on workstations.
It works find on our Sun Sparc 2.
Has anybody ever compiled it for Linux ?
Any suggestion is deeply appreciated.
Just today in comp.os.linux.announce I saw an announce of
some new Linux distribution on CD (I forgot the name) that
includes Linux itself and a lot of different stuff,
including Magic, Spice and Chipmunk - for only $90. I think,
you can try.
And, if you want to compile some system by yourself (I do)
why not to start with OCTTOOLS?
I would have sent you email, but your posting only has a mal-formed address so...
There is, or atleast was, a version of magic on sunsite. I couldn't
get it to work so I went and compiled it myself. There was very little
effort involved (remember to -DBSD -lbsd and _doprnt() was
missing). If you can't get sunsites package to work, I could bundle up
mine and send it to you.
Has anyone tried porting Berkeley's VLSI tools, MAGIC v6.0 and SPICE3 to Linux???
