    Errors when renaming a cell in library manager Reply
    Hi all,
     
    I was trying to rename a cell from the "Library manager", the following error msgs appeared in the bottom section of the "LIBRARY MANAGER" window.

     
    Renaming cell "10uA_current_mirror_LV1" to "10uA_current_mirror_LV2" in library "July09".
    Transfer of 7 files phase complete in  0:00:00
    Performing instance update.
    Start running ccpCdbaUpdtr ...
    ccpCdbaUpdtr ran successfully ...
    Performing instance update.
    Error (gdmLoadSharedLib): Loading "/apps/cadence/ius/0611USR3/SunOS/tools.sun4v/lib/libgdmimppi_sh.so" has failed.
    Error (gdmLoadSharedLib): Loading "/apps/cadence/ius/0611USR3/SunOS/tools.sun4v/lib/libgdmimppi_sh.so" has failed.
    Error (dlopen): ld.so.1: ccpDfIICatUpdtr: fatal: /apps/cadence/ius/0611USR3/SunOS/tools.sun4v/lib/libgdmimppi_sh.so: open failed: No such file or directory
    Error (dlopen): ld.so.1: ccpDfIICatUpdtr: fatal: /apps/cadence/ius/0611USR3/SunOS/tools.sun4v/lib/libgdmimppi_sh.so: open failed: No such file or directory
     

    According to the above messages, it seems that the renaming has been done successfully. However, a subsequent (system automatic) instance update or refresh generated the error msgs. The so complained "libgdmimppi_sh.so" is indeed missing from the target directory, but can be found at many other locations in the cadence directory. Does any of you have an idea what is this file for?

    During the whole process of renaming, the icfb window has been very quiet without a single message.

    I am running Cadence 5.1.0 on a Solaris 10 machine.

    Thanks

    It looks like you are picking up shared library files from a Cadence IUS (Verilog) install rather than from your Cadence install. Notice that the path is pointing to a cadence/ius/0611USR3 version. You need to update your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to have the Cadence shared library path first when running icfb.

    In a shell window:
    echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    In Bourne/Korn/Bash:
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$CDS_HOME/tools/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    In C-Shell:
    setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $CDS_HOME/tools/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
