Perhaps John can respond to whether or not it would be appropriate to

been using CentOS and I have found that it has been lacking as to

If you have some instructions on installing Xilinx tools under Ubuntu
then please feel free to post them here. If you are willing, I would
also be happy to add it to our existing page
with an appropriate acknowledgment of course. If you want to host it
yourself, I can just add a link - whichever you prefer.
Our reasoning for recommending CentOS is simply that it clones RHEL,
which is Xilinx's officially supported Linux distro. It has been our
experience that this minimises pain in using Xilinx tools under Linux.
However a side effect of this is the fact that we inherit RHEL's "deep
freeze" philosophy regarding kernel and software package versions, among
other things. Some RHEL packages are ancient - if it's critical you can
just remove them with Yum, then download/build a more recent version and
install it into /usr/local.
