I have the error when I tried to run the modelsim 6.6d and display this below and it was fine in previously 11.04 version

Error: cannot find /home/mark/altera/11.0/modelsim_ase/bin/../linux_rh60/vlog The vlog should be in directory of /home/mark/altera/11.0/modelsim_ase/bin/vlog

But, I don't understand why is looking for linux_rh60/vlog?

Has anyone seen this error before?

To fix this, you have to edit the vsim file with

gksu gedit vsim

in the bin directory. The thing is that if the linux version is 3.x.x.x there a condition that searches in an unexistent directory, so edit the line (204 aprox.)

  *)                vco="linux_rh60" ;;


***)                vco="linux" ;;**

also, you have to change the line 13 (first non-comment line)
