Building linux-xlnx kernel 3.14 on MicroZed board

Hi,

 

Not a question but this time but a description on how I got kernel version 3.14 to work and boot on a Microzed Board from an SD card.

 

I ran into some problems recently with the ethernet connection using kernel version 3.8, see message thread:

/highlight/false#M10385

 

I found some more useful info in this message thread:

In the end I got things to work properly: the microzed board now boots from the SD card and runs vesion 3.14 which also eliminated the ethernet connection problems.

 

In essence I used the SD card content from the SD card to boot version 3.8 and changed the uImage and devicetree.dtb files.

 

I have attached a description of how I did it, I hope it helps others who want to do the same.

I definitely could have used something like this when I was trying to do it.
