Petalinux 2018.3 installation on Ubuntu 16.04.5

Jump to solution

Hi, 

I have installed Ubuntu 16.04.4 in virtual box in Windows 10 operating system. According to user guide UG1144 (v2018.3), only Ubuntu 16.04.3 and Ubuntu 16.04.4 are compatible for petalinux 2018.3. 

I get continuous messages in Ubuntu 16.04.4 regarding the up gradation of Ubuntu 16.04.4 to 16.04.5. 

Q: Would it be possible to install petalinux 2018.3 on Ubuntu 16.04.5 ? 

How about packages in Table 2-1 on page 11 of user guide UG1144 (v2018.3). These packages are for Ubuntu 16.04.3. I am wondering about the packages requirement for Ubuntu 16.04.4 and 16.04.5. How can I get them ?

While it will most likely run fine, the problem is that the petalinux installer will check the version and will say it is not supported. This is because 16.04.5 came out after petalinux 2018.3, and Xilinx has not gone back to update 2018.3. It is a bit frustrating, but sort of understandable, Xilinx doesn't go back to test old versions of their software against every OS update that comes later.

So I would suggest installing using a 16.04.4, ignore the messages from Ubuntu about updating, at least until you have Petalinux installed. If you chose to let Ubuntu update afterwards, you might make a backup/snapshot of your virtual machine, so you can go "undo" in case something doesn't work properly.
