Petalinux Availability

Hello All,

 

In am interested in trying Petalinux on my Spatyan 3E starter kit for general interest/research purposes rather than anything commercial but am having difficulty finding a petalinux distribution.  The links on this board (ie http://developer.petalogix.com/downloads/petalinux-v0.30-rc1.tar.gz) and I have not been able to find an alernative.  Would someone be able to point e in the right direction?

 

Thanks

It may be faster to contact Petalogix.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

after renewing their website some time ago, Petalogix has made a great effort to hide, or avoid, sources (and anything else but documentation) to be downloaded from their site.

I wonder if this is correct behavior according to the GPL licensed stuff they have in their product.

Petalinux is a port of uClinux and the link to the microblaze version (http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~jwilliams/mblaze-uclinux) now is forwarded to petalinux.

 

So you probably have to contact petalogix and ask them for either a CD or some special download link for the things you want.

 

Have a nice synthesis

I recently contacted Petalogix with almost exactely the same question. According to their reply, no free download of petalinux is possible. Instead a $ 10k license will need to be purchased. Obiusly, I might have misunderstood.

Please let me know if I have.

Regards,
Fabrizio

it used to be free, but around a  year ago they switched to a commercial model. Petalogix adds a lot of value to the distribution including tools, docs, and support. If you don't need any of that, then free open source linux is always available..

 

There is still a way to apply to get the distribution for free if you are associated with a university:
