Run a script at startup using Petalinux 2017.4

Jump to solution

Hi

 

I am migrating from Petalinux 2014.4  to 2017.4, target is a Zynq . One thing I have is a shell script that runs at startup. I followed the AR#55998 recommendations which work fine in 2014.4 but error during petalinux-build in 2017.4.

 

The make file (as per AR#55998)

 

 

APP = lstart.sh

pre-build:

post-build:

pre-install:

post-install:

all:

build:

clean:

.PHONY: install image

install:
$(TARGETINST) -d $(APP) /etc/init.d/$(APP)
$(TARGETINST) -s /etc/init.d/$(APP) /etc/rc5.d/S99$(APP)

 

 

 

The log file

 

DEBUG: Executing shell function do_install
install: cannot stat 'lstart': No such file or directory
WARNING: /home/dave/Projects/Lu250/build/tmp/work/cortexa9hf-neon-xilinx-linux-gnueabi/lstart/1.0-r0/temp/run.do_install.3288:1 exit 1 from 'install -m 0755 lstart /home/dave/Projects/Lu250/build/tmp/work/cortexa9hf-neon-xilinx-linux-gnueabi/lstart/1.0-r0/image/usr/bin'
ERROR: Function failed: do_install (log file is located at /home/dave/Projects/Lu250/build/tmp/work/cortexa9hf-neon-xilinx-linux-gnueabi/lstart/1.0-r0/temp/log.do_install.3288)

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks 

 

Dave

There are some fairly major changes between 2014 and 2017 - to the point where your petalinux application is just not going to work at all. The entire build and package management system has changed.

 

Here's a post I wrote about how to run a custom script at boot time, which may help you:

Did you start with a working petalinux bsp for 17.4?  In 17.2 there is a recipe in meta-user/recipe-apps/startup that does exactly what you want.

Hi @davewarren,

 

Refer UG1144 section "Application Auto Run at Startup" page 60.

 

Also refer the migration AR's https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/68370.html https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/68440.html

Thanks,

Jeff & Jeff & Sandeep,

 

Thanks all Yocto Petalinux is quite different from the original, I am weighing up as too using the simple or comprehensive startup script method. In any case I need to forget about makefiles and instead play with 'bit-baking' .
