Ubuntu Desktop on ZCU102

I'm getting a ZCU102 next week and I want to bring up the full Ubuntu desktop to develop a demo that uses a GUI.

 

I found a recipe on the Xilinx Wiki:

 

http://www.wiki.xilinx.com/Zynq+UltraScalePlus+MPSoC+-+Ubuntu+Desktop+Step+by+Step+Guide

 

Unfortunately the page says "Obsolete" right at the top, but also has a revision date of Sept 15, 2016, which seems a little strange.

 

I also ran through the kernel configuration instructions and they do not seem to reflect the current options in the tool.

 

Has anyone built the Ubuntu Desktop release for the ZCU102 using these instructions? Are there non-"obsolete" procedures?

Re: Ubuntu Desktop on ZCU102

Thanks achutha

 

BTW I received the ZCU102 yesterday and tried to use the SD card image that I downloaded from the

page, but configuration failed. I suspect that this was due to the image being compiled for ES silicon

and the board has ES2 silicon. I suspect that this difference may be the reason that the page is marked

"obsolete".

 

It would be helpful to have an updated image for download. I always like to try a known good image

before I try building one from scratch.

Re: Ubuntu Desktop on ZCU102

It looks like these procedures are still for an ES1 board.

Re: Ubuntu Desktop on ZCU102

Hello,

 

Did you manage to get this working ?

 

I have a zcu102 and I know it works because I can generate projects with SDSoC and get them running on the board and see the output in the tera term terminal.

 

I have used the new version of the ubuntu desktop project pre-built image as indicated in this thread and flash it to a SD card. Once I try to boot the only message I see in the tera term terminal is :

 

Xilinx Zynq MP First Stage Boot Loader
Release 2016.3 Jan 2 2017 - 16:11:35

 

and that is all. Is this normal ?

 

I have connected a monitor using the display port but I cannot get any signal there.I can see two red LEDs in the board when I use this image.

 

Thanks,

Re: Ubuntu Desktop on ZCU102

The answer to your question depends on whether you have an ES1 or ES2 board.

 

I have an ES2 board and saw similar behavior when I tried to use the 091516 SD card image on my card.

 

Based on what I saw in various posting and answer records, you cannot configure ES2 silicon with an ES2 bit stream.

 

As far as I know the only Petalinux release that includes an ES2 BSP is 2016.4. 

 

I was hoping that the update to the Ubuntu Desktop recipe page would be based on an ES2 ZCU102, but that does

not appear to be the case.

Re: Ubuntu Desktop on ZCU102

should be: you cannot configure ES2 silicon with an ES1 bit stream.
