Hi

PetaLinux is Xilinx's commercial Linux distribution. If all of this talk about Git has made your head hurt, it's best you take a look at PetaLinux. PetaLinux makes it easy to use Linux on Xilinx technology and can be found on the web here. The PetaLinux branches are release branches. There is one PetaLinux branch for each release of PetaLinux.
