What source (zedboard.org or xilinx) do I grab the PetaLinux BSP?

Jump to solution

I'm confused and held up on a step in the UG1144 document for getting started with petalinux. In the section "Creating a Project" (more specifically sub section "Prerequisites") it says the following...

PetaLinux BSP is downloaded. You can download PetaLinux BSP from https://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.html/content/xilinx/en/downloadNav/embedded-design-tools.html.

I have two questions that need cleared up regarding the above.

1) If I download from the Xilinx link above then which file do I want to download if I'm working with the MicroZed z7010 board? There's so many files on that page with no description in saying "Hey if you're using the MicroZed board then download this one".

2) On the zedboard website http://zedboard.org/support/design/1519/10 under the section PetaLinux BSP's you can also download a "PetaLinux 2018.2 Compressed BSP z7010". Is this the same BSP as the one Xilinx provides above in question one? If so, which source do I go with in downloading the BSP and why?

3) Lastly, I'm a beginner here and it would be nice to be able to differentiate against all these files I'm downloading as well as all the files Vivado is generating. For example, there's the PetaLinux BSP, PetaLinux SDK, and all the generated vivado files which includes a generated SDK or BSP I think?! I'm going to keep reading through UG1144 and struggle through this project but I'm in a hurricane of information overload at the moment. Having a document(s) to fall back to in understanding what each file is and where it starts to come into the picture through the workflow would be really helpful.

You might also look at the "Integrating Sensors on MiniZed with PetaLinux" course from our training page which may be helpful to understanding the PetaLinux development process faster than UG1144 with some hands-on training materials:

http://www.microzed.org/support/trainings-and-videos

The training is targeted to our MiniZed board, but the same principles should apply for MicroZed.

The PetaLinux BSP on the zedboard.org site is the one you want. MicroZed is an Avnet board. Therefore, Avnet is the one who maintains this.

Although the target hardware is different, the Avnet MiniZed course "Integrating Sensors on MiniZed with PetaLinux (2017.1 and 2017.4)" at http://zedboard.org/support/trainings-and-videos would likely be very useful for you, as I believe it does go through the level of detail for which you are asking.

Cross-linking to MicroZed.org thread which is similar:
