ZCU-102 (Zynq Ultrascale+) which OS to boot (Petalinux, Poky, Ubuntu)

Hi all,

I plan to use the ZCU-102 boards for developing accelerated machine learning applications (Tensorflow, Caffe). In the past, I used Yocto to build Poky images for Zynq 702/706, but at the moment I am a wondering which is the best way to go with ZCU-102.

 

I am trying to follow these instructions:

http://www.wiki.xilinx.com/Yocto+2017.1+Linux+Image+creation+for+ZCU102

where they generate a Petalinux image.

 

Anybody has used Poky?

 

On the Xilinx wiki, there are also a couple of tutorials for Ubuntu

 

1) this tutorial is marked as OBSOLETE

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

 

2) I assume that the new one should be this (although the title choice "part 2" is a little poor)

http://www.wiki.xilinx.com/Zynq+UltraScale%EF%BC%8B+MPSoC+Ubuntu+part+2+-+Building+and+Running+the+Ubuntu+Desktop+From+Sources

 

Should I consider this a definite (under-development) guide to port Linux (Ubuntu) on the ZCU-102? Is there any other document out there?

 

Thank you!

Re: ZCU-102 (Zynq Ultrascale+) which OS to boot (Petalinux, Poky, Ubuntu)

Note that Petalinux has specific package requirements and it is best that you have one of the supported linux distros, like Ubuntu 16.  Make sure you have as many of the required packages installed before trying Petalinux otherwise the Petalinux install will fail because of a missing package.

 

I also suggest following the example in UG1209 Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC: Embedded Design Tutorial, starting at Ch 3: Example Project: Create Linux Images using PetaLinux.  This assumes that you have Petalinux installed.

 

Download UG1209 tutorial files.  It contains prebuilt binaries that you can boot from and a bitstream to use with the exercises.

I know I'm late here but if you are interested in using the Petalinux tools I created a Docker container for 2017.1 and the Xilinx XSDK to make installation easier: https://hub.docker.com/r/jamesanthonylow/petalinux/
