I'm using Vivado 2015.4
If I understand it correctly, there are 2 ways to work with Linux on Zynq devices
Method 1: a 'manual' flow according to the Xilinx wiki
we currently use this method, so manually generated u-boot, kernel, dts -> dtb, ... We also use Ubuntu as root file system
Method 2 : using petalinux tools
so far we didn't make use of the petalinux tools (but maybe that's a wrong idea), as we wanted to use a different RFS (Ubuntu). But the flow seems so much easier, so I have the following questions :
1) is the 'wiki flow' an older way of working, from before the Petalinux tools? Or what exactly is the difference between both flows?
2) Could we use the petalinux tools to generate everything except the RFS (or just don't use the Petalinux RFS, but replace it with our Ubuntu RFS?).
