Hi @phdwong

If you are using petalinux, then we have a older UG1144 guide to enable TCF

Hi @phdwong

tcf-agent is debugger utility, this has to enabled in your rootfs. 

here the AR which will help you to enable the basic kernel configurations for debug support, along with tfc-agnet in rootfs.

Hi @aravindb

Thank you for you answer,  from the AR,

in our kernel I can find the setting ,but Rootfs is not.  I generate the Rootfs by busybox, the version is not suit for TCF ?

Hi @phdwong

 

In that case, build the tcf-agent & tcf-client from sources, extract the rootfs tar and add this built tcf binaries and compress it back.

How to on build & modify rootfs here:
