Virtex 7 PCIe Linux Driver Kernel

Jump to solution

Hi all,

 

is there a restriction from which kernel version it is possible to develop a linux pcie driver?

I have here Ubuntu 10.4 with the kernel 2.6.31, so does anybody know if I'm gonna get problems with this old kernel?

 

 

Best regards

Thomas

Hi ,

 

If you look at the drivers and applications provided by xilinx i.e., xapp1052 and xapp1022, they are tested with Fedora10.

Fedora10 is kernel 2.6.27 based as per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fedora_%28operating_system%29 .

 

As this is just a minor change i would not expect a fatal issues. but some minor changes may require as packages may have some upgrades.

 

Regards,

Koti Reddy
