Welcome to my blog

My name is Sven Andersson and I
work as a consultant in embedded
system design, implemented in ASIC
and FPGA.
In my spare time I write this blog
and I hope it will inspire others to
learn more about this fantastic field.
I live in Stockholm Sweden and have
my own company

Zynq design from scratch. Part 49.
Installing Vivado 2014.2 and PetaLinux 2014.2

Xilinx has released new versions of Vivado and PetaLinux. Let's download and install the new releases and use them in a new project.

Download and install Vivado 2014.2

This time we will use the Web Install Client, a small program that can be downloaded from the Xilinx download page. Here is a video you can watch to learn more about the new download program.

Click the "Linux 64-bit Web Install Client" link.

Click Save File. The file will be downloaded to the Download directory if we haven't specified another directory. Make the file executable and and run it using sudo.

This will start the Xilinx Vivado installer.

Enter User ID and Password and click Next.

Accept the license agreements.

Select what to download.

Customize the installation by adding thing we need and remove things we don't need.

Look at the download size. Only 2.59 GB. Select destination directory.

See part 45 for the rest of the installation.

Installing Petalinux

We will follow the description in part 22 and install Petalinux 2014.2.

Download Board Support Package

Running the installer

Make the installer executable.

-> chmod 755

-> sudo ./ /opt/PetaLinux

Setup Vivado and PetaLinux SDK working environment

To setup the working environment we source the setup scripts:

-> source /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2014.2/
-> source /opt/Xilinx/SDK/2014.2/
-> source /opt/PetaLinux/petalinux-v2014.2-final/

Run the BSP install script

To install the board support packages we run the following commands:

-> cd $HOME/Projects/PetaLinux
-> petalinux-create -t project -s /home/svenand/Downloads/avnet-digilent-Zedboard-v2014.2-final.bsp

Now we are ready to load and boot PetaLinux on our ZedBoard. See part 23.

To rebuild the linux kernel see part 25.

Make sure you have installed the following libraries before building a new kernel.

  • lib32gomp1
  • lib32ncursesw5
