  1. I'm "resolving" this since it all works now. I noticed while running the project from Jon that the log files contained paths to other projects. I did have 6 other projects attempted. I took a guess at purging. Today I "rm -rf'd" all projects but two, and started anew. Now it works. Clearly the error was my own and unknown. Thanks again for your help. Just for fun I've added the "hello.c" program I modified. I needed to make sure I could make simple changes and that it truly was my code running: helloworld.c
  2. I said "Altera" and pushed a button and it worked. No seriously, I got it working and I will put here what I did at the end in case it helps others. The problem is that I tried to follow a procedure to manually install Digilent Programming Cable drivers and the Digilent Adept run-time SW, this one: https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/54382.html but the procedure is not correct for my system (Vivado 2016.4 on a 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04), so I had to abandon it. Nonetheless, that seems to have made the difference. 1) I downloaded the tarball digilent.adept.runtime_2.16.6-x
  3. I started this post and got a good response. I was able to use jpeyron's project (Hi Jon) to get the Zybo Getting Started to turn on LEDs with the switches. However, I still cannot get any output on any console. I am sticking with his project until I get this console business sorted out. Here's what I have: Vivado 2016.4 on a 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04. I'm trying this: https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/programmable-logic/tutorials/zybo-getting-started-with-zynq/start and I do indeed have the correct board activity (LEDs and switches). On power on, I see this
  4. Hi Jon, I used your project and the LEDs respond to the switches. There is clearly something I'm not doing according to the Getting Started, or something you just know to add. I'll be doing a side-by-side compare to see what I've left out. I didn't even export hardware. Just loaded it, programmed the device, started SDK, run->launch on hardware. The serial port still does not work, but that's a different issue now (different because before, without the LEDs changing, I shouldn't be expecting the program to be running). Thank you for your help on this. I'll post a solution when I u
  5. Too many diffs. I'll be trying your project soon. Thanks again.
  6. Hi Jon, I'm not sure what you mean by "Are you changing anything in the Zynq processor?" I really tried to follow to the letter the tutorial. If that means changing anything in the Zynq, then I am. I don't know what you mean by "using the board files" since in order to create the HW wrapper and export HW to SDK, then that's required, yes? On this: > Have you tried using my project that I posted above? not yet .... I'm running an intelligent recursive diff of it first. Here's the block design:
  7. Thanks. I should have mentioned that I did all that. I can program the PL with my own Verilog code and that works. It's the PS that doesn't work. Independent of the console, if that demo is meant to change the LEDs, it's not doing it for me. Here are some screenshots. I'm in the dialout group. It shows the selected board. I start with the vcse_server, then I launch Vivado. There is a screenshot of the only thing I can get minicom to do ... respond to Ctrl-A Z. Not sure what to try next.
  8. I am fighting to get any one of 5 different simple ZYBO demos to work. At all. I can download bitfiles with my own Verilog code and blink, or scan, or pulsate the LEDs, and get behaviour changes based on buttons and switches ... so I know the board works, but nothing I do with the with the processor core (PS block) works. I am here looking for information on how to get some kind of information out of the board so I can figure out what's going on. The demo I am working on now is this one: https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/programmable-logic/tutorials/zybo-getting-started-with-zy
