[Zynq Zybo] How to configure CentOS 6.5 to generate u-boot

Go to solution Solved by jamey.hicks,



I want to generate a u-boot file, however I am unable to do it because my OS (CentOS 6.5) is not configured.

When I type the make command (make ARCH-arm= CROSS_COMPILE=arm-xilinx-linux-gnueabi-zynq_ZYBO_config) I get the "System not configured" error.

Apparently I need to install some package but I can't figure out which. Has anyone experienced this problem or knows how to cope with it?


Thanks for help

The way we copy with this is not to use u-boot with the zybo, zedboard, or other zynq boards, because it is one more thing to configure and build per board and it's a headache.


We boot Linux directly from the FSBL. See https://github.com/cambridgehackers/zynq-boot/and http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-boot-Linux-on-a-Zedboard-without-U-Boot/


I've offered to Xilinx to help integrate the ability to boot Linux into their FSBL tree. If you are interested in this capability, you might want to submit a support request to Xilinx.


Zynq-boot contains filesystem images to boot headless Android, which may not be what you want. That same kernel, with an appropriate ramdisk, should boot other Linux distributions. I'm willing to help with this.
