Update U-boot and Linux Kernel for PetaLinux 13.10.

PetaLinux 13.10 coming with U-boot vesrion 2013.07 and Linux Kernel 3.8.1. If for some reason you need to change U-boot and/or Linux kernel with newer one - u can do it manually(configure, compile and include to BOOT.BIN image) or using PetaLinux tools to automate it. This post will be about later.
I will do it on virtual machine (VMWare Workstation 10) running Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit version with PetaLinux 13.10 already installed. I will also use fresh installation of prebuilt Avnet-Digilent BSP for ZedBoard, but this recipe works for my custom "hardware design" for ZedBoard too.

  1. So, since I'm using 64 bit Ubuntu, I'm missing quite a few packages, especially 32bit versions. Below the list, but some package uninstalled my 64 version of GCC, so I re-install it as a last step.
  2. sudo apt-get install gawk
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    sudo apt-get install automake
    sudo apt-get install libtool
    sudo apt-get install lib32ncurses5
    sudo apt-get install lib32ncurses5-dev
    sudo apt-get install lib32ncursesw5
    sudo apt-get install ncurses-dev:i386
    sudo apt-get install libstdc++6:i386
    sudo apt-get install libselinux1:i386
    sudo apt-get install gcc

  3. Also, gmake package for Ubuntu not exist, but some Xilinx tools relay on it, so lets gmake symlink to make:

    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/make /usr/bin/gmake

  4. We also have to source PetaLinux settings, but because I'm always forget to do it - I will change my .bashrc so it will be done automatically, each time I log in. SO, in home directory, add next instructions to the end of the ~/.bashrc file.

    export CROSS_COMPILE=arm-xilinx-linux-gnueabi-
    source /opt/petalinux-v2013.10-final/settings.sh
    source /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2013.4/settings64.sh

  5. Next, download 'petalinux-v2013.10-final-installer.run' from Xilinx website and put in ~/Downloads directory.
  6. Now, let's create 'Projects' forlder for our PetaLinux projects and install Avnet-Digilent BSP project into it. It will create 2 projects for us: Vivado 13.3 and ISE-14.7. I will use Vivado one and we can delete 14.7.
  7. d9@ubuntu:~$ mkdir Projects
    d9@ubuntu:~$ cd Projects
    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects$ petalinux-create -t project -s ../Downloads/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-v2013.10-final.bsp

    INFO: Create project:
    INFO: Projects:

    INFO: New project successfully created in /home/d9/Projects/

    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects$ cd Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3/

  8. Let's test prebuilt packages using JTAG on our ZedBoard. Set MIO3, MIO4 and MIO5 jumpers on ZedBoard to JTAG boot(all to GND), turn board on, run 'gtkterm' (use ZedBoard USB-to-Serial port) and boot using petalinux-boot. Below output I got on my ZedBoard:
  9. d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ petalinux-boot --jtag --prebuilt 3

    PetaLinux v2013.10 (Yocto 1.4) Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013_3 ttyPS0
    
    Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013_3 login:
    
  10. As you can see very first in a log is U-boot version and build timestamp: U-Boot 2013.07 (Nov 21 2013 - 18:27:09).
    Loging as 'root'/'root' and check what version of kernel we got. It's 3.8.11 and it built on Thu Nov 21 18:30:11 EST 2013.
  11. root@Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013_3:~# uname -a
    Linux Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013_3 3.8.11 #2 SMP PREEMPT Thu Nov 21 18:30:11 EST 2013 armv7l GNU/Linux

  12. Now, let's verify that we can reconfigure and rebuild existing kernel, uboot and rootfs. Run petalinux-config for each one, but don't change any settings yet. Just go thru menus if you like and exit. If you got any errors - most likely your installation missing some packages.
  13. d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ petalinux-config
    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ petalinux-config -c kernel
    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ petalinux-config -c rootfs

  14. Clean whatever we may have from previus builds and re-build it.
  15. d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ petalinux-build -x mrproper
    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ petalinux-build

  16. This is the build log I got.

  18. Now, we need to generate BOOT.BIN which includes our hardware implementation bitstream, FSBL and U-boot. Bitstream and FSBL executable are the same, so we will point them to petalinux tool and it will use just built u-boot exec. By default tool will put BOOT.BIN in current directory, but we need it to be in images directory. I will also force to replace file if it exists.
  19. petalinux-package --boot --fsbl pre-built/linux/images/zynq_fsbl.elf --fpga pre-built/linux/implementation/download.bit --uboot --force -o images/linux/BOOT.BIN

    INFO: Generating zynq binary package BOOT.BIN...
    INFO: Binary is ready.

  20. Replace, so called, prebuilt configuration for our PetaLinux project
  21. petalinux-package --prebuilt --fpga pre-built/linux/implementation/download.bit --force

    INFO: Pre-built directory is updated.

  22. Now we are ready to boot our rebuilt images using JTAG. So, reset ZedBoard (with JP13 shorted) or repower and run. Verify that we have same version of U-boot (2013.07) and Kernel 3.8.11, but build date is new.

  24. Now, lets download new versions of U-boot and Linux kernel for Xilinx Git repository. More about Xilinx repo you can read on

  26. Let's see what we got.
  27. d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ cd /opt/linux-xlnx-git/
    d9@ubuntu:/opt/linux-xlnx-git$ git describe

    VERSION = 3
    PATCHLEVEL = 12
    SUBLEVEL = 0

    VERSION = 2013
    PATCHLEVEL = 10

  28. So, for what its worth, for Kernel we got Git tag version 2013.4 and Makefile saying its 3.12.0. And for U-boot Git tag is 2013.4 and Makefile 2013.10.
    Now we can copy Linux Kernel and U-Boot sources into our PetaLinux projects, but first we have to create some directories
  29. d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ mkdir components
    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ mkdir components/linux-kernel
    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ mkdir components/u-boot

    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ cp -r /opt/linux-xlnx-git components/linux-kernel/
    d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ cp -r /opt/u-boot-xlnx-git components/u-boot/

  30. Configure PetaLinux project to include new kernel and u-boot sources. Run petalinux-config.
  31. d9@ubuntu:~/Projects/Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013.3$ petalinux-config

  32. In a main menu select 'kernel' submenu and then switch from kernel 'xlnx-3.8' kernel to our new 'linux-xlnx-git'.
  33. In a main menu select 'u-boot' submenu and then switch to 'u-boot-xlnx-git'.
  34. In a main menu select 'u-boot config' and then switch to 'other'.
  35. In a main menu select 'u-boot config target (NEW)' and type 'zynq_zed'.
  36. zynq3_001

  37. Save configuration and exit from menus. You can read more about options for Xilinx version of U-boot at , unfortunately not much more.

    I went thru Xilinx Wiki pages and all PetaLinux documentation for 13.10 version and found very little information about u-boot customization options. I also went thru U-boot configuration scripts for PetaLinux and U-boot sources and found no specific different between Zynq_Zed and Zynq_Zc70x targets. Where is no 'MicroZed' target and I'm not sure if Zed or Zc70x will work for it.
    If somebody knows more about Xilinx patches and/or configuration for U-boot - please share information. I'm in particular interesting if I will need to change U-boot configuration to support my custom board, what and how.

  38. Anyway. Now we can rebuild whole thing.

  44. Verify that now U-boot version is 2013.10 and Linux Kernel is 3.12.0
  45. U-Boot 2013.10 (Feb 19 2014 - 15:47:16)

    Linux Avnet-Digilent-ZedBoard-2013_3 3.12.0+ #2 SMP PREEMPT Wed Feb 19 15:49:58 EST 2014 armv7l GNU/Linux

    Congratulations! We got latest Xilinx patched u-boot and kernel version running on our ZedBoard.

    P.S. I tried to download and build vanilla Linux Kernel versions 3.12.11 and 3.13.3 from kernel.org - it builds and boots, but some hardware not working. So, we may need to apply some Xilinx Zynq related patches to vanilla kernel, but this is another topic.

    Great and clean material, thank you!
    I'm also working with a ZeadBoard and I've used this recipe in order to use a recent Xilinx Linux version.
    My motivation is to used flash above 16MB.
    Did you realize that after you bring up the new version, you no longer access to flash? Do you have an explanation for that?

    Hope you could help me.
    Best regards,
    Rui.

    Hey Rui,

    Right now Xilinx replacing 'Zynq' kernel modules. Reason is - most of the Zynq IP is aindustry standard blocks. So, for example, in Kernel 3.13.0 for I2C and SPI we have to use 'Cadence' drivers and for MMC it's a 'Arasan'.
