Issues with Zybo and Petalinux

Jake Robinson


So I am trying to create a boot image for a Zybo board with 2016.2 Xilinx tools. I have created a Vivado project with the Zybo as the target board. Created a block diagram and setup the Zynq processing system on said diagram. Wrapped up the design, generated a bit file, and exported to SDK.

Now, following the user guide for Petalinux, I use


To create the project directory

petalinux-config --get-hw-description

to import the hdf file


to build the things

and finally

petalinux-package --boot --fsbl <file> --fpga <file> --u-boot

to get my boot images. However when booting up the ZYBO from the SD, it always hangs during the boot up process. Anybody know what is going on?

Hi @Axe,

I am not very experienced with embedded linux.  With that being said, unfortunately we do not have a BSP 2016.2 version yet but we do have a 2015.4 as mentioned hereHere is the 2016.2 PetaLinux Tools Documentation that might help with the process in 2016.2. Here is linux-digilent drivers that might be helpful as well.
