[FAQ] EVMK2GX: Build Linux for K2G - ARM

Part Number: EVMK2GX

How to build Linux for K2G - ARM? from the package "PROCESSOR-SDK-LINUX-K2G"

  • Pre-requisite:

    1. Linux-PC with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    2. Download and Install " PROCESSOR-SDK-LINUX-K2G — Linux Processor SDK for K2G " from (Make sure SDK is installed in "$HOME" directory)


    1. Install all the dependency packages (Open Linux bash terminal and give the following commands).
      sudo apt-get install diffstat texi2html texinfo subversion chrpath build-essential subversion ccache sed wget cvs coreutils unzip texinfo docbook-utils gawk help2man file g++ bison flex htmldoc chrpath libxext-dev xserver-xorg-dev doxygen socat u-boot-tools git
    2. Download the arm compiler toolchain using the below commands and extract them in "$HOME" directory
      tar -Jxvf gcc-arm-8.3-2019.03-x86_64-arm-linux-gnueabihf.tar.xz -C $HOME
      tar -Jxvf gcc-arm-8.3-2019.03-x86_64-aarch64-linux-gnu.tar.xz -C $HOME
      cd ~/gcc-arm-8.3-2019.03-x86_64-arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin
    3. Export Toolchain: Add the toolchain path to the "$PATH" variable
      vi ~/.bashrc
      export PATH=$HOME/gcc-arm-8.3-2019.03-x86_64-arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin:$PATH
      export PATH=$HOME/gcc-arm-8.3-2019.03-x86_64-aarch64-linux-gnu/bin:$PATH
    4. Building Linux: Goto "{SDK_FOLDER}/board-support/linux-{VERSION}/" folder and give below command
      make clean distclean ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf-
      ls arch/arm/configs/ | grep k2g
      make tisdk_k2g-evm_defconfig ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf-
      make -j8 zImage dtbs ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf-
      ls -al ./arch/arm/boot/dts/keystone-k2g-evm.dtb
      ls -al ./arch/arm/boot/zImage
    5. After successful compilation, inside "k2g_evm" directory "zImage" and "keystone-k2g-evm.dtb" file will be present.
