Part Number: TIDEP-0100

Tool/software: Linux

Hello,

I have a customer who wanted to know if there was example Linux SD card boot image for this reference design. Looks like the test report is mostly about the hardware validation.

  • Hi Munan,

    There is a section on software in the TIDEP-0097 user guide starting at paragraph 3.1.2.1. It will guide you to clone and compile u-boot for the LCARD (name of the reference design). Then you will need the device tree which requires cloning the kernel then compiling the device trees. The design guide will let you know which git branch and defconfig to use.

    Since you're interested in the Processor SDK Linux rather than Android, you can actually start with the Processor SDK file system and kernel that we provide in the ".img" format on the SDK download page. After writing to the SD card you'll need to replace u-boot with the one you compiled. Then for this next step you'll need a Linux PC to add the "dra71-lcard" dtb file to the file system's boot directory.

    Once you have the u-boot built for the LCARD as well as the LCARD dtb you can use those to boot the Linux SDK as if it were any other EVM. 

    Regards,
    Ahmad
