Hi Sean,


Is the Linaro distribution possible on MicroZed? I spent a long time trying to get OpenEmbedded to happen with no success. The Linaro distribution was a snap and I got GNURadio running no problem on the ZedBoard.




For reference on getting OE working, see our Embedded page:



Though I can't speak directly to the MicroZed.




Thanks, all, for the pointers. I’ll see if I can get MicroZed boot files to launch into the GNU Radio rootfs image.

Hi Sean,

The embedded page might be more useful:
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/embedded Especially
check out the link to SDKs. There's a rootfs and modules built for a
zedboard, all you'll need are device specific boot files. Just create
the right partitions on your card and the provided rootfs and modules
should be sufficient. (extract the rootfs to the / mounted partition
on the SD card). Hopefully that can get you booting
