morning Bertl s3bastian
10:57
Bertl
here is how to boot the zedboard via jtag:
10:57
Bertl
you want to get the ZedBoard_CTT_v14.3_121017.zip for some files
10:58
Bertl
namely: ps7_init.tcl and stub.tcl
10:58
Bertl
you also need the following from your design:
10:59
Bertl
system.bit [PL bitstream]
10:59
Bertl
u-boot.elf or some other elf binary [PS 2nd stage]
11:00
Bertl
optionally (Linux Boot): zImage, ramdisk*.gz and devicetree.dtb
11:00
Bertl
start xmd, then in the xmd prompt do:
11:00
Bertl
connect arm hw
11:01
Bertl
fpga -f system.bit
11:01
Bertl
source ps7_init.tcl
11:01
Bertl
ps7_init
11:01
Bertl
init_user
11:01
Bertl
source stub.tcl
11:01
Bertl
target 64
11:01
Bertl
dow u-boot.elf
11:02
Bertl
con
11:03
Bertl
this will connect to the target, upload the fpga bitstream (PL), initialize memory and MIO devices (ps7_init/init_user) and load the second level bootloader (PS)
11:06
Bertl
the 'con' already starts the bootloader
11:06
Bertl
if you like, you can also upload the linux kernel, initramfs and the devicetree like this:
11:06
Bertl
dow -data zImage 0x8000
11:06
Bertl
dow -data ramdisk8M.image.gz 0x800000
11:07
Bertl
dow -data devicetree.dtb 0x1000000
11:07
Bertl
and boot the kernel/linux with:
11:07
Bertl
con 0x8000
11:07
Bertl
note that it takes quite a while to transfer the kernel and initramfs
11:16
s3bastian
good morning, just returned from the mensa for lunch ;)
11:17
s3bastian
sounds great, can I add that to the wiki?
11:17
Bertl
yeah, please, I have that on my todo list (the wiki) but please go ahead and put it there
11:19
s3bastian
well I can take care of documentation when you focus on the zedboard ;)
11:19
Bertl
deal! :)
11:19
s3bastian
xmd is the normal serial terminal console to the zedboard right?
11:19
Bertl
the debug/control environment via jtag
11:20
Bertl
I currently refer to it as the jtag interface (it does a lot more, but that is the main purpose)
11:20
Bertl
in contrast, the 'serial console' is the UART
11:21
s3bastian
I see, its a tool from xilinx right?
11:22
Bertl
yep, the zdeboard labels the connector (USB) as PROG
11:22
Bertl
the serial console (via UART) is labeled (UART)
11:22
s3bastian
do you have a URL at hand to acquire: http://zedboard_ctt_v14.3_121017.zip/
11:22
s3bastian
do you have a URL at hand to acquire: zedboard_ctt_v14.3_121017.zip/
11:22
Bertl
yep, sec, it can be downloaded from zedboard.org
11:22

11:24
s3bastian
xmd is integrated in the Eclipse IDE directly?
11:24
s3bastian
or how did you get it?
11:25
Bertl
yes, it is part of ISE, you can start it from commandline (as I do) or via the GUI
11:25
s3bastian
perfect, all added
11:25
s3bastian
great progress i would say!
11:25
s3bastian
well done
11:26
s3bastian
I cant tell you how grateful for all the work I am actually :)
11:26
Bertl
if you are at it, please also add the 'making jtag work' steps
11:26
Bertl
as they are a prerequisite to using xmd
11:26
s3bastian
will do
11:27
s3bastian
that was in this channel yesterday right?
11:27
Bertl
yep, if you need logs, just let me know
11:27
s3bastian
yes please

11:51
s3bastian
There is one sentence: The libCseDigilent_2.4.3-x86_64.tar.gz contains two files in ISE14x/plugin which need to be copied to the ISE plugin directory:
11:51
s3bastian
can you give me the names of the 2 files?, makes it a bit clearer I think
11:51
s3bastian
even if there are just the 2 ;)
12:05
Bertl
sure, sec
12:06
Bertl
libCseDigilent.so libCseDigilent.xml
