# QEMU Zynq Petalinux setup on Linux Hosts
## Install QEMU
......@@ -52,21 +56,46 @@ To boot Petalinux with QEMU execute the following command:
-kernel <PATH_TO_PETALINUX>/zc702/uImage \
-dtb <PATH_TO_PETALINUX>/zc702/devicetree.dtb \
--initrd <PATH_TO_PETALINUX>/zc702/uramdisk.image.gz \
-net nic -net user,hostfwd=tcp:
-net nic -net user,hostfwd=tcp:,tftp=<PATH_TO_HOST_DIR>
This will boot Petalinux on the _zc702_ you can either login directly in the QEMU terminal as user `root` or you can login via ssh with the following command:
ssh localhost -p 10022 -l root
ssh -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -p 10022 root@localhost
Since the Petalinux guest generates a new SSH key each time it boots the options `-o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no` are used which disable the key check.
You can terminate qemu by pressing [CTRL+A] [X] in the qemu terminal.
## Filesharing
To easily share files between host and guest you can mount a directory of the host via ssh (requires `sshfs`) by excuting the following commands:
Petalinux was booted with the `-net` option `tftp=<PATH_TO_HOST_DIR>` which started a ftp server on the host with the root directory `<PATH_TO_HOST_DIR>`.
You can retrieve files from this directory on the guest with the following command:
tftp -r <HOST_FILE> -g
unfortunately the server is read only.
## Compile for Petalinux
You can find a Hello World C program in [src](./src) and a Makefile to compile it for Petalinux. Compile it with:
Copy the binary to your directory for `tftp`:
cp helloworld <PATH_TO_HOST_DIR>
On the guest system execute the following commands to run the Hello World program:
ssh -p 10022 localhost -l root "mkdir /media/sshfs"
sshfs -o port=10022,nonempty root@localhost:/media/sshfs <PATH_TO_MOUNT_DIR>
tftp -r helloworld -g
chmod +x helloworld
This will create the `/media/sshfs` directory on the guest which contains all files from `<PATH_TO_MOUNT_DIR>`.
all: helloworld
helloworld: helloworld.c
$(CC) $(CFLAGS) helloworld.c -o helloworld
.PHONY clean:
-rm helloworld
#include <stdio.h>
int main() {
float a = 3.14;
float b = 42.23;
printf("Hello World! %f\n", a+b);
return 0;
