As described in Installing the PetaLinux Tool, the PetaLinux tool has four eSDKs: aarch64, arm, microblaze_full and microblaze_lite. While installing the tool, you can specify your preferred eSDK, for example, if you are working on a Zynq platform, you can only install the arm eSDK into the PetaLinux tool. However, by default, all platform eSDKs are installed into the tool install directory. To install the desired eSDK, follow these examples:

  • To install only the Zynq eSDK for arm architecture
    $ ./petalinux-v<petalinux-version> --dir <INSTALL_DIR> --platform "arm"
  • To install microblaze_lite and microblaze_full eSDKs for MicroBlaze architecture
    $ ./petalinux-v<petalinux-version> --dir <INSTALL_DIR> --platform "microblaze_lite microblaze_full"
