Release Date
2022.2 English

In earlier releases, u-boot-zynq-scr.bbappend and bootcmd files were available in meta-user layers. In the 2022.2 release, they are removed from the meta-user layer and moved to Yocto eSDKs at <plnx-proj-root>/components/yocto/layers/meta-xilinx/meta-xilinx-bsp/recipes-bsp/u-boot/u-boot-zynq-scr. You can find these files on running the petalinux-config/petalinux-build command.


Added buildtools-extended as an option in petalinux-config. Enable this option to use gcc and other binaries as part of the PetaLinux tool. If you are using the newer Yocto version, Honister, to build the project, the gcc version should be higher than version 6 which is not available by default in most of the supported operating systems. Enable this option to unblock this issue.


AUTO-LOGIN option in PetaLinux tool is disabled by default. User can enable this with petalinux-config -c rootfs -→ Image Features  -→ [ ] auto-login if required..

Linux Components Selection

Added Image selector menuconfig option. It is disabled by default.
