BIF File Changes - 2023.2 English

PetaLinux Tools Documentation: Reference Guide (UG1144)

Document ID

Release Date

Version
2023.2 English

In releases prior to 2021.2, PetaLinux used to maintain the bootgen.bif file in the <plnx-proj-root>/build directory and the images path pointed to /tmp/tmp-xxx/<imagename>. From 2022.2, the bootgen.bif file is generated in the <plnx-proj-root>/images/linux folder with the exact image paths from where you are pointing.

The following is the BIF file generated with the old releases for AMD Zynq™ UltraScale+™ MPSoC:

the_ROM_image:
{
[bootloader, destination_cpu=a53-0] /tmp/tmp.wpgCyCGXpV/zynqmp_fsbl.elf
[pmufw_image] /tmp/tmp.wpgCyCGXpV/pmufw.elf
[destination_device=pl] /tmp/tmp.wpgCyCGXpV/project_1.bit
[destination_cpu=a53-0, exception_level=el-3, trustzone] /tmp/tmp.wpgCyCGXpV/bl31.elf
[destination_cpu=a53-0, load=0x00100000] /tmp/tmp.wpgCyCGXpV/system.dtb
[destination_cpu=a53-0, exception_level=el-2] /tmp/tmp.wpgCyCGXpV/u-boot.elf
}
