PetaLinux supports package management system for Zynq 7000, Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, and AMD Versalâ„¢ devices. Use the following steps to configure and use the package management system:

Figure 1. Package Management
  1. Enable DNF through petalinux-config -c rootfs. Enable the following configs to use DNF.
    • Image Features > [*] package management
    • No need to set the base package feed url in Image features > package-management > package-feed-uris.

    • No need to set the package feed architecture in Image features > package management > package-feed-archs.

      From 2021.1, specifying package-feed-uris and package-feed-archs is optional. PetaLinux or Yocto set the uris and set the archs based on the project.

      The possible archs are available in https://petalinux.xilinx.com/sswreleases/rel-v2021.2/generic/rpm

  2. Build the project.
    #petalinux-build
  3. Boot Linux in SD or in JTAG boot mode.
  4. Check for .repo file on target in /etc/yum.repos.d/ as follows:
