- Change to the directory under which you want PetaLinux projects
to be created. For example, if you want to create projects under /home/user:
$ cd /home/user
petalinux-createcommand on the command console:
petalinux-create -t project -s <path-to-bsp>
The board being referenced is based on the BSP installed. The output is similar to the following output:
INFO: Create project: INFO: Projects: INFO: * xilinx-zcu102-v<petalinux-version> INFO: has been successfully installed to /home/user/ INFO: New project successfully created in /home/user/In the above example, when the command runs, it tells you the projects that are extracted and installed from the BSP. If the specified location is on the Network File System (NFS), it changes the TMPDIR to /tmp/<projname-timestamp-id>; otherwise, it is set to $PROOT/build/tmpCAUTION:Do not create the symbolic link to a local file system on the NFS file system. You can not use NFS for the location of the ‘tmp’ directory in the build; it will fail.Note: PetaLinux requires a minimum of 50 GB and a maximum of 100 GB space on TMPDIR to build the project successfully when you create the project on NFS.
If /tmp/<projname_timestamp-id> is also on NFS, then it throws an error. You can change TMPDIR while creating the PetaLinux project using the following command
petalinux-create -t project -s <PATH_TO_PETALINUX_PROJECT_BSP> --tmpdir <TMPDIR PATH>
Alternatively, you can also create/modify it at any time using. Do not configure the same location as TMPDIR for two different PetaLinux projects as it can cause build errors.
lsfrom /home/user to see the created project(s). For more details on the structure of a PetaLinux project, see PetaLinux Project Structure.
