DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owners would know how get the best out of that hardware.

The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.

If you need help to get Debian running on your hardware, please have a look at our user support channels where you may find specific channels (mailing list, IRC channel) dedicated to certain types of hardware.

Installing Debian

NFS Root

  • server IP
  • client IP

On the server you need :

apt-get install nfs-kernel-server debootstrap tftpd
if you have ARM hardware at hand (like [[InstallingDebianOn/CompuLab/PC-Utilite/wheezy|PC Utilite]])
debootstrap wheezy /srv/zc702 http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian
or if you don't have ARM hardware at hand
debootstrap --foreign --arch armhf wheezy pc-utilite http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian

follow PC Utilite to handle the debootstrap second stage

edit /srv/zc702/inittab, last new line :

T0:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyPS0 115200 vt100

edit /srv/zc702/etc/securetty last new lines :

# Zynq zc70x

If you use ARM hardware as a server :

chroot /srv/zc702

download 2014.1-release.tar.xz from Zynq Release untar it

tar xf 2014.1-release.tar.xz
cp zc70x/zc702/devicetree.dtb /srv/tftp
cp uImage /srv/tftp

Start the zc702 board with SW16 switch to :













Stop autoboot (you need to be connected using the rs232 usb cable)

screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

setenv bootargs ${console} root=/dev/nfs nfsroot= ip=
setenv serverip
setenv ipaddr
setenv bootcmd "tftp 0x3000000 uImage && tftp 0x2A00000 devicetree.dtb && bootm 0x3000000 - 0x2A00000"

Boot again your board and you should have access to a login in the rs232 console.
