Downloading Linux Distribution

For new users who have not used nios2 git before, download the tarball (2GB) ,as a normal user,


sha1sum nios2-linux-20100621.tar

3865fa6662a98e591f5dbff1421506bcb15ffd66 nios2-linux-20100621.ta2

tar xf nios2-linux-20100621.tar

cd nios2-linux


For existing nios2 git users, (with nios2-linux-20080619.tar or nios2-linux-20090730.tar) there is no need to download the tarball. You may add a new branch to track the nios2 mmu kernel and use clone to get the binary toolchain.

cd nios2-linux

git clone git://

cd linux-2.6

git fetch origin

git branch nios2mmu origin/nios2mmu

git checkout -f unstable-nios2mmu

git clean -f -x -d

cd ..

cd uClinux-dist

git fetch origin

git branch trunk origin/trunk

git checkout -f trunk

git clean -f -x -d

In short, to build with a kernel using the MMU, use the nios2mmu branch on linux-2.6, and the trunk branch on uClinux-dist. To build without an MMU, use the test-nios2 branch on linux-2.6, and the test-nios2 branch on uClinux-dist.
