Booting Linux on Cyclone V DE1-SoC

Hello, I am trying to get a basic Linux that I built with Yocto to boot on my DE1-SoC board.  

 

I followed the directions here: https://rocketboards.org/foswiki/documentation/yoctodorabuildwithmetaaltera 

 

I now have the following files in my build/deploy/images/cyclone5 directory. 

 

core-image-minimal-cyclone5-20180312013803.rootfs.cpio  

u-boot-cyclone5.img 

core-image-minimal-cyclone5-20180312013803.rootfs.ext3

core-image-minimal-cyclone5-20180312013803.rootfs.tar.gz  

u-boot-spl-cyclone5-2013.01.01-r0.bin 

core-image-minimal-cyclone5.cpio  

u-boot-spl-cyclone5.bin 

core-image-minimal-cyclone5.ext3  

zImage 

core-image-minimal-cyclone5.manifest  

zImage--4.15+git0+1d50e4d026-r0-cyclone5-20180310225044.bin 

core-image-minimal-cyclone5.tar.gz  

zImage--4.15+git0+1d50e4d026-r0-socfpga_cyclone5_de0_sockit-20180310225044.dtb

zImage-socfpga_cyclone5_sockit.dtb 

u-boot-cyclone5.bin  

zImage-socfpga_cyclone5_socrates.dtb 

 

I am trying to figure out what to do with these to put them on my SD Card to boot. I am given to understand that the first partition should be a FAT32 for u-boot, device-tree, and zImage and the second should be an ext4 for the rootfs. 

 

Has anyone been able to go through this guide and put the right file on an SD Card to boot it on Terasic DE1-SoC?

Hi, 

 

Maybe the next site will help you.

You need to write some codes to the SD card's boot sector. 

 

Regards,
