Hello all, 

Thanks to Altera for providing such a great platform for learning! 

 

I am new to Linux operating system. I want to learn it and use it for Altera Arria V SoC Kit (https://www.altera.com/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/kit-arria-v-soc.html). 

Please suggest me how to start. Where can I learn basic Linux and start porting the Linux OS to Arria V SoC kit? How should I choose the best Linux OS for this kit?  

Thank you all in advance. 

Regards

Hello,

 

We are using Altera Arria 10AS066KF40 and read the above link.

We need to know how to configure parameters(such as UART, GPIO, Ethernet) according to our custom hardware so that we can port OS.

 

Eg. Do we need to change .dtb files ?

 

Thanks.
