Oldest Kernel for Cyclone V

Hi, 

 

This may seem like an odd question, what is the earliest kernel that supports the Cyclone V ? I can find reference to 3.13 

 

I am working on a project that requires IEC 61508 SIL-1 certification. One of the arguments we can deploy is 'proven in use' so, in this case, the older the better. 

 

Of course if anybody out there has already been down this path all help or advice will be gratefully received :) 

 

Regards, 

Andrew

Hi, I'm not sure where you got the information, but if we refer back to the older 13.1 golden reference release note, it should be V3.9

For personal opinion, if you wanr PROVE of usage, do try to match the kernel version to the latest soceds version they have for current V15.01, the best is using v3.10 LTSi. If you working on another version ther eis a posibility may see some incompatibility issues.

However, if you still want to go with 3.14, you may show us something new for discuttion (issues, error).

As I said in the original post the project that I am working on is required to be IEC 61508 SIL-1 certified. You can build on argument based on 'proven in use'. In consequence an older kernel has been used more.

I think as long as you ever seen the example in rocketboards, those kernel version should be proven in use.
