PTF file in Qsys?

Hello, 

 

While compiling uClinux, a command is required to send the hardware features and corresponding addresses i.e. "make vendor_hwselect SYSPTF='path to ptf file' ". 

 

However PTF file is generated by SOPC. Newer version of SOPC, Qsys does not generate a PTF file. 

 

To compile the uClinux for a environment created by Qsys, What can be used? 

 

Thanks.

PTFs are no longer created, and the uCLinux build no longer requires you to run the hwselect command. Instead, you should create a device tree from the sopcinfo file using sopc2dts.

Thanks a lot. Can you provide me a fresh source of uClinux that does not require the hwselect and can run on Nios II?
