Hello, 

 

I'm trying to get uClinux working on my development board. I walked all the steps i founded on alterawiki 

 

At the moment that i want to download the image to the board by the following actions: 

 

cd nios2-linux/uClinux-dist 

nios2-configure-sof /home/bart/Nios2.sof  

nios2-download -g /home/bart/nios2-linux/uClinux-dist/images/linux.initramfs.gz 

 

I get the following error on the last step: 

 

/home/bart/altera/11.1/nios2eds/bin/nios2-download: line 596: nios2-elf-objcopy: command not found 

/home/bart/altera/11.1/nios2eds/bin/nios2-gdb-server-wrapped: error while loading shared libraries: libjtag_client.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 

rm: cannot remove `/home/bart/nios2-linux/uClinux-dist/images/linux.initramfs.gz.srec': No such file or directory 

 

 

Can anyone help me with my problem?

Did you try to launch sdk_shell in nios2eds folder ? 

 

cd ~/altera/11.1/nios2eds 

./nios2_command_shell.sh 

./sdk_shell 

exit

So nios2-configure myfgpa.sof command is working i suppose ? 

 

But download Kernel image failed. 

 

Did you try to use nios2-download -g myapp.elf command with a simple program like "hello world" on your fpga sof ?
