where can I find documentation on Altera Soc linux

Honored Contributor II

hi all  

I'm trying to write software for a Linux application on Cyclone V Soc Chip (DE0-Nano_SoC board). 

I succeed in running the hello world on the board and use the LEDs & switches. 

now I want to use the SPI to connect to en external device.  

I need the correct command with explanations. 

Is there a linux tutorial ? I can't find one in google & on Altera Support.

you should first get good hands on user space applications on board. any generic linux tutorial wil get u started coz most of generic linux command wil work here. then as per ur device specs u may hav to write linux device driver at advance level.
