Is the Stratix 10 SX HPS Write Protected?

I plan to use the Linux image distributed by RocketBoards.org on a Stratix 10 SX. Is that Linux image write protected or can files be saved/modified during run time? Do I need to perform some sort of shutdown to the processor before removing power to prevent corrupting system files?

Hi, For sure you cannot edit the Linux kernel while running, but You can edit and execute programs on Linux, it is editable. Am I got your point correctly?

Yes. If I have an unexpected power off Linux is safe and files that I dealing with in my own executables are at risk. As long as I manage writing to files I am ok.

Yes, In case of not saving the edited files and unexpected shutdown happen, you will lose your last edit. Plus, where are you saving your files? SD? or DDRAM? Regards.
