Kuiper Linux on ZCU102 - No Display

Category: Software
Product Number: AD9081 Kuiper Linux on ZCU102
Software Version: image_2022-08-04-ADI-Kuiper-full


Hope this is correct Forum.

I'm getting an AD9081 MxFE (part of the X-Band Radar Dev Platform) so I thought my first step should be to get Kuiper Linux up and running on the ZCU102 board.

I've used "image_2022-08-04-ADI-Kuiper-full" which is the latest as of today.

I've used "Image" from zynqmp-common and I've tried a couple of "BOOT.BIN & system.dtb" from the AD9081 directories for boot-up.

The board does boot up with usual boot messages in the UART terminal.

I can't get the "Display Port" GUI running.

I've applied the "fix" of creating xorg.conf as seen here

root@analog:~# cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf 
Section "Device"
  Identifier "myfb"
  Driver "fbdev"
  Option "fbdev" "/dev/fb0"

Note: there is no "fb0" device when I ls -l the /dev/ directory

My display is "dead" e.g. No Penguin or cursor or anything...

I'm guessing it's probably related to the following Error message during the Linux Boot;

[FAILED] Failed to start VNCServer for X11

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Many Thanks,

  • Thanks lulia and andrei.

    Turns out it was my Monitor. I tried another Monitor with Display Port input, a Dell very similar to one in the Xilinx list, and Kuiper graphics appeared but only if I did the frame buffer mod (create an xorg.conf file). Unable to change resolutions or anything but at least I've got a display.
