Unable to build petalinux 2021.2 for zynq-adrv9361-z7035-bob-cmos

Category: Software
Software Version: Petalinux 2021.2

I have been following the analog devices guide on setting up a project for petalinux.

I have not had any issues building the base analog devices design. However, I am having issues building for zynq-adrv9361-z7035-bob-cmos.

When i specify
KERNEL_DTB = "zynq-adrv9361-z7035-bob"  

the build succeeds. However, if i change it to the cmos variant like so:
KERNEL_DTB = "zynq-adrv9361-z7035-bob-cmos"  

i get the following error:
sed: can't read /home/petalinux_project/build/tmp/work/zynq_generic-xilinx-linux-gnueabi/device-tree/xilinx-v2021.2+gitAUTOINC+c0acd8f064-r0/zynq-adrv9361-z7035-bob.dts

I am not sure why this is happening. I tried specifying the manual device tree include directory to

but still the build will fail. Same behavior was observed when building
zynq-adrv9364-z7020-bob-cmos vs zynq-adrv9364-z7020-bob

  • Hello,

    `zynq-adrv9361-z7035-bob-cmos.dts` includes the `zynq-adrv9361-z7035-bob.dts` (same applies to zynq-adrv9364-z7020-bob-cmos that includes zynq-adrv9364-z7020-bob)

    These special cases are handled here:

    And the error occurs when the sed command is executed here:

    Can you please check that the environment variables are properly set and the dts files are present at the location required?



  • The device dts files aren't in WORKDIR, only the pl-delete files. 

  • Yes that is what I am seeing. I just built for the cmos kernel dtb and it failed. here are the contents of the directory in question:

    The corner case does not seem to be handled on my system. How do I go about checking the values of the petalinux environment variables, and which ones do you want me to check?

  • Changing the path in the corner case from WORKDIR to KERNEL_DTB_PATH resolves the problem.

    For example:


    Do you want a pull request for this? I can't actually test the build since I don't have a machine with on old enough distro to run petalinux :(


    Can you tell me which branch are you using? You should be using 2021_R2...

    What do you have in your petalinux conf file? Are you only setting KERNEL_DTB? Lastly, can you paste the contents of the do_configue log file?

    We need to figure why the dts files are not being copied into your WORKDIR... On my weekly CI, those projects are building without any issues so I would also suggest a fresh clean build...

  • I was using 2021_R1, at the time of creating my project that was the most recent branch, I just switched to 2021_R2, that fixed the issue. Thank you for bringing that to my attention!
