Running Linux on a Xilinx XUP Board

A tutorial for booting a fully functional operating system based on the Linux 2.4 kernel on a Xilinx University Program Virtex II-Pro based development board was presented by John H. Kelm. Furthermore, a reconfigurable hardware accelerator that can be accessed directly by applications or via a character device driver was described.

Crosstool that is a software package created by Dan Kegel that allows x86 Step 11 Linux machines to target the PowerPC405 core of the XUP board was applied.
