The Salvator-X board based on Renesas R-Car H3 SoC is now supported in Xen upstream.

Build approaches

There is 2 possible ways to build Xen for this board:

  • Yocto build
  • Bulding without buildsystem

Yocto Build

Follow setup are based & tested on official Renesas Yocto 2.12.0 release (https://github.com/renesas-rcar/meta-renesas/releases/tag/Renesas-Yocto-v2.12.0)

  1. Clone your Renesas build as described in Yocto Reference Manual.
  2. Clone additional repository in the same directory
  3. Initialize yocto build environment
     source poky/oe-init-build-env 
  4. Copy local.conf & bblayers.conf from supplied xen layer
     cp meta-platform-xen/meta-rcar-gen3-xen/doc/*.conf ./conf/ 

Bulding without buildsystem


Check u-boot environment variables

Set follow configuration in u-boot command prompt.
