Open Source Linux/Petalinux: Is there support for CAN at Linux Opensource provided by Xilinx?


Is there support for CAN in the pre-built Linux images provided by Xilinx?


The number of functions available in the Busybox provided in the Xilinx pre-built root filesystem is very limited and does not have the option to activate the "can0" peripheral.

You can use your own root filesystem and include the "iproute2" module that contains the functionality that activates the "can0" port (i.e. ifconfig can0 up).
