(Xilinx Answer 65289) PetaLinux 2015.2 - PetaLinux Fails To Install Due to Missing OpenSSL Dependency

PetaLinux 2015.2.1 contains the following build collateral:

Linux kernel version 3.19 (Git tag: xilinx-v2015.2.03)

U-Boot version 2015.04 (Git tag: xilinx-v2015.2 )

Xilinx device tree generator (Git tag: xilinx-v2015.2.02)

Note: While PetaLinux 2015.2.1 uses the same Linux kernel and U-Boot versions as PetaLinux 2015.2, there are fundamental differences in their configuration and patch set.

This prevents direct migration from PetaLinux 2015.2 to PetaLinux 2015.2.1. 

Direct use of a PetaLinux 2015.2 generated project with PetaLinux 2015.2.1 is not supported.
