Zynq-7000 SoC ZC702 Evaluation Kit, Base TRD - Linux prompt on UART not visible on bootup

Description

Using the Zynq-7000 Base TRD, together with the UART console (teraterm / hyperterminal etc), the Linux shell prompt does not appear immediately upon bootup.

Why is this the case?

Solution

The Linux shell prompt will not appear until the graphical Qt application has exited. This is because in the Linux init script, the Qt-based Graphical application is launched as the last step in the bootup.

If the Linux prompt on UART is desired on bootup, edit the "init.sh" file on the SD card and remove / comment the line that runs the "./run_sobel.sh -qt".
