PetaLinux 2014.2 - petalinux-config Does Not Read Vivado-Exported XML If HDF File Already Exists

Description

I have previously created a PetaLinux 2014.2 project with an HDF file (<PETALINUX_PROJ_DIR>/subsystems/linux/hw-description).

When I attempt to import a new XML-based hardware description with "petalinux-config --get-hw-description" , the newer configuration is not used.

Solution

If PetaLinux 2014.2 detects an HDF file in the <PETALINUX_PROJ_DIR>/subsystems/linux/hw-description directory, it uses this file instead of XML-based hardware descriptions. 

To allow the XML file to be used, first remove the HDF file from the <PETALINUX_PROJ_DIR>/subsystems/linux/hw-description directory and then re-run "petalinux-config --get-hw-description".
