About bootburn -l option in DrivePX2

Is there a way to install Linux directly on the hardware without hypervisor on DrivePX2? Will “bootburn -l” do that?

Also, is there a document that gives little insight about Vibrante Hypervisor? I could find little information from http://docs.nvidia.com/drive/nvvib_docs/index.html#page/NVIDIA%20Vibrante%20Linux%20DPX%20Development%20Guide%2Ftheory_of_operation_dpx.html%23wwpID0ELHA but it does not provide much insight. Will be interested to know the performance difference with or without hypervisor etc.

Thanks

Dear anup.pemmaiah,

There’s a bit more clear description of the flashing commands here. Thanks.

Hi SteveNV,

Thank you for the link. I have been following the info in the link for all my work, but it does not provide detailed answer for my questions. I had read in some link that Vibrante Hypervisor can be run as a Level-1 hypervisor (Just the hypervisor on the bare metal without any OS and the guest OS’s can then be loaded on them) or as part of Linux(which I assume something similar to Qemu/KVM). Not sure if that article gave the correct information about the Vibrante Hypervisor. Therefore, I wanted to get more information about the hypervisor.

Thanks
Anup

Dear anup.pemmaiah,

The bootburn -l option will flash Linux without HV.
The Foundation document give more information about Virtualization.

Thank you SteveNV. That helps. I have another question about flashing.

I see on a DrivePX2 system there are two directories under /lib/modules
$ ls /lib/modules/
4.4.38-rt49-tegra 4.4.38-tegra

While flashing with “./bootburn.sh -b p2379c01-t186b -l”, looks like it is taking by default quickboot_qspi_rt_linux.cfg file and flashing into real time linux kernel. Since I see non-rt (4.4.38-tegra) in /lib/modules, is there way to reboot without flashing into non-rt(4.4.38-tegra) kernel or should I reflash the board with “./bootburn.sh -b p2379c01-t186b -l -k quickboot_qspi_linux_intramfs.cfg” to boot into non-rt image?

Thanks
Anup
