The Pynq github repo sets up ubuntu bionic but the top-level README claims that other Ubuntu distros could be used instead. How, specifically, can I build Pynq with ubuntu 16.04 as my desired distro?
The flexibility is there but it’s not something we’ve tested/supported. Using a new distro involves setting the UBUNTU_RELEASE=xenial in the Makefile and then creating the appropriate files in
ubuntu/xenial folder. You’ll need
multistrap.configto specify the packages you want to install
- Any patches you want to make to the base installation - we use this for auto-logging into the terminal and other small things.

Thanks for the info! I’m now running into a new problem that appears to be related to a recent issue - Creating Pynq for custom board gives error
