Linux and Pynq Z2

Hello everyone,

For a project I use a Pynq Z2 board, but i don’t know anything about it, so excuse me if my questions seem stupid.
I want to use Linux on my board but I have many problems to find informations or guide. I have read lot of things but it’s really hard to understand and find simple documentation.
I would like to known, in a first time, if it’s possible to deploy Linux on this board ?
And if so, does anyone know a simple deployment guide or anything else that can help a beginner please.
Maybe an image already exists, but I haven’t found it.

Thank you in advance for your help, have a nice day !

Hi @castisen,

Welcome to the PYNQ community.

Yes, it is possible to run Linux on the PYNQ-Z2. We provide pre-build SD card images (Ubuntu-based) for the PYNQ-Z2 with everything you need to get started.

You can find a getting started guide here


Hello @marioruiz ,
Thank you very much for your reply, I will try to install the image on the SD card and move on.
Have a nice day!
