Hi everyone,
I'm a newbie to MIPSFPGA. I have ordered Altera DE2-115 board, Cyclone IV family.
Now I want to install Linux into this board under MIPS soft core. Following the tutorial from MIPSfpga-plus project on Github (link 1):
- I can build the MIPSFPGA SoC then program FPGA as MIPS32 core.
- I can build the Kernel and RootFS using MIPS toolchains, however using the defconfig and Device tree table (.dts) file for Altera DE10-Lite board and Altera MAX10 FPGA chip, which are provided by tutorial.
I can download vmlinux image into DE2-115 board, which was programmed as MIPS soft-core (using busbluster and openOCD). But I cannot boot the linux as tutorial. There is no console log after load an run vmlinux image.

Is there anyone install Linux on MIPSfpga board successfully? Can you share your experiment or your approach?
I have no idea which step is wrong when I follow the tutorial. Any comment is very welcome!
Thank you very much!

As you can see, I can load vmlinux image to MIPSfpga board, however cannot boot the linux os as tutorial.

P/S I'm sorry for my English if not clear description.
