Running Fedora on FireSim¶
You can boot Fedora disk images pulled from upstream on FireSim simulations. These instructions assume you’ve already run through the tutorials.
Fedora currently requires some tweaks to the Linux configuration. To rebuild
Linux with this configuration, first head to
linux-config-firesim file with
and then re-run
sw/firesim-software. This will build a copy
bbl-vmlinux that is compatible with Fedora.
Next, head to
deploy/workloads and run
make fedora-uniform. This will download the
latest version of the disk image and apply some patches to it to ensure it
functions correctly on FireSim.
Finally, you can change your workload to
fedora-uniform.json to boot Fedora on your simulations.
