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.
Building a FireSim-compatible Fedora Image¶
To download and build a Fedora-based Linux distro for FireSim, do the following:
cd firesim/sw/firesim-software ./sw-manager.py -c fedora-disk.json build
Testing or customizing the target software using QEMU¶
Before running this target software on FireSim, you may choose to boot the
image in QEMU (a high-performance functional simulator). From here, you will
have access to the internet and can install packages (e.g. by using
install foo), download files, or perform any configuration tasks you’d like
before booting in FireSim. To boot an image in QEMU, simply use the launch
./sw-manager.py -c fedora-disk.json launch
Booting Fedora on FireSim¶
In order to boot Fedora on FireSim, change your workload to
fedora-uniform.json in runtime_config.ini and boot as usual.
