Getting Linux working on Zynq is very simple, following steps are required

  1. Vivado/SDK/Petalinux 2015.4 Installed
  2. Create Vviado Project, configure PS, Export HDF
  3. Ceate new petalinux project
  4. Import HDF into project
  5. petalinux-build
  6. copy boot.bin and image.ub to SD Card

This is generic howto, everything is setup for your by the Vivado->Petalinux flow. Note, the boot.bin generated by petalinux may not always work, in such case it is recommended to make the boot.bin with SDK GUI or command line tools manually.
