I appologise if this seems like a dumb question, but is it possible to get a Xilinx FPGA (specifically, the Artix-7 35T) to run Linux without the use of Xilinx's EDK? I have found some tutorials like this one but they seem to require the EDK (of which there is no free version I believe).
I am currently using Vivado and the Xilinx SDK and I can get a simple C "Hello World" program to run, but I am having problems with trying to get it to run Linux. Can I implement Linux using those two tools? Is there a good guide anywhere on how to do it?
