LinuxΒΆ

Linux and related tools are - for the most part - already in the upstream repositories of the respective projects. As noted on the Debian RISC-V wiki (with some updates):

  • binutils: upstreamed (2.28 is the first release with RISC-V support)
  • gcc: upstreamed (7.1 is the first release with RISC-V support)
  • glibc: upstreamed (2.27 is the first release with RISC-V support)
  • linux kernel: upstreamed (the architecture core code went into kernel 4.15; kernel 4.19 contains all drivers necessary for booting a simulated system to userland)
  • gdb: upstreamed in master (in the release process)
  • qemu: upstreamed (2.12 is the first release with RISC-V support)

Linux-enabled platforms currently described in the Getting Started Guide include:

There is also a generic QEMU 64-bit RISC-V simulation target running BusyBear Linux.

Debian and Fedora ports are also available, for more information see:
