RISC-V (pronounced "RISC Five") is an open source instruction set architecture (ISA). This project, informally called Fedora/RISC-V, aims to provide a complete Fedora experience on the RISC-V (64 bit, RV64G) architecture.

Status November 2017 Linux has support since 4.15. We are waiting for glibc to go upstream which is expected to happen in February 2018. At that point we will be re-bootstrapping the whole project using the final ABIs.

Status November 2016 The port supports about two thirds of the packages in Fedora 25, so it is quite complete and ready to use. Most important command-line programs just work (and even a few graphical ones). However if you are using your own hardware then you will need to supply a compatible kernel and bootloader and just use the Fedora userspace. Fedora/RISC-V does not support 32 bit or embedded hardware.

Bootstrapping is over so the following links are now obsolete:
