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, RV64GC) architecture.
February/March 2018 Stage4 disk images are available. These are bootable in qemu and let you try out Fedora/RISC-V. Make sure you read the readme.txt file first. The development environment is quite complete with GCC 7.3.1, Perl 5.26, Python 2 and 3, git, systemd, various editors including vi and emacs, many
-devel packages, and some X11 packages. It will be enough for most developers to start porting their software to RISC-V. The main missing things at the moment are Ruby, Java and Gtk 3.
Status January/February 2018 The third and hopefully final bootstrap of Fedora 27 has started. Please follow progress or try building it yourself via this git repository. Expected timelines are: 1-2 weeks until stage 3 disk images are available, 1-2 months until stage 4 pristine RPM-built disk images are available, 2 months until we are autobuilding regular Fedora packages, 3-6 months until we have koji-shadow functionality.
