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.


May 2024 PLCT have releases a new repo for Fedora RV64 OCI image, currently F39 and F40 is avaliable.

Jun 2023 A new Fedora 38 OCI image for riscv64 is available.

May 2023 T-Head platform (Sipeed LicheePi 4A) description and installation how-to at Architectures/RISC-V/T-Head

Jan 2022 PLCT Lab have another new koji build system for Riscv64.

Oct 2021 Community member made a Fedora based BSP image for Allwinner D1 Nezha board. The information is available at Architectures/RISC-V/Allwinner. Note: Allwinner D1 is NOT officially supported by Fedora yet.

May 2018 A Koji build system instance is now building Fedora packages.

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.
