Architectures/RISC-V

From FedoraProject

Jump to: navigation, search

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.

As of 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.
