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 non-graphical 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.


Disk images, RPMs, SRPMs. Log files and status from the autobuilder.
The autobuilder source.
Scripts used to build the stage4 disk image.
Linux kernel build scripts and patches
The COPR repository (for Fedora 24/x86_64) containing: QEMU, Spike, cross-compiler toolchain (obsolete)

Bootstrapping is over so the following links are now obsolete:
