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.


Feb 2018 Stage4 disk images are available. These are bootable in qemu and let you try out a minimal Fedora/RISC-V.

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.
