(IN-PERSON) The Future of Linux on RISC-V - Drew Fustini, BayLibre

Feedback form is now closed.

This talk will explore the future of Linux on RISC-V, an open instruction set (ISA).  I walk through the pieces needed to boot Linux on RISC-V including the Privileged Architecture, SBI, OpenSBI and U-Boot.  I will explore how to run a complete system including binary distributions and how to build from source yourself.  I will look at what Linux-capable "hard" RISC-V SoC's currently exist and those that are on the horizon. I will also talk about how support in Linux for RISC-V is continuing to evolve such as the introduction of KVM RISC-V support and look at RISC-V hardware support that is in the process of being upstreamed. I will describe how to participate in the creation of RISC-V specifications, and how the new RISC-V Platform Specification is trying to standardize boot and runtime requirements.  Google Slides: https://tinyurl.com/rv-linux-21
