    Phoronix: RISC-V's Kernel Support Continues Maturing With Linux 5.3

    In-step with more RISC-V hardware becoming available over time, the Linux kernel architecture support for RISC-V has continued maturing and with Linux 5.3 is in better shape...

    Please suggest good Risc-V dev boards with linux support.

      I am looking forward to some RPi style/priced RISC-V boards...

        Open software on open hardware...

        Someday.

          Check the list of RISC-V cores and SoCs. I think there is only the SiFive Freedom Unlimited and the PolarFire socs that supports Linux. The devkit costs $999.

          Unfortunately it looks like there is none. I would really like to see that too!
          Check the list.

            once they can hit some economies of scale on a few designs, it might start being feasible

              I hope all RISC-V support will be mainline, and that chips will be widely supported. It would be nice to avoid a dark age similar to that one with ARM.

                It sucks to have to wait. I wish we already had cheap Linux-compatible SoCs. Hope we get that soon.

                Yeah, I hope so too. Unfortunately, I believe not. I believe the situation will be the same as ARM, or even worse.
                At least there are some effort to standardize ARM boards intended for servers with ACPI.
                So with RISC-V it is likely to be the same problematic situation as ARM.

                  The HiFive1 is around that price. It has 16 kb ram, so think more microcontroller and less SBC.

                  Otherwise, we have to wait. You can always run one in QEMU, qemu-system-riscv64 last time I tried. You can play around with it and do tests.

                    Unfortunately nothing at the moment. Sadly this is exactly what RISC-V needs to get a volume platform going. Frankly I’d be very happy with a $100 board!!!!😜😜 Well I would be if the board had 8GB of RAM and some sort of port supporting modern SSD’s.

                    In other words I’d be willing to pay slightly more for a board that helps bootstrap the RISC- ecosystem. That board would have to perform as good or better than the ARM boards currently available.

                    I also dream about an open board built upon Apples A13 ARM chip that is coming. While I can’t see that ever really happening there is no doubt in my mind that Apple has really driven the rest of the ARM industry forward performance wise. It would be really nice to see such performance in a low cost Raspberry PI like board.
