Portland Linux/Unix Group General Meeting Announcement

Who: Drew Fustini
What: Linux on RISC-V
Where: https://meet.jit.si/pdxlinux
When: Thursday, November 4th, 2021 at 7pm
Why: The pursuit of technology freedom

This talk will explore the future of Linux on RISC-V, an open instruction set (ISA). I will introduce the open source FPGA ecosystem including Migen and LiteX, and explain how they make it possible to quickly implement SoC designs in an FPGA capable of running Linux on a RISC-V. I will also look at the current RISC-V SoC's that are capable of running Linux and available dev boards. 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 the RISC-V Platform Specification Task Group is trying to standardize boot and runtime requirements with the creation of the Linux-2022 specification.
