I run Slackware from They provide riscv64 prebuilts. Shall that count?


Thank you for your info :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:This list will be updated every two months.


Thank you for your valuable information. Is there anyone who is doing Zephyr kernel, especially SMP version, on VisionFive 2 board? Thanks,

The closest match of existing hardware, in terms of CPU (U74-mc), running Zephyr is the HiFive Unmatched board, that would probably be a good starting point if YOU were planning on adding support for the VF2.

There are always two options, when it comes to new boards:

  • Wait for someone else to make something happen for you, and hope that they add all the features that you need/want.
  • YOU make it happen, the exact way you need it to be.

You need to include the info whether a distro is GUI-based on server-only for now. Many of the distros in the list just give you a server functionality and have no desktop built-in at all.


Every three there is major release of Armbian :wink: which you managed to miss out:

minimal CLI
XFCE desktop


deepin system supports dde desktop environment
