[Article] Booting RISC-V Linux on Star64 JH7110 SBC
#1
Previously we talked about the Star64 64-bit RISC-V Single-Board Computer. (Based on StarFive JH7110 SoC). And we inspected the Linux Images for Star64. 

Today we’ll boot them on Star64! We’ll soon see…

(1) Yocto Linux boots OK on Star64 (Even KDE Plasma)
(2) Armbian Linux is not quite ready (Missing Device Tree)
(3) Apache NuttX RTOS boots a bit (Thanks to Armbian)
(4) Helped by OpenSBI and U-Boot Bootloader (We’ll explain why)

Read on for the details…

I read the comments - people clearly do not know the essence of the question about Satr64 support.  Smile
There is already everything need to very easily start and use a full-fledged system on Star64 (downloaded, recorded to SD, inserted into Star64, turned on the power and got a full-fledged working system). LAN USB WIFI sound and so on are supported. It is very easy to perform all the described tasks by standard steps of program settings, as on ordinary PCs - to make a server with a NAS and so on. Including placing (installing) the system on NVMe. Advise them to study this topic, where are the details about ArmbianTV images.
