Root filesystem for risc-v board

Pavel Machek


So... how do you get root filesystem for RISC-V board? Ideally I'd
like to get something Debian based.

Best I could try is debootstrap for Debian testing:

sudo debootstrap --no-check-gpg --foreign --arch=riscv64 --keyring
--include=debian-ports-archive-keyring unstable /some/suitable/dir

Unfortunately, I can't get debootstrap --second-stage to work (I get
sigsegv in ldconfig, I guess testing may be too experimental?). Is it
possible to debootstrap stable or testing distributions?

I don't think CIP project provides binary images somewhere. What is
recommended way to get a root filesystem? Is there suitable
documentation I should follow?

Thanks and best regards,
