Hello Pavel,

Apologies for the slow reply, I've been away.

So... how do you get root filesystem for RISC-V board? Ideally I'd
like to get something Debian based.
Renesas' official BSP (v1.0) is Yocto/Poky based and is available on their website:

But it's in source code form, so it would need building as per the included documentation.

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?
This document describes the build process for the Yocto BSP:

We'll have to work out with CIP how we want to support CIP-Core on the RZ/Five, given the current lack of official risc-v support in Debian.
Something we can discuss in next week's extended TSC.

Kind regards, Chris
