Anyone have any experience in porting Debian?

I'm sure some of you will know this but the C-SKY architecture is now in the Linux Mainline.

I'm keen on starting a Debian port, I already have a Dev board and I've built Linux using buildroot. I do have experience compiling software on Linux but I have little experience in porting to New Architectures however I'm willing to learn.

If I can find a team to work on this I can probably arrange to distribute a few C-SKY development boards to get this started.

please let me know if you have any thoughts on this.

James

The Debian wiki has a RISC-V page:

https://wiki.debian.org/RISC-V

Not sure how applicable that is for C-SKY though.

I have zero experience with porting but I'm very keen on RISC-V in general.

Unfortunately c-sky isn’t related to RISC-V although c-sky are members of the RISC-V foundation.
