OpenRISC Linux

This is a port of Linux to the OpenRISC class of microprocessors; the initial
target architecture, specifically, is the 32-bit OpenRISC 1000 family (or1k).

Build instructions for OpenRISC toolchain and Linux

In order to build and run Linux for OpenRISC, you'll need at least a basic
toolchain and, perhaps, the architectural simulator. Steps to get these bits
in place are outlined here.

1) The toolchain can be obtained from openrisc.net. Instructions for building
a toolchain can be found at:


2) or1ksim (optional)

or1ksim is the architectural simulator which will allow you to actually run
your OpenRISC Linux kernel if you don't have an OpenRISC processor at hand.

git clone git://openrisc.net/jonas/or1ksim-svn

cd or1ksim
./configure --prefix=$OPENRISC_PREFIX
make install

3) Linux kernel

Build the kernel as usual

make ARCH=openrisc defconfig
make ARCH=openrisc

4) Run in architectural simulator

Grab the or1ksim platform configuration file (from the or1ksim source) and
together with your freshly built vmlinux, run your kernel with the following

sim -f arch/openrisc/or1ksim.cfg vmlinux



In the code, the following particles are used on symbols to limit the scope
to more or less specific processor implementations:

openrisc: the OpenRISC class of processors
or1k: the OpenRISC 1000 family of processors
or1200: the OpenRISC 1200 processor
