The presentation on Base porting of linux kernel on RISC V architecture discuss on, minimal kernel support, Initial address & Macros used in Linux kernel to interact with hardware includes, ZTEXT_ADDRESS, ZRAM_ADDRESS, ZBASE_ADDRESS & minimal controllers initialization from hardware to bringup RISC V board.

Usage of this presentation, RISC V boards porting with linux kernel provides basic idea and huge advantage in debugging the early issues of board bringup.

Purpose of this presentation is, excepting huge family of RISC V boards from different vendors in near future and this presentation will provide basic setup required to run Linux kernel on RISC V board.
