Allwinner Nezha RISC-V development board got Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS porting support

Canonical has just announced that they have provided porting support for Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS for Allwinner’s Nezha RISC-V board.

It is reported that Nezha is an AIoT development board product using the Allwinner D1 SoC, based on the open source RISC-V processor architecture. RISC-V has grown in popularity in recent years, but there are still some roadblocks to adoption, company executives say.

 

 

 

The good news is that with Canonical providing porting support for Ubuntu, the Allwinner Nezha platform is expected to provide more convenience for RISC-V developers and enterprises.

 

According to Canonical, the work is fueled by its longstanding collaboration with Allwinner and Alibaba, particularly the D1 SoC that integrates the latter’s “T-Head” 64-bit chip.

 

It’s important to point out that Nezha uses the Ubuntu Server image, not the desktop fork that most readers are familiar with.

 

Even so, Ubuntu Server 22.04.1 LTS has packages very similar to Desktop installations, complemented by the same five-year long-term support (until 2027).
