first RISC-V board: StarFive VisionFive 2

arrived this week:

StarFive VisionFive 2 board

VisionFive 2 Box

Picked up the 8 Gig dual network version from AmeriDroid.

Not had time to do much; Downloaded the 202302 debian image onto SD card. One hint: the board did not come configured to boot from SD: had to move the small switches to enable:

Once had figured that out, everything came up fine. Mine had no problems booting, and displaying on my HDMI monitor. Don’t intend initially to use it that way, so just installed ssh server, and unplugged. Now on my network and running headless (the little lights are flashing by the power). Am using my official Raspberry PI USB3 power supply, it has just the 3A power required.

uname -a
Linux starfive 5.15.0-starfive #1 SMP Mon Feb 27 14:03:14 EST 2023 riscv64 GNU/Linux

more updates to come!
