Supporting multiple architectures: Going from x86-only to aarch64, armv7hnl, x86 and RISC-V
OpenMandriva is a desktop centric Linux distribution that has been around on x86 for a long time - the upcoming 4.0 release will also be available on aarch64 and armv7hnl, and a RISC-V port is in the works.
This talk covers what we did to make this possible, what we learned from the experience, and how you can take your favorite projects to multiple architectures.
