Subject: Re: Linux distribution for using RISC-V musl?

Thanks a lot, Khem,

However, I feel like Yocto is beyond reach of my current skills.
Someday I'll dig into low-level details of distributions, and I feel
really tempted to build a Linux from scratch (a la "Aboriginal Linux" ), but for the moment my skill is more
into user-land development (with some internal compiler skills) than
into distribution engineering. So I feel more prone to just use
available images that I can just feed into QEMU (or other emulators).

Kind regards and thanks a lot,
