Ubuntu 24.04 LTS Now Optimized for Milk-V Mars RISC-V Single Board Computer (SBC)

Canonical, the company behind the renowned Ubuntu Linux distribution, disclosed today that an optimized image of Ubuntu 24.04 LTS for the Milk-V Mars RISC-V single-board computer is now accessible.

Introduced as the world’s first credit-card-size high-performance RISC-V SBC from Milk-V, the Milk-V Mars board is run by the StarFive JH7110 processor with an inbuilt 3D GPU. This makes it a perfect hardware platform for developers and enthusiasts in RISC-V.

Milk-V Mars supports eMMC modules that are plug-and-play and can accommodate up to 8GB LPDDR4 RAM, an M.2 E-Key slot for WIFI/BT modules, an HDMI 2.0 port that supports 4K resolution, a 4-channel MIPI CSI, a 2-channel MIPI CSI, a 40-pin GPIO, an RJ45 Ethernet port that supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), three USB 3.0 ports, and a USB 2.0 port.

The better news is, those who own or purchase the Milk-V Mars single-board computer can now access and install the most recent Ubuntu 24.04 LTS (Noble Numbat) operating system series. As per Canonical, Ubuntu is the optimum operating system for hardware in RISC-V.

“At Canonical, we believe that open source is the best way to accelerate innovation, which motivates us to enable a wide range of open source communities under the Ubuntu umbrella. Open source software is prized by developers and innovators, but it comes with its own set of challenges,” said Canonical.

Without further ado, you can visit the official Ubuntu website to download Ubuntu 24.04 LTS for the Milk-V Mars board, or any of the officially supported RISC-V SBC, including StarFive VisionFive 2, Microchip PolarFire SoC FPGA Icicle, Sipeed LicheeRV D1, AllWinner Nezha, and SiFive Unmatched.

If you have an NVMe drive, Canonical recommends downloading the Ubuntu 24.04 LTS Server live installer to deploy the operating system on the Milk-V Mars SBC. If that’s not the case, you can download the Ubuntu Server preinstalled image instead.
