Porting Linux to a new architecture is a challenge on its own. The process requires knowledge of different kernel subsystems at the same time as the general overview. Additionally, Linux is complete only with its applications and libraries. They add their own requirements and platform dependencies. This talk shows the main points learned porting Linux not just to a new architecture, but multicore and distributed one of the Kalray MPPA256 processor. This includes advanced debug techniques, hard points in the kernel and in the interactions between kernel and user space. It shows also the points specific to the architecture like the device drivers, board support and more. It is rich in examples showing not only what, but also why something was done.
