Linux Architecture Reference Specification for OpenPOWER
This repository holds the source for the Linux on Power Architecture Reference documents. There are multiple component documents as follows:
The Platform (../Platform/) document describes the basic requirements to run Linux on the hardware platform.
The Device Tree (../DeviceTree/) document describes the structure and bindings associated with the device tree definitions for OpenPOWER systems.
The Error Handing (../ErrorHandling/) document describes the error reporting and recommended error procedures for the system.
The run-time services or RTAS (../RTAS/) document describes the firmware interfaces available to Linux running on the system and in a VM.
The Virtualization (../Virtualization/) document describes the environment by which virtualized OS images are run on the system.
The basis for this document was the Linux on Power Architecture Platform Reference (LoPAR) Version 1.1, March 2016. It was derived from an IBM document known as the Power Architecture Platform Reference (PAPR) Versions 2.7. While much of this documentation may apply to the IBM PowerVM (LPAR) environment, it will serve as a good base for the OpenPOWER documentation effort as well as support the more broad IBM Linux on Power community as well.
To build this project, one must ensure that the Docs-Master project has also been cloned at the same directory level as the Docs-Template project. This can be accomplished with the following steps:
- Clone the master documentation project (Docs-Master) using the following command:
$ git clone https://github.com/OpenPOWERFoundation/Docs-Master.git
- Clone this project (Docs-Template) using the following command:
$ git clone https://github.com/OpenPOWERFoundation/Linux-Architecture-Reference.git
- Build the project with these commands:
$ cd Linux-Architecture-Reference $ mvn clean generate-sources
The online version of the document can be found in the OpenPOWER Foundation Document library at TBD
