  • Fedora 18 Fails At ARM Wrestling Arch, Ubuntu, Linaro

    Linux on ARMFedora 18 was officially released this week for x86/x86_64, but the ARM version of Fedora 18 "Spherical Cow" is still under development. Fedora 18 for ARM went into beta last week and since then benchmarks were carried out comparing Spherical Cow on ARM to other popular ARM Linux distributions.

  • Linaro 12.12 Enhances ARM Linux Performance

    Linux on ARMFor kicking off a new week of Linux benchmarking at Phoronix is a round of ARMv7 performance benchmarks using Linaro 12.12. The Linaro 12.12 release from December was compared to Ubuntu 12.10, Linaro 12.10, Fedora 17, and Arch Linux on the PandaBoard ES with its Texas Instruments OMAP4460 Cortex-A9 SoC.

  • ArchLinux on the Transformer TF300T

    Linux on ARMRunning Linux on Android is an old favorite. With newer and older projects ranging from full installations to the less involved chroot method, users on a large range of devices can run Linux. The only limits are what distros of Linux you can load. Mostly, it is Ubuntu or other Debian-based distros. Now, ASUS Transformer TF300T owners can install Arch.

  • Four-Way ARM Linux Distribution Comparison

    Linux on ARMThe latest ARM Linux benchmarks to share at Phoronix is a comparison of Ubuntu 12.10, Linaro 12.10, Fedora 17, and Arch Linux when running from the dual-core Cortex-A9 OMAP4460-based PandaBoard ES development board.

  • Arch Linux ARM - New armv6h repo and RPi image

    Linux on ARMToday we are opening the new armv6 hard-float repositories to the public, with all packages built to support the VFP floating-point unit available in the Raspberry Pi and Via APC-IO. Because there is no upgrade path between the armv5 soft-float repository and the new armv6h repository, we have also released a new installation image for the Raspberry Pi.

  • Arch Linux ARM - Support for ODROID-X available

    Linux on ARMWe have initial support available for the ODROID-X platform, which uses the Samsung Exynos4412 ARM Cortex-A9 Quad Core CPU. The device also sports 1GB of RAM, 6 USB ports, HDMI and LVDS displays, and a 50-pin expansion port for standard wire interfaces. Graphics are powered by a MALI 400 GPU, with drivers expected in October 2012 for accelerated graphics.

  • Arch Linux ARM - Support for Nitrogen6X available

    Linux on ARMWe've added support for the Nitrogen6X board from Boundary Devices, which features a 1GHz quad-core i.MX6 SoC. This board has a comparative wealth of connectivity to the other ARMv7 boards supported by Arch Linux ARM. Multiple display outputs, PCIe, SPI/I2C/GPIO, CAN, gigabit ethernet, and SATA are just some of the features available.

  • Arch Linux ARM - Support for OLinuXino available

    Linux on ARMWe've added new installation instructions, a root filesystem, and packages to bring support to Olimex's OLinuXino board. This device is based on the Freescale i.MX233 SoC at 454MHz with 64MB RAM, 10/100mbit ethernet, audio in/out, and NTSC or PAL composite video out. It also provides a wealth of connectivity easily accessible over standard connectors which should inspire those looking for a device to run home automation or robotics to name a couple applications.

  • 4 Fine Linux ARM Distros

    Linux on ARMThe ARM platform is exploding like a mad wet cat out of the bath. Here are four good distros cram-full of ARM fun. Linux has had ARM support since forever, but it's been bumpy. There are hundreds of vendors of ARM devices (see Tiny Pluggable Linux ARM Computers Are Red-Hot for a sampling), all shoving their own personal hacked code out the door as fast as possible. This made Linux support complicated and unwieldy, to the point that Linus Torvalds threatened to stop accepting ARM changes in the mainline Linux kernel.

  • Arch Linux running in a WM8650 ARM netbook

    Linux on ARMMy port of the Linux kernel, running Arch Linux ARM (alarm) on a WM8650 ARM based netbook. Most of the changes made to the kernel are based on the work of John (Pond Weed) to port Arch Linux to WM8650 tablets: http://pond-weed.com/wmt8650/index.html

  • Arch Linux ARM - Support for CuBox available

    Linux on ARMWe've added installation instructions, a new root filesystem tarball, and custom packages to support the Marvell Armada 510 powered CuBox. The device represents a multimedia powerhouse in a package smaller than your average wall wart, providing 1080p HDMI with CEC support, SPDIF optical audio output, gigabit ethernet, an IRDA sensor for remote controls, and USB and eSATA connectivity to access your media libraries.

  • Support for TonidoPlug 2 Available - Arch Linux ARM

    Linux on ARMWe're happy to announce that we have full support for the TonidoPlug 2 now available, with installation instructions on our main site. Support for this platform comes in our latest Kirkwood kernel, 3.1.10-9, which is in the updated armv5te root filesystem tarball and available for download from the repositories. We've also added support in the kernel for the Marvell SD8786 wireless 802.11b/g/n chip integrated into the device, allowing you to fully utilize the hardware.

  • Updated Debian, Arch Linux ARM images

    Linux on ARMLiam has just uploaded new versions of the Debian and Arch Linux ARM distributions to our mirror system. Head on over to the downloads page. The Debian image contains the following updates to the prior 13-04-2012 release:

  • Arch Linux On HP TouchPad - Installation + Demonstration

    Linux on ARMArch Linux ARM is a distribution of Linux for ARM computers. We are aimed at ARMv5 platforms like plug computers, OXNAS-based ARMv6 PogoPlugs, Cortex-A8 platforms such as the BeagleBoard, and Cortex-A9 and Tegra platforms like the PandaBoard and TrimSlice. However, it can run on any device that supports ARMv5te or ARMv7 instruction sets. Our collaboration with Arch Linux brings users the best platform, newest packages, and installation support.

  • Install Debian, Arch, or BackTrack Linux on the Epic 4G Touch

    Linux on ARMAndroid phones have undergone a transformation over the last few years. Unlike other platforms that often seem reluctant to change, Android phones have only gotten bigger and faster, squeezing even more awesomeness into every cubic centimeter of each passing new generation. Along for the ride are other fun things such as allowing Android users to run software that isn't actually Android.

  • Triple boot Android, webOS, and Arch Linux on the HP TouchPad

    Linux on ARMThe HP TouchPad is capable of running a number of different operating systems. It ships with HP webOS software, but we’ve also seen Google Android and a number of Linux-based operating systems ported to run on the 9.7 inch tablet.

  • Linux operating system for Raspberry Pi ready for download

    Linux on ARMThe Linux operating system for the Raspberry Pi bare-bones computer is ready to download. The Arch Linux ARM download is based on Arch Linux, which the Raspberry Pi Foundation says "provides a lightweight base structure that allows you to shape the system to your needs".
