  • ARM Ports Linux KVM To AArch64/ARM64

    Linux on ARMLast year ARM Holdings published ARM KVM virtualization support. This support was for ARMv7 hardware using the ARM Cortex-A15 since it's the first 32-bit ARM processor to support hardware virtualization. Ahead of the debut of any 64-bit ARM (AArch64) hardware, KVM has now been ported to ARM64.

  • 64-bit ARM Version Of Ubuntu/Debian Is Booting

    Linux on ARMThe 64-bit ARM (AArch64) port image of Debian/Ubuntu has surfaced. Debian-based Linux is now ready to play in a 64-bit ARM world, months ahead of any hardware appearing for the general public. Similar to x86_64, Linux is the first operating system ready for the new architecture.

  • ARM in the datacenter gets another boost

    Linux on ARMThe ongoing conversation about how ARM (and other potential low-power, massively dense packed computing systems) will be transforming the datacenter has focused primarily on the energy –efficiecy and power  and cost savings that are potentially represented by moving appropriate workloads to these new environments.

  • LLVM Now Enables 64-bit ARM Support By Default

    Linux on ARMThe AArch64 back-end to LLVM that provides support for the compiler infrastructure to target ARMv8 64-bit hardware, is now enabled within the default build.
     

  • Google Ports Chrome Native Client to ARM, Phone and Tablet Support This Year

    Linux on ARMGoogle has been working on Native Client for years and it's got years more work if it wants it to become a widely used web technology. One step in that direction is the new support for ARM processors that comes with the new Native Client SDK, version 25, i.e. targeted at Chrome 25, currently in beta.

  • Wine 1.5.22 Handles 64-bit ARM, Mac Graphics Driver

    Linux on ARMThe latest bi-weekly release of the Wine software, v1.5.22, has a couple of interesting features. The official change-log for Wine 1.5.22 as released today cites the following highlights:

  • ARM 64-Bit Support For The X.Org Server (AArch64)

    Linux on ARMSupport for AArch64, the 64-bit ARM architecture, is being prepped for the X.Org Server. For the AArch64 Linux enablement, support was added to the Linux 3.7 kernel, has been merged for the next release of the GCC compiler, and other GNU/Linux components are beginning to see this ARMv8 support work.

  • Unpleasant: LLVM/Clang 3.2 On The ARM Cortex-A15

    Linux on ARMSince publishing LLVM/Clang 3.2 benchmarks a few days ago that showed the Clang C/C++ compiler competing with -- and in some cases outperforming -- the GCC compiler on Intel x86_64, several Phoronix readers have been asking how things compare on the ARM side.

  • The Future of Linux on ARM Shines in the 3.7 Kernel

    Linux on ARMThe 3.7 Linux Kernel which was released earlier this week, includes many innovative new ARM focused features such as multi-platform, ARMv8(64-bit) and Xen in ARM support.
     

  • 64-bit ARM/AArch64 Continues To Bake In Linux 3.8

    Linux on ARMARM Holdings has more improvements for their ARMv8 AArch64 architecture with the Linux 3.8 kernel that just officially entered the first stages of development.
     

  • Linux Kernel 3.7 Has Been Officially Released

    Linux on ARMAfter eight Release Candidate versions, Linus Torvalds proudly announced a few minutes ago, December 11, the immediate availability for download of Linux kernel 3.7. Linux kernel 3.7 brings various interesting features (check out the highlights below and the quote from Linus Torvalds' announcement), among which we can mention support for 64-bit ARM, improved support for Intel and Radeon graphics cards, enhancements to the EXT4 and Btrfs filesystems, IPv6 Netfilter improvements, and much more.

  • Fedora Begins Bootstrapping ARMv8

    Linux on ARMRed Hat has announced that they've initiated a new project to bootstrap Fedora on the ARMv8 64-bit low-power architecture.
     

  • The State Of 64-Bit ARM (AArch64) On LLVM/Clang

    Linux on ARMARM's AArch64 back-end for LLVM to handle the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture is working, but there's still more work ahead of the hardware's general availability in about one year's time.
     

  • Getting Started with 64-bit ARM Development: Hello World and Linux on ARMv8 Fast Models

    Linux on ARMAt the end of last year, ARM announced ARMv8, the first ARM 64-bit ARM archtecture, and last week at ARM Techcon 2012, ARM announced the first ARMv8 cores: Cortex A53 and A57. But since there’s no silicon at the moment, what if you wanted to develop code running on ARMv8 before the hardware is available?

  • ARM, Red Hat and AppliedMicro Aim to Develop Disruptive 64-bit Server Platform

    Linux on ARMCAMBRIDGE, England & RALEIGH, N.C. & SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 25, 2012-- ARM, Red Hat, Inc.

  • AMD Announces 64-bit ARM Server Partnership; Proclaims "Seminal Moment" in Computing

    Linux on ARMAMD CEO Rory Read has announced that the company intends to develop dense computing platforms based on the 64-bit ARM architecture today. This is the second major collaboration between AMD and ARM; Sunnyvale announced earlier this year that it would integrate an ARM core to provide additional hardware-level security on future APUs.

  • Red Hat developers porting OpenJDK to ARM64

    Linux on ARMRed Hat developers are porting OpenJDK to ARMv8, the 64-bit ARM architecture (also known as A64). According to a blog postby Andrew Haley of Red Hat, the development is taking place because "the current OpenJDK ARM situation is rather unsatisfactory, and we want to do better with A64".

  • AArch64 Called For Merging To GCC Trunk
