  • Linux 3.9 Kernel Improves ARM Hardware Support

    Linux on ARMhe Linux 3.9 kernel will be another exciting update not only for common x86 users but the ARM hardware support continues to advance too. The 3.9 ARM SoC pull was sent in on Thursday by Arnd Bergmann. Among the noteworthy updates this time around include:

  • Support For Running Windows Apps On ARM With Wine

    Linux on ARMRight before Wine on Android was shown for running Windows applications on Google's Android operating system, the state of Wine for the ARM architecture was talked about. There's a few different Wine ARM scenarios possible, including the ability to run Win32 binaries on a Linux-based ARM system.

  • Linaro and Distributions

    Linux on ARMFrom the by start of Linaro there has been much confusion about Linaro and distributions. Part of this, I'm sure is because Linaro is different from most open source entities which, by and large, are either industry consortiums or distributions or a mixture of the two.  So what is the relationship between Linaro and ARM Linux based distributions?

  • 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:

  • Your New ARM SoC Linux Support Check-List - ELCE 2012

    Linux on ARMSince Linus Torvalds raised warnings about the state of the ARM architecture support in the Linux kernel, a huge amount of effort and reorganization has happened in the way Linux supports ARM SoCs. From the addition of the device tree to the pinctrl subsystem, from the new clock framework to the new rules in code organization and design, the changes have been significant over the last one and half year in theARM Linux kernel world.

  • Piglit OpenGL Driver Testing Framework Now Works with ARM Linux & OpenGL ES

    Linux on ARMPiglit is a collection of automated tests for OpenGL implementations that aims at improving the quality of open source OpenGL drivers by providing developers with a simple means to perform regression tests.

  • Opening the Can: initial support for openSUSE on the ARM Chromebook

    Linux on ARMAccording to ZDnet, “Amazon’s top selling laptop doesn’t run Windows or Mac OS, it runs Linux”. And that top selling device is the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook. Billed as an ideal second computer just aiming to make it simple to access online services, without the hassle and risk of running another full Windows machine.

  • Oracle releases preview of Raspberry Pi-compatible Java SE8 for ARM

    Linux on ARMSummary: Oracle has launched the first developer preview of Java Standard Edition 8 for ARM, which includes tools for building JavaFX apps for ARM-based Linux systems such as the Raspberry Pi.

  • 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.

  • Initial ARMv8 Support For 32-bit GCC Port

    Linux on ARMDevelopers from ARM Holdings have published their initial ARMv8 patch for the GNU Compiler Collection for the 32-bit "AArch32" compiler port.
     

  • Linux Kernel 3.7 RC1 Brings Full ARM Support, Download Now

    Linux on ARMLinus Torvalds announced yesterday, October 14th, the immediate availability for download of the first released candidate for the Linux 3.7 kernel series. Linux kernel 3.7 RC1 comes with a lot of new features, according to Linus Torvalds. Among the listed changes, we find that now the "uapi" includes file cleanups.

  • Linux on ARM breakthrough to take away Torvalds' arse pain

    Linux on ARMA single Linux kernel build that can run on various ARM-powered kit from competing manufacturers has come closer to reality, much to Linus Torvalds' relief.
     

  • Xen ARM in Linux!

    Linux on ARMLast weekend Linus Torvalds pulled the Xen on ARM patches in his Linux tree, so as of Saturday the 7th of October, we have Xen ARM in upstream Linux! This makes Xen the first hypervisor supported by Linux on the ARM platform!

  • Linux Kernel 3.7 flexes its ARM muscles

    Linux on ARMTakeaway: With the Linux 3.7 kernel some major changes are in order. In particular, the support for ARM technology has arrived. Jack Wallen pontificates on what this could mean for the open source platform on multiple levels.

  • One Linux for all ARM systems

    Linux on ARMARM processors and Linux have been married for years. You name an ARM-based device - smartphones, Raspberry Pi, tablets - and you'll find Linux running beside it. It's not been a happy marriage though. For every ARM system on a chip (SoC) there had to be a different Linux spin. With the forthcoming Linux 3.7 kernel we're on our way to seeing all ARM processors working with a single Linux kernel.

  • With Linux kernel 3.7 one build will support many ARM SoCs

    Linux on ARMA recent code commit has revealed an interesting feature in the upcoming Linux kernel 3.7 that will allow it to support multiple ARM platforms out of the box. This brings ARM more in line with x86 builds where multiple processors are supported on a single kernel build.

  • Java One: Oracle demos Java SE embedded running on Raspberry Pi

    Linux on ARMShows how games controller and robotic arm can be hooked up to Linux based ARM board - SAN FRANCISCO: ENTERPRISE VENDOR Oracle demonstrated Java SE for embedded devices running on the Raspberry Pi bare bones computer at the Java One show on Wednesday, with the aim of encouraging developers to try it out for themselves to create reference libraries for the target school children audience.
