  • 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.

  • 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.
