Linux ARM compatibility

  • Universal ARM/x86 COM standard gets a boost

    Linux on ARMElectronics distributor Avnet has added Taiwan-based TechNexion’s computer-on-modules to its board-level embedded products portfolio. The deal raises the profile of TechNexion’s open EDM (Embedded Design Modules) standard that defines three COM sizes usable with both ARM and x86 CPUs, and which incidentally forms the computing core of the open hardware Wandboard SBC.

  • PyPy 2.1 Ships With Python ARM JIT Support

    Linux on ARMPyPy, a fast yet compliant implementation of Python, has ARM Just-In-Time compiler support with today's version 2.1 release.

  • Xen 4.3 releases today with ARM server support

    Linux on ARMThe Xen Project makes its first release as a Linux Foundation collaborative project today. Xen 4.3 includes a technology preview of support for ARM server hardware, improvements in the open source hypervisor's performance and security and updates to its collection of tools, including another technology preview of integration with the software driven network switching tool Open vSwitch.

  • Allwinner SoC Still Unlikely For Upstream Linux Kernel

    Linux on ARMWhile Allwinner ARM SoCs are found within massive amounts of the low-cost Android tablets manufactured in China, and there is some open-source Allwinner Linux kernel support, it's still unlikely that the patches will land upstream anytime soon.

  • ARM Support Will Change A Lot With Linux 3.10

    Linux on ARMIn addition to improved 64-bit ARM support with the Linux 3.10 kernel, ARM architecture support in general will improve a lot with this in-development kernel release.

  • ARM64 Support Will Improve In Linux 3.10 (AArch64)

    Linux on ARMSupport for the emerging 64-bit ARM Architecture, a.k.a. ARM64 or AArch64, will see better support with the Linux 3.10 kernel.

  • New Linux Kernel 3.9 Adds New Features Including KVM on ARM and SSD Caching Support

    Linux on ARMLinus Torvalds recently released a new version of the Linux kernel -- version 3.9 -- that advances the core of the GNU/Linux operating system with a number of new features. Among other tweaks, the new kernel rolls in new drivers, improves virtualization support, adds new hardware sleep modes, and tweaks file system and storage support.

  • GDB supports AArch64 Linux

    Linux on ARMThe developers of the GNU Project Debugger (GDB) have released version 7.6 of their tool. Among GDB's new features are native as well as target configurations for ARM's new AArch 64 architecture and the addition numerous new commands and options.

  • Linux 3.10 May Have New Multi-Platform Support

    Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.7 kernel brought ARM multi-platform support and now with the Linux 3.10 kernel it may be extended to support the Samsung Exynos SoC family.
     

  • Linux kernel: Licence problems for old ARM FPU code

    Linux on ARMThe arch/arm/nwfpe/ directory of the ARM code in the Linux kernel includes code which has a licence that contains an indemnity clause. Russell King has pointed out that the Free Software Foundation (FSF) feels that such clauses are not compatible with section 6 of the GPLv2, which is used for the Linux kernel.

  • "Very Disruptive" Change Hurts ARM Linux Support

    Linux on ARMThe Linux kernel is having to remove support for NWFPE and VFP emulation code due to a licensing conflict. Removing NWFPE and VFP from the kernel will effectively render older ARM hardware on Linux useless until a solution is determined.

  • Genode OS 13.02 Plays With IOMMUs, Cortex-A15s

    Linux on ARMThe Genode OS operating system framework now supports direct memory access via IOMMUs and it also has initial support for ARM Cortex-A15 SoCs. This work can be found in the brand new Genode OS 13.02 release.

  • 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.
