  • Debian Will Continue to Provide Support for the MIPS Architecture

    Linux on ARMThe Debian distribution provides support for numerous processor architectures and it's one of the most prolific in this area. It looks like MIPS support will continue to be offered by the Debian maintainers after the developers get their hand on some new MIPS-powered hardware.

  • Linux Kernel 3.19.1 Officially Released, Brings ARM, ARM64, and x86 Improvements

    Linux on ARMGreg Kroah-Hartman had the pleasure of announcing earlier today, March 7, the immediate availability for download of the first point release for the Linux 3.19 kernel, which is the current stable branch of the Linux kernel, the core of any GNU/Linux operating system.

  • Linux Kernel 3.2.67 LTS Improves Support for Several RISC Microprocessor Architectures

    Linux on ARMBen Hutchings, the maintainer of the Linux 3.2 kernel branch, had the pleasure of announcing the immediate availability for download and upgrade of a new maintenance release for Linux kernel 3.2, version 3.2.67, urging users to update to it as soon as possible. Linux 3.2.67 kernel is a long-term supported version mostly used on very stable environments or embedded systems.

  • CAVIUM 48-core 64bit ARMv8 and 32-core MIPS for Servers and Base Stations

    Linux on ARMCavium talks about and shows their latest enterprise, data center, wired and wireless networking OCTEON and OCTEON Fusion SoCs based on ARMv8 64bit and MIPS, making customized optimized core designs for each in use for cloud servers and base stations among other. CAVIUM claims that their 48-core ARMv8 64bit enterprise/server design, due to be released later this year, provides more performance at lower power consumption than Intel´s x86.

  • Wind River Linux adds 64-bit ARM, adopts Yocto 1.5

    Linux on ARMWind River announced Wind River Linux 6, featuring Yocto Project 1.5 Linux kernel and toolchain, and expanded multi-architecture hardware support including 64-bit ARMv8. Wind River also announced a faster new Yocto-compatible version of its carrier-grade Wind River Open Virtualization software.

  • Linux Desktop Experience with ARM and MIPS

    Linux on ARMThe Linux experience for many of our readers most likely starts with an x86 hardware platform. However, desktop solutions exist for other platforms, like ARM and MIPS. When Linus Torvalds' practice with Minix led to Linux, the main development platform was a PC with the i386 architecture. Three years later, in 1994, he was asked to help Digital (DEC, or just Digital Equipment Corporation) port Linux onto the Alpha platform.
