  • Debian Linux on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (with pen support) – video

    Linux on ARMThe Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is an Android tablet with a Samsung Exynos 4 quad-core processor, a 1280 x 800 pixel display, and a Wacom digital pen which supports pressure-sensitive input for writing or drawing on the screen.

  • 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.

  • Running Linux on the Series 3 Chromebook

    Linux on ARMLast month Google and Samsung released the first commercially available product using the ARM® Cortex™-A15 SoC design: the new Series 3 Chromebook. Not only does the Chromebook have the new Samsung Exynos 5250 providing the core compute power, but it also has the new ARM Mali™-T604 providing the power to move all those pixels around.

  • Codethink announced its first generation high-performance power-efficient ARM server, the Baserock™ Slab

    Linux on ARMThe Baserock™ Slab is a multi-processor server featuring 8 quad-core ARMv7-A CPUs running at 1.33GHz and an on-board high-speed network switch fabric with 5Gbit/s between the CPUs and 2x10Gbit/s external. Each compute node gets additional performance with its own dedicated low-latency mSATA solid state drive.

  • Bodhi's ARM Branch Moves to ARMHF

    Linux on ARMAfter doing some research and testing for the last week I have arrived at the conclusion that Bodhi's ARM branch will best serve our users by moving our core from Debian Wheezy ARMEL to utilize Debian Wheezy ARMHF. I'm not going to get into the technical difference between the two platforms here - just know that in general ARMHF is faster.

  • Kontron slaps a Tegra 3 processor onto a Mini-ITX motherboard

    Linux on ARMWe’ve seen low power ARM-based processors show up in everything from smartphones to set-top-boxes, from tablets to USB thumb drive-sized PCs. Now a company called Kontron is slapping together Mini-ITX computer motherboard featuring an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor.

  • Debian Works Towards ARMv8 AArch64 Support

    Linux on ARMDebian developers are working towards an official armhf image for the Wheezy release and they're also gearing up for official 64-bit ARMv8 / AArch64 support in the "Wheezy + 1" release.

  • 4 Fine Linux ARM Distros

    Linux on ARMThe ARM platform is exploding like a mad wet cat out of the bath. Here are four good distros cram-full of ARM fun. Linux has had ARM support since forever, but it's been bumpy. There are hundreds of vendors of ARM devices (see Tiny Pluggable Linux ARM Computers Are Red-Hot for a sampling), all shoving their own personal hacked code out the door as fast as possible. This made Linux support complicated and unwieldy, to the point that Linus Torvalds threatened to stop accepting ARM changes in the mainline Linux kernel.

  • Updated Debian, Arch Linux ARM images

    Linux on ARMLiam has just uploaded new versions of the Debian and Arch Linux ARM distributions to our mirror system. Head on over to the downloads page. The Debian image contains the following updates to the prior 13-04-2012 release:

  • Raspberry Pi review

    Linux on ARMIt's been the most highly anticipated launch in the history of development boards, but one of the most problem-ridden too. Originally unveiled early last year with a suggested launch schedule of September 2011, the Raspberry Pi single-board computer has proven a beast to get out of the door - but the first retail models are finally landing in customers' hands this week.

  • Install Debian, Arch, or BackTrack Linux on the Epic 4G Touch

    Linux on ARMAndroid phones have undergone a transformation over the last few years. Unlike other platforms that often seem reluctant to change, Android phones have only gotten bigger and faster, squeezing even more awesomeness into every cubic centimeter of each passing new generation. Along for the ride are other fun things such as allowing Android users to run software that isn't actually Android.

  • Cross-compiling FreeRDP Windows Remote Desktop Client for ARM Linux (in Debian/Ubuntu)

    Linux on ARMLast month, I wrote the instructions to Cross-compile VMWare View for ARM Linux as I intended to "run" Windows 8 in an ARM client (most likely the Raspberry Pi) via PCoIP. However, the procedure to do so seems slightly complicated and requires to purchase a specific VMWare server software (VMware vSphere 5) or download a free trial.

  • Linux Fans Gorge on Raspberry Pi

    Linux on ARMRaspberry Pi is the name given to an ultra-low-cost computer that went on sale recently for just $35. The bare-bones PC, which is built to run a few different flavors of Linux, is capable of hooking up to a mouse, keyboard, HDTV and Ethernet. Initial interest has been strong -- the first batch quickly sold out.

  • Cross-compiling VMWare View for ARM Linux (in Debian/Ubuntu)

    Linux on ARMEarlier this month, I wrote an article about PCoIP Technology which shows an Android application (VMWare View) running on an OMAP4 Tablet displaying a Windows 7 desktop. This remote desktop technology relies on a powerful server to do the processing and thin clients (in that case Tablets) to display the desktop. Since only pixels are transferred any OS (supported by the server) could be displayed in the thin client.

  • First “ready to use” DouDouLinux ARM™ images

    Linux on ARMHere it is, the promised DoudouLinux for Genesi Efika SmartBooks! It's a 4GB SD card image, ready to boot a DoudouLinux system built on top of Debian ARM™ Squeeze (armel flavour). This is a multi-language version of DoudouLinux (US English/French):

  • Cross-compiling libavg 1.7 for ARM on Debian

    Linux on ARMlibavg is a high-level development platform for media-centric applications using Python as scripting language and written in C++ and I've already written a post to cross-compile libavg 1.6 in Ubuntu (with linaro cross toolchain) and using Beagleboard qemu image.

  • Installing Emdebian ARM Cross Toolchain in Debian

    Linux on ARMI had previously installed Sourcery G++ ARM Linux toolchain in Ubuntu to build some software running in Debian, but I encountered some issues with some libraries (libavg) that use gethostbyname in static libraries without any easy way to make it dynamic.

  • Arch, Ubuntu, and Debian Linux ported to the HP TouchPad tablet

    Linux on ARMBefore hackers figured out how to install Google Android on the HP TouchPad, people were using the 9.7 inch tablet to run Ubuntu Linux… sort of. The discontinued tablet actually shipped with HP’s webOS software preloaded and early attempts to run Linux didn’t boot Linux instead of webOS. They basically let you run Ubuntu alongside Android and run Ubuntu apps without rebooting using UbuntuChroot.

  • Bodhi Linux ARM Repository Online

    Linux on ARMFive months ago I did a post announcing that we are working to bring Bodhi to ARM devices. I've been rather quiet about this part of our project since then. We are still finalizing the direction this part of our project is headed in, but for now we have landed on the choice of Debian Stable as our core. Our repository is currently online and you can easily install our Enlightenment packages on top of your Debian Stable ARM install by following these steps:

  • Ubuntu 11.10 will support ARM processors to take on Red Hat

    Linux on ARMLINUX VENDOR Canonical has said that Ubuntu 11.10 will be the first to support both x86 and ARM architectures. - Canonical's popular Ubuntu Linux distribution will get its second update of 2011 this month for both desktop and server editions. However it is the server edition that Canonical has made the biggest changes to by supporting ARM processors.
