  • "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.

  • openSUSE ARM Hackathon: 8 – 12 April, 2013

    Linux on ARMThe openSUSE ARM community, through Andrew Wafaa, is proud to announce that the openSUSE ARM Hackathon event takes place these days, between 8 and 12 April 2013, at the SUSE offices in Nuremberg, as well as online for everyone else who cannot attend in person.

  • Is Assembly Still Relevant To Most Linux Software?

    Linux on ARMSteve McIntyre and the Linaro Enterprise Group recently analyzed Ubuntu and Fedora software packages to see what software was still relying upon hand-written Assembly code. This was done to see how much real Assembly is being used, to see what the code was used for, and whether it was worth porting to 64-bit ARM / AArch64 / ARMv8.

  • Linux hwmon, power management and ARM DS-5 Streamline

    Linux on ARMThe hwmon is a generic Linux kernel subsystem, providing access to hardware monitoring components like temperature or voltage/current sensors. Traditionally interfaced via external buses like I2C, many new SOCs have internal sensors ensuring better accuracy of the result. Version 3.8 of the kernel comes with over 100 drivers for different components. One of the newly added ones is a driver for hardware monitoring subsystem of ARM Versatile Express platforms.

  • AMD developing Linux on ARM at Linaro Connect 2013

    Linux on ARMDr. Leendert van Doorn, Corporate Fellow at AMD, talks about what AMD does with Linaro to optimize Linux on ARM. He talks about the expectations that AMD has for results to come from Linaro in terms of achieving a better and more fully featured Linux world on ARM, especially for the ARM Cortex-A57 ARMv8 processor that AMD has announced for the server market.

  • Virtual prototyping methodology to boot Linux on the ARM Cortex A15

    Linux on ARMSoC development teams worldwide have begun a steady move to a virtual prototype methodology for better accuracy and to accelerate the design process of all kinds of applications. For those of you who aren't familiar with using a virtual prototype, let's start with a definition, then take a look at how an engineer recently used virtual prototyping to boot Linux on the ARM® Cortex™-A15.

  • Wookey of Linaro working on Debian for ARMv8 64bit

    Linux on ARMWookey talks about his work at Linaro on booting Debian on the ARMv8 64bit platform, and he talks about his work on ARM Powered devices over the last 20 years and on ARM Linux devices since 1999.

  • GCC Link-Time Optimizations On The ARM Cortex-A9

    Linux on ARMThe ARM Linux benchmarks continue. This time around we're looking at how the GCC LTO (Link-Time Optimization) performance fairs when running from a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 Cortex-A9 tablet.

    Linux on ARMThe latest in our series of ARM Linux benchmarking is looking at the impact of GCC compiler optimizations on the ARM Cortex A15-based Samsung Exynos 5 Dual.
     

  • Linaro to Accelerate Linux Development for ARM Servers

    Linux on ARMLinaro, the not-for-profit engineering organization developing open source software for the ARM architecture, today announced the formation of the Linaro Networking Group (LNG) with twelve founding member companies including AppliedMicro, ARM, Enea, Freescale, LSI, MontaVista, Nokia Siemens Networks and Texas Instruments (TI) at the Embedded Linux Conference (ELC).

  • A Tegra 4 Chromebook Is in the Works, Could Be a Nexus Chromebook

    Linux on ARMWith all the, real, new Chromebooks coming out, there's also a surge in rumored ones. The Chromebook Pixel is most definitely a fake, though Google could be working on a more high-end device. However, it seems that there's also a Tegra 4-powered Chromebook in the works.

  • LLVM Now Enables 64-bit ARM Support By Default

    Linux on ARMThe AArch64 back-end to LLVM that provides support for the compiler infrastructure to target ARMv8 64-bit hardware, is now enabled within the default build.
     

  • New ARM X.Org Driver Promises Better Performance

    Linux on ARMWhile xf86-video-sunxifb sounds like an old X.Org driver from the Sun Microsystems days for some obscure SPARC system, this driver is a fork of the xf86-video-mali DDX driver. What makes this ARM X.Org graphics driver interesting is that it promises better performance on the Allwinner A10/A13 SoC compared to the ARM vendor's official driver.

  • 64-bit ARM (AArch64) Support Merged Into LLVM

    Linux on ARMGCC has had support for 64-bit ARM, a.k.a. AArch64, going back to last summer for using the open-source compiler with next-generation ARMv8 hardware. Being merged today is finally support for the LLVM compiler infrastructure with an experimental 64-bit ARM/AArch64 back-end target.
