  • "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.
