  • 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.

  • ARM Cortex-A15 Compiler Optimizations

    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.

  • 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.

  • Etnaviv: An Open-Source Driver For Vivante GPUs

    Linux on ARMEtnaviv is a new open-source project for building a user-space graphics driver for controlling the Vivante GPUs found in some ARM SoCs. The ultimate goal is to create a new Mesa/Gallium3D driver for this graphics core.

  • 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.

  • Lego Mindstorms EV3 Hackable Robots Run Linux

    Linux on ARMThe LEGO Group has announced LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3, a new platform for consumer robotics designed for both younger generation and robotics enthusiasts, at CES 2013. MINDSTORMS system is powered by the new EV3 Intelligent Brick, that comes with more memory (64 MB + 16 MB internal flash memory) and a faster processor (ARM9 @ 300MHz), and runs a Linux-based firmware.

  • ARM 64-Bit Support For The X.Org Server (AArch64)

    Linux on ARMSupport for AArch64, the 64-bit ARM architecture, is being prepped for the X.Org Server. For the AArch64 Linux enablement, support was added to the Linux 3.7 kernel, has been merged for the next release of the GCC compiler, and other GNU/Linux components are beginning to see this ARMv8 support work.

  • FreeBSD/armv6: what’s new and exciting?

    Linux on ARMIt's been a while since last update on the project status so it might seem as there was no progress in this area. The reality is: there is a bunch of activities happening with various levels of success. So I decided to give kind of end-of-the-year round-up of ongoing projects, plans and obstacles ARM hackers face.

  • Unpleasant: LLVM/Clang 3.2 On The ARM Cortex-A15

    Linux on ARMSince publishing LLVM/Clang 3.2 benchmarks a few days ago that showed the Clang C/C++ compiler competing with -- and in some cases outperforming -- the GCC compiler on Intel x86_64, several Phoronix readers have been asking how things compare on the ARM side.

  • Chrome's Native Client Adds ARM Support, a Virtual File System

    Linux on ARMGoogle has updated the Native Client SDK with several additions that should be of interest particularly to developers looking to port existing C/C++ applications. The new features, part of the Pepper 25 update, make it possible to run more code as is, without alterations or additions.
