  • Running Ubuntu in Android with ODROID-X Development Board

    linux on ARMI’ve had several people asking me about running Linux on Android in the last few months, but I did not look into it into details, because I thought we would just be able to run server apps. That is until Rohith left a comment on CNX Software Facebook timeline, that it’s possible to run Linux in Android, and access the user interface via VNC (sort of simple, but I did not think of it).

  • Linux 3.7 arrives, ARM developers rejoice

    Linux on ARMOnly months after the arrival of Linux 3.6, Linus Torvalds has released the next major Linux kernel update: 3.7.

  • Now you can install Ubuntu on the UG802, MK802 III, or other RK3066 mini PCs

    Linux on ARMDeveloper AndrewDB has been working to get Ubuntu Linux up and running on inexpensive mini computers with Rockchip RK3066 processors for the last few weeks. Now he's released pre-alpha builds of Ubuntu 12.10 which you can install on the UG802, MK802 III, or MK808 mini computers.

  • LLVM/Clang vs. GCC On The ARM Cortex-A15 Preview

    Linux on ARMThe latest ARM Cortex-A15 benchmarks on Phoronix is an extension of the earlier compiler testing from this modern ARM CPU found on the Samsung Exynos 5 Dual within the Samsung Chromebook. In this round of performance testing, the LLVM/Clang compiler performance is compared to recent releases of the GNU Compiler Collection on this latest-generation ARM hardware.

  • The Linaro 12.11 release is now available!

    Linux on ARMThe Linaro 12.11 release cycle highlights the hard work of all the Linaro Teams – Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams – who have provide all the updates and new features that are integrated on top of our platforms during this development cycle. The 12.11 release is another example of how Linaro works together with its members, partners and community to continue to build the future of Linux on ARM.

  • LF: There's Less Concern About ARM UEFI SecureBoot

    Android-x86James Bottomley wrote a new blog post this morning about why the Linux Foundation really isn't concerned about UEFI SecureBoot on ARM hardware (smart-phones, tablets, etc) compared to the work they are doing on x86 PCs with UEFI SecureBoot support for Linux.

  • Samsung Arndale Board Exynos 5 Dual Benchmarks

    Linux on ARMThe Arndale Board is a dual-core ARMv7 development board built around the Exynos 5 Dual SoC, which features the new ARM Cortex-A15. As shown in yesterday's Samsung Chromebook benchmarks on Linux, the Exynos 5 Dual packs very good performance for being a low-power ARM chip.

  • The State Of 64-Bit ARM (AArch64) On LLVM/Clang

    Linux on ARMARM's AArch64 back-end for LLVM to handle the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture is working, but there's still more work ahead of the hardware's general availability in about one year's time.
     

  • ARM-based linux tablets and SAP

    Linux on ARMHow to work with SAP on cheap 7’’ $100 Chinese Android tablet? With the ability to boot linux from SD card without any change of existing firmware settings? In this case, you are not limited to simple mobile applications but the tablet becomes an almost full replacement of the x86 notebook including support for applications such as SAPGUI for Java.

  • Developers porting Ubuntu Linux to devices with Rockchip RK3066 processors

    Linux on ARMRockchip's RK3066 chip is a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with clock speeds up to 1.6 GHz. The processor is popular with Chinese tablet makers, and a growing number of USB thumb drive-sized mini computers and TV dongles (such as the UG802 and MK802 III) use the RK3066 processor.

  • Getting Started with 64-bit ARM Development: Hello World and Linux on ARMv8 Fast Models

    Linux on ARMAt the end of last year, ARM announced ARMv8, the first ARM 64-bit ARM archtecture, and last week at ARM Techcon 2012, ARM announced the first ARMv8 cores: Cortex A53 and A57. But since there’s no silicon at the moment, what if you wanted to develop code running on ARMv8 before the hardware is available?
