  • FreeBSD On ARM Is Still In Severed State

    Linux on ARMFreeBSD developers are still working on bringing up ARM hardware support for various platforms so that it's in a similar state to Linux.
     

  • One Linux for all ARM systems

    Linux on ARMARM processors and Linux have been married for years. You name an ARM-based device - smartphones, Raspberry Pi, tablets - and you'll find Linux running beside it. It's not been a happy marriage though. For every ARM system on a chip (SoC) there had to be a different Linux spin. With the forthcoming Linux 3.7 kernel we're on our way to seeing all ARM processors working with a single Linux kernel.

  • With Linux kernel 3.7 one build will support many ARM SoCs

    Linux on ARMA recent code commit has revealed an interesting feature in the upcoming Linux kernel 3.7 that will allow it to support multiple ARM platforms out of the box. This brings ARM more in line with x86 builds where multiple processors are supported on a single kernel build.

  • Java One: Oracle demos Java SE embedded running on Raspberry Pi

    Linux on ARMShows how games controller and robotic arm can be hooked up to Linux based ARM board - SAN FRANCISCO: ENTERPRISE VENDOR Oracle demonstrated Java SE for embedded devices running on the Raspberry Pi bare bones computer at the Java One show on Wednesday, with the aim of encouraging developers to try it out for themselves to create reference libraries for the target school children audience.

  • One Kernel Can Now Handle Multiple ARM Platforms

    Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.7 kernel gets even more exciting with the merging of ARM multi-platform support. This work allows for a single Linux kernel build to contain support for multiple ARM SoCs/platforms.

  • Announcing openSUSE on ARM Release Candidate 1

    Linux on ARMAfter 11 months of grueling work, openSUSE is pleased to announce the first Release Candidate for openSUSE 12.2 on the ARM architecture. After discussing ARM first at the openSUSE Conference in 2011, the openSUSE ARM team has managed to bring up openSUSE from nowhere to being a truly usable and functional distribution on the ARM version 7 architecture in time for the new openSUSE Conference in Prague next month!

  • ARM64/AArch64 Support Going Into Linux 3.7 Kernel

    Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.7 kernel will feature support for the ARM 64-bit architecture (ARM64), which is officially known as AArch64.
     

  • Xen For ARM Is Set For The Linux 3.7 Kernel

    Linux on ARMXen virtualization support for the ARM architecture is now set to be pulled for the Linux 3.7 kernel. With the Linux 3.7 kernel merge window now open following the Linux 3.6 kernel release, it looks like the ARM Xen virtualization support will finally land.

  • Arch Linux ARM - Support for ODROID-X available

    Linux on ARMWe have initial support available for the ODROID-X platform, which uses the Samsung Exynos4412 ARM Cortex-A9 Quad Core CPU. The device also sports 1GB of RAM, 6 USB ports, HDMI and LVDS displays, and a 50-pin expansion port for standard wire interfaces. Graphics are powered by a MALI 400 GPU, with drivers expected in October 2012 for accelerated graphics.

  • LPC videos on Linux & UEFI, ARM and ACPI 5.0

    Linux on ARMThe organisers of the Linux Plumbers Conference (LPC) 2012, which was held at the end of August in San Diego, have released videos, notes and presentation slidesfrom the conference presentations. The talks are primarily concerned with Linux software that deals with the interaction between hardware and the user interface.

  • Red Hat: Linux on ARM is No Joke

    Linux on ARMThere was a time when x86 was the only major chip architecture that Linux vendor Red Hat cared about. That time has now come to an end as the Linux giant is now taking a serious look at ARM.

  • Linux Kernel Whackos: Drop Everything But ARM

    Linux on ARMIt's not even Friday yet, but there's more awkward entertainment today at the expense of Linux kernel trolls. The latest in the series of weird messages hitting the Linux kernel mailing list is a proposal to drop support for all CPU architectures but ARM and a new "invisible" file-system feature.

  • Unity Debacle Sets Back Ubuntu On The ARM Desktop

    Linux on ARMWith Unity 2D being abandoned and only providing Unity + Compiz in Ubuntu 12.10 as the default desktop, the out-of-the-box experience for low-powered ARM hardware on the stock Ubuntu desktop is a mess.

  • Baking Pi - Operating Systems Development

    Linux on ARMWelcome to Baking Pi: Operating Systems Development! Course by Alex Chadwick. - This website is here to guide you through the process of developing very basic operating systems on the Raspberry Pi! This website is aimed at people aged 16 and upwards, although younger readers may still find some of it accessible, particularly with assistance. More lessons may be added to this course in time.

  • Cracking Broadcom's VideoCore With An Open Driver

    Linux on ARMNearly two months ago I wrote that a major open-source ARM announcement was coming. "This forthcoming announcement, which isn't being detailed yet but will be yet another Linux graphics exclusive for Phoronix the near future, is something entirely different from the other recent open-source ARM Linux graphics advancements" So what's the announcement?

  • Compiling the Linux kernel for BeagleBoard-XM

    Linux on ARMFirst of all, this post is not about building an Angstrom distribution (Linux OS that is known to run well on embedded devices) from scratch. This about compiling a Linux kernel source which you can boot from using your Angstrom distro. I'm assuming that you already have a working Angstrom MMC with you. I used the one that came along with the BeagleBoard XM, pre-installed with Angstrom.

  • Quad-Core ODROID-X Tested Against PlayStation 3

    Linux on ARMHere are some more benchmarks of the ODROID-X, a $129 ARMv7 development board that packs four Cortex-A9 cores along with Mali-400 graphics to provide a fairly impressive punch. There's even some comparative numbers to a Sony PlayStation 3 running Linux.

  • Linux 3.5 On The TI OMAP4 PandaBoard ES

    Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.5 kernel for Texas Instruments OMAP4 devices has finally been uploaded into the Quantal repository for Ubuntu 12.10. With the upgraded kernel release, here are some new benchmarks of the popular PandaBoard ES compared to earlier Ubuntu 12.10 development snapshots, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 11.10 from the dual-core Cortex-A9 ARMv7 development hardware.

  • Encoding on MK802 ARM SoC with MediaCoder

    Linux on ARMMK802 is a popular ARM based super micro computer which can plug directly into any HDMI output for an on the go media player, internet browser, game machine or for general use. It features 1.0GHz Cortex-A8 CPU and 500MHz GPU, 1GB DDR3 memory and 4GB flash storage. The stock Android can be replaced with Ubuntu Linux.

  • Quad-Core ODROID-X Battles NVIDIA Tegra 3

    Linux on ARMWhile not as popular as NVIDIA's Tegra 3 ARM SoC, the Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 found on cheaply priced ODROID-X can actually outperform the quad-core NVIDIA ARM processor. Here are benchmarks of the $129 USD ODROID-X benchmarked against the NVIDIA Tegra 3 reference tablet and a PandaBoard ES running the Texas Instruments OMAP4460.
