  • How To compile a custom Linux kernel for your ARM device

    Linux on ARMThis tutorial covers some aspects about compiling your own Linux kernel for your ARM device. Most Linux distributions for the PC/x86 platform maintain a Linux kernel which supports a broad range of hardware devices, so it has become very unlikely to compile your own kernel from source. For the ARM platform the Linux kernel is provided by the board or system on chip (SoC) manufacturer. In some cases these kernels include a minimal set of features and device drivers only.

  • Running desktop Linux on a tablet: A lid for every pot

  • Raspberry Pi Bare Metal Programming with Rust

    Linux on ARMAfter reading the excelent http://intermezzos.github.io/, I felt excited again to work on my small kernel, but I was decided to focus on the ARM arch, since it's been awhile since I bought my Raspberry Pi B+, but never spent some time playing with it. So I started to read more about it on osdev wiki and how to get started with bare metal raspberry development.
