  • Linux 3.14 kernel revision beefs up ARM, VM support

    Linux on ARMThe latest Linux kernel's revision number may be 3.14, but don't expect any pi jokes in the release notes. Do, however, look past the matter-of-fact release announcement on the Linux kernel development mailing list for some intriguing improvements in ways that may have implications for cutting-edge processors and for cloud/VM environments.

  • Apple Open-Sources Their 64-bit ARM LLVM Back-End

    Linux on ARMBack in September of last year after Apple unveiled the iPhone 5S smart-phone with a 64-bit processor, they said they would ultimately open-source their 64-bit ARM compiler back-end... A half-year later, we're finally seeing this code that yields another AArch64 back-end for LLVM.

  • Porting to 64-bit ARM

    Linux on ARMWhy 64-bit? It seems that is a question with many answers! For some, it will be the need to address more than 2GB or 4GB of memory, for others the need for wider registers and greater accuracy of 64-bit data processing, for still others the attraction of a larger register set. Either way, the 64-bit train is gathering speed and if you don't get on board it may leave you behind!

  • NVIDIA Just Announced A New ARM Board I Really Love

  • Dedicated Hosting Services on ARM Development Boards (Cubieboard2, Raspberry Pi, ODROID…)

    Linux on ARMAt least two companies have recently launched hosting services using dedicated ARM servers based on low cost development boards: NanoXion with its NX-BOX service powered by PiBox (Raspberry Pi) and CubieBox (Cubieboard 2) microservers, and miniNodes with servers based on Cubieboard2 first, then ODROID development boards, and possibly AllWinner OptimusBoard once/if it becomes available.

  • Linux group could hasten 64-bit Android for ARM mobile devices

    Linux on ARMLinaro, the open-source development consortium for Linux on ARM architecture, is working on software, tools and drivers that could hasten the release of 64-bit Android. The move is significant because, apart from Apple’s iPhone 5s, no 64-bit smartphones have been announced, a situation that analysts partly attribute to the lack of 64-bit Android for ARM processors, which are the most widely used in handsets and tablets.

  • First Public Evidence Of Samsung’s 64-bit SoC Surfaces But It’s Light On Details

    Linux on ARMAs the majority of our readers should be aware of, Apple’s A7 processor is the first mobile SoC to have adopted the 64-bit architecture. While this doesn’t offer a ton of benefits at this point in time, it’s still quite an achievement, and with the passage of time, you can be certain that more smartphones will feature 64-bit processors under the hood.

  • Unregisterised GHC HEAD build for ARM64 (ARMv8/AArch64) platform

    Linux on ARMI’ve thought I’ll have some ARM/GHC fun again after a while and thought to give a try to ARM64 port. I mean AArch64 mode of ARMv8 platform as the ARM64 of course.

  • Yacy P2P Non-Tracking Search Engine and YaCyPi Linux Distribution for Raspberry Pi

    Linux on ARMWith the revelations by Edward Snowden of NSA’s large scale spying programs, people have become more and more aware that there’s very little privacy online, and in 2013 several companies have tried to solve this online privacy issue, by launching services and products such as Onion Pi and Safeplug Tor Server, or even the recently announced privacy-focused Blackphone.

  • Combining the Linux Device Tree and Kernel Image for ARM

    Linux on ARMBack in 2010, I wrote two articles about a SystemC model used to load the Linux kernel and its various artifacts into memory for ARM virtual platforms. The first was A SystemC TLM 2.0 ARM Linux Boot Loader and the second was More on the SystemC ARM Linux Boot Loader. At the time I covered the kernel, Linux kernel command line, and RAM-based file system.
