  • Fedora 21 and ARM device support

    Linux on ARMAs we slowly meander our way towards the pointy end of the Fedora 21 release, with Alpha speeding up in the rear view mirror, the Fedora ARM team are starting to discuss the best way to deal with the blossoming amount of ARMv7 devices that can and do run out of the box on Fedora.

  • Fedora 21 and ARM aarch64 status for alpha

    Linux on ARMWith the Fedora 21 Alpha freeze looming in the rear view mirror, although the object wasn’t as close as it would appear, I thought it was high time that I gave a brief overview of the state of ARM aarch64 in Fedora. Some might assume the silence means not a lot has been happening but this is extremely far from the truth!

  • Fedora 21 To Evaluate Remote Journal Logging, 64-bit ARM Emulation

    Linux on ARMYesterday on Phoronix we covered 12 new feature proposals for Fedora 21 and following that story yesterday were a handful of new feature proposals for this next major Fedora release. On top of the features already approved, the features talked about yesterday and last week's approved features, a few more proposals were sent in yesterday for the approval by the Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee (FESCo) this week. These very latest proposals include:

  • Raspberry Pi: Hands On with Arch Linux and Pidora

    Linux on ARMIn the first post about my new Raspberry Pi, I explored about NOOBS (the New Out Of Box Software package) and Raspbian, the Debian GNU/Linux spin customised for the Pi. This time I want to take a look at the other two general-purpose Linux distributions which have been customised and packaged for the Pi, Arch Linux ARM and Pidora.

  • Latest ARM Server solutions booths tour

    Linux on ARMShowing off the latest Applied Micro 64bit X-Gene ARM Server Development Board https://myxgene.apm.com/ (which Rob Savoye of Linaro eagerly wants to start playing with), a Dell's 64bit ARM Server solution running Fedora 19 advancing quite a bit with advancing usability, working on a proof of concept for early 2014 for Dell's key cloud server customers before going into mass production (Dell already did some 32bit ARM Server tests in Europe with some customers), some things like Oracle JDK still has to fully come over (needs some tuning) to the platform.

  • Focus on Fedora 20 Features: ARM

    Linux on ARMIt's been a long time coming, but the Fedora 20 "Heisenbug" release brings ARM to equal status in Fedora with x86 and x86_64 releases. The Fedora 20 release, out just more than a month after the 10th anniversary of the first Fedora release, now boasts ARM as a primary architecture.

  • Fedora 20 “Heisenbug” Release Makes ARM a Primary Architecture

    Linux on ARMFedora has been supporting ARM architecture for a while now, but it was only as a secondary architecture without official support. With the recent Fedora 20 release, nicknamed “Heisenbug”, the ARM architecture, more exactly ARMv7 hard float and greater, is promoted to a primary architecture meaning ARMv7 will have the same status as x86 and x86_64 architectures with packages officially build and supported by the Fedora community.

  • Benchmarking the ODroid XU: A Fast-Clocked Quad A15 ARM Machine

    Linux on ARMThe ODroid-XU contains 8 CPU cores in a big.LITTLE configuration where four of the cores are active at any time. The Single Board Computer comes with 2Gb of RAM, USB 3, a microHDMI connector able to output 1080p, 10/100 network connectivity, a microSD slot, and the ability to connect up to 64Gb of eMMC flash memory to the system.

  • Fedora 20 ARMs For the Future

    Linux on ARMA week after celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Fedora Project released the Fedora 20 ("Heisenbug") beta on Nov. 12. Thanks to a few stubborn Heisenbugs, the release was several weeks late, but that is but a blip compared to some of Fedora's more historic delays.

  • Red Hat Fedora 20 Linux: New Networking, ARM Features

    Linux on ARMThe latest edition of Fedora Linux, the open source operating system that helps form the basis for Red Hat's (RHT) enterprise server platform, is set to debut soon -- though a couple weeks later than initially planned, as bugs have held up the release. Still, it could bring some of this autumn's biggest changes in desktop Linux when it appears in December.

  • Cubieboard: ARM A8 CPU with SATA for Under $50

    Linux on ARMThe Cubieboard brings SATA connectivity to a very low price point ARM Single Board Computer (SBC). The board has an ARM A8, 1Gb of RAM, 4Gb of Flash storage, HDMI output, and a whole bunch of IO pins. A recent update, the Cubieboard2 is now out, which replaces the Allwinner A10 CPU from the original Cubieboard (single A8 core) with a dual core Allwinner A20 (two A7 ARM cores).

  • Fedora 19 ARM Remix R1 Release With Support for AllWinner A10, A10s, A13 and A20 SoCs

The 28nm quad-core processor outperforms the chips found in the Samsung Galaxy S III and Google Nexus 7, for instance. And it’s a relatively inexpensive chip, which explains why it’s proven popular with Chinese tablet and TV box makers.
