  • Linux Kernel 3.7 Has Been Officially Released

    Linux on ARMAfter eight Release Candidate versions, Linus Torvalds proudly announced a few minutes ago, December 11, the immediate availability for download of Linux kernel 3.7. Linux kernel 3.7 brings various interesting features (check out the highlights below and the quote from Linus Torvalds' announcement), among which we can mention support for 64-bit ARM, improved support for Intel and Radeon graphics cards, enhancements to the EXT4 and Btrfs filesystems, IPv6 Netfilter improvements, and much more.

  • Linux Kernel 3.7 RC1 Brings Full ARM Support, Download Now

    Linux on ARMLinus Torvalds announced yesterday, October 14th, the immediate availability for download of the first released candidate for the Linux 3.7 kernel series. Linux kernel 3.7 RC1 comes with a lot of new features, according to Linus Torvalds. Among the listed changes, we find that now the "uapi" includes file cleanups.

  • Linux Kernel 3.7 flexes its ARM muscles

    Linux on ARMTakeaway: With the Linux 3.7 kernel some major changes are in order. In particular, the support for ARM technology has arrived. Jack Wallen pontificates on what this could mean for the open source platform on multiple levels.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 64-bit ARM support merged into Linux kernel

    Linux on ARMLess than 18 hours after the release of Linux 3.6, Linus Torvalds merged the first changes for version 3.7 into the main Linux kernel development tree. These included support for 64-bit ARM architecture (1, 2, 3, 4 and others), submitted for merger by ARM employee Catalin Marinas a little earlier.

  • 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.

  • Linaro 12.09 Release with Kernel 3.6 and Android 4.1.1

    Linux on ARMLinaro release 12.09 has just been announced, and includes Linux Kernel 3.6-rc6 and Android Jelly Bean.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • AArch64/ARM64 Linux Kernel Work Still Ongoing

    Linux on ARMThe ARMv8 64-bit architecture enablement, officially known as AArch64, is still ongoing for the Linux kernel. Back in early July were the initial Linux kernel patches for AArch64. The initial code drop consisted of about 23,000 lines of code to enable this 64-bit ARMv8 support in Linux. More on the AArch64/ARMv8 Linux enablement was talked about last month at Debian's DebConf 12.

  • TI Releases Linux Kernel Support For "Keystone"

    Linux on ARMTexas Instruments has published their initial Linux kernel patches for providing support for their forthcoming Keystone platform, which is an interesting ARM-based platform dealing with many-core SoCs using Cortex-A15s.
