  • Lilbits (7-23-2013): Supercomputers on the cheap

    Linux on ARMWant to build a so-called “supercomputer,” but don’t want to spend a ridiculous amount of money? No problem. Now there’s an option that costs just $99. Sort of.

  • Utilite ARM-based Linux computer coming in August for $99 and up

    Linux on ARMCompulab plans to launch a mini-computer with an ARM Cortex-A9 processor and support for both Ubuntu Linux and Google Android. It’s called the Utilite, and the computer’s expected to go on sale in August for $99 and up.

  • Ubuntu 12.04 Now Boots on Rockchip RK3188 mini PCs (T428, MK908, Rikomagic MK802 IV…)

    Linux on ARMAfter the release of the RK3188 Linux kernel source code last week, Ian Morrison (Linuxium) has managed to boot Ubuntu 12.04 with XFCE desktop on Tronsmart T428. However, as Tronsmart refused to release their source code, further Linux development is likely to happen on Rikomagic MK802 IV, because Rikomagic released the code for their device, so development work will be easier.

  • Linux source code for Rockchip RK3188 devices now available

    Linux on ARMRockchip’s RK3188 processor is one of the fastest ARM Cortex-A9 chips around. 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.

  • Multiple Linux Kernel Vulnerabilities Repaired in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS OMAP4

  • ODROID-U2 Part 2: Benchmarking the ARM Beast

    Linux on ARMLast week's article discussed some of the broad differences between the ODroid-U2 machine and other ARM offerings. While ARM CPUs offer wonderful computing power per watt, in this article we'll dig into just how fast the ODroid-U2 can perform various tasks. I'll throw in some benchmarks from large desktop machines so you can get an idea of whether the ODroid-U2 might be fast enough to perform your given workload.

  • Is Assembly Still Relevant To Most Linux Software?

    Linux on ARMSteve McIntyre and the Linaro Enterprise Group recently analyzed Ubuntu and Fedora software packages to see what software was still relying upon hand-written Assembly code. This was done to see how much real Assembly is being used, to see what the code was used for, and whether it was worth porting to 64-bit ARM / AArch64 / ARMv8.

  • Mini PCs (MK802+, UG802, GK802 & iStick A200) Linux Performance Comparison

    Linux on ARMIan MORRISON (linuxium) has tested Linux with several mini PCs powered by different processors. The main point of his tests was to evaluate the performance difference between running Ubuntu 12.04 natively, or in a chroot in Android using tools such as Complete Linux Installer. I previously tried Linux on Android in ODROID-X, and found the applications start time when running from an low-end SD card pretty dismal, and the graphics performance poor.

  • Ubuntu 11.10 Image for Hi802 / GK802 is Now Available for Download

    Linux on ARMAbout 2 weeks ago, Jasbir released an Ubuntu 11.10 image and installation instructions for GK802 and Hi802mini PCs based on Freescale i.MX6. I could only find time to give it try yesterday and today. I'll provide the steps I followed to install the image, and my quick first impressions of the stability and performance of this image.

  • Running Modern Linux On The CompuLab Trim-Slice

    Linux on ARMAt the beginning of last year I tested the CompuLab Trim-Slice, which was a great ARM-based Linux desktop for the time. While the hardware now shows its signs of aging in the fast-paced ARM world, modern Linux distributions can still be loaded up on the platform.

  • FXI Technologies Cotton Candy HDMI Stick To Fully Support Both Android and Ubuntu

    Linux on ARMFXI Technologies was the first company to ever show an HDMI TV dongle when they unveiled the Cotton Candy in November 2011. Since then, many Chinese companies started to provide similar products at lower cost, and the company further improved the Cotton Candy, which is still powered by Exynos 4210 (dual core Cortex A9), by making it even smaller, and getting rid of the internal flash in the process.

  • GCC Link-Time Optimizations On The ARM Cortex-A9
