• Linux on ARMIf you were hoping you would be able to run your favorite Linux distribution on Microsoft's new Surface Tablet, it doesn't look like it will be an easy task to accomplish. After going through the state of Linux distributions handling SecureBoot, UEFI-guru Matthew Garrett confirmed via his blog that Linux on the Microsoft Surface is likely a lemon.

  • Linux on ARMBodhi Linux is a lightweight and 'eye candy' Linux distro that features the Enlightenment desktop and applications. Jeff Hoogland, one of the key developers of this project has recently released images that you can use to install Bodhi Linux in your ARM based Chromebook. Note Bodhi Linux has a ARM CPU port, this post is aimed at installing Bodhi Linux specially in Chromebooks.

  • Android-x86James Bottomley wrote a new blog post this morning about why the Linux Foundation really isn't concerned about UEFI SecureBoot on ARM hardware (smart-phones, tablets, etc) compared to the work they are doing on x86 PCs with UEFI SecureBoot support for Linux.

  • Linux on ARMLast month Google and Samsung released the first commercially available product using the ARM® Cortex™-A15 SoC design: the new Series 3 Chromebook. Not only does the Chromebook have the new Samsung Exynos 5250 providing the core compute power, but it also has the new ARM Mali™-T604 providing the power to move all those pixels around.

  • Linux on ARMThe MK802 $74 mini PC ships with Google Android 4.0. It also ships with root access enabled, which means it’s possible to delete important system files or make other changes that could leave you with a less-than-useful operating system.

  • Linux on ARMIn anticipation of the arrival of my Raspberry pi I decided that I could wait no longer and decided to have a look at one of the Raspberry pi OS's. Due to the Raspberry pi having an arm processor, running the Raspberry pi Fedora remix within virtualbox would not be possible.

  • Linux on ARMArch Linux ARM is a distribution of Linux for ARM computers. We are aimed at ARMv5 platforms like plug computers, OXNAS-based ARMv6 PogoPlugs, Cortex-A8 platforms such as the BeagleBoard, and Cortex-A9 and Tegra platforms like the PandaBoard and TrimSlice. However, it can run on any device that supports ARMv5te or ARMv7 instruction sets. Our collaboration with Arch Linux brings users the best platform, newest packages, and installation support.

  • Linux on ARMAndroid phones have undergone a transformation over the last few years. Unlike other platforms that often seem reluctant to change, Android phones have only gotten bigger and faster, squeezing even more awesomeness into every cubic centimeter of each passing new generation. Along for the ride are other fun things such as allowing Android users to run software that isn't actually Android.

  • Linux on ARMThe HP TouchPad is capable of running a number of different operating systems. It ships with HP webOS software, but we’ve also seen Google Android and a number of Linux-based operating systems ported to run on the 9.7 inch tablet.

  • Linux on ARMAs we are all aware, Android relies on the Linux kernel for its core services and to act as an abstraction layer between hardware drivers and the rest of the software stack. However, some of us aren’t content until we have a full Gnome interface and a cache of staple apps suck as Firefox, Thunderbird, and Open Office at our disposal. We’ve covered a couple of ways to load the popular Ubuntu in the past. However neither way was quite as hands-off as some users would like.

  • Linux on ARMNOOK Tablet hackers have added a few new tools to their arsenal this weekend. Developer Cobroto has put together one of the first custom ROMs for the tablet, while developer AdamOutler has put together a rather impressive tool based on Ubuntu Linux which you can use to reformat the NOOK Tablet and roll back from OS 1.4.1 or later to NOOK Tablet OS 1.4.0.

  • Linux on ARMRunning computer operating systems on a phone is always an interesting experience. For most phones, booting into Linux is hard enough and Windows isn’t even an option. The HTC EVO 3D is not one of those phones.

  • Linux on ARMBeing a tablet, it makes a lot more sense to run Ubuntu on the ASUS Tranformer Prime than on a smartphone. Of course, that hasn’t stopped people from porting the popular Linux distro to the HTC Desire, for example, and for the old Windows Mobile devices, getting Ubuntu to work was a stepping stone for Android ports – a process probably best illustrated with the HTC HD2.

  • Linux on ARMWith Windows 8 coming out later this year, there has already been controversy about whether computers that ship with Windows 8 will have the ability to run Linux, either as a replacement for Windows or in a dual-boot setup.

  • Linux on ARMI had previously installed Sourcery G++ ARM Linux toolchain in Ubuntu to build some software running in Debian, but I encountered some issues with some libraries (libavg) that use gethostbyname in static libraries without any easy way to make it dynamic.

  • Linux on ARMWe're happy to announce that the new Pogoplug Series 4 plug computer has joined the ranks of our officially supported devices, complete with an updated U-Boot installation and a shiny new kernel that enables those USB 3.0 ports people have been itching to make good use of. The installation is also done in such a way that reverting back to stock functionality is dead simple, should you decide that a full Linux install isn't the right thing for you.

  • Linux on ARMOpenNI has shown some lights to natural interactions by using depth map images together with RGB images from cameras. Natural human gestures, e.g. hand moving, limbs movements are all being developed fast. Microsoft Kinect is a typical example that demonstrated the huge potential of the OpenNI in terms of game applications.

  • Linux on ARMThis article is the first of a series that describe how to develop and run applications using Oracle's Java SE for Embedded -- a full Java SE platform designed for high-end embedded systems -- on ARM-based hardware, specifically the BeagleBoard. This article details how to get Linux running on ARM-based hardware, specifically the BeagleBoard. The next article describes how to develop Java applications and run them on the Beagleboard.
