• Linux on ARMThe new wave of fun geek toys is inexpensive, hackable, tiny Linux-powered ARM computers, and they're red hot. This is the year to go small.

  • Linux on ARMVIA Technologies is entering Raspberry Pi territory with its latest product — the APC. It's a $49 barebones computer designed to run Google Android. The system includes a processor, memory, storage, and a range of ports for connectivity — but no case.

  • Linux on ARMSix years ago, Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton set out to reignite programming in schools with a cheap, compact computing platform. Despite targeting students, his foundation's $35 computer captured the imaginations of tinkers worldwide, resulting in overwhelming demand. Interest was so high, that distributors Premier Farnell and RS buckled under the strain of preorders in February. The former outfit later said demand was 20 times greater than its supply, with orders hitting 700 a second at one point.

  • Linux on ARMIf you haven't heard of the open platform-friendly, inexpensive Linux-powered computing platform known as Raspberry Pi by now, you will be for years to come. Just as the Altair hailed the era of the personal computer, the Raspberry Pi is ushering in a new era of powerful, stunningly low-cost PCs on a board not much larger than an Arduino Uno.

  • Linux on ARMLiam has just uploaded new versions of the Debian and Arch Linux ARM distributions to our mirror system. Head on over to the downloads page. The Debian image contains the following updates to the prior 13-04-2012 release:

  • Linux on ARMI had previously written the instructions to build an older version of Chromium (via Berkelium) for ARM using Beagleboard/Overo rootfs in order to use it with Xibo digital signage. Recently I’ve been contacted by hexxeh, who maintains Chromium OS vanilla builds for x86 and MacOS computer, as he intends to provide Chromium OS for the Raspberry Pi, and you should be able to get a SD card image once everything is working from the site above.

  • Linux on ARMIt's been the most highly anticipated launch in the history of development boards, but one of the most problem-ridden too. Originally unveiled early last year with a suggested launch schedule of September 2011, the Raspberry Pi single-board computer has proven a beast to get out of the door - but the first retail models are finally landing in customers' hands this week.

  • 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 ARMRapidDisk LX is a custom ARM-based Linux distribution built entirely out of source and inspired by the Cross Linux From Scratch project. Its main and only purpose is to provide RapidDisk functionality as a SCSI Target over a Storage Area Network (SAN).

  • Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi folks have been getting a lot of attention for their $35 PC with an ARM-based processor and support for some open source software. But as the cost of computer components continues to drop, the Raspberry Pi is hardly the only inexpensive PC capable of running Linux.

  • Linux on ARMIn November 2011, the Raspberry Pi foundation announced that Nokia purchased codes for 400 boards from the 1st 10,000 batch, in order to give them away to selected developers that are interested in helping develop and test Qt 5 on the Raspberry Pi. This developer program is called QtonPi.

  • Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi $35 Linux computer sold out within hours of going on sale in February - with demand for the device reportedly hitting 700 orders per minute. The upshot is a lot of people who wanted the credit card-sized Raspberry Pi have been left empty-handed - with anyone ordering the device today unlike to receive one until about July.

  • Linux on ARMWe are happy to announce our first ARM port and support for RaspBerry Pi. Many thanks to the XBMC Team member Edgar (gimli) Hucek and the whole XBMC dev team for supporting us with this!This is our first ARM build and is early days but it spells yet another suite of current and future hardware that OpenELEC will support. In the future you can expect to see more and more capable ARM based hardware at low cost coming onto the market and OpenELEC will be with you all the way to integrate these devices into your home.

  • Linux on ARMIt took several weeks longer than planned, but the "recommended" Linux distribution for the Raspberry Pi, the credit-card sized computer that retails for $35, Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix is finally ready to run.

  • Linux on ARMFOR THE LUCKY FEW who have escaped supply shortages and manufacturing glitches to actually get their hands on a Raspberry Pi microcomputer there is now a recommended Linux distro to install.

  • Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi foundation has suffered a production setback that could delay delivery of the organization's $35 Linux computer. The manufacturer accidentally used ethernet jacks without integrated magnetics, built-in transformers that provide DC-isolation and help filter noise.

  • Linux on ARMWhile many eyes are on Windows 8 at the moment, there's another computing story that could prove to be much more important: the launch of the Raspberry Pi. It's a bare-bones Linux PC that costs a pittance, and it's designed to help encourage kids to code - but it's also powerful enough to handle everyday tasks such as spreadsheets and word processing.

  • Linux on ARMSome days I think ARM computing belongs in the same category as “the cloud” — both have generated huge amounts of buzz but haven’t always lived up to the hype.  Yet the latest ARM product to hit the market, the Raspberry Pi mini-computer, might be proof that there is something to the supposed ARM revolution after all — particularly for the open source channel. Here’s why.

  • Linux on ARMThe Linux operating system for the Raspberry Pi bare-bones computer is ready to download. The Arch Linux ARM download is based on Arch Linux, which the Raspberry Pi Foundation says "provides a lightweight base structure that allows you to shape the system to your needs".

  • Linux on ARMA credit-card sized computer designed to help teach children to code has gone on sale for the first time. - The Raspberry Pi is a bare-bones, low-cost computer created by volunteers mostly drawn from academia and the UK tech industry.
