• Linux on ARMWe've just been informed by Mr. Martin Wimpress from the Ubuntu MATE project that he and his team are in talks with the Lubuntu Linux developers to port the operating system to the Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computer (SBC).

  • Linux on ARMMartin Wimpress and Rohith Madhavan have had the great pleasure of announcing the first ever release of the highly anticipated Ubuntu MATE image for the Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computer (SBC).

  • Linux on ARMMatt Williams has shared with us a proof-of-concept project, which has been in the works for some time now and aims to help developers combine the power of the Juju orchestration tool with the innovative Ubuntu Snappy Core operating system.

  • Linux on ARMThe Ubuntu MATE project posts the details about the donations they've received each month, detailing who gave money and where they are going. They've been doing this for quite some time, and many times they've used those funds for donations to other projects. Now they are saving the money because Ubuntu MATE 15.10 for Raspberry Pi is coming out, and they think it's going to be a hit.

  • Linux on ARMJust a few moments ago, Arne Exton, the creator of numerous GNU/Linux and Android-x86 distributions, sent us an email to inform us about the release of a new build for his RaspEX Ubuntu- and Debian-based distro for Raspberry Pi 2 devices.

  • Linux on ARMThe guys over Orange Pi have announced a new, cheaper version of their well-known Orange Pi 2 SBC (Single-Board Computer), which is dubbed Orange Pi PC, it's open source, and it's available for only $15 (€13).

  • Linux on ARMCanonical's Oliver Grawert has had the great pleasure of announcing the general availability of the new and improved Raspberry Pi 2 image of the Ubuntu Snappy Core 15.04 operating system.

  • Linux on ARMOn September 7, Canonical's John McAleely sent an email to the Ubuntu Touch mailing list, informing all developers and users about his idea of building a 64-bit image of the Ubuntu for phones operating system.

  • Linux on ARMThe developers behind the TDE (Trinity Desktop Environment) project, an open-source desktop environment that keeps the spirit of KDE3.5 alive, have announced the immediate availability for download of Trinity Desktop Environment R14.0.1.

  • Linux on ARMAfter reporting last week news about the Ubuntu MATE 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) operating system running on the Banana Pi BPI-M1 SBC (Single-board computer) device, we're informing you today that Snappy Ubuntu Core runs on Banana Pi BPI-M2.

  • Linux on ARMScaleaway launched their hosting services with dedicated ARM servers based on Marvell Armada 370/XP quad core ARM Cortex A9 processor this spring for 10 Euros per month, or 0.02 Euro per hour, and at the time, some people found it was not that attractive, as similarly priced plans provided by Linode or DigitalOcean with Intel server were also available, and it might have only been really compelling for people who specifically required an ARM server to play with.

  • Linux on ARMWe've seen them all, Ubuntu running on virtually anything, Ubuntu powering all sorts of devices, from mobile phones to embedded and industrial PCs. Today, we want to show you Ubuntu MATE 15.04 running on Banana Pi BPI-M1.

  • Linux on ARMWe already knew Hardkernel was working on ODROID-C1+ development board, an update the popular ODROID-C1 board with the same Amlogic S805 processor, storage and memory, but with a standard HDMI port replacing the micro HDMI port, I2S support, better micro SD card and HDMI-CEC support, an micro USB OTG port that can be used to power the board, and an included heatsink. The board is now up for sale for $37, or just $2 more than the original ODROID-C1 board.

  • Linux on ARMA new Snappy Ubuntu Core 15.04 has been announced for Raspberry Pi 2, and users have been advised to re-flash their systems as soon as possible.

  • Linux on ARMNow that I’ve completed Zidoo X1 review, I’ve decided to try out Ubuntu on the mini PC following a tip from one reader that Orange Pi 2 images can run on the platform since it’s based on the same Allwinner H3 processor, but with some limitations such as WiFi not working.

  • Linux on ARMEarlier this week I posted some initial benchmark figures for the NVIDIA Tegra X1 on Ubuntu Linux. Those results showed much promise for this 64-bit ARM big.LITTLE SoC that also bears a Maxwell GPU, but that wasn't tested for the initial comparison. Here are a few more benchmark results from this Tegra X1, including an Ubuntu 15.04 installation to show the difference against the Tegra X1 on Ubuntu 14.10.

  • Linux on ARMNVIDIA's Tegra X1 64-bit ARM SoC running (non-Android) Linux is a beast! I was given access to a SHIELD Android TV that was configured to run Ubuntu Linux, which has led for some exciting benchmarks. In some workloads, the Tegra X1 comes up just shy of an Intel Core i3 "Broadwell" system. The Tegra X1 has me very excited about the future of ARMv8 hardware on Linux and NVIDIA's continued Tegra advancements.

  • Linux on ARMIf you've never used Linux before, don't worry. It's just as easy to use as any other operating system, and in many ways, it's easier. There are no drivers to chase and new applications are always installed through the Linux equivalent of an app store. And, as you're going to be installing and using Linux on your Raspberry Pi, it makes good sense to create your SD card from within a Linux environment.

  • Linux on ARMCanonical's Snappy Ubuntu Core development team has started reporting the new features and changes that have been implemented lately in the operating system for Internet of Things.

  • Linux on ARMLinaro 15.04 has been released with Linux 4.1-rc4, Linux 3.10.79 and 3.14.42 (LSK), and Android 5.1_r3. The Ubuntu image is now based on Vivid instead of Utopic.
