For those that were interested by the CompuLab Trim-Slice, a desktop built around the ARM-based NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform, here are some more benchmarks. This time the numbers are looking at the performance of the dual-core ARM Cortex A9 system when using the Ubuntu 11.04, 11.10, and 12.04 packages.
Linaro is excited to announce that we will once again be having our Demo Friday at Linaro Connect Q1.12 to show the latest Linux developments on ARM.Linaro members, partners and community offer interactive demonstrations showcasing ARM-processor-based boards and Linaro builds of Android and Ubuntu.
I 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.
The CompuLab Trim-Slice is quite an interesting dual-core ARM Tegra 2 device. This nettop/desktop-oriented system ships with Ubuntu 11.04 by default, but it is also well supported by Arch Linux. In this article are some tests of the dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 1.0GHz system running under Arch.
Several security vulnerabilities that were discovered in the Linux kernel for OMAP4 packages by various developers, this time affecting the Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) operating system, were announced by Canonical.
A security vulnerability that was discovered in the Linux kernel for OMAP4 packages by Han-Wen Nienhuys, affecting the Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) operating system, was announced by Canonical.
Canonical announced that a few security vulnerabilities were discovered in the Linux kernel for OMAP4, by various developers, this time affecting the Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) operating system.
FXI's Cotton Candy at CES is proof of how Linaro can help a system vendor rapidly develop a product that is running the latest Android ICS and Ubuntu. FXI said in it's announcement it leveraged the Linaro for ARM open software and tools and leveraged its access to the ARM Mali Graphics software development ecosystem.
Anand and Jason had a chance to speak with FXI a while back, but at the time they weren’t able to give him any hands-on time with their micro-computer concept device, codenamed Cotton Candy. They’re demoing the hardware at CES, and this time we were able to play around with the device and get a feel for what it can do.
The Trim-Slice from CompuLab is a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 nettop based on the NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform. In this article are our first Ubuntu benchmarks of this low power, fan-less desktop with comparative figures to Intel's older platforms and the OMAP4660-based dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 PandaBoard ES.
OpenNI 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.
LLVM 3.0 was released some time ago and I've thought it'll be good to give it a try on stock Ubuntu 11.10 ARM. That means I've tested LLVM 3.0 with Ubuntu provided GNU C++ 4.6.1 and Clang 2.9. GNU C++ configuration looks:
Before hackers figured out how to install Google Android on the HP TouchPad, people were using the 9.7 inch tablet to run Ubuntu Linux… sort of. The discontinued tablet actually shipped with HP’s webOS software preloaded and early attempts to run Linux didn’t boot Linux instead of webOS. They basically let you run Ubuntu alongside Android and run Ubuntu apps without rebooting using UbuntuChroot.
Christian Robottom Reis, Engineering VP at Linaro, announced last week that an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) ARM port of the OpenJDK 6.0 package for Ubuntu is available for download and testing.
The Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet has a locked bootloader, which has prevented hackers from figuring out how to replace the version of Android that comes on the tablet with custom software such as CyanogenMod. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to run an alternate operating system on the NOOK Tablet.
Barnes & Noble might be doing everything that stands in its power to limit the number of applications that you can run on your Nook Tablet, but hackers will always find a way to run their software on the device if they want to.
Ubuntu is a community developed operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. Whether you use it at home, at school or at work Ubuntu contains all the applications you'll ever need, from word processing and email applications, to web server software and programming tools.
The Linaro Team is pleased to announce the release of Linaro 11.11, another of Linaro's releases delivered on a monthly cadence.This release includes components delivered by all Linaro Teams: Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams. Some outstanding effort has gone into delivering a lot of exciting updates and features integrated on top of Android and Ubuntu.
Early this year we got to see, through ARM-powered devices such as the Motorola Atrix, that it doesn't take even a netbook to run basic computing functions. At a live demonstration in New York City, FXI Technologies showed off the next evolution of that idea: an ARM-based computer on a USB stick without any of that extra smartphone or tablet baggage.
FXI Technologies announced a USB stick-sized computer that can run Android or Ubuntu on a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor. The "Cotton Candy" will include 1GB of RAM, a microSD slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an HDMI port, the company says.
