Linux on ARM
openSUSE Project, through Douglas DeMaio, proudly informs Softpedia via an email announcement about the general availability of a 64-bit Raspberry Pi 3 image of the openSUSE Leap 42.2 operating system.
GCC developers have been working to support the compiler-side changes for dealing with ARMv8-M Security Extensions.
The Thanksgiving weekend brought us two new point releases for the stable Linux 4.8 and long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernels. Linux kernel 4.8.11 arrived on November 26, 2016, and it's now considered the most advanced stable version.
Following up on Pine A64 board powered by Allwinner A64 quad core Cortex A53 processor, Pine64 has decided to work on a software compatible laptop based on the processor. PINEBOOK comes with 2GB RAM, 16 GB flash storage, a 11.6″ or 14″ display, and the usual ports you’d expect on such device.
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the first 64-bit version of the popular barebones computer, yet despite its processor upgrade, there isn’t an official 64-bit OS available for it. That’s because the Raspberry Pi Foundation has focused instead on making its Raspbian OS run on all generations of Pi.
While we have seen a number of ARM vendors in recent years open-source and mainline DRM/KMS drivers in the Linux kernel for supporting their display blocks on modern SoCs, there has been little activity in the open-source 3D space still for ARM SoCs.
The release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 2 is not the only thing SUSE Linux fans should get excited about today, as a community member published a very informative article about SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for Raspberry Pi.
Today, November 8, 2016, SUSE was extremely proud to announce the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 Service Pack 2 during the company's SUSECON 2016 event that takes place these days between November 7-11 in Washington, D.C., USA.
Last month, Canonical released a beta of Ubuntu Core 16. This is not a typical Linux distribution, but instead, one that is focused on Internet of Things and the cloud. What makes the operating system particularly interesting is the use of "Snaps" -- an ingenious modular way of handling software. It combines applications and dependencies into one convenient package.
On October 31, 2016, Linux kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman was proud to announce the release and general availability of the sixth maintenance update to the Linux 4.8 kernel series.
The Sabayon project has always brought us a modern, rolling, reliable and easy to use GNU/Linux distribution based on the Gentoo operating system, which is known for being notoriously difficult to install.
Today, October 28, 2016, renowned Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman informed the community about the immediate availability for download of the Linux 4.8.5 kernel maintenance release.
Just one week after announcing the availability of the first Release Candidate (RC) build of the upcoming Ubuntu Snappy Core 16 operating system, Snappy developer Michael Vogt informed us about the release of the RC2 milestone.
Last week, we reported on the release of the second maintenance update to the stable Docker 1.12 series of the open source app container engine, and it now looks like Docker 1.12.3 has been released with more improvements and bug fixes.
