In the first post about my new Raspberry Pi, I explored about NOOBS (the New Out Of Box Software package) and Raspbian, the Debian GNU/Linux spin customised for the Pi. This time I want to take a look at the other two general-purpose Linux distributions which have been customised and packaged for the Pi, Arch Linux ARM and Pidora.
It Begins: AMD Announces Its First ARM Based Server SoC,... - Around 15 months ago, AMD announced that it would be building 64-bit ARM based SoCs for servers in 2014. Less than a month into 2014, AMD made good on its promise and...

Linux on ARM
The Linaro-hosted "Enterprise Group" (LEG) is dedicated to accelerate Linux ARM server ecosystem development and extends the list of Linaro members beyond ARM silicon vendors to Server OEM's and commercial Linux providers.
Updated! - CRUX-ARM is a port of CRUX distribution to ARM devices and was born in the beginning of 2009. The primary focus of CRUX-ARM is provide a port of CRUX distribution to ARM devices. It follows CRUX guidelines, trying to keep in mind the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) concept and share characteristics. It's targeted to experienced linux (and better CRUX) users.
Linux is omnipresent in your life via gadget running Android, but in the desktop world, as many of you already know, it’s not straightforward to get a Linux distribution fully work on ARM platform, because each ARM SoC or board is different, and above all binary blobs used for GPUs, VPUs, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chips can make it extremely complex, even impossible, to have a fully working ARM Linux distribution for a given hardware.
Showing off the latest Applied Micro 64bit X-Gene ARM Server Development Board https://myxgene.apm.com/ (which Rob Savoye of Linaro eagerly wants to start playing with), a Dell's 64bit ARM Server solution running Fedora 19 advancing quite a bit with advancing usability, working on a proof of concept for early 2014 for Dell's key cloud server customers before going into mass production (Dell already did some 32bit ARM Server tests in Europe with some customers), some things like Oracle JDK still has to fully come over (needs some tuning) to the platform.
People have been loading Ubuntu and other Linux distributions onto Android TV sticks for about as long as these cheap ARM-based devices have been available. But the Rikomagic MK802 IV LE is one of the first models to come with Ubuntu pre-loaded.
Linux is a free and open-source software (F/OSS) operating system. TI and its partners provide a complete spectrum of Linux software and services (see: Distributions below). TI provides Linux Software Development Kits (SDK) to ensure developers an easy set up and out-of-box development experience.
This new Intrinsic (http://www.intrinsyc.com/) Dragonboard uses as Snapdragon 800 processor and has an optional display. The Dragonboard is capable of playing 4k video. The Dragonboard can even run Ubuntu. The dragonboard is already available for a price of 499 USD. INTRINSYC makes both system on module designs for 200 USD as well as development boards.
AMD in 2014 will be delivering a 64bit ARM processor for servers. The ARM Architecture and Ecosystem enables servers to achieve greater performance per watt and greater performance per dollar. The code name for the product is Seattle. AMD Seattle is expected to reach mass market cloud servers in the second half of 2014.
It's been a long time coming, but the Fedora 20 "Heisenbug" release brings ARM to equal status in Fedora with x86 and x86_64 releases. The Fedora 20 release, out just more than a month after the 10th anniversary of the first Fedora release, now boasts ARM as a primary architecture.
To avoid clashing with the holidays in many parts of the world, this month’s release – the last for 2013 – is a week early, but contains some key Linaro Android and Ubuntu baselines developments.
Updated - ARM server chip designer Calxeda has shut down as one of its executives told The Register: "We simply ran out of money."
Geniatech engineer shows how they support dual-booting to some basic Linux from the SD card on several of the Geniatech Android Set-top-boxes, going back to their single-core AmLogic M3 based Set-top-boxes and also to their new ones.
Virtual machines are usually run on server or desktop PC to run several operating systems simultaneous. About 2 years ago, I wrote about an embedded hypervisor running Linux and Android on the Pandaboard develompent board, with the goal of separating home and enterprise operating systems in mobile devices so that enterprise data is safe.
Fedora has been supporting ARM architecture for a while now, but it was only as a secondary architecture without official support. With the recent Fedora 20 release, nicknamed “Heisenbug”, the ARM architecture, more exactly ARMv7 hard float and greater, is promoted to a primary architecture meaning ARMv7 will have the same status as x86 and x86_64 architectures with packages officially build and supported by the Fedora community.
