Linux on ARM
You may remember an Ubuntu 11.10 image was released via Geekbuying early January, but this image would not boot on my Hi802, lacked 2D/3D acceleration, and to my knowledge there hasn’t been any update since then.
The Zealz GK802 mini PC is a tiny computer that fits in the palm of your hand. It features a Freescale i.MX6 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. While the GK802 ships with Android and is designed to let you run Android apps on a TV, owners have been figuring out how to run Ubuntu Linux on the device for months.
The ARM collective doesn't just want to get into the data center. It wants to utterly transform it and help companies "manage down the legacy" of existing systems, as Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth put it during a live chat hosted by ARM Holdings to close out the Mobile World Congress extravaganza in Barcelona on Thursday.

The Linaro 13.02 release highlights the quality, effort and work of all the Linaro Teams – Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams – who have provided all the updates and new features that are integrated on top of Android and Ubuntu during this release cycle. The 13.02 cycle shows the reality of a dream and desire to unify, improve and build a better more effective future for Linux on ARM.
The latest in our series of ARM Linux benchmarking is looking at the impact of GCC compiler optimizations on the ARM Cortex A15-based Samsung Exynos 5 Dual.
The Genode OS operating system framework now supports direct memory access via IOMMUs and it also has initial support for ARM Cortex-A15 SoCs. This work can be found in the brand new Genode OS 13.02 release.
The 64-bit ARM (AArch64) port image of Debian/Ubuntu has surfaced. Debian-based Linux is now ready to play in a 64-bit ARM world, months ahead of any hardware appearing for the general public. Similar to x86_64, Linux is the first operating system ready for the new architecture.
How's the NVIDIA Tegra 3 performance with its four Cortex-A9 cores performing under the forthcoming GCC 4.8 release? Here's some new benchmarks, similar to the recent compiler testing with the ARM Cortex-A15.
Canonical announced that a couple of vulnerabilities had been found in the Linux kernel packages, this time affecting the OMAP4 kernel of the Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) operating system.
