The BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu tablet is powered by a 64-bit ARM processor, so the users have already started to ask around if they will be able to run the 32-bit apps from the phone on the tablet. The short answer is yes. The long answer is that it will take a little bit of work.

Linux on ARM
Canonical - Ubuntu's parent company - has finally unveiled a tablet running the Linux based operating system, Ubuntu. The operating system has been adapted to suit a tablet device but at the core it is the fully fledged software that desktop Ubuntu users are familiar with. The main benefit of the tablet running an non-stripped down version of Ubuntu is that it inherits the same security and updates that desktop users get.
We previously knew ODROID-C2 was in development thanks to a document and source code from Amlogic themselves. We did not have the full details at the time, and Amlogic’s document even got the RAM capacity wrong. Hardkernel has finally announced ODROID-C2 development board based on Amlogic S905 will be selling on March 2016 for $40, and released specifications and some photos.
Embedian’s “SMARC-T4378” module runs Linux or Android on TI’s Cortex-A9 AM437x SoC, and features up to 1GB RAM, 4GB eMMC, dual GbE, and an optional carrier.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.4.1 LTS, Linux kernel 3.10.96 LTS, and Linux kernel 3.14.60 LTS, renowned kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman has informed users about the seventeenth maintenance build of Linux kernel 4.1 LTS.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.4.1 LTS and Linux kernel 3.10.96 LTS, kernel maintainer and developer Greg Kroah-Hartman has published some details about the availability of the sixtieth maintenance build of the Linux 3.14 LTS kernel series.
It is finally here! The first point release of the Linux 4.4 LTS kernel series, which was announced by Linus Torvalds on January 10, 2016, arrives today for GNU/Linux distributions that already adopted it.
Chinese SBC seller FriendlyARM published a new video on their YouTube account to show us that the Ubuntu MATE operating system runs flawlessly on the NanoPi 2 single-board computer attached to a capacitive touch LCD.
Shenzhen Xunlong launched a $10, Linux- and Android-friendly “Orange Pi One” hacker board with a quad-core Cortex-A7 SoC and a Pi-compatible expansion port.
Intrinsyc launched its first SBC: an “Open-Q 600” that runs Android or Linux on a quad-core Snapdragon 600 with 2GB RAM, 16GB eMMC, GbE, WiFi, BT, and GPS.
While ARM processors don't lack for software development support in the mobile device space, it's a different story when it comes to servers. Software and firmware tools for ARM servers are fragmented, and there's no single go-to package for users to configure and get ARM servers up and running easily.
SoCs becoming more complex, and go beyond homogeneous multicore systems by mixing different type of cores such as high performance cores, low power real-time cores, or even FPGA fabric.
This tutorial covers some aspects about compiling your own Linux kernel for your ARM device. Most Linux distributions for the PC/x86 platform maintain a Linux kernel which supports a broad range of hardware devices, so it has become very unlikely to compile your own kernel from source. For the ARM platform the Linux kernel is provided by the board or system on chip (SoC) manufacturer. In some cases these kernels include a minimal set of features and device drivers only.
For any NVIDIA Tegra users out there, a ton of exciting support work is finally being mainlined with the Linux 4.5 kernel.
Dylan Callahan has the great pleasure of informing us today, January 22, 2016, about the immediate availability of the third build of his Chromium OS operating system for the Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computer (SBC).
