Linux on ARM
With the Linux 4.5 kernel the ARMv6/ARMv7 platforms are now multi-platform after five years of work. Olof Johansson sent in all of the ARM SoC updates for the Linux 4.5 merge window on Friday night. Most significant is the ARM multi-platform code update.
Android pretty much own the smartphone market with over 82% market share. Chrome OS is also making a serious dent in the PC market. Despite the dominance of these two Linux based distributions there are many users, including my friend Bryan Lunduke, who want to run 'regular Linux desktops' on tablets.
On December 10th 2015, Free Electrons engineer Alexandre Belloni gave a half-day seminar on the topic of Porting Linux on an ARM board in Toulouse, France. This seminar covers topics like porting the bootloader, understanding the concept of the Device Tree, writing Linux device drivers and more.
After reading the excelent http://intermezzos.github.io/, I felt excited again to work on my small kernel, but I was decided to focus on the ARM arch, since it's been awhile since I bought my Raspberry Pi B+, but never spent some time playing with it. So I started to read more about it on osdev wiki and how to get started with bare metal raspberry development.
Lubuntu developer and maintainer Rafael Laguna wrote an interesting blog post today on the distribution's website, showcasing the upcoming Lubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system on a Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computer, with the LXQt desktop environment.
AMD Roadmap showed “Seattle” Cortex A57 server SoC were expected in H2 2014, which later became known as Opteron A1100, and the company unveiled their Optron A1100 development board in summer 2014, but since then there has been a few delays, the announcement of Huskyboard 96Boards EE development board, and finally they announced availability of three Opteron A1100 processors yesterday.
Canonical, through Michael Vogt, proudly announced the availability of a new set of images for the all-snap architecture for the company's Snappy Ubuntu Core operating system used in embedded and IoT devices.
The Tiny Core developers have been happy to announce the release and immediate availability for download of the Tiny Core piCore 7.0 operating system, a special edition of Tiny Core Linux designed for Raspberry Pi single-board computers.
For those interested in small, low-power ARM single-board computers, up for your viewing pleasure today are benchmarks of several different boards from the Raspberry Pi Zero to the Banana Pi M2.
MYIR announced a tiny COM that runs Linux on Atmel’s low power, Cortex-A5 SAMA5 SoCs, and offers display, networking, USB, serial, GPIO, ADC, and more.
Axoimtek’s rugged, fanless, wireless-ready “rBOX630” box-PC runs Linux on a dual-core i.MX6 SoC and targets mobile, IoT, and light industrial apps.
It looks like 2016 will be the year of single-board computers, as more and more companies build all sorts of awesome boards inspired in some way by the Raspberry Pi movement.
Can you believe this? You'd think we saw them all, but some people amaze us every day with their unique and awesome inventions. Someone just created a digital mirror powered by a Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computer and the Ubuntu MATE operating system.
PINE A64 is a new, first 64-bit expandable Quad-Core board that can be used as a regular PC, a media center, server, and pretty much everything else. Its makers are now looking for funding on Kickstarter and they are having a lot of success.
