Developers porting Ubuntu Linux to devices with Rockchip RK3066 processors

2012-Nov-13 | Tags: developmentmk802ubuntu

Linux on ARMRockchip's RK3066 chip is a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with clock speeds up to 1.6 GHz. The processor is popular with Chinese tablet makers, and a growing number of USB thumb drive-sized mini computers and TV dongles (such as the UG802 and MK802 III) use the RK3066 processor.

Most of those devices ship with Google Android, and since Rockchip doesn't tend to release a lot of source code for its processors, it had seemed like that was the only operating system they would run. But developer AndrewDB has been making some serious progress porting Ubuntu 12.10 Linux to run on the UG802 (and other RK3066 devices).
