Linux ARM and openSUSE

  • Linux on ARMHiSilicon has showcased their latest server SoC and board at Linaro Connect Hong Kong 2015, with up to two processors with 32 Cortex A57 cores @ 2.1GHz, 8 DIMM DDR3 slots (up to 128 GB RAM), 12 SATA ports, 4 PCIe slots, 10GbE / GbE ports.

  • Linux on ARMHaoyu Electronics has made a new board similar to their MarsBoard RK3066, but instead of using a CPU module with Rockchip RK3066, they’ve used the industrial version of the chip called Rockchip PX2 dual core Cortex A9 processor.

  • Linux on ARMReview - Linux distro OpenSUSE 13.1 is a modest but important update that concentrates on stability and overall polish. There are quite a few new features - like the rewritten system configuration utility YaST, new developer tools even a new version of OpenSUSE for Raspberry Pi - but 13.1 is really focused on building a rock-solid Linux distro that "just works."

  • Linux on ARMJoining Fedora and Ubuntu, the new version of the community driven OpenSUSE can now be run on AArch64 processors, further preparing the market for servers running on the new 64-bit ARM architecture.

  • Linux on ARMopenSUSE is not only one of the major Linux distributions, but is also one of the oldest distributions tracing its history back to 1996 when it was called S.u.S.E. (an acronym for Software und System Entwicklung); it is also the upstream project for the well known SUSE Linux Enterprise distribution (SLE). As with many distributions, it offers a large array of Open Source software as part of the core distribution and much more via the Open Build Service.

  • Linux on ARMThe openSUSE ARM community, through Andrew Wafaa, is proud to announce that the openSUSE ARM Hackathon event takes place these days, between 8 and 12 April 2013, at the SUSE offices in Nuremberg, as well as online for everyone else who cannot attend in person.

  • Linux on ARMRiku Voipio of Linaro, Andrew Wafaa of ARM, Olof Johannson of Google, Sonny Rao of Google and Marcin Juszkiewicz of Linaro talk about hacking and using the full performance of the ARM Powered Samsung Chromebook to run Ubuntu, Debian, Open Suse on this ARM Powered laptop,

  • Linux on ARMAccording to ZDnet, “Amazon’s top selling laptop doesn’t run Windows or Mac OS, it runs Linux”. And that top selling device is the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook. Billed as an ideal second computer just aiming to make it simple to access online services, without the hassle and risk of running another full Windows machine.

  • Linux on ARMLast month Google and Samsung released the first commercially available product using the ARM® Cortex™-A15 SoC design: the new Series 3 Chromebook. Not only does the Chromebook have the new Samsung Exynos 5250 providing the core compute power, but it also has the new ARM Mali™-T604 providing the power to move all those pixels around.

  • Linux on ARMThe first stable release of openSUSE for ARM has just been announced. openSUSE 12.2 for ARM is officially available for the Beagleboard, Beagleboard xM, Pandaboard, Pandaboard ES, Versatile Express (QEMU) and the rootfs can be mounted with chroot, but "best effort' ports have been made for Calxeda Highbank server, i.MX53 Loco development board, CuBox computer, Origen Board and Efika MX smart top.Work is also apparently being done on a Raspberry Pi port which should be available for the next release.

  • Linux on ARMAs was promised last week, the openSUSE ARM team has released openSUSE 12.2 for the ARM architecture! Almost all of the usual openSUSE distribution (>5000 packages) builds and runs on all the ARM hardware it has been tested on. Read on to find out more.

  • Linux on ARMSamsung's $249 Chromebook is a notebook designed to run Google Chrome, but the laptop can run other operating systems as well, including Linux. Google introduced its new Samsung-made Chromebook on Thursday, Oct. 18, and just days after the announcement a Google developer has figured out how to run Ubuntu on the notebook.

  • Linux on ARMSamsung's $249 Chromebook is a notebook designed to run Google Chrome OS. But that's not the only operating system that the laptop can run. We've already seen Ubuntu installed on the new Chromebook... and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

  • Linux on ARMHot on the heels of the news that the Google Chromebook runs openSUSE (even made slashdot) and following the closing of the openSUSE Conference in Prague, Dirk Müller let the ARM team knowthat RC2 is about ready to go and this will be the final before the release of openSUSE for ARM! Read on to find out some details of this exciting release.

  • Linux on ARMOne of few very technical and worthwhile sessions during the openSUSE Conference at this weekend's LinuxDays event was about porting Linux to new ARM-based hardware devices.
     

  • Linux on ARMWhile Ubuntu has been taking the ARM server and desktop markets seriously for quite some time and is leading quite well on that front, Fedora has been getting behind ARM, and other distributions like Gentoo and Arch have their own interesting ARM Linux undertakings, openSUSE has been rather late to the party.

  • Linux on ARMJos Poortvliet from openSUSE has announced earlier today, October 1st, that the first Release Candidate of the upcoming openSUSE 12.2 ARM operating system is now available for download and testing.

  • Linux on ARMAfter 11 months of grueling work, openSUSE is pleased to announce the first Release Candidate for openSUSE 12.2 on the ARM architecture. After discussing ARM first at the openSUSE Conference in 2011, the openSUSE ARM team has managed to bring up openSUSE from nowhere to being a truly usable and functional distribution on the ARM version 7 architecture in time for the new openSUSE Conference in Prague next month!

  • Linux on ARMAccording to an email from openSUSE developer Andrew Wafaa, a group of openSUSE developers are working on implementing full support for ARM processor cores in version 12.2 of the distribution, due to be released in July. The email summarises the key points from, and results of, a discussion between developers interested in an ARM port.

  • Linux on ARMAndrew Wafaa is hoping to make openSUSE the Linux distribution of choice for the growing number of ARM-powered devices out there, but the project has run into a snag: a lack of ARM hardware. Like many open source projects, openSUSE has corporate sponsorship in the form of a partnership with Attachmate subsidiary SUSE - once part of Novell - which takes the open source openSUSE technology and bundles it with support contracts in a commercial format.
