Linux ARM 64-bit

  • Linux on ARMVirtual machines are usually run on server or desktop PC to run several operating systems simultaneous. About 2 years ago, I wrote about an embedded hypervisor running Linux and Android on the Pandaboard develompent board, with the goal of separating home and enterprise operating systems in mobile devices so that enterprise data is safe.

  • Linux on ARMFedora has been supporting ARM architecture for a while now, but it was only as a secondary architecture without official support. With the recent Fedora 20 release, nicknamed “Heisenbug”, the ARM architecture, more exactly ARMv7 hard float and greater, is promoted to a primary architecture meaning ARMv7 will have the same status as x86 and x86_64 architectures with packages officially build and supported by the Fedora community.

  • 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 ARMA week after celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Fedora Project released the Fedora 20 ("Heisenbug") beta on Nov. 12. Thanks to a few stubborn Heisenbugs, the release was several weeks late, but that is but a blip compared to some of Fedora's more historic delays.

  • Linux on ARMWhile 64-bit ARM hardware isn't publicly out yet, the AArch64/ARM64 support continues to be improved within the Linux kernel and readying for the onslaught of new, faster ARM devices to appear in 2014.

  • Linux on ARMEnterprise open-source software vendor Red Hat is keeping an eye on the development of 64-bit ARM processors for servers, building up expertise in case the nascent platform takes hold in the data center.

  • Linux on ARMLibvirt, a collection of software tools that provides a convenient way to manage virtual machines and other virtualization functionality, such as storage and network interface management, is now at version 1.1.4.

  • Linux on ARMAt ARM TechCon, Cavium demonstrated an SDK for its upcoming ARMv8-based Project Thunder SoC family, and announced Ubuntu support for Project Thunder, while Cavium subsidiary MontaVista announced Carrier Grade Linux support for ARMv8. Meanwhile, Cavium and MontaVista joined Linaro and other companies in launching OpenDataPlane, an open source networking SoC interoperability standards organization for Linux.

  • Linux on ARMARM announced an embedded version of its ARMv8 architecture that will add virtualization and lightweight Linux support to the next of generation Cortex-R processors. The ARMv8-R architecture is 32-bit, but borrows features from the 64-bit ARMv8-A such as hardware-based virtualization and a more advanced MPU, enabling safety-critical embedded applications like automotive computers to run RTOSes, bare metal code, and Linux and Android on a single processor.

  • Linux on ARMSan Jose, CA – October 29, 2013 – Cavium, Inc., (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of 64bit microprocessors for a variety of enterprise, datacenter and service provider infrastructure applications, today announced that Cavium’s Thunder ARMv8 processors are supported in Ubuntu 13.10, the latest release from Canonical.

  • Linux on ARMSummary: The demo highlights what's possible, but Dell will launch 64-bit ARM servers "when customer and ecosystem readiness are aligned."

  • Linux on ARMWind River announced Wind River Linux 6, featuring Yocto Project 1.5 Linux kernel and toolchain, and expanded multi-architecture hardware support including 64-bit ARMv8. Wind River also announced a faster new Yocto-compatible version of its carrier-grade Wind River Open Virtualization software.

  • Linux on ARMWind River has expanded the hardware support in its embedded Linux for the latest ARM, Intel, MIPS, and Power architectures as well as updating the kernel, toolchain, and user space for the latest Yocto Project release.

  • Linux on ARMWhen it comes to the server industry, ARM Holdings doesn't seem to abide by dry logic much when making its forecasts, though some might say optimism is not a sin, so it's all fine. The following is an outline of its current stance and expectations.

  • Linux on ARMIn this article, I’m using raspberry pi hardware, and using pedora 32-bit target OS, Scientific Linux 6.1 64-bit as host OS, crosstool-ng as cross compiling tool. I will give a brief introduction steps about how to build binaries and shared/static libraries, and in the process, some building depends on third party libraries

  • Linux on ARMThe 64-bit ARM back-end to the LLVM/Clang compiler now supports generating NEON instructions for AArch64.

  • Linux on ARMThe world's first ever public demo of a general purpose Operating System running on 64-bit ARM silicon took place at the 2013 Red Hat Summit, where we demonstrated Fedora for AArch64 running on Applied Micro X-Gene. Red Hat and Applied Micro have been partners for many years, collaborating pre-silicon, post-silicon, and at all points in between.

  • Linux on ARMAfter unveiling their GFX servers based on Marvell ARM Cortex A9 SoC at Computex 2012, Mitac announced their new 7-Star server at Computex 2013. This new server is based on Applied Micro X-Gene SoC featuring ARM Cortex A57 cores, and is one of the first, if not the first, 64-Bit ARM server ever.

  • Linux on ARMAfter KVM virtualization was brought to ARM last year with the ARM Cortex-A15 SoCs supporting hardware virtualization, support for the Kernel-based Virtual Machine for 64-bit ARM (AArch64) SoCs is being prepared.
