Linux ARM driver

  • Linux on ARMA few Phoronix readers have written in with excitement thinking in recent weeks - including this morning - that ARM open-sourced their Linux/Android graphics driver... But in reality, nothing has changed.

  • Linux on ARMThe latest Linux kernel's revision number may be 3.14, but don't expect any pi jokes in the release notes. Do, however, look past the matter-of-fact release announcement on the Linux kernel development mailing list for some intriguing improvements in ways that may have implications for cutting-edge processors and for cloud/VM environments.

  • Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer that sells for as little as $25 and which can be used for everything from learning to code to surfing the web to operating as a cheap home media center.

  • Linux on ARMGreg Kroah-Hartman announced a few minutes ago, February 20, that Linux kernels 3.13.4, 3.12.12, 3.10.31 LTS, and 3.4.81 LTS are now available for download.

  • Linux on ARMVersion: 334.16 BETA

  • Linux on ARMThe FreeBSD Foundation has issued their quarterly status report for Q4'2013 that covers the work they've done on improving FreeBSD drivers, virtualization advancements, desktop improvements, and other enhancements within this leading BSD world.

  • Linux on ARMSince the announcement of ARM Mali-T604 in 2010, ARM has explained that GPGPU (General Purpose computing on GPU), aka GPU Compute, would be one of the key features of their new Mali graphics processor, and the company now expects GPGPU to become mainstream in embedded and mobile devices in 2014 and beyond.

  • Linux on ARMThe Freedreno open-source graphics driver project that's a clean-room reverse-engineered implementation of the Qualcomm Adreno graphics core on the company's ARM SoCs keeps reaching new milestones. While the driver is mostly just worked on by Rob Clark and without any support from Qualcomm, it's quickly becoming the flagship open-source ARM graphics driver for the Linux desktop.

  • Linux on ARMNVIDIA is bringing their 319.xx proprietary graphics driver from Linux to ARM.

     

  • Linux on ARMThe Lima driver is slowly but surely progressing for supporting ARM Mali graphics hardware in an open-source world. A Mesa driver has been started, their demo code can be faster than the binary driver, user-space memory management is being tackled, and evidently the management at ARM Holdings isn't too happy.
