Linux ARM emulation

  • Linux on ARMMichael Roth has had the great pleasure of announcing the release of QEMU 2.6, the latest and most advanced version of the widely-used and highly customizable virtualization software for GNU/Linux operating systems.

  • Linux on ARMWith the recent launch of several low cost Cortex A53 development boards, 64-bit ARM hardware is now pretty common and inexpensive, but if you want to run 64-bit ARM code on your x86 Linux computer, Riku Voipio, a software engineer working for Linaro, wrote some instructions to run Ubuntu 16.04 Aarch64 Cloud image in QEMU.

  • Linux on ARMA few weeks ago, I finally decided to buy a Raspberry Pi 2 board as it could always be useful for some testing, at least for comparison purpose. I ended up buying it from Ebay for $40, as it’s more $3 to $5 more expensive locally.

  • Linux on ARMBesides Wine switching to yearly releases and making Wine-Staging official, there were many other interesting sessions at this year's WineConf. One such session was discussing the state of Wine for alternative architectures.

  • Linux on ARMChina-based Loongson has announced two 64-bit quad core processors based around a MIPS-derived architecture and including binary translation to run x86 and ARM code.

  • Linux on ARMEltechs’s faster ExaGear Desktop software version now supports ARMv6, in addition to ARMv7, letting users run x86 apps on all models of the Raspberry Pi.

  • Linux on ARMThe final version of QEMU 2.3.0, an open source machine emulator and virtualizer software for GNU/Linux operating systems, was announced today, April 27, by the QEMU development team, through Michael Roth.

  • Linux on ARMEltechs announced a virtual machine that runs 32-bit x86 Linux applications on ARMv7 SBCs and mini-PCs, and is claimed to be 4.5 times faster than QEMU.

  • Linux on ARMYesterday on Phoronix we covered 12 new feature proposals for Fedora 21 and following that story yesterday were a handful of new feature proposals for this next major Fedora release. On top of the features already approved, the features talked about yesterday and last week's approved features, a few more proposals were sent in yesterday for the approval by the Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee (FESCo) this week. These very latest proposals include:

  • Linux on ARMThe latest illustration of software patents being bad and of pure silliness is a group of Chinese people trying to obtain a patent covering Wine on ARM for having the open-source program running Windows programs on the CPU architecture popular to smart-phones.

  • Linux on ARMThe recently released QEMU 1.5 supports virtualisation with KVM on the Cortex A15 series of ARM cores. Another new addition is an experimental feature for passing through graphics chips from the host to the guest via VFIO; however, the feature is currently only thought to work reliably with some of the graphics chips. Both features rely on Linux kernel support that became available with Linux 3.9.

  • Linux on ARMThe Linux kernel is having to remove support for NWFPE and VFP emulation code due to a licensing conflict. Removing NWFPE and VFP from the kernel will effectively render older ARM hardware on Linux useless until a solution is determined.

  • Linux on ARMARM, ARM and ARM. Everybody is using it - knowing or not knowing. So I decided to write a small tutorial about installing Slackware ARM in Qemu. For this tutorial I expect a few things:
     

  • Linux on ARMRight before Wine on Android was shown for running Windows applications on Google's Android operating system, the state of Wine for the ARM architecture was talked about. There's a few different Wine ARM scenarios possible, including the ability to run Win32 binaries on a Linux-based ARM system.

  • Android-x86A quick search reveals that the WWW holds a vast array of material and tools classed as emulators, virtual machines and interpreters. These range from the highly sophisticated to simple academic exercises. If you narrow your search and look for X86 assembler emulators, you will find commercial DOS emulators, Basic language tools, Java utilities such as Jasmin, and a CodeProject article, ASM.net X86, amongst others.

  • Linux on ARMElbrus Technologies, an American company founded by a Russian software development team has announced that they are working on a special x86 on ARM emulator that will allow existing Windows software to run on ARM servers and computers without any need to modify, optimize or recode the used program.

  • Linux on ARMThis tutorial is an updated version of this old post, with newer software and less obsolete emulated hardware. - Every year the market produces tons of new products that run on ARM cores, and are able to run operating systems such as Linux. While most of these products are quite expensive (think about smartphones, development kits or evaluation boards) it’s possible to explore the world of Linux on ARM freely, thanks to software emulators like QEMU.

  • Linux on ARMQEMU emulates a full computer system, including a processor and various peripherals. It can be used to provide virtual hosting of several virtual computers on a single computer. QEMU can boot many guest operating systems, including Linux, Solaris, Microsoft Windows, DOS, and BSD; it supports emulating several hardware platforms, including x86, x86-64 (AMD64/Intel 64), ARM, Alpha, ETRAX CRIS, MIPS, MicroBlaze, PowerPC and SPARC.
