Linux ARM video

  • Linux on ARMThe Spark tablet is a 7 inch tablet that will ship with Linux and the KDE Plasma Active user interface. It’s expected to ship in May for about $265, and it should go up for pre-order soon. KDE developer Aaron Seigo has posted a first video of  Plasma Active running on the tablet. It seems to respond well to touch, and the animated effects look pretty smooth — although there appears to be a little lag in some activities.

  • Linux on ARMThe initial code push has taken place for the Lima Project, which is the open-source ARM Mali graphics driver that's under development. The Lima stack development is sponsored by Codethink and its lead developer is veteran X.Org developer Luc Verhaegen. Phoronix was the first to break the news on the project last month.

  • Linux on ARMEnergy Micro and Pengutronix today announced that they will be demonstrating µClinux for the ARM Cortex-M3. This embedded Linux will be running on the energy friendly EFM32 Gecko range of microcontrollers at this year's Embedded World Show.

  • Linux on ARMBeing a tablet, it makes a lot more sense to run Ubuntu on the ASUS Tranformer Prime than on a smartphone. Of course, that hasn’t stopped people from porting the popular Linux distro to the HTC Desire, for example, and for the old Windows Mobile devices, getting Ubuntu to work was a stepping stone for Android ports – a process probably best illustrated with the HTC HD2.

  • Linux on ARMDavid Mandala of Canonical talked last week at Linux.Conf.Au 2012 about the history of Ubuntu Linux supporting the ARM architecture, what's coming up for Ubuntu ARM in the 12.04 LTS release, and even what's expected from Ubuntu on ARM as far out as 2015.

  • Linux on ARMModern computers aren’t just a lot faster than the PCs you probably used ten or fifteen years ago — they also use a lot less power. But most computers designed to run desktop operating systems still use enough energy that they can’t, say, run directly off the power generated by a small solar panel.

  • Linux on ARMWhen I talked to Linus Torvalds he said that Secure Boot is a good thing, but can be used in a bad ways. That's proving to be true.

  • Linux on ARMThe QOOQ French Digital Cookbook is a tablet designed for use in the kitchen. It has a water-resistant design and a case that can be wiped clean with a cloth if you get water, oil, or other food on the screen while looking up a recipe.

  • Linux on ARMAt CES 2012, semiconductor company Marvell has shown up at the center of two major projects that shifted from x86-based systems to ARM-based systems. In both cases, it has also been a project that Intel had withdrawn from: Google TV, and One Laptop Per Child.

  • Linux on ARMLAS VEGAS--$399. Linux. Designed for the kitchen. The Qooq is one of the weirdest tablet computers we have seen in a while. It's selling respectably well in France, we are told, and it's coming to the United States soon.

  • Linux on ARMBarnes & Noble might be doing everything that stands in its power to limit the number of applications that you can run on your Nook Tablet, but hackers will always find a way to run their software on the device if they want to.

  • Linux on ARMEarly this year we got to see, through ARM-powered devices such as the Motorola Atrix, that it doesn't take even a netbook to run basic computing functions. At a live demonstration in New York City, FXI Technologies showed off the next evolution of that idea: an ARM-based computer on a USB stick without any of that extra smartphone or tablet baggage.

  • Linux on ARMThe Cotton Candy is a USB stick sized compute device allows users a single, secure point of access to all personal cloud services and apps through their favorite operating system, while delivering a consistent experience on any screen. The device will serve as a companion to smartphones, tablets, and notebook PC and Macs, as well add smart capabilities to existing displays, TVs, set top boxes and other media that supports USB mass storage.

  • Linux on ARMBy Andrea Gallo, ST-Ericsson, Chief Linux Architect in the Smartphone and Tablet Solution organization. - Last March, the ARM Linux community got shaken by the complaints by Linus Torvalds for its lack of proper structure and organisation. This is totally true and mainly due to the large number of different SoC vendors, each one integrating the ARM IP's in a slightly different variant.

  • Linux on ARMToday even smaller companies run a complex IT infrastructure consisting of many interdependent services. The risk grows to damage the whole company by just crashing a single IT service. We address this scenario by a combination of virtualization and high availability in a cluster structure.

  • Linux on ARMLast March, the ARM Linux community got shaken by the complaints by Linus Torvalds for its lack of proper structure and organisation. This is totally true and mainly due to the large number of different SoC vendors, each one integrating the ARM IP's in a slightly different variant. Linaro immediately accepted the challenge to drive the kernel alignment of the ARM community and most ARM Linux experts got together and agreed on the way forward as early as May 2011 at the Developers' summit in Budapest.

  • Linux on ARMThis talk highlights the effort, subtleties and details involved in creating a common Power Management (PM) framework for ARM SMP Linux kernel. Since different ARM System on Chips (SoCs) are implementing PM management hardware in custom ways, the kernel has to adapt the PM framework to HW needs.

  • Linux on ARMThis is a very early build (mostly a proof of concept) of Bodhi Linux for ARM running in a Debian Squeeze chroot on the Nokia N900. It is far from done, but that will change in the coming months. You can see from this video though the base functionality is there and the OS is snappy. Bodhi Linux is a minimalistic Linux distribution that utilizes the Enlightenment Desktop.

  • Linux on ARMEarlier this year British games pioneer David Braben surprised many people with the first appearance of the Raspberry Pi, a low-cost, open source computer aimed at children that he was helping to develop.

  • Linux on ARMBeagleBone, a miniature motherboard based on the ARM architecture, that will costs around $89 USD (65 EUR), has just been announced. BeagleBone is designed be installed in the BeagleBoard, a low-cost, fan-less single-board computer based on low-power Texas Instruments processors featuring the ARM Cortex-A series core.
