  • Linux on ARMHello. We're pleased to announce an alpha release of PyPy 2.0 for ARM. This is mostly a technology preview, as we know the JIT is not yet stable enough for the full release. However please try your stuff on ARM and report back.

  • Linux on ARMIn addition to improved 64-bit ARM support with the Linux 3.10 kernel, ARM architecture support in general will improve a lot with this in-development kernel release.

  • Linux on ARMLinaro Connect Europe 2013 (LCE13) is being held at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin, Ireland on 8-12 July. As we enter this stage in our planning I wanted to remind you to register today!

  • Linux on ARMAlong with an assortment of other power management improvements to land with the Linux 3.10 kernel, a cpufreq driver for ARM's big.LITTLE is being introduced. There's also a cpufreq driver for the Exynos 5440 quad-core and the new AMD frequency sensitivity feedback support.

  • Linux on ARMLinus Torvalds recently released a new version of the Linux kernel -- version 3.9 -- that advances the core of the GNU/Linux operating system with a number of new features. Among other tweaks, the new kernel rolls in new drivers, improves virtualization support, adds new hardware sleep modes, and tweaks file system and storage support.

  • Linux on ARMCHIP DESIGNER ARM has expanded its Development Studio 5 integrated development environment (IDE) to support embedded Linux application development on its processors.
     

  • Linux on ARMWhat: ARM® has extended the scope of the ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5™) Community Edition (CE) to provide a fully featured, industry standard, and free-to-use software development environment for ARM Embedded Linux applications.

  • 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 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 ARMSteve McIntyre and the Linaro Enterprise Group recently analyzed Ubuntu and Fedora software packages to see what software was still relying upon hand-written Assembly code. This was done to see how much real Assembly is being used, to see what the code was used for, and whether it was worth porting to 64-bit ARM / AArch64 / ARMv8.

  • Linux on ARMThe hwmon is a generic Linux kernel subsystem, providing access to hardware monitoring components like temperature or voltage/current sensors. Traditionally interfaced via external buses like I2C, many new SOCs have internal sensors ensuring better accuracy of the result. Version 3.8 of the kernel comes with over 100 drivers for different components. One of the newly added ones is a driver for hardware monitoring subsystem of ARM Versatile Express platforms.

  • Linux on ARMDebian developer working at Collabora. Contributing to the open and free software community. On the board of directors of the Gnome desktop, doing Gstreamer and multimedia work, making multimedia work on set-top-boxes and smart TVs, working on the automobile environment. Building the ARM ports in Debian, optimizing the hard float in Debian, Ubuntu, now everyone is using the ARM hard float.

  • Linux on ARMDevelopers from the member companies involved with Linaro are planning continued improvements to the LLVM compiler infrastructure that will benefit ARM developers and customers. With this ARM LLVM work there should also be Gallium3D LLVMpipe enhancements.

  • Linux on ARMJon Masters runs Red Hat's ARM team, and contributes to the Fedora ARM group also. Red Hat works as a part of the Linaro Enterprise Group, to work on the first generation of ARM Servers.

  • Linux on ARMDr. Leendert van Doorn, Corporate Fellow at AMD, talks about what AMD does with Linaro to optimize Linux on ARM. He talks about the expectations that AMD has for results to come from Linaro in terms of achieving a better and more fully featured Linux world on ARM, especially for the ARM Cortex-A57 ARMv8 processor that AMD has announced for the server market.

  • Linux on ARMSoC development teams worldwide have begun a steady move to a virtual prototype methodology for better accuracy and to accelerate the design process of all kinds of applications. For those of you who aren't familiar with using a virtual prototype, let's start with a definition, then take a look at how an engineer recently used virtual prototyping to boot Linux on the ARM® Cortex™-A15.

  • Linux on ARMWookey talks about his work at Linaro on booting Debian on the ARMv8 64bit platform, and he talks about his work on ARM Powered devices over the last 20 years and on ARM Linux devices since 1999.

  • Linux on ARMThe ARM Linux benchmarks continue. This time around we're looking at how the GCC LTO (Link-Time Optimization) performance fairs when running from a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 Cortex-A9 tablet.

  • Linux on ARMThe latest in our series of ARM Linux benchmarking is looking at the impact of GCC compiler optimizations on the ARM Cortex A15-based Samsung Exynos 5 Dual.
