The Linaro 12.11 release cycle highlights the hard work of all the Linaro Teams – Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams – who have provide all the updates and new features that are integrated on top of our platforms during this development cycle. The 12.11 release is another example of how Linaro works together with its members, partners and community to continue to build the future of Linux on ARM.
James Bottomley wrote a new blog post this morning about why the Linux Foundation really isn't concerned about UEFI SecureBoot on ARM hardware (smart-phones, tablets, etc) compared to the work they are doing on x86 PCs with UEFI SecureBoot support for Linux.
Hanging out with Zach Pfeffer, Android lead at http://linaro.org, they are working to optimize Linux on ARM.
Due to there being much interest in the ARM Cortex A15 benchmarks on Linux, namely with the Samsung Chromebook and its Samsung Exynos 5 Dual, here's a weekend special providing some GCC compiler benchmarks of this new ARM chip.
Red Hat has announced that they've initiated a new project to bootstrap Fedora on the ARMv8 64-bit low-power architecture.
The Arndale Board is a dual-core ARMv7 development board built around the Exynos 5 Dual SoC, which features the new ARM Cortex-A15. As shown in yesterday's Samsung Chromebook benchmarks on Linux, the Exynos 5 Dual packs very good performance for being a low-power ARM chip.
ARM's AArch64 back-end for LLVM to handle the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture is working, but there's still more work ahead of the hardware's general availability in about one year's time.
How to work with SAP on cheap 7’’ $100 Chinese Android tablet? With the ability to boot linux from SD card without any change of existing firmware settings? In this case, you are not limited to simple mobile applications but the tablet becomes an almost full replacement of the x86 notebook including support for applications such as SAPGUI for Java.
Rockchip's RK3066 chip is a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with clock speeds up to 1.6 GHz. The processor is popular with Chinese tablet makers, and a growing number of USB thumb drive-sized mini computers and TV dongles (such as the UG802 and MK802 III) use the RK3066 processor.
At the end of last year, ARM announced ARMv8, the first ARM 64-bit ARM archtecture, and last week at ARM Techcon 2012, ARM announced the first ARMv8 cores: Cortex A53 and A57. But since there’s no silicon at the moment, what if you wanted to develop code running on ARMv8 before the hardware is available?
AMD, AppliedMicro, Calxeda, Canonical, Cavium, Facebook, HP, Marvell and Red Hat join existing Linaro members ARM, HiSilicon, Samsung and ST-Ericsson to form new group focused on accelerating Linux development for ARM servers
A few minutes ago, November 1st, the Fedora development team proudly announced the immediate availability for download of the first Alpha version of the upcoming Fedora 18 operating system for the ARM architecture.
With Ubuntu 13.04 there will likely be an AArch64 (64-bit ARM) spin of the popular Linux distribution.
Another 6 months, another Ubuntu Developer Summit event for Canonical, where Mark Shuttleworth is always present and keeps his audience captivated. Yes, we're talking about the Ubuntu Developer Summit (UDS) event for the upcoming Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) operating system, which takes place these days, between October 29th and November 1st, in Copenhagen, Denmark.
It’s no secret that you can run Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, or other Linux-based software on the new $249 Samsung Chromebook. But now one of the first operating systems designed specifically for the ARM-based laptop is available… or at least an early build is available.
Hot on the heels of the news that the Google Chromebook runs openSUSE (even made slashdot) and following the closing of the openSUSE Conference in Prague, Dirk Müller let the ARM team knowthat RC2 is about ready to go and this will be the final before the release of openSUSE for ARM! Read on to find out some details of this exciting release.
Consumer electronics leader LG Electronics and Linaro, the not-for-profit engineering organization develop-ing open source soft-ware for the ARM architecture, today announced that LG will join Linaro to cooperate on new ARM technologies.
Within the forthcoming Linux 3.7 kernel there is support for Xen virtualization support on ARM when using a Cortex-A15 SoC. While not yet merged to mainline, KVM virtualization support for the ARM architecture is also coming about.
Red Hat developers are porting OpenJDK to ARMv8, the 64-bit ARM architecture (also known as A64). According to a blog postby Andrew Haley of Red Hat, the development is taking place because "the current OpenJDK ARM situation is rather unsatisfactory, and we want to do better with A64".
While the ultimate future of Texas Instruments' OMAP division remains uncertain, their software engineers continue to work on maturing the OMAP5 Linux support.
