  • Linux on ARMIt appears that Samsung is preparing to open-source some code pertaining to their Exynos ARM SoC. At an event this weekend (YouTube stream), Samsung said they will open-source the kernel and platform components of their Exynos SoC. This new code is said to be dual-licensed under the GPLv2 and Apache 2.0 licenses.

  • Linux on ARMThe Nexus 7 tablet may be Google's flagship Android tablet. But it has a bootloader that can be unlocked, a powerful 1.2 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. In other words, it should be perfectly capable of running other operating systems.

  • Linux on ARMDevelopers from ARM Holdings have published their initial ARMv8 patch for the GNU Compiler Collection for the 32-bit "AArch32" compiler port.
     

  • Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.7 kernel introduces support for 64-bit ARM, a.k.a. AArch64. In further enabling 64-bit ARM support under Linux, the GCC Steering Committee has now officially accepted the AArch64 port of the GNU Compiler Collection. 64-bit ARM now has a compiler!

  • Linux on ARMLinus Torvalds announced yesterday, October 14th, the immediate availability for download of the first released candidate for the Linux 3.7 kernel series. Linux kernel 3.7 RC1 comes with a lot of new features, according to Linus Torvalds. Among the listed changes, we find that now the "uapi" includes file cleanups.

  • Linux on ARMA single Linux kernel build that can run on various ARM-powered kit from competing manufacturers has come closer to reality, much to Linus Torvalds' relief.
     

  • Linux on ARMLast weekend Linus Torvalds pulled the Xen on ARM patches in his Linux tree, so as of Saturday the 7th of October, we have Xen ARM in upstream Linux! This makes Xen the first hypervisor supported by Linux on the ARM platform!

  • Linux on ARMTakeaway: With the Linux 3.7 kernel some major changes are in order. In particular, the support for ARM technology has arrived. Jack Wallen pontificates on what this could mean for the open source platform on multiple levels.

  • Linux on ARMFreeBSD developers are still working on bringing up ARM hardware support for various platforms so that it's in a similar state to Linux.
     

  • Linux on ARMARM processors and Linux have been married for years. You name an ARM-based device - smartphones, Raspberry Pi, tablets - and you'll find Linux running beside it. It's not been a happy marriage though. For every ARM system on a chip (SoC) there had to be a different Linux spin. With the forthcoming Linux 3.7 kernel we're on our way to seeing all ARM processors working with a single Linux kernel.

  • Linux on ARMA recent code commit has revealed an interesting feature in the upcoming Linux kernel 3.7 that will allow it to support multiple ARM platforms out of the box. This brings ARM more in line with x86 builds where multiple processors are supported on a single kernel build.

  • Linux on ARMShows how games controller and robotic arm can be hooked up to Linux based ARM board - SAN FRANCISCO: ENTERPRISE VENDOR Oracle demonstrated Java SE for embedded devices running on the Raspberry Pi bare bones computer at the Java One show on Wednesday, with the aim of encouraging developers to try it out for themselves to create reference libraries for the target school children audience.

  • Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.7 kernel gets even more exciting with the merging of ARM multi-platform support. This work allows for a single Linux kernel build to contain support for multiple ARM SoCs/platforms.

  • Linux on ARMAfter 11 months of grueling work, openSUSE is pleased to announce the first Release Candidate for openSUSE 12.2 on the ARM architecture. After discussing ARM first at the openSUSE Conference in 2011, the openSUSE ARM team has managed to bring up openSUSE from nowhere to being a truly usable and functional distribution on the ARM version 7 architecture in time for the new openSUSE Conference in Prague next month!

  • Linux on ARMThe Linux 3.7 kernel will feature support for the ARM 64-bit architecture (ARM64), which is officially known as AArch64.
     

  • Linux on ARMXen virtualization support for the ARM architecture is now set to be pulled for the Linux 3.7 kernel. With the Linux 3.7 kernel merge window now open following the Linux 3.6 kernel release, it looks like the ARM Xen virtualization support will finally land.

  • Linux on ARMWe have initial support available for the ODROID-X platform, which uses the Samsung Exynos4412 ARM Cortex-A9 Quad Core CPU. The device also sports 1GB of RAM, 6 USB ports, HDMI and LVDS displays, and a 50-pin expansion port for standard wire interfaces. Graphics are powered by a MALI 400 GPU, with drivers expected in October 2012 for accelerated graphics.

  • Linux on ARMThe organisers of the Linux Plumbers Conference (LPC) 2012, which was held at the end of August in San Diego, have released videos, notes and presentation slidesfrom the conference presentations. The talks are primarily concerned with Linux software that deals with the interaction between hardware and the user interface.

  • Linux on ARMThere was a time when x86 was the only major chip architecture that Linux vendor Red Hat cared about. That time has now come to an end as the Linux giant is now taking a serious look at ARM.

  • Linux on ARMIt's not even Friday yet, but there's more awkward entertainment today at the expense of Linux kernel trolls. The latest in the series of weird messages hitting the Linux kernel mailing list is a proposal to drop support for all CPU architectures but ARM and a new "invisible" file-system feature.
