  • Linux on ARMLanding today in DRM-Next for eventual merging into the Linux 4.5 kernel source tree is the ARM HDLCD driver.

  • Linux on ARMRaspbian is the official Linux distribution of the Raspberry Pi products, and a new version has been released by its developers.

  • Linux on ARMThe Manjaro Linux development team has had the great pleasure of announcing this past weekend that the Arch Linux-based operating system is coming soon to ARM devices.

  • Linux on ARMWe previously knew ODROID-C2 was in development thanks to a document and source code from Amlogic themselves. We did not have the full details at the time, and Amlogic’s document even got the RAM capacity wrong. Hardkernel has finally announced ODROID-C2 development board based on Amlogic S905 will be selling on March 2016 for $40, and released specifications and some photos.

  • Linux on ARMWhile ARM processors don't lack for software development support in the mobile device space, it's a different story when it comes to servers. Software and firmware tools for ARM servers are fragmented, and there's no single go-to package for users to configure and get ARM servers up and running easily.

  • Linux on ARMSoCs becoming more complex, and go beyond homogeneous multicore systems by mixing different type of cores such as high performance cores, low power real-time cores, or even FPGA fabric.

  • Linux on ARMThis tutorial covers some aspects about compiling your own Linux kernel for your ARM device. Most Linux distributions for the PC/x86 platform maintain a Linux kernel which supports a broad range of hardware devices, so it has become very unlikely to compile your own kernel from source. For the ARM platform the Linux kernel is provided by the board or system on chip (SoC) manufacturer. In some cases these kernels include a minimal set of features and device drivers only.

  • Linux on ARMAndroid pretty much own the smartphone market with over 82% market share. Chrome OS is also making a serious dent in the PC market. Despite the dominance of these two Linux based distributions there are many users, including my friend Bryan Lunduke, who want to run 'regular Linux desktops' on tablets.

  • Linux on ARMOn December 10th 2015, Free Electrons engineer Alexandre Belloni gave a half-day seminar on the topic of Porting Linux on an ARM board in Toulouse, France. This seminar covers topics like porting the bootloader, understanding the concept of the Device Tree, writing Linux device drivers and more.

  • Linux on ARMAfter reading the excelent http://intermezzos.github.io/, I felt excited again to work on my small kernel, but I was decided to focus on the ARM arch, since it's been awhile since I bought my Raspberry Pi B+, but never spent some time playing with it. So I started to read more about it on osdev wiki and how to get started with bare metal raspberry development.

  • Linux on ARMI don’t really know how this happened. Again. :( Somehow over and over again these little ARM devices and maker devboards end up on my desk. So what is it this time? Well, look at this beauty because words cannot even begin to describe it:

  • Linux on ARMAs for today, up to the latest Go version 1.5.2 there is no official binary release of the Go runtime available for ARM devices. Maybe you can install it as a package from your operating system, but these packages are almost outdated.

  • Linux on ARMFollowing Monday's NVIDIA Jetson TX1 performance overview one of the first follow-up tests I wanted to carry out was to see how the performance would evolve if using a newer compiler than what's shipped in Ubuntu 14.04. This current long-term support release ships GCC 4.8 while out since then was GCC 4.9 and now GCC 5.2.1 with GCC 6 coming in just a few months.

  • Linux on ARMFreshly returned from the LinuxCon Europe Linus Torvalds, creator of the Linux kernel project, has just published a short continuation of the interview with Dirk Hohndel, Chief Linux and Open Source Technologist at Intel.

  • Linux on ARMTejas Belagod announced this past weekend the release of the third update of the GCC ARM Embedded 4.9 open-source pre-built GNU toolchain from ARM Cortex-M and Cortex-R processors.

  • Linux on ARMThis tutorial shows how to cross-compile the Embedded build of Qt 5.5 for Raspberry Pi 2. The Embedded build does not use the X11 server and instead displays the GUI directly using the Raspberry Pi framebuffer. We will show how to use a Raspberry Pi cross-compiler to build the Qt5 framework for Raspberry Pi on a Windows machine.

  • Linux on ARMWILSONVILLE, Ore., Sept. 16, 2015 – Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) today announced its agreement with AMD to provide comprehensive embedded Linux® tools for AMD 64-bit ARM®-based processors using the Mentor® Embedded Sourcery™ CodeBench Lite offering.

  • Linux on ARMOn September 7, Canonical's John McAleely sent an email to the Ubuntu Touch mailing list, informing all developers and users about his idea of building a 64-bit image of the Ubuntu for phones operating system.

  • Linux on ARMHaoyu Electronics brought us several Allwinner and Rockchip Marsboard in the past few years, and now they’ve released a version based on Texas Instruments AM335x processor, with a form factor and features similar to the Beaglebone Black, but comprised of a baseboard and system-on-module.

  • Linux on ARMWe already knew Hardkernel was working on ODROID-C1+ development board, an update the popular ODROID-C1 board with the same Amlogic S805 processor, storage and memory, but with a standard HDMI port replacing the micro HDMI port, I2S support, better micro SD card and HDMI-CEC support, an micro USB OTG port that can be used to power the board, and an included heatsink. The board is now up for sale for $37, or just $2 more than the original ODROID-C1 board.
