  • Fedora 20 “Heisenbug” Release Makes ARM a Primary Architecture

    Linux on ARMFedora has been supporting ARM architecture for a while now, but it was only as a secondary architecture without official support. With the recent Fedora 20 release, nicknamed “Heisenbug”, the ARM architecture, more exactly ARMv7 hard float and greater, is promoted to a primary architecture meaning ARMv7 will have the same status as x86 and x86_64 architectures with packages officially build and supported by the Fedora community.

  • Is Assembly Still Relevant To Most Linux Software?

    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.

  • Spotlight on the Linux Software Ecosystem - The Fedora Project

    Linux on ARMAs many may know, the Linux operating system has many variations. These are more commonly referred to as Linux distributions or distros, and choosing a distribution to use can be a quagmire. I won't be telling people what distribution to use as each of them have their pros and cons, what I will do is highlight some of the distros that are active in the ARM ecosystem. In the first of my "Spotlight on the Linux software Ecosystem" I am going to cover the Fedora Project.
