  • Linux on ARMJohn Chiappetta, working for Seneca Centre for Development of Open Technology, has recently announced the release of Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix 18, which will be now known as Pidora 18.

  • Linux on ARMThe efforts by ARM Holdings and its partners to get their low-power chips into the data center is getting a boost with the Red Hat-sponsored Fedora Project deploying a compute cluster based on servers from Boston Ltd. that are powered by Calxeda processors.

  • 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 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 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.

  • Linux on ARMThe Fedora ARM team is pleased to announce the final release of Fedora 18 for ARM processors. Installer images and pre-installed images are now available for download on both ARMv5tel (in the 'arm' directory) and ARMv7hl (in the 'armhfp' directory) ABI formats at the following location:

  • Linux on ARMFedora 18 was officially released this week for x86/x86_64, but the ARM version of Fedora 18 "Spherical Cow" is still under development. Fedora 18 for ARM went into beta last week and since then benchmarks were carried out comparing Spherical Cow on ARM to other popular ARM Linux distributions.

  • Linux on ARMThe Fedora ARM team is pleased to announce that the Fedora 18 Beta release for ARM is now available for download from:
     

  • Linux on ARMRed Hat has announced that they've initiated a new project to bootstrap Fedora on the ARMv8 64-bit low-power architecture.
     

  • Linux on ARMLast month Google and Samsung released the first commercially available product using the ARM® Cortex™-A15 SoC design: the new Series 3 Chromebook. Not only does the Chromebook have the new Samsung Exynos 5250 providing the core compute power, but it also has the new ARM Mali™-T604 providing the power to move all those pixels around.

  • Linux on ARMThe latest ARM Linux benchmarks to share at Phoronix is a comparison of Ubuntu 12.10, Linaro 12.10, Fedora 17, and Arch Linux when running from the dual-core Cortex-A9 OMAP4460-based PandaBoard ES development board.

  • Linux on ARMAnother day, another story about someone figuring out how to turn the $249 Samsung Chromebook into a fully functional laptop with a desktop Linux operating system. This time it's Fedora's turn in the spotlight.

  • Linux on ARMA 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.

  • Linux on ARMHow could the humble Raspberry Pi help get more ARM servers in data centres? Chris Tyler, one of the people behind Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix, shares his thoughts - For over a year, a small group of researchers from Seneca College's Centre for the Development of Open Technology in Toronto has been working to adapt the popular Fedora Linux distribution to run on Raspberry Pi.

  • Linux on ARMUsing the Fedora ARM remix on the raspberry Pi, I couldn't help but noticing how slow it was. I thought it was due to the Pi's weak hardware, but since I accidentally corrupted my root filesystem on the Pi, I decided to try Raspbian for  a change.

  • Linux on ARMThe Baserock™ Slab is a multi-processor server featuring 8 quad-core ARMv7-A CPUs running at 1.33GHz and an on-board high-speed network switch fabric with 5Gbit/s between the CPUs and 2x10Gbit/s external. Each compute node gets additional performance with its own dedicated low-latency mSATA solid state drive.

  • Linux on ARMIf you ever wanted a free mini-PC capable to run a Linux distribution, then the Summer of Hardware event organized by Fedora might be just for you.

  • Linux on ARMWe’ve seen low power ARM-based processors show up in everything from smartphones to set-top-boxes, from tablets to USB thumb drive-sized PCs. Now a company called Kontron is slapping together Mini-ITX computer motherboard featuring an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor.

  • Linux on ARMThe MK802 is a tiny computer that looks like a USB flash drive, and which ships with Google Android 4.0 and sells for around $80 or less. It's designed to be something you can plug into a TV to surf the web, watch video, and play games on the big screen.

  • Linux on ARMThe ARM platform is exploding like a mad wet cat out of the bath. Here are four good distros cram-full of ARM fun. Linux has had ARM support since forever, but it's been bumpy. There are hundreds of vendors of ARM devices (see Tiny Pluggable Linux ARM Computers Are Red-Hot for a sampling), all shoving their own personal hacked code out the door as fast as possible. This made Linux support complicated and unwieldy, to the point that Linus Torvalds threatened to stop accepting ARM changes in the mainline Linux kernel.
