  • Linux on ARMThe Zealz GK802 looks a bit like a long, over-wide USB pen drive. Under a removable clip at one end of the stick is a male HDMI connector ready to be plugged directly into a monitor or large TV. On the other end of the stick are two USB ports: a micro USB to supply power to the GK802 and a female USB connector to let you attach peripherals like a keyboard, mouse or hub. Being a small, contained stick with an HDMI connector the obvious use for the GK802 is consuming video media.

  • Linux on ARMWe’ve had Ubuntu support on i.MX6 HDMI dongles, specifically HiApad Hi802 and Zealz GK802, for a little while, but for those who prefer Debian distribution, a Debian installer is now available thanks to Angus Gratton.

  • Linux on ARMAbout 2 weeks ago, Jasbir released an Ubuntu 11.10 image and installation instructions for GK802 and Hi802mini PCs based on Freescale i.MX6. I could only find time to give it try yesterday and today. I'll provide the steps I followed to install the image, and my quick first impressions of the stability and performance of this image.

  • Linux on ARMThe Zealz GK802 is a small device that you can plug into a TV to run Android apps on a big screen. It's a $94 device that features a Freescale i.MX6 quad-core processor and Android 4.0 software.

  • Linux on ARMCanonical has released tools for installing a developer preview version of Ubuntu 13.04 Touch on the latest Google Nexus phones and tablet.
     

  • Linux on ARMARM, ARM and ARM. Everybody is using it - knowing or not knowing. So I decided to write a small tutorial about installing Slackware ARM in Qemu. For this tutorial I expect a few things:
     

  • Linux on ARMThe following tutorial will teach all users of the Ubuntu Linux operating system how to install their beloved distribution on the popular Nexus 7 tablet from Google and ASUS.
     

  • Linux on ARMThe Zealz GK802 is a little device about the size of a chunky USB flash drive. But unlike a flash drive, the GK802 is a fully functional little computer with a quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It ships with Google Android software, but it can also run Ubuntu and other Linux-based operating systems.

  • Linux on ARMAccording to ZDnet, “Amazon’s top selling laptop doesn’t run Windows or Mac OS, it runs Linux”. And that top selling device is the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook. Billed as an ideal second computer just aiming to make it simple to access online services, without the hassle and risk of running another full Windows machine.

  • Linux on ARMIf you were hoping you would be able to run your favorite Linux distribution on Microsoft's new Surface Tablet, it doesn't look like it will be an easy task to accomplish. After going through the state of Linux distributions handling SecureBoot, UEFI-guru Matthew Garrett confirmed via his blog that Linux on the Microsoft Surface is likely a lemon.

  • Linux on ARMBodhi Linux is a lightweight and 'eye candy' Linux distro that features the Enlightenment desktop and applications. Jeff Hoogland, one of the key developers of this project has recently released images that you can use to install Bodhi Linux in your ARM based Chromebook. Note Bodhi Linux has a ARM CPU port, this post is aimed at installing Bodhi Linux specially in Chromebooks.

  • Android-x86James 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.

  • 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 MK802 $74 mini PC ships with Google Android 4.0. It also ships with root access enabled, which means it’s possible to delete important system files or make other changes that could leave you with a less-than-useful operating system.

  • Linux on ARMIn anticipation of the arrival of my Raspberry pi I decided that I could wait no longer and decided to have a look at one of the Raspberry pi OS's. Due to the Raspberry pi having an arm processor, running the Raspberry pi Fedora remix within virtualbox would not be possible.

  • Linux on ARMArch Linux ARM is a distribution of Linux for ARM computers. We are aimed at ARMv5 platforms like plug computers, OXNAS-based ARMv6 PogoPlugs, Cortex-A8 platforms such as the BeagleBoard, and Cortex-A9 and Tegra platforms like the PandaBoard and TrimSlice. However, it can run on any device that supports ARMv5te or ARMv7 instruction sets. Our collaboration with Arch Linux brings users the best platform, newest packages, and installation support.

  • Linux on ARMAndroid phones have undergone a transformation over the last few years. Unlike other platforms that often seem reluctant to change, Android phones have only gotten bigger and faster, squeezing even more awesomeness into every cubic centimeter of each passing new generation. Along for the ride are other fun things such as allowing Android users to run software that isn't actually Android.

  • Linux on ARMThe HP TouchPad is capable of running a number of different operating systems. It ships with HP webOS software, but we’ve also seen Google Android and a number of Linux-based operating systems ported to run on the 9.7 inch tablet.

  • Linux on ARMAs we are all aware, Android relies on the Linux kernel for its core services and to act as an abstraction layer between hardware drivers and the rest of the software stack. However, some of us aren’t content until we have a full Gnome interface and a cache of staple apps suck as Firefox, Thunderbird, and Open Office at our disposal. We’ve covered a couple of ways to load the popular Ubuntu in the past. However neither way was quite as hands-off as some users would like.

  • Linux on ARMNOOK Tablet hackers have added a few new tools to their arsenal this weekend. Developer Cobroto has put together one of the first custom ROMs for the tablet, while developer AdamOutler has put together a rather impressive tool based on Ubuntu Linux which you can use to reformat the NOOK Tablet and roll back from OS 1.4.1 or later to NOOK Tablet OS 1.4.0.
