It is finally here! The first point release of the Linux 4.4 LTS kernel series, which was announced by Linus Torvalds on January 10, 2016, arrives today for GNU/Linux distributions that already adopted it.
This 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.
For any NVIDIA Tegra users out there, a ton of exciting support work is finally being mainlined with the Linux 4.5 kernel.
With the Linux 4.5 kernel the ARMv6/ARMv7 platforms are now multi-platform after five years of work. Olof Johansson sent in all of the ARM SoC updates for the Linux 4.5 merge window on Friday night. Most significant is the ARM multi-platform code update.
The Tiny Core developers have been happy to announce the release and immediate availability for download of the Tiny Core piCore 7.0 operating system, a special edition of Tiny Core Linux designed for Raspberry Pi single-board computers.
While the Tegra X1 is the latest and greatest NVIDIA SoC out there currently, the Tegra K1 is still a beauty and still blows many other ARM boards out of the water. If you happen to have a Tegra K1 Chromebook, it's possible to get Fedora 23 Linux running on there with a bit of hacking.
Just a few minutes ago, on January 5, 2016, Canonical published several Ubuntu Security Notices to inform Ubuntu users about the availability of new Linux kernel versions for their operating systems.
A new Ubuntu MATE image for RP2 has been released - A new and refreshed Ubuntu MATE 15.10.1 image has been released for the Raspberry Pi 2 platform, bringing a number of changes and improvements.
Immediately after announcing the availability of new kernel updates for all supported Ubuntu OSes, Canonical published another Ubuntu security notice to inform users about the release of another patch for the Linux kernel packages of Ubuntu 15.10 for Raspberry Pi 2.
Immediately after informing GNU/Linux users about the release of Linux kernel 4.3.1, Linux kernel 4.2.7, and Linux kernel 4.1.14 LTS, Greg Kroah-Hartman published details about the fifty-eighth maintenance version of the long-term supported Linux 3.14 kernel.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.3.1 and Linux kernel 4.2.7, renowned kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman had the pleasure of releasing the fourteen maintenance build of the long-term supported Linux 4.1 kernel.
Immediately after announcing the release of the first maintenance build of Linux kernel 4.3, renowned Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman published details about the seventh point release of Linux kernel 4.2.
Just a few minutes ago, December 9, Linux kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman announced the immediate availability for download of the first maintenance release of Linux kernel 4.3.
A few minutes ago, Greg Kroah-Hartman informed users about the immediate availability for download of new kernel maintenance releases, Linux kernel 4.1.13 LTS, Linux kernel 4.2.6, Linux kernel 3.14.57 LTS, and Linux kernel 3.10.93 LTS.
So it *felt* like the last week of the rc series was busy, to the point where I got a bit worried about the release. But doing the actual numbers shows that that really was just my subjective feeling, probably due to the kernel summit and travel back home from Korea. It wasn’t actually a particularly busy week, it’s just that the pull requests were more noticeable in the last couple of days.
After announcing the immediate availability for download of Linux kernel 4.2.4, Linux kernel 4.1.11 LTS, and Linux kernel 3.14.55 LTS, Greg Kroah-Hartman has had the great pleasure of releasing a new maintenance version of Linux kernel 3.10 LTS.
After announcing the release of Linux kernel 4.2.4, which is currently the most advanced stable kernel version available, Greg Kroah-Hartman informs us about the immediate availability for download of the eleventh maintenance release of the long-term supported Linux 4.1 kernel series.
Jiri Slaby, the maintainer of the long-term supported Linux 3.12 kernel series, has just announced the release and immediate availability for download of the forty-ninth maintenance version of the Linux 3.12 LTS kernel.
After announcing the release of the Linux kernel 3.14.54 LTS on the first day of October, developer Greg Kroah-Hartman comes now with news about the ninetieth maintenance version of the long-term supported Linux 3.10 kernel branch.
Earlier today, October 1, renowned kernel developer Greg Kroah-Hartman announced the release of two new kernel versions, Linux kernel 3.10.90 LTS and Linux kernel 3.14.54 LTS.
