  • Linux on ARMWe are happy to announce our first ARM port and support for RaspBerry Pi. Many thanks to the XBMC Team member Edgar (gimli) Hucek and the whole XBMC dev team for supporting us with this!This is our first ARM build and is early days but it spells yet another suite of current and future hardware that OpenELEC will support. In the future you can expect to see more and more capable ARM based hardware at low cost coming onto the market and OpenELEC will be with you all the way to integrate these devices into your home.

  • Linux on ARMThe Spark tablet will be the first 7 inch tablet to ship with Mer Linux and KDE Plasma Active software when it launches in May. It’s already available for pre-order in Europe for €200, and developer Aaron Seigo who started the project says when it goes on sale in the US the Spark tablet will likely be even cheaper due to lower taxes in the States.

  • Linux on ARMEnergy Micro and Pengutronix today announced that they will be demonstrating µClinux for the ARM Cortex-M3. This embedded Linux will be running on the energy friendly EFM32 Gecko range of microcontrollers at this year's Embedded World Show.

  • Linux on ARMEver since the news broke last weekend that a fully open tablet is on the way, the excitement has been tangible in the Linux community. I wrote about the tablet on Monday, but since then KDE developer Aaron Seigo has revealed a number of new details. There's plenty of good news to share, including the fact that you can preorder one as early as next week; the main bad news as far as I can see is that you'll have to wait until May to actually get the thing.

  • Linux on ARMThe Spark is a 7 inch tablet with an open source Linux-based operating system and an open platform for apps, eBooks, and other digital content. One of the developers of the Spark project introduced the tablet last week, and now he’s posted a Q&A with far more details – including launch details.

  • Linux on ARMOpen-source software and Linux, thanks to Android, is well represented on tablets. But, if you didn’t want to deal with proprietary firmware and software, you were out of luck… until now. Aaron Seigo, one of the KDE’s lead developers, and his team are just about ready to roll-out the first tablet based entirely on Linux and free software: The Spark.

  • Linux on ARMA new tablet called the Spark is on the way. At first glance it looks like most of the cheap Chinese tablets we’ve seen in the past few years, but the Spark won’t run Google Android. Instead it will run an open source Linux-based operating system with the KDE Plasma Active interface running on top.

  • Linux on ARMPHYTEC’s production-ready phyCORE-OMAP4430 and Linux BSP provide a core foundation so that developers do not have to design an OMAP4 based embedded application from the ground up.

  • Linux on ARMThe OpenPandora project is an open source project to create a handheld gaming console using open source designs and open source software. The Pandora has an ARM-based processor, Linux-based operating system, and support for a wide range of game console emulators along with a QWERTY thumb keyboard and dual analog game controllers.

  • Linux on ARMRaspberry Pi has just announced the release of a fork a linux kernel 3.1.9. The source code with patches is available at https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux. If you just want to download the patch, I’ve created one: r-pi_linux_3.1.9.patch.gz

  • Linux on ARMMuch to my fiancée's dismay my little Genesi Smartbook has been occupying much of my time of the late. In fact, just six days ago I posted about how to get an early build of a Bodhi ARM file system for the Smartbook.

  • Linux on ARMHere it is, the promised DoudouLinux for Genesi Efika SmartBooks! It's a 4GB SD card image, ready to boot a DoudouLinux system built on top of Debian ARM™ Squeeze (armel flavour). This is a multi-language version of DoudouLinux (US English/French):

  • Linux on ARMSlackware ARM (“ARMedslack”) is the official port of the Slackware® Linux distribution to the ARM architecture. Currently, the project focuses its efforts on supporting the most popular devices such as the Plug Computers, and can also be used under the QEMU emulator. Support for other devices will be added over time.

  • Linux on ARMAndrew Wafaa is hoping to make openSUSE the Linux distribution of choice for the growing number of ARM-powered devices out there, but the project has run into a snag: a lack of ARM hardware. Like many open source projects, openSUSE has corporate sponsorship in the form of a partnership with Attachmate subsidiary SUSE - once part of Novell - which takes the open source openSUSE technology and bundles it with support contracts in a commercial format.

  • Linux on ARMThe ARM chip architecture is emerging to become an extremely popular one for embedded and mobile devices. It's also an architecture that has had some issues when it comes to Linux. Speaking at the LinuxCon conference this week, Linux creator Linus Torvalds detailed his frustrations with ARM. Coincidentally this week, Canonical, the lead commercial sponsor behind Ubuntu Linux, announced ARM support as part of the upcoming Ubuntu 11.10 release.
