  • Linux on ARMHere at Miniand we have been hard at work getting Linux images working on the MK802, and we have just successfully built Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Lubuntu images. The current version of the images support Wifi and OpenGL, and the lightweight versions Lubuntu and Xubuntu run quite well.

  • 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 ARMHere's an update on the LLVM/Clang vs. GCC compiler benchmarking on ARM hardware under Linux. Last month on Phoronix I shared a few basic benchmarks of GCC vs. LLVM/Clang Compilers On ARMv7 Linux. GCC 4.6.3 on Ubuntu 12.04 was doing much better than LLVM/Clang 3.0 from the Precise repository.

  • Linux on ARMIt's quite easy these days to build a many-core compute cluster that is low-powered, running Linux, and performant-friendly. Here's a small cluster build that's begun at Phoronix and has twelve 1.2GHz cores while the total system power consumption under load is just about 30 Watts.

  • Linux on ARMWhile Ubuntu 12.04 already did a very good job at enhancing the ARM performance, Ubuntu 12.10 already has a number of performance improvements for ARM devices. With Ubuntu 12.04 for ARM there were performance improvements thanks to switching to ARM hardfp binaries by default rather than the soft floating-point version.

  • Linux on ARMTaipei, Taiwan, June 5th, 2012 – Leading ICT manufacturing company MiTAC International Corp. (MiTAC) is pleased to announce the first product in its new range of ARM processor-based Servers. Working alongside ARM, Marvell and Canonical, the new server is able to provide peak performance with outstanding power efficiency and optimized for today's emerging class of cloud-based server application.

  • Linux on ARMThis is the unveiling of the MiTAC GFX ARM Powered Server at Computex 2012 during the 25-minute keynote presentation by Ian Ferguson, Director of Server Systems and Ecosystem at ARM and Mark Shuttleworth, leader of the Ubuntu Project.

  • Linux on ARMDell is working closely with Canonical (promoter of Ubuntu Linux) and Cloudera (a Hadoopadvocate) to prepare its next-generation ARM servers for so-called "hyperscale" customer environments. Though not available for purchase yet, ARM-based servers from Dell and other PC makers sound promising. The big question: Where is Microsoft and Windows Server amid the expanding ARM-based server discussion?

  • Linux on ARMHave you been wondering if your Web application will work with the new generation of Hyperdense ARM Servers? Now you can easily find out by using Ubuntu and Amazon Web Services. For over 4 years, Canonical has been supporting Linux on ARM. Ubuntu Server 12.04 is our first Long Term Support on ARM.

  • Linux on ARMCalxeda has shown off a low-power ARM-based server running Ubuntu 12.04, a significant move that ratchets up competition in the chip industry. The Texas-based server designer demonstrated the technology at the Ubuntu Developer and Cloud Summit in Oakland, California on Monday.

  • Linux on ARMEarlier in the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS "Precise Pangolin" development cycle I noted some performance improvements happening on the ARM side, particularly for Texas Instruments OMAP4. Namely, Ubuntu 12.04 was ARMing up for better performance with ARM hard-float support and the performance becoming more compelling for the PandaBoard ES hardware with proper cpufreq support. In this article is a comparison of the Ubuntu 11.10 and Ubuntu 12.04 ARM performance.

  • Linux on ARMWe are pleased to announce the release of Linaro 12.04. The Linaro 12.04 release highlights the precision, expertise and talent which all of the Linaro Teams – Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams – use to deliver influential updates and stimulating new features that are integrated on top of Android and Ubuntu.

  • Linux on ARMThere's been a great deal of excitement this year about tiny, cheap computers such as Cotton Candy and Raspberry Pi, and no wonder: Linux-powered devices like these are nothing short of a computing revolution, both for the way they make technology more accessible to those who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford it, and for lowering the cost of innovation and experimentation for everyone.

  • Linux on ARMYesterday I installed Ubuntu 12.04 ‘Precise’ Beta 1 in Virtual Box to give it a try (I could not manage to have HUD working btw), and today, I’ve noticed an article entitled “Ubuntu 12.04 ‘precise’ and cross compilation of ARM kernels” explaining how to build Linaro ARM kernel in Ubuntu 12.04. So I’ve decided to give it a try, especially it seems straightforward.

  • Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi folks have been getting a lot of attention for their $35 PC with an ARM-based processor and support for some open source software. But as the cost of computer components continues to drop, the Raspberry Pi is hardly the only inexpensive PC capable of running Linux.

  • Linux on ARMArchos may not have released Android 4.0 for its Gen8 line of tablets from 2010. But that doesn’t mean you can’t run an up-to-date operating system on the Archos 43 or Archos 101 Gen8.

  • Linux on ARMHere are the first set of Phoronix.com benchmarks of the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3. Needless to say, four Cortex-A9s combined with NVIDIA graphics leads to a fairly fast ARMv7 experience when running Ubuntu Linux.

  • Linux on ARMLast month, I wrote the instructions to Cross-compile VMWare View for ARM Linux as I intended to "run" Windows 8 in an ARM client (most likely the Raspberry Pi) via PCoIP. However, the procedure to do so seems slightly complicated and requires to purchase a specific VMWare server software (VMware vSphere 5) or download a free trial.

  • Linux on ARMCanonical announced on March 6th, in a security notice, that a new Linux OMAP4 kernel update for its Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) operating system is now available, fixing six security vulnerabilities discovered in the Linux kernel packages by various developers.

  • Linux on ARMUndoubtedly the vast majority of us are excited about the prospect of running Ubuntu on our handsets. In fact, we’ve covered several methods for users to get a mobile taste of the popular Linux distribution in the past. However, none of these are as simple or powerful as what Canonical wishes to accomplish.
