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.

  • $70 ARM PC Can Run Android and Ubuntu Linux

    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.

  • Cross-compiling the ARM Linux Kernel in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    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.

  • Mele A1000 is a $70 hackable, Linux-friendly ARM-based PC

    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.

  • Ubuntu 11.10 ported to Archos Gen8 tablets

    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.

  • NVIDIA Tegra 3 Makes For Fast Ubuntu On ARM

    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.

  • Cross-compiling FreeRDP Windows Remote Desktop Client for ARM Linux (in Debian/Ubuntu)

    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.

  • OMAP4 Kernel Vulnerabilities Fixed for Ubuntu 11.04

    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.

  • A Quick Look at Ubuntu for Android at MWC – XDATV

    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.

  • Linux Desktop Experience with ARM and MIPS

    Linux on ARMThe Linux experience for many of our readers most likely starts with an x86 hardware platform. However, desktop solutions exist for other platforms, like ARM and MIPS. When Linus Torvalds' practice with Minix led to Linux, the main development platform was a PC with the i386 architecture. Three years later, in 1994, he was asked to help Digital (DEC, or just Digital Equipment Corporation) port Linux onto the Alpha platform.

  • OpenJDK 6 ARM Vulnerabilities Fixed for Ubuntu OSes

    Linux on ARMNine security vulnerabilities that were discovered in the OpenJDK 6 packages by various developers, this time affecting the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx), Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat), and Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal), were announced by Canonical.

  • Ubuntu for Android: more details and prototype hands-on (video)

    Linux on ARMCanonical's announcement of Ubuntu for Android kicked up quite a stir, but it also left us with a few unknowns. The idea is that your phone becomes a mobile PC, switching from Android into full desktop Ubuntu mode when you dock it to a bigger display, keyboard and mouse. But just how well does it perform? When is it coming? How is it coming? And will tinkerers be able to install it for themselves?

  • Ubuntu for Android at Mobile World Congress

    Linux on ARMThere's been quite a bit of buzz since the announcement of Ubuntu for Android, and there's quite a bit of buzz in Hall 7 here at Mobile World Congress. That's where Canonical is showing off just what Ubuntu can do when paired to a dual-core smartphone, and it remains every bit impressive as when we got our preview a week ago.

  • Ubuntu on ARM: Improvements and Optimizations Done by Linaro

    Linux on ARMRicardo Salveti de Araujo, from Linaro, displays the improvements Linaro have added to Ubuntu on ARM. Ubuntu on ARM: Improvements and Optimizations Done by Linaro Since Linaro's start, there was a need to have a supported platform for ARM, that could use the Linaro changes, to improve the ARM experience in general and to show the results of the work done by Linaro.

  • Closer to Perfection–Ubuntu 11.10 Running Natively on HP Touchpad

    Linux on ARMUbuntu and the infamous HP Touchpad.  For those of you around the HPT scene, you know that this is likely a comparable device to the HD2 in terms of flexibility. The device runs WebOS natively, Android (all the way to ICS thanks to the good people at the Cyanogen team), and as of October of last year, Ubuntu.

  • Ubuntu for Android brings a desktop OS to Android smartphones

    Linux on ARMYou know how people like to say that today’s smartphones are more powerful than the computers that NASA used to send astronauts to the moon in the ’60s? Well, that’s not saying much, because those early computers were small potatoes.

  • ARM On Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Battling Intel x86?

    Linux on ARMIn recent weeks I have shown how Ubuntu 12.04 is ARM-ing up for better performance on the ARMv7 architecture by enabling hard-float builds and how the TI OMAP4 support has come together resulting in significant performance gains. Nevertheless, how is modern ARM hardware now comparing to the low-end Intel x86 competition? In this article are some results from Ubuntu 12.04 comparing the ARM performance to some Intel Core, Pentium, and Atom hardware.

  • Cross-compiling VMWare View for ARM Linux (in Debian/Ubuntu)

    Linux on ARMEarlier this month, I wrote an article about PCoIP Technology which shows an Android application (VMWare View) running on an OMAP4 Tablet displaying a Windows 7 desktop. This remote desktop technology relies on a powerful server to do the processing and thin clients (in that case Tablets) to display the desktop. Since only pixels are transferred any OS (supported by the server) could be displayed in the thin client.

  • Load Ubuntu on Your Android Device With Ease

    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.

  • Three OMAP4 Vulnerabilities Fixed for Ubuntu 11.04

    Linux on ARMThree security vulnerabilities that were discovered in the Linux kernel for OMAP4 packages by various developers, this time affecting the Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) operating system, were announced today by Canonical.
