Linux on ARMHardware vendor Ampere Computing with their impressive ARM servers is doing a great job on closely following their hardware's Linux performance as part of a rigorous continuous testing regiment or ensuring quality, compatibility, and stability while being fully-automated.

Linux on ARMIn one of my past posts, I showed how one can install Oracle Linux on a Raspberry Pi from a Mac via the command line. Luckily, my colleague Philippe pointed out to me that things can be even much, much easier thanks to Etcher, an open-source tool to flash SD cards and USB drives. Etcher is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows, which should make the following steps generic.

Linux on ARMOracle Linux 7 has been released for the Raspberry Pi 3. The release packages Btrfs as the root filesystem on the UEK-branded Linux 4.14 Long Term Support (LTS) kernel. A bootable disk image with a minimal install is provided along with a standard ISO installer.

Linux on ARMThe Arm SoC/platform changes arrived a bit late to the Linux 5.3 merge window ending this weekend. The Arm SoC/platform changes were only sent in on Friday night but include Librem 5 Developer Kit support in terms of the DeviceTree bits as well as improving the NVIDIA Jetson Nano support and various other SoC/platform additions.

Linux on ARMIt's been (and still is) a particularly busy few weeks for benchmarking. For those curious about the Raspberry Pi 4 performance that was announced at the end of June along with Raspbian 10, here are our initial performance benchmarks of the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B in 2GB and 4GB variants compared to various other ARM SBCs.

Linux on ARMOffensive Security, the makers of the Kali Linux ethical hacking and penetration testing operating system announced the general availability of a dedicated image for Raspberry Pi 4 devices.

Linux on ARMAlongside this week's announcement of the Raspberry Pi 4, the Raspberry Pi Foundation also released a new Raspbian operating system release that is re-based from Debian 9 Stretch to the soon-to-be-released Debian 10 Buster. In benchmarking of these new and old Raspbian releases on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus, there are performance gains to find even if not jumping to the Raspberry Pi 4.
