Linux on ARMBack in April I wrote about an open-source graphics driver for Qualcomm's Snapdragon. This reverse-engineered driver project was actually started by an employee of Texas Instruments -- a competitor to Qualcomm -- but was being done since it was some of the only ARM hardware out there where the developer wasn't tainted by NDAs. Since Phoronix delivered the announcement of this Snapdragon GPU driver, there hasn't been much news to report.

Linux on ARMThere's a growing number of features coming about for the Linux 3.5 kernel. Covered so far has been the DRM GPU drivers, input, input, and other areas. The ARM architecture has also been enhanced with Linux 3.5.

Linux on ARMIf you are tired of waiting for Red Hat to do an official port of its Enterprise Linux commercial distribution to the ARM architecture, well then Red Sleeve Linux has just what you are looking for.

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 ARMThe new wave of fun geek toys is inexpensive, hackable, tiny Linux-powered ARM computers, and they're red hot. This is the year to go small.
 

Fedora 17 For ARM Goes Into Beta

Information
2012-May-24 | Tags: fedora

Linux on ARMWhile Fedora 17 should be released next week, the ARM version is lagging behind and has just reached its own beta milestone. The Beefy Miracle for ARM isn't in quite as good shape as the i686 and x86_64 binaries, but at least now it's reaching beta. This architecture is handled by a separate Fedora (ARM) community team.

Linux on ARMVIA Technologies is entering Raspberry Pi territory with its latest product — the APC. It's a $49 barebones computer designed to run Google Android. The system includes a processor, memory, storage, and a range of ports for connectivity — but no case.

Linux on ARMARM has published a new open-source X.Org DDX Linux graphics driver while working to enable support for their next-generation ARM Mali T6xx graphics core.
 

Linux on ARMCalxeda is cranking up the burgeoning competition between Intel and ARM Holdings with a demonstration this week of an ARM-based server running a Linux operating system. Calxeda, which last fall announced a partnership with Hewlett-Packard to develop very low-power systems running on ARM-based processors, on May 7 showed off the prototype server powered by its EnergyCard compute blades at the Ubuntu Developer and Cloud Summit in Oakland, Calif.

Linux on ARMWhile comparing compiler performance of different Linux code compilers on different software stacks and hardware configurations is nothing new at all to Phoronix, usually it's done on x86 hardware. However, with ARM hardware becoming increasingly common and much more powerful, here's a comparison of the GCC and LLVM/Clang compilers on a dual-core ARM development board.

Linux on ARMHP has just announced today the powerful HP t410 All-in-One (AiO) Smart Zero Client, on its official website. The t410 is featuring new and innovative one-wire Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, while still providing outstanding multimedia performance and a true PC-like experience.

Linux on ARMBack in the day, everything was all about DOS or CPM on Z-80. That was replaced by an era of Windows on Intel, but on 28th May the new world order prepares to feel smug and enjoy the new noodles in Hong Kong. KitGuru prepares to check into the Gold Coast Hotel and tries to gauge which way the South China ASIC Sea is flowing.

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.
