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 ARMJust when you thought Chromebook support from manufacturers might be fading, it looks like Sony is moving forward with a Chromebook of its own.  The Sony VAIO VCC111 Series pictures and manual just showed up on the FCC this week, and in case there's any doubt as to whether this is a Chromebook the reference to "start Chrome OS" on page 2 of the manual should put an end to any debate this might be a Windows machine Ultrabook:

Linux on ARMIf you use Linux at all (and in many cases these days, even if you don't), you have heard of the open source Linux compiler called GNU Compiler Collection, or GCC for short. It's the most common compiler used, shipping with almost all distributions of Linux, and it's actually older than Linux itself.

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 ARMAlthough the intent of the previous article, entitled Comparing JVMs on ARM/Linux, was to introduce and highlight the availability of the HotSpot server compiler (referred to as c2) for Java SE-Embedded ARM v7,  it seems, based on feedback, that everyone was more interested in the OpenJDK comparisons to Java SE-E.  But there were two main concerns:

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 ARMIn November 2011, the Raspberry Pi foundation announced that Nokia purchased codes for 400 boards from the 1st 10,000 batch, in order to give them away to selected developers that are interested in helping develop and test Qt 5 on the Raspberry Pi. This developer program is called QtonPi.

Linux on ARMA group of developers at KDE have been working to offer a tablet with free and open source software based on the KDE Plasma Active user interface. Up until recently that tablet was called the “Spark,” but developer Aaron Seigo says that trademark issues have prompted the group to choose another name.

Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi $35 Linux computer sold out within hours of going on sale in February - with demand for the device reportedly hitting 700 orders per minute. The upshot is a lot of people who wanted the credit card-sized Raspberry Pi have been left empty-handed - with anyone ordering the device today unlike to receive one until about July.

Linux on ARMBesides the DRM work already piling up for Linux 3.4, there's more. The Samsung developers responsible for the Exynos graphics driver have sent in their "-next" pull request, which brings several new features, including the basis of 2D acceleration for this open-source ARM graphics driver. There's also a virtual display driver that could be used for handling wireless displays.

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 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 ARMIt took several weeks longer than planned, but the "recommended" Linux distribution for the Raspberry Pi, the credit-card sized computer that retails for $35, Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix is finally ready to run.

Linux on ARMFOR THE LUCKY FEW who have escaped supply shortages and manufacturing glitches to actually get their hands on a Raspberry Pi microcomputer there is now a recommended Linux distro to install.

Linux on ARMThe Raspberry Pi foundation has suffered a production setback that could delay delivery of the organization's $35 Linux computer. The manufacturer accidentally used ethernet jacks without integrated magnetics, built-in transformers that provide DC-isolation and help filter noise.
