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 ARMI had previously written the instructions to build an older version of Chromium (via Berkelium) for ARM using Beagleboard/Overo rootfs in order to use it with Xibo digital signage. Recently I’ve been contacted by hexxeh, who maintains Chromium OS vanilla builds for x86 and MacOS computer, as he intends to provide Chromium OS for the Raspberry Pi, and you should be able to get a SD card image once everything is working from the site above.

Linux on ARMIt's been the most highly anticipated launch in the history of development boards, but one of the most problem-ridden too. Originally unveiled early last year with a suggested launch schedule of September 2011, the Raspberry Pi single-board computer has proven a beast to get out of the door - but the first retail models are finally landing in customers' hands this week.

Linux on ARMThere is another new open-source Linux graphics driver entering development and it has already showed signs of success with basic 2D acceleration working. This new open-source driver is for Qualcomm's Snapdragon / Adreno and who is leading the development of this driver is also quite interesting.

Linux on ARMLinaro is leading ARM Linux unification efforts, according to its CEO, and the organisation is looking to lead the ARMies of chip makers in other areas of Linux development as well by acting as a safe "demilitarised zone" for the many ARM vendors that make up its membership.

Linux on ARMThe open-source ARM Mali graphics driver, known as the the Lima project, has achieved a major milestone. Since delivering the exclusive news of the Lima project as an open-source reverse-engineered ARM Mali graphics driver for Linux back in January, there hasn't been too much else to report on about this driver that's still early in its development life.

Linux on ARMIn anticipation of the arrival of my Raspberry pi I decided that I could wait no longer and decided to have a look at one of the Raspberry pi OS's. Due to the Raspberry pi having an arm processor, running the Raspberry pi Fedora remix within virtualbox would not be possible.

Linux on ARMArch Linux ARM is a distribution of Linux for ARM computers. We are aimed at ARMv5 platforms like plug computers, OXNAS-based ARMv6 PogoPlugs, Cortex-A8 platforms such as the BeagleBoard, and Cortex-A9 and Tegra platforms like the PandaBoard and TrimSlice. However, it can run on any device that supports ARMv5te or ARMv7 instruction sets. Our collaboration with Arch Linux brings users the best platform, newest packages, and installation support.

Linux on ARMThis video introduces C and C++ programming on the Beaglebone platform, which is applicable to any embedded Linux development. I quickly introduce how we can program directly on the beaglebone using a terminal window and point out the limitations.

Linux on ARMRapidDisk LX is a custom ARM-based Linux distribution built entirely out of source and inspired by the Cross Linux From Scratch project. Its main and only purpose is to provide RapidDisk functionality as a SCSI Target over a Storage Area Network (SAN).

Linux on ARMThis tutorial is an updated version of this old post, with newer software and less obsolete emulated hardware. - Every year the market produces tons of new products that run on ARM cores, and are able to run operating systems such as Linux. While most of these products are quite expensive (think about smartphones, development kits or evaluation boards) it’s possible to explore the world of Linux on ARM freely, thanks to software emulators like QEMU.

Linux on ARMAndroid phones have undergone a transformation over the last few years. Unlike other platforms that often seem reluctant to change, Android phones have only gotten bigger and faster, squeezing even more awesomeness into every cubic centimeter of each passing new generation. Along for the ride are other fun things such as allowing Android users to run software that isn't actually Android.

Linux on ARMWhile Ubuntu support for ARM hardware is in great shape with Canonical investing significantly in the rapidly-growing ARM-based mobile market and the to-be-growing ARM server-space, plus other Linux distributions taking on ARM, official support for Fedora on ARM hasn't been quick to come by. In fact, Fedora developers still remain unconvinced about taking on ARM as a primary architecture.

Linux on ARMGoogle's upcoming "Daisy" Chromebook will reportedly use Samsung's ARM-based Exynos 5250 SoC. - ChromeStory reports that the rumored "Daisy" Chromebook will be powered by Samsung's upcoming ARM-based Exynos 5250 SoC.

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.
