Linaro, a “winning idea”

without comments

Over on the Cadence blog, Joseph Hupcey III has a great quote about the role Linaro plays:

Linaro is such an obviously winning idea that it’s very surprising that this sort of initiative didn’t coalesce years ago. (If the gentle reader has some scars to prove their veteran status of earlier attempts at Linaro-like initiatives, I’d be happy to do an anonymized interview …) Whatever the history, ARM made it crystal clear that they are supporting Linaro any way they can.”

Linaro 11.05 Alpha-1 Released

The Linaro team is pleased to announce the availability of the 11.05
Alpha-1 images. These very early developer images build on the great
work done during the 10.11 cycle and can be downloaded from the
following location:


The images consist of two parts. A hardware pack which can be found
under the ./hwpacks directory contains hardware specific packages such
as the kernel and bootloader. The second part is the rootfs which is
combined with the hardware pack to create a complete image. For
information on how to create an image please see:
