Currently we target AArch64 (armv8, ARM 64-bit), armv7l/armv7hl (hard floating point with aapcs-linux ABI, for armv7) and armv6l/armv6hl (hard floating point, for armv6, only in Tumbleweed). If you have knowledge and experience, please help out. If you don't take part you have no justification to complain - you've got to be in it to win it ;-)

Feel free to join the openSUSE Arm mailing list as well as the #openSUSE-arm IRC channel for questions or help. We are also actively looking for people to enable hardware we don't support yet. If you have an armv8 or armv7 based device that doesn't work yet and are willing to spend some time to get it working with openSUSE, please contact us on the mailing list.

And if your are a hardware vendor, you may want to donate some hardware to the openSUSE project to enable openSUSE on your system, to test openSUSE on your system, or to add more build power to our Arm build system.

There is also always room for improvement on the package building side of things. You can check out Factory build failures to see what packages need some love. If you think you can help out, please try and fix something that doesn't work and submitrequest the change to devel projects. Help is very much welcome!

If you'd like to enable a board that is not listed below or improve others, check out our ARM Contrib program that allows for non-upstream supported systems to get openSUSE support.

Building packages locally via osc or even manually to test is not difficult thanks to QEMU. We recommend to use the latest Leap or Tumbleweed as your base build OS as it contains the latest tool set to run Arm binaries.

Thanks and here's to getting our Geeko some Arms.
