openSUSE:ARM Tech Symposia 2014

tagline: From openSUSE

openSUSE was represented with a booth at ARM Tech Symposium Europe. For questions contact Andreas Färber.

Open Build Service on AArch64

An OBS instance was shown running on openSUSE Factory on the AppliedMicro X-C1, building packages for aarch64, armv7l and x86 architectures as well as multiple distributions.

Hadoop on AArch64

Apache Hadoop 2.6.0 was shown running on openSUSE 13.2 on the AMD Opteron A1100 reference platform.

openSUSE 13.2 image deployment

The openSUSE 13.2 Raspberry Pi image was downloaded and copied to an SD card, tweaked for headless usage, booted up and configured for the booth-local network.

Kernel upstreaming work

The HP Chromebook 11 was shown runnning openSUSE 13.2 with the current linux-next based kernel patch queue for 3.19, including exynos drm driver with eDP-LVDS bridge support.

The Parallella board was shown running a 3.18-rc4 based kernel, including patches with a proof-of-concept Epiphany driver.

The ODROID-XU was shown running openSUSE Factory with a kernel based on the Samsung for-next tree for 3.19.

Linux droide 3.18.0-rc5+ #16 SMP PREEMPT Sun Nov 23 21:50:26 CET 2014 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

STM32F4 Hackweek project

A project from SUSE Hackweek Interstellar was presented as demonstration of how openSUSE 13.2 is handy for ARM development beyond the Beagleboards and Chromebooks of this world: A Linux kernel, built with the native openSUSE compiler toolchain on an ODROID-XU device, was shown running with a tiny µCLinux userspace on the STM32F429-Discovery microcontroller board. All the gory details here.
