openSUSE 12.2 for ARM Final


As was promised last week, the openSUSE ARM team has released openSUSE 12.2 for the ARM architecture! Almost all of the usual openSUSE distribution (>5000 packages) builds and runs on all the ARM hardware it has been tested on. Read on to find out more.

It is out!

Initiated at the openSUSE Conference in 2011 in Nürnberg, the openSUSE ARM team has managed to bring one of the most important Linux distributions to the ARM architecture in a little over a year. At this point, the team is confident openSUSE 12.2 can be installed and used on the following devices:

BeagleBoard (xM)
Panda Board
Versatile Express (QEMU)
Chroot / do-it-yourself environment

Four more devices are supported as a ‘best effort’:

Calxeda Highbank
i.MX53 Loco
CuBox
Origen Board
Efika MX

Almost all of openSUSE builds and runs on these – that is about 5000 packages. If you want to go and try openSUSE on your ARM hardware, go to this page and grab your stuff. Find more details on the wiki page has plenty of information on how to join the team and help giving Geeko ARMs!
