Linaro 14.09 Release with Kernel 3.17 and Android 4.4.4

September 27th, 2014 No comments

Linaro 14.09 has just been released with Linux kernel 3.17-rc4 (baseline), Linux 3.10.54 & 3.14.19 (LSK), and Android 4.4.2 & 4.4.4.

Linaro has kept working on their member boards such as IFC6410 (Qualcomm), D01 (Huawei/Hisilicon), Ardnale (Samsung), and Juno (ARM). They’ve also announced they’ll change the tools to build GCC by using cbuild2 instead of cbuild1 for next release, and they’ve enabled a build with gcov (for code coverage analysis) which may mean they’ll work on reducing the kernel size by getting rid off unused code. I’ve also noticed the Arndale and Arndale Octa Ubuntu images are now based on Linux LSK with Mali GPU support since last month.

Here are the highlights of this release:

  • Linux Linaro 3.17-rc4-2014.09
    • GATOR version 5.19
    • updated topic from Qualcomm LT (ifc6410 board support) and HiSilicon LT
    • updated Versatile Express ARM64 support (FVP Base and Foundation models, Juno) from ARM LT.
    • updated Versatile Express patches from ARM LT
    • updated LLVM topic (follows the community llvmlinux-latest branch)
    • Big endian support (the 2014.05 topic version rebased to 3.17 kernel)
    • config fragments changes – added gcov config fragment, disabled DRM_EXYNOS_IOMMU to work around boot failure on Arndale
  • Linaro Toolchain Binaries 2014.09
    • based on GCC 4.9 and updated to latest Linaro TCWG releases: Linaro GCC 4.9-2014.09, Linaro binutils 2.24-2014.09, and Linaro GDB 7.8-2014.09.
    • This will be the last release done with cbuild1 and crosstool-ng. Next releases will be done with cbuild2. Official support for very old host environments will be dropped.
  • Linaro builds of AOSP 14.09 built with Linaro GCC 4.9-2014.09.
  • Linaro OpenEmbedded 2014.09
    • integrated Linaro GCC 4.9-2014.09, Linaro binutils 2.24-2014.09, integrated Linaro GDB 7.8-2014.09.
    • imported Linaro eglibc 2.19 into meta-linaro after OE-core switched to glibc 2.20
    • fixed shadow securetty for Qualcomm and STMicroelectronics SoCs
    • upstreaming – fixed libpng on aarch64 (neon symbol), updated PM QA to 0.4.14, updated libunwind to include aarch64 support
  • Linaro Ubuntu 14.09
    • added linux-tools (perf standalone, splitted from kernel build)
    • updated packages: Juno firmware 0.8.1, LSK 3.10.55/3.14.19 and linux-linaro 3.17-rc4 kernels.
  • A gcov enabled build has been added
  • Linaro builds of the Android NDK have been updated to current upstream sources and current Linaro toolchain component releases.
  • Standalone Android toolchain binary builds now use Linaro binutils for improved armv8 support.

Huawei D01 Server Board Features 16 ARM Cortex A15 Cores with up to 64 GB RAM, 3 SATA, 2 GbE Ports

March 18th, 2014 7 comments

During Linaro 14.02 release, I noticed a Huawei D01 board with 16 ARM Cortex A15 core, but details were lacking. Charbax was a Linaro Connect Asia earlier this month, and he could film the board in action, and interview the development team about this server board, and software development.

Huawei D01 Server Board

Huawei D01 Server Board

Huawei D01 specifications:

  • Processor
    • HiSilicon SoC with16 x ARM Cortex-A15 CPU Core @ max. 1.5GHz (up to 84000 DMIPS)
    • Support for CPU configuration as AMP/SMP
    • Configurable Big or Little endian. Default: Little endian
  • System Memory – 2x 64bit DDR3 DRAM Dual Inline Memory up to 1600 MHz, Module(DIMM) sockets:(2)&(3) . Default capacity: 8GB, upgradeable to 64GB
  • Storage – 2x 1Gb NOR Flash, 2x 512MB NAND Flash, 3x SATA III for 2.5″ hard drives or SSD, 1x SD card
  • Connectivity – 2x 10/100/1000Mbit/s Gigabit Ethernet ports, 1x 10/100Mbit/s FE port
  • Other Peripheral Interfaces
    • 2x USB 2.0 Host ports
    • 2x UART, 4x I2C, 2x SPI supporting four CSs
    • GPIO – 8x LED interfaces, 8x switches
    • 2x Tracer Connector
    • 1x JTAG interfaces( 5×2 pin CPU Connector, ARM Connector)
  • Expansions – 1x PCI Express interfaces, 3x MDIO interfaces
  • Hardware Monitor Subsystem – Power consumption sense
  • Misc –  Power-off and reset buttons

The BIOS resides in the NOR Flash and support update via FTP. The board runs Ubuntu server OS with Linux 3.13 (upgraded to 3.14 soon), and the target market is mostly cloud based applications. Linaro will use the board for developing software for Hisilicon, and as a native ARM build machine.

Watch the video below. Warning: Noisy ARM server!

You can find more technical details on Linaro D01 page.
