Brave Iyonix and StrongARM RiscPC users step forward

Linux Tux mascotPeter Teichmann has released an "experimental" version of Linux 2.4.27 for the Castle XScale powered Iyonix. This port builds upon patches previously released by the Iyonix Linux project.

According to Peter, "The kernel is compiled with DMA support, which will speedup some operations including harddisk access. According to Peter Naulls, there can be problems with some harddisks, but not with the Maxtors supplied with the Iyonixes."

An experimental version of Linux 2.6.11 for StrongARM RiscPCs is also available from Peter Teichmann.

  • RISC OS 5 pictured running on ARM Cortex-A8 kit
    Picture exclusive - This grainy photograph shows a port of RISC OS 5, sourced from the RISC OS Open project, running on a Beagleboard - a device powered by a 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor with a built-in graphics chip. The port, developed by Jeffrey Lee with help from Uwe Kall and ROOL staff, is seen as a major breakthrough for the shared-source project as it proves the OS can be ported to new hardware without the need for a large team of engineers.
