During Linaro Connect 2015 Asia there was announcement about new Linaro project called “96boards”. It is about making cheap ARM/AArch64 boards in same form factor and same placement of ports. And first board named HiKey was presented. Today third one — from
So today Linaro announced their first board from 96boards project. It is named HiKey and is based on HiSilicon cpu for mobile phones. I had an occasion to see that board during FOSDEM and decided to write something about it
I do not remember exactly when I started working on ARMv8 stuff. Checked old emails from Linaro times and found that we discussed AArch64 bootstrap using OpenEmbedded during Linaro Connect Asia (June 2012). But it had to wait a bit… [First we
It was 8th May of 2004 when I did first push to OpenEmbedded repository. It was BitKeeper at that time but if someone wants to look then [commit can be seen in git](http://git.openembedded.org/openembedded/commit/?id=458b45b23e99f1b0a5549d3cb3ec082b5007d4ca). I will not write about my OE history
In 2012 I was porting OpenEmbedded to target AArch64 so I can say that I did first OE builds for that architecture.
But today I did kind of reverse thing.
It was somewhere between 7th and 11th February 2004 when I got package with my first Linux/ARM device. It was Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 (also named “collie”) and all started… At that time I had Palm M105 (still own) and Sony CLIE
