One Line Summary

Meetup for ARM Linux distributions interested in working together


Recent discussion of ARM-related topics in various forums show that there are a number of places where the various Linux distros targetting ARM could (and should!) work together to make things work well. This BoF should be a good place for those discussions.

The initial proposed agenda is:

  • ARM hard-float:
    – What is it and why does it matter?
    – How can distributions keep compatible (i.e. gcc triplet to describe the port)?
  • Adding support for ARM as an architecture to the Linux Standard Base (LSB)
    – Does it matter?
    – What’s needed?
  • FHS – multi-arch coming soon, how do we proceed?
  • 3D support on ARM platforms
    – Open GL vs. GLES – which is appropriate?

but I’m sure that other people will think of more issues they’d like to discuss.
