What it is

ARM is a family of instruction set architectures for computer processors based on a reduced instruction set computing (RISC) architecture developed by British company ARM Holdings.

Current supported architecture

  • armv7l - softfloat (can be used on OLD devices)
  • armv7hl - hardfloat (modern phones/boards)
  • aarch64 - our future (will be available for purchase in Q2 2014)

Hardware

We use wandboard.org boards

Speecification Wandboard Solo Wandboard Dual Wandboard Quad
Processor Freescale i.MX6 Solo Freescale i.MX6 DualLite Freescale i.MX6 Quad

How to install OMV on ARM

Goals

  • to have working KDE on arm7l and arm7hl
  • get an aarch64 board (currently only crosscompiling)
