"I retain the right to change my mind, as always. Le Linus e mobile."
~ Linus Torvalds
The Linaro 16.12 release is now available for download!
This is probably the last installment of this monthly largely autogenerated email. Fewer and fewer components in Linaro have monthly cycles and with other changes scheduled for 2017 this email has become less than useful.
The releases and snapshot they are based on will continue, but no email about them anymore.
Also: shortest cycle ever!
If you have snow where you live, I’m very jealous. If you live on the southern hemisphere with hot, sunny weather, I’m also very jealous. If you like rain, wind and gloom, come visit me! Enjoy the holidays!
Using the Android-based images
The Android-based images come in three parts: system, userdata and boot.
These need to be combined to form a complete Android install. For an
explanation of how to do this please see:
If you are interested in getting the source and building these images
yourself please see the following pages:
Using the OpenEmbedded-based images
With the Linaro provided downloads and with ARM’s Fast Models virtual
platform, you can boot a virtual ARMv8 system and run 64-bit binaries.
For more information please see:
Using the Debian-based images
The Debian-based images consist of two parts. The first part is a
hardware pack, which can be found under the hwpacks directory and
contains hardware specific packages (such as the kernel and bootloader).
The second part is the rootfs, which is combined with the hardware pack
to create a complete image. For more information on how to create an
image please see:
