There's more Linux ARM news today besides the merging of Cortex A15 Xen virtualization
and ARM 64-bit support
for the Linux 3.7 kernel. The latest news is the availability of a release candidate for openSUSE on ARM.
After nearly a year of work, the openSUSE team announced the first release candidate of openSUSE 12.2 ported to the ARM architecture. This follows the official release of openSUSE 12.2
for x86/x86_64 that happened last month.
The SoCs being officially supported by openSUSE 12.2 for ARM include the Texas Instruments OMAP3/OMAP3, Marvell ArmadaXP 510, and Freescale i.MX51. The supported development boards come down to the Beagleboards, Pandaboards, and EfikaMX. There's also a Versatile Express image of openSUSE for ARM if you want to run it within QEMU.
