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.

For more information on today's openSUSE ARM release, see news.opensuse.org.

In other ARM news, this week I'm out at Calxeda's offices in Texas to benchmark their Ubuntu ARM Linux servers.
