The first openSUSE ARM release is nearly ready. The openSUSE 12.2 for ARM should be out next week while available today is the second and final release candidate.

The openSUSE 12.2 ARM RC2 release features various bug-fixes, an update repository for the images, various fixes for booting machines without RTC, a YaST first-boot stage for configuring the system, and small packaging changes. Newly-supported ARM systems include the Calxeda Highbank, CuBox, i.MX 53, and Samsung Origen.

The openSUSE 12.2 ARM RC2 release is mentioned over on news.opensuse.org.

The openSUSE community has high hopes for ARM and last week in Prague they shared how to port openSUSE to new ARM platforms.
