Codethink Gets The NVIDIA Jetson TK1 Running With Linux 3.15, Wayland
Codethink has been playing with NVIDIA's very interesting Jetson TK1 ARM development board that pairs a quad-core Cortex-A15 (plus fifth companion core) with a Kepler-based graphics processor. In little work they've managed to get Wayland running on the NVIDIA device along with using the latest stable Linux kernel.
Codethink has shared with us their work that they spent a day getting the Linux 3.15 kernel paired with their Baserock Linux platform up and running on NVIDIA's Jetson TK1 development board in less than 24 hours. Codethink is running the Jetson TK1 with a "100% open-source graphics driver stack" and is running EGL clients with Wayland and the Weston compositor, after some additional work.
At this time it doesn't look like they've put out any custom image for Jetson TK1 owners, but are simply advertising their work as a UK-based consulting company. Those wishing to learn more about their Linux 3.15 + Wayland experiments with the Jetson TK1 can find out more at Codethink.co.uk and via the video embedded below.
