Ubuntu – How to install Ubuntu on ARMv7 hardware


I was wondering how can I install normal Ubuntu working version on a device that has an ARMv7 processor?

Best Answer

Do you mean ARM7 or ARMv7?

If the former, I don't believe you can - not with Ubuntu. Other distros might though. Debian certainly supports ARM11, and maybe older. Gentoo might also, and if not you can probably rebuild it so most of the software works, assuming the kernel is OK. I can't just put my finger on any positive statement from any of them though.

Otherwise, the current Ubuntu/Linaro ARM release is for ARMv7 processors only (i.e. Cortex-A series). The best starting point is probably http://www.linaro.org.
