Open Linux stack for Nvidia Jetson SBC taps new Linux 3.15
Codethink demonstrated its Baserock Linux stack running the new Linux 3.15 kernel and an open source graphics driver stack on Nvidia’s Jetson TK1 SBC.
Codethink ported Baserock with the new Linux kernel to the Jetson in 24 hours to promote its Linux stack’s workflow tools while also showing off the capabilities of Nvidia’s open source Linux development board. “This shows what’s possible with the right people working on a fully open source software stack with Baserock,” stated Paul Sherwood, CEO of Manchester, UK-based Codethink. “Linux 3.15 was released late Sunday in California. We got our board on Monday. James started the work on Tuesday. By Wednesday we had a fully working system, with wayland and weston running EGL clients using totally open technologies.”
