Linux runs on the UP board

Linux runs on the UP board

[fusion_text]The UP board will run on Linux, however you might not be aware that Intel does not support Linux on the Cherry Trail platform natively. We are therefore developing the drivers and ensuring that all of the functions work as expected. Since there are no official resources available from Intel, this engineering effort is much more than would be required for other platforms. This effort has meant that it has taken us longer than expected to get the UP board running on Ubilinux. However, the good news is : Linux now runs on the UP board. Let’s have a sneak view of how it is going.[/fusion_text][youtube id=”https://youtu.be/pQQCtvDRcVA” width=”600″ height=”350″ autoplay=”no” api_params=”” class=””][/youtube][fusion_text]The next task which we are active on is to enable all of the drivers of the 40-pin GP-bus. Taking into account the pin definition and electrical characteristic details, the 40-pin GP-bus is expected to provide same functionality to the Raseberry-Pi solution. This is our goal and we are working on it. We will enable at least 3 HAT modules and ensure that the UP board works perfectly with those. Of course, anyone in the UP community is welcome to help enable more HAT modules after you receive the UP board.
We plan to validate at least 3 Linux distributions – Ubliinux, Ubuntu, and Snappy, which are not in Intel support list. If you are an expert on Linux and you are already working with the Cherry Trail platform, we would really like to get feedback from you which may also help to expedite the project.
