RAUC v1.2 Released

Enrico Jörns | | RAUC

Right before the ELC-E starts tomorrow, we used the time in the hotel to bake a brand new RAUC release for you (and your embedded devices)! Well, here it is: RAUC v1.2


ELC-E 2019

Robert Schwebel | | Event

Morgen startet die Embedded Linux Conference Europe in Lyon/Frankreich, und wie in jedem Jahr nutzt das Pengutronix Team die Gelegenheit zur Präsentation unserer aktuellen Open Source Aktivitäten und zur Vernetzung mit anderen Entwicklern in der Open Source Community. Folgende Tasks wird es in den nächsten Tagen geben:


Launch of Linux Automation GmbH

Chris Fiege | | linux-automation

We proudly present our new spin-off Linux Automation GmbH for selling hardware products, like USB-SD-Mux.



Safe and Secure Field Updates of Embedded Linux Systems

Enrico Jörns | | RAUC, OTA, Talk

In this blog post I would like to address the challenges of performing unattended and verified updates of embedded Linux systems in the field using open source software and workflows. While updating is not a end in itself, a second part of my considerations goes even further and also works out the necessities and possible workflows for keeping the software stack of a project up to date and thus either preventing security issues or at least enabling a short reaction time in case of severe CVE'S discovered.


15 Years of i.MX in Mainline Linux

Today it has been 15 years since we mainlined support for Freescale/NXP's i.MX architecture in the Linux kernel! That was one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for (industrial Linux users') mankind :-) Here is some background about why it happened and what you might want to learn from history for your next embedded Linux project.


FrOSCon 14

Chris Fiege | | Event

Pengutronix has been to FrOSCon at the University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg. This year we had a booth where we presented our Open Source activities and were able to contribute three talks. A booth at an Open Source conference like FrOSCon always opens doors to a lot of interesting conversations with new faces, old friends and colleagues.


Statische Dateisysteme

Jürgen Borleis | | PTXdist

Wann immer es erforderlich ist, ein embedded Gerät einfach so ohne Vorbereitung ausschalten zu können, kommt das Thema Dateisystem-Konsistenz auf. Werden Daten geschrieben und haben vor dem Ausschalten ihren Weg auf das Speichermedium noch nicht vollständig gefunden, droht deren Verlust.


CERT@VDE Innovation Workshop

Enrico Jörns | | Event, OSADL, RAUC, CERT@VDE

On June, 27th, while the sun was relentlessly heating up Germany as hardly every before, above 50 employees from many companies came together in a well air-conditioned room in the TP ConferenceCenter in Heidelberg. All operating in different fields of application but all involved in embedded systems and all interested to learn something new about security and deploying software updates.


Foster mvebu Support in barebox

Uwe Kleine-König | | barebox

barebox works great on NXP's i.MX platforms. While there is some support for Marvell's mvebu platform, it is not even near being complete. The main limitation is in my eyes that there is no code to initialize RAM settings on these machines.
