    Default openSUSE support for ARM

    Hi,

    Given the popularity of all sorts of ARM devices nowadays, I was wondering whether the openSUSE devs are considering supporting ARM? Maybe there are even some steps that already had been taken? Would someone care to describe the challenges?

    Thanks,
    Gbor

    I am not sure how much is realized but there have been some steps taken/considerations made:

    Martin,

    Thanks for your reply. I checked out the links you mention, and I get the impression that there is not much progress on ARM support.

    Currently an openSuSE ARM mailinglist exists.
    Maybe it's best to join the effort to build an openSuSE ARM distro.
