openSUSE support for ARM


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?


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

openFATE #310070 : openSUSE support for ARM



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.


The build service is all setup to build ARM… people need to start
building I would assume…

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