Engineers take just 24 hours to get a new open source 3.15 Linux operating system running on new NVIDIA Jetson TK1

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Manchester, UK (PRWEB UK) 13 June 2014 "This shows what's possible with the right people working on a fully open source software stack with Baserock," said Codethink CEO Paul Sherwood. "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 with a fully working system, with wayland and weston running EGL clients using totally open technologies." Software engineer, James Thomas, carried out the work using the Baserock operating system workflow designed by Codethink's world-class team. "It's pretty exciting to show that we can now get a complete bang-up-to-date Linux operating system running on this amazing board in 24 hours," said James. " Most projects take weeks or months to get to this stage, if you can get there at all." "Keeping the whole software stack open means you can innovate faster and optimise all the way down to the metal," said Codethink CTO Rob Taylor. "No NDAs, no third party dependencies, no secret sauce, just open source. "Hats off to NVIDIA for their great community contributions that have made this possible, and to the great work done by the free and open source software developers around the world." The NVIDIA Jetson TK1 features a 4-core A15 cpu and a 192-core Kepler K1, all for under $200. As far as we know it's the first ARM board to feature fully open hardware accelerated graphics software support with the backing of the silicon vendor. The high performance and low price make it ideal both for kickstarter projects and for established players. For more information about NVIDIA Jetson see

About Baserock Baserock is an open source project originally created by Codethink engineers, which integrates a large set of open source and free software components into complete custom operating systems. It's a bit like a Linux distro, a build system, a workflow and a development environment all in one. The general aim of the project is to fix the things that are wrong with systems software engineering.
