Hackweek is a SUSE tradition in which any engineer can work on any Free
Software project for a week. This year's Hackweek included a team
of four SUSE employees
who worked with the openSUSE community on an
openSUSE ARM port. "Currently, openSUSE Factory for ARM is build for armv5tel (soft floating point with thumbs) and for armv7l (hard floating point with aapcs-linux ABI). These are widely used architectures and seem to be becoming a cross-distribution standard as well. Right now, almost 2500 packages are building successfully and tests on real hardware have shown these to work. As low-level dependencies are being fixed many more packages are expected to come in over the next couple of days.
