To the Bat Cluster! Setting Up Enterprise Linux for ARM
with Josh Everett (Red Hat) and Massimo Moran (ARM)
The Dragon Propulsion Laboratory examined in depth the excellent X-Gene ARM chips that were an early entrant on the ARM 64-bit scene and enabled so much of the software-side Linux OS development on ARMv8. More recently, we built a custom cluster in cooperation with Wayne Enterprises that we affectionately refer to as our “Bat Cluster”. In this third blog, we are moving back to the software side of the equation, setting up Red Hat Enterprise Linux on the Bat Cluster itself.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux introduced full support for 64-bit ARM with release 7.4 in November of 2017, and while there are many flavors of Linux on ARM, only something as robust and secure as RHEL would do for a sophisticated user like Wayne Enterprises!
The most commonplace strategy for board bring-up on ARM development boards is to use a PXE...
