Ubuntu Server and Cloud on ARM

Registered by Martin Bogomolni on 2009-11-09

Recent increases in the cost of energy, and the cost of hosting servers, has created a demand for low power/high performance alternatives to running Linux on x86 architecture machines.

The goal is to build Ubuntu Lucid ARM server packages, a build system, bootloader, and installer that supports ARM v7 architectures. (Cortex A8, Cortex A9 )

This spec has been superseded by https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/server-o-arm-server
