Linux is becoming the preferred choice for embedded systems, but the Linux kernel is still an open source project.
The first step to gaining more developers to work on the project is a focus on ARM, a mobile platform that is the fastest-growing computing platform of all time.
For years, Linux has been one of the main operating systems on mobile devices, but for the past two years, ARM has become the dominant platform for embedded computing, and its developers have worked on creating the Linux Kernel.
While Linux’s focus on mobile has been a boon for developers, it has also created some headaches for ARM, which has long struggled to maintain a large and stable kernel.
A group of ARM developers called the Linux Foundation, or LF, is launching a new effort this year to address this issue.
They want to open source the ARM kernel and open source a set of tools that developers can use to build custom kernels.
The Linux Foundation has already started work on a new tool called the ARM Build Tools, which is aimed at creating a set in which developers can easily create custom kernels for various platforms.
The goal is to get ARM developers to focus on the ARM Linux kernel, instead of other open source projects.
We’re really hoping that by the end of the year, there will be a set and the community will really come together around this, says Filippo Bresciani, a member of the LF’s board.
The ARM Build Tool is a new version of the toolkit that the Linux developers have been using for several years, and this version is focused on building custom kernels on the Linux architecture.
There are some limitations to the ARM toolkit, like that it requires a lot of code, and there are no plans to make it open source.
But this version will help developers build kernels that have a reasonable amount of RAM and CPU.
The ARM Build tool is still a work in progress, so there are some issues to be worked out before it’s ready to be used by developers.
For instance, the tool requires the developer to have a Linux machine and a recent version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the software that ships with Linux distributions.
That means a lot more work for developers.
Bresciyan hopes that the ARM developers will get involved to make the tool more robust and usable.
The LF is also working on a project called ARM Compiler Toolkit, or ACT, which would be a compiler toolkit for Linux.
It’s designed to be a bridge between the Linux Compiler and the other open sources, including the Linux Development Kit.
Bresciy said that this toolkit would allow ARM developers not only to use the Linux compiler for their kernels, but also to make custom kernels using the tool.
The toolkit is expected to be released in 2018, but that may not be the case, as many ARM developers are already working on ARM-specific projects.
There is also talk of adding support for the Intel Atom processor, which the Linux community has long used for chipsets, and Bresce said that the LFs goal is not to supplant the other platforms but to provide a bridge to other platforms.
This toolkit will be able to build a custom kernel that has a reasonable level of memory and CPU, Brescsiyan said.
That’s a big step forward from the last time that the community used it.
