ARMLinux @ Simtec

Whos who in ARMLinux

This page presents a brief overview of some of the people you are likely to encounter if you do any community work with ARMLinux. These are listed in no particular order.

Russell King

Image of Russell King....Were not worthy! Were not worthy!Russell is "the" ARM Linux guy, he did the initial port to Acorn A5000 many years ago and has continued to provide a huge level of input ever since. His advice should be heeded as he probably knows the ARM Linux kernel better than anyone else. Russell maintains the official ARM Linux project homepage where you can find a large number of resources.

Ben Dooks

Image of Ben DooksBen Dooks maintains all things Samsung including, but not limited to, the S3C2410 and S3C2440 ARM 9 SOC. His extensive work in this area means the samsung range of processors are one of the best supported. Ben maintains a homepage for ARM Linux things.

Nicolas Pitre

Image of Nicolas Pitre Nicolas did a lot of SA1100 and PXA work for the old 2.4 kernel series, his main interests more recently have been with improving ARM Linux floating point support although he continues to contribute to PXA in the 2.6 kernel series. He also argues with RMK... to frustrate RMK ;-)

Zwane Mwaikambo

Deepak Saxena

Ralph Siemsen

David Woodhouse

Image of David WoodhouseDavid is master of all things flash, more specifically the Memory Type Devices subsystem, whilst not exclusive to the ARM platform, we're probably his biggest users.

Thomas Gleixner

Image of Thomas GleixnerThomas is another MTD maintainer who specialises in NAND. Again although not specifically ARM related, we're one of the biggest users of their subsystem. Thomas also pitches in on other small ARM stuff when the whim takes him ;-)

Lennert Buytenhek

Vincent Sanders
