Linux systems specialists Codethink announce the latest open source release of the Baserock Linux operating system and toolchain: Baserock 6 - available now from

First chance for the automotive community to get hands on experience with Baserock Linux on ARM hardware.

The new Baserock 6 release incorporates a number of performance improvements, and sets the scene for the first ever public hands-on with the Baserock ARMv7 development and build environment, running on ARM server hardware, at the GENIVI All Members’ Meeting event in Barcelona April 22 - 26.

Baserock was selected as a GENIVI Baseline late 2012, and is now one of only two Baselines tracking GENIVI’s accelerated six-week cycle in the runup to the GENIVI Foton 1.0 release in April.

The GENIVI Baseline Integration Team recognised that Baserock’s fully open source build approach aligns beautifully with GENIVI’s objectives to promote effective exploitation of a full open source software stack for in­vehicle infotainment systems. Baserock provides a repeatable toolchain and is designed to smooth the pain of integration and validation for updates to upstream components.

The GENIVI Baseline Integration Team’s hands­on session on Friday 26th will be the first public opportunity for GENIVI members to get first­hand experience with the latest Baserock toolchain for ARMv7 devices, running on dedicated ARM Server equipment at the venue.

Slots for the hands­on session are strictly limited by capacity at the venue, and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so GENIVI members wanting to participate are advised to register their interest to secure places well in advance.
