openSUSE has been talking for years about a port to ARM but never got there.  There IS support in the Open Build Service for ARM but most openSUSE packages don't build properly for ARM.  There is talk this week from several people, including Greg Kroah-Hartman, about resuming porting efforts.  They are in talks about a "target" hardware platform.  There are just TOO many ARM variants.  I think the D2 plug would be a great target platform.

Does anybody know if Marvell would be willing to donate some D2 plugs to the openSUSE project to encourage the port?  Currently the build service does ARM builds using a cross compiler.  Perhaps they could include a few D2's in the build farm for native compiles.  Currently Ubuntu has panda boards in their build farm.  Let's compete.

Marvell should be made aware that the openSUSE build service will build ANY distribution.  See https://build.opensuse.org/ and http://openbuildservice.org/.  Providing Marvell servers to the project would help all distributions who would like to port to ARM.
