Within Debian there are or have been four different ports to various flavours of the ARM architecture:

  • ArmPort - the first port, using the "old" (now obsolete) ABI (OABI). First released with 2.2 (Potato), last released with 5.0 (Lenny). GNU Triplet: arm-linux-gnu

  • ArmEabiPort - newer port using the "new" ABI (EABI), supported on ARM v4t and higher. First released with 5.0 (Lenny). GNU Triplet: arm-linux-gnueabi

  • ArmHardFloatPort - the latest 32-bit port, using the hard-float version of the "new" ABI (EABI), targetting ARM v7 and up. First released with 7.0 (Wheezy). GNU Triplet: arm-linux-gnueabihf

  • Arm64Port - the latest port, for the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture. Likely to be released with 8.0 (Jessie). GNU Triplet: aarch64-linux-gnu

Outside of Debian, a notable unofficial port to EABI ARMv6 with hard float is Raspbian, designed for use with the Raspberry Pi.
