So I *think* I've got a basic start on a general armv6hl hard float root fs for Fedora. I just posted probably one of my more complicated blog posts this far about bringing up a new arch for Fedora ARM Linux -> http://fossjon.wordpress.com/2012/09/18/bootstrapping-fedora-arm-for-a-ne...
Thanks to the help and support from the people on this list and in channel, I've been able to get this far. My next step is to patch yum && rpm somehow and turn this basic root fs into a koji builder so we can start building for v6hl off to the side for the rasp pi possibly. I haven't done any speed tests at all yet and probably wont be able to for a while until we get a complete image with all the packages cleanly rebuilt -- but were really hoping this thing proves to be much faster and a better user experience overall. The text login (multi-user) boot up seems pretty good so far though. Anyway, I posted a screenshot up above for proof, which is basically me just compiling a v6 binary on the pi and running it. It's pretty cool I guess.
Thanks for your times,
Good day all,
