I have a few questions:
- What can be done to promote Fedora ARM?
show that it works on real hw
- Are the koji builds of Fedora updates being pushed into the Fedora
AFAIK no, Fedora/ARM needs to start using koji-shadow
- Is there sufficient interest in armv7 builds to add that as a
the question is what needs to be built as armv7, maybe only few selected
packages will profit from being built as armv7 - like it was in Intel
world - only kernel+glibc+openssl were build as i686 while the rest was
- Can we collect experiences of usage of Fedora ARM (devices,
of use, problems, etc.)?
I own 2 devices based on Marvell Kirkwood - QNAP TS-219 running as a
server (file sharing/koji hub/...) and Sheevaplug as a
I also have a Genesi Efika MX based on Freescale i.MX515 (armv7), but
there is an issue that the kernel support is not yet in upstream.
The non-existency of kernel packages (together with means for their
updating) is another issue that blocks wider adoption. The low level
part (like flashing the kernel and ramdisk to flash memory) can be done
with the flash-kernel utility from Debian, but it still needs an
integration into grubby.
