Introduction

ARM chips are the most widely-produced processor family in the world; they have historically been used in cell phones and embedded applications, and are increasingly used in tablet devices and low-power-consumption servers.

The Fedora-ARM project is an initiative to bring Fedora to this processor family.

Download the Latest Stable Release

Fedora 20

This is the most recent stable release of Fedora. These images have been tested and are recommended for most users and includes Versatile Express (QEMU), Trimslice, Beaglebone Black, Wandboard, Highbank and Midway based hardware platforms. The full release announcement can be found here. Board specific images and installation instructions:

Fedora for ARM - Releases and Remixes

If you are looking to use Fedora on a device that isn't mentioned above it may not have official support due to licensing issues or lack of upstream support. Unofficial Fedora remixes are available for additional targets including many of the latest devices.

Raspberry Pi

Pidora, the optimized Fedora Remix released by Seneca College can be found at http://pidora.ca/ .

Creating a Fedora Remix for ARM

Many ARM boards are not yet fully supported in the upstream kernel - by using this guide you can create your own Fedora ARM disk image.

Download the Latest Development Release

These images are intended for development use.

Bug Reporting

Arm specific bugs should be reported in Bugzilla and linked to the ARM tracker. If the bug is considered a Blocker Bug or Freeze Exception it should also be linked to the current Fedora release.

For assistance troubleshooting ARM specific bugs visit #fedora-arm[?] on http://freenode.net or contact the arm mailing list.

AArch64

AArch64 is the name for the new 64-bit ARM architecture, also known as ARMv8. For information regarding this exciting new architecture please visit the AARCH64 wiki.

Technical Talks

We host semi-regular ARM Tech Talks on #fedora-arm and #fedora-arm-talks (FreeNode). The topics are varied, and have included ARM processor errata (cache controller specifics), debugging kernels with gdb, and how to install Fedora on a Google Chromebook. You can give a talk by signing up on the ARM Tech Talks page.
