[edit] Release Notes

[edit] Supported Architecture

  • This release supports the ARM v5 architecture, little-endian, gnueabi, with thumb interworking (armv5tel). It will work on higher architecture versions but is not fully optimized for them. Popular supported devices include:
  • This release does not support armv4 and lower architecture versions. This means that it does not work on device including:

[edit] Kernel

  • The Fedora ARM project does not currently provide a kernel. You will need to provide a kernel suitable for your device (either the one provided with the device, or one compiled for your device). Here are kernels suitable for some common ARM development devices:

[edit] Included Packages

  • A comparision of the packages included in this beta release with the versions included in the primary 32-bit architecture (i686)
  • Notable package sets not included or incomplete in the beta include, gstreamer, and KDE.
  • Some languages (Ocaml, Haskell) do not yet suport ARM (in the versions used in F13). Therefore, any packages written in these languages are not yet available.
  • Work is continuing on the remaining packages.

[edit] Using the Beta Release

  • The beta release is a tarball of a minimal root filesystem. When coupled with a suitable kernel, it provides sufficient tools for login, network setup (wired or wireless), and software installation/removal via yum.
  • Instructions for setting up Fedora ARM on a device
  • The default root password is: fedoraarm

[edit] Known Issues

[edit] PandaBoard Serial Login

  • On PanadaBoards, no login prompt appears on the serial console. As a temporary workaround, uncomment the lines in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
