How to Install
The easiest way to get started is to download a prebuilt root filesystem built from F12 packages that includes yum. This is suitable to chroot into, and then installing additional packages as needed using yum. You will also need a suitable kernel for your device. Below is a list of guides for installing Fedora on specific ARM hardware or through emulation.
