[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.
