Unofficial Fedora remixes are available for additional targets including the Raspberry Pi and other popular devices.

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.
