Description

This case tests whether a direct deployment of a Fedora image works on an ARM platform.

Setup

  1. Insert or connect the media to write the Fedora ARM disk image.

How to test

You can quite easily prepare the image on the SD card on Fedora or any Linux distribution, MacOS or Windows. The default settings will provide the user interface on a HDMI monitor with keyboard and mouse support

Manually

 xzcat Fedora-IMAGE-NAME.raw.xz | sudo dd status=progress bs=4M of=/dev/XXX # Location of your media (will be sdX or mmcblkX depending on hardware)

Scripted

To install using arm-image-installer:

dnf install -y arm-image-installer

To write the image out use the following:

$ sudo arm-image-installer

Usage: arm-image-installer <options>

   --image=IMAGE    - xz compressed image file name
   --target=TARGET  - target board
   --media=DEVICE   - media device file (/dev/[sdX|mmcblkX])
   --selinux=ON/OFF - Turn SELinux off/on as needed
   --norootpass     - Remove the root password
   -y		    - Assumes yes, will not wait for confirmation
   --version	    - Display version and exit
   --resizefs	    - Resize root filesystem to fill media device
   --addconsole     - Add system console to extlinux.conf
   --addkey=        - /path/to/ssh-public-key

Example: arm-image-installer --image=Fedora-Rawhide.xz --target=Bananapi --media=/dev/mmcblk0

Attach the written medium to the test system and boot it, ensuring the medium takes priority over other boot methods.

Expected Results

  1. The system boots to the initial-setup tool.
