Just a note to say that I installed the Fedora KDE arm image on my RPi 3
from the link below using a Kingston class 10 SD card and it is running
After the second boot, I opened a console and did a 'dnf update'. With a
fast ethernet connection, it has taken nearly 12 hours to complete. It is
currently in the 'top' shows nothing CPU usage to be 2.3% for the top
process and nothing much for anthing else. The dnf process occasionally
pops up in the top list, using less than 1% of the cpu, though about 18% of
Is there a zombie thread running somewhere ?
I'll investigate further once the update process is complete.
BTW: kudos for bringing Fedora to the RPi platform. I'm so happy not to be
building custom kernels and to be running the same distribution I use on my
other computers. Keep up the good work !
We're currently testing Alpha 1.4 (details below), with Alpha 1.7 in
progress now (RC6 failed during compose).
Please add armhfp test results here:
Please add aarch64 test results here:
I'll send out RC7 details once the compose has finished.

I am attempting an install of
Not too successful right now, as the 4Gb mSD cards I have with me are
only 3.9Gb, not the 4Gb needed. So this project is on hold until I get

What is partition 1 all about?
I'm Thomas Ingram, a second year CS student hoping to get into GSoC
this year, and really hoping to work with Fedora! I'm a longtime Fedora
and GNU/Linux user and have always wanted to contribute.
I am interested in helping migrate Plinth to Fedora server. I've been
following the FreedomBox project for a while. I think it's a great way
to provide a self hosted free software alternative to many web
Experience wise I have a good understanding of dnf, Python, and Git. I
have a small amount of experience with Django, and a basic
understanding of rpm and deb packaging. I also have a Raspberry Pi 2
and would be willing to get other arm devices for testing if needed.
I'm very excited about the prospect of working with Fedora and free
software and would be happy to take extra time to learn in the area's I
So far I have made FAS account, wondering what groups I should apply to
join in order to get started on my wiki pages? Any other feedback would
