Thanks for your reply.
So, maybe it is the Fedora-Server-armhfp-26 image that doesn't
include NetworkManager-wifi plugin, that lead me to "Error: No Wi-Fi device
found." issuing the "nmcli device wifi rescan" command.
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa |grep Network
[root@localhost ~]# iwconfig
wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated
Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
I will try minimal image.
Anyway my question is still valid. Is it a simple task to add packages
before inserting the SD card in the raspberry? Or it requires a lot of work
and skills I don't have?
I'm using Fedora 26 on a Raspberry Pi 3.
Is it normal that at each reboot (or shutdown and poweron), the MAC address
of the Ethernet card is each time a different one?
There is a place where to specify the MAC address of the Ethernet card?
I'm looking at building some packages for Fedora ARM. Is there any way
I can use mock on my x86_64 system to cross-compile a package for ARM?
I'm on Fedora 25, but I'm not seeing any cross-compiler options in
mock. If I set arch or target I still get an error that x86_64 is not a
valid platform to build for arm.
A good search seems to show some work done back in 2010 for Fedora 10,
but that's 7-year-old code which I suspect wont work with modern stuff.
So what's the best way (short of building the packages on my poor
low-powered ARM system) to get some packages built. E.g. python-crcmod.

What is the correct way to propose the inclusion of a package in an image?
I think that the command 'nmtui' contained in the package NetworkManager-tui,
could be useful in the Fedora-Server arm image.
Such package is installed by default in the Minimal image (I have not
checked if it is also in the XFCE one).
The market is flooded with $100 or less ARM based tablets (usually
7"), but finding one with unlocked bootloader is a quest....
So any brand/model I should know about?
I was about to buy an ages-old HP touchpad just because I read in the
forums that dual booting android/linux was possible, yet the thought
of just 1GB ram makes me feel uncomfortable, as I know today's Chrome
browser can easily eat up 1GB all by itself.....
And brand name ones (eg Samsung) are way out of my current budget.
I know there must be a niche player somewhere in Shenzen pumping out
ARM tablets with unlocked bootloader....
Any leads/ideas? thanks in advance...
