So, I was able to install Fedora on the Pinebook Pro following the blog
The only difference is that I was unable to boot the installer from an
USB stick, and I used dd to copy the content of the SD card to eMMC.
The only annoying problem that I'm facing is that I can't reboot the
Pinebook. I can reboot, sure, indeed, connecting through the serial
port, the system actually reboot, but the video becomes black with some
horizontal lines .
Powering off the system, then on, the screen is ok.
What could it be?
(sorry for the bad quality, but you can see these lines in the center
of the display).
we decided it's time to rethink our needs and redesign Fedora main website from scratch.
I would like to encourage your team to take a part in this initiative and work on this together as we need to make sure that we have everybody on board and all needs are taken into consideration.
Based on initial input I gather from Fedora forum and meeting with Matthew I prepared one page with summary of what we are going to do and it's available here https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Websites/Fedora_Website_Revamp
It's possible I'll move it to other place in the future but for now it will be our workspace.
As a short term strategy I would like you to choose one representative from your team for upcoming kick-off meeting with other stakeholders and send me directly details like name, Feroda ID and e-mail address. It will be much easier for me to contact chosen person having this. Please try to do this by 30th June. I'm aware holiday period started and probably not everyone will be available but let's try to do our best and push forward this exciting initiative :)
When I have all participants gathered I'll try to find common slot to organize session for us. Agenda will be included in invitation.
Main goal of this kick-off will be to discuss known facts, go through goals, assumptions and requirements and also plan next steps for next couple of weeks.
I'll propose long term strategy, approach and wider plan after meeting with all of you.
Please read in advance https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Websites/Fedora_Website_Revamp and if you already have some requests, suggestion please send it to your representative and then each person can send it to me before kick-off. Taking into consideration we will have huge amount of stakeholders I don't see other way to work on this than having one person from each team, I hope you understand.
Looking forward to work with all of you.
Adding back arm list.

> Fascinating, this stuff. I read this as meaning that the technical causes / problems have now been clarified, "only" the technically correct implementation in the drivers is now missing. Do you have any idea how long we might have to wait? Half a year, a year, or longer?
So someone kindly had some time and capabilities to finally dig into
this, we'll be supporting it in rawhide/F-35 as of next week's kernel
Generally though if it's an upstream problem we can't necessarily give
a time line for fixing these sorts of things as they often need access
to the hardware and possibly even HW manuals which aren't always
available or need tight NDAs so the general rule of thumb is "when
someone with the time, skill and appropriate access has the time".

> I happen to have got a model A revision 1.4 It has the SPI chip already soldered. It is a XT25F32BW01G on my board. Do you know if the eMMC chip works so that I can boot Fedora from it? From what I found in the general documentation, it should work. It doesn't seem to depend on SPI, but both are queried via ROM. But after so many nasty surprises so far …
The eMMC has worked on these devices for some time, no idea what's
that got to do with SPI though, they are completely independent. Maybe
you can clarify what you mean here.
