Hello, an interesting discussion is happening on the Fedora devel mailing list about possibly dropping 32-bit ARM (armv7hl) support:
Before proceeding with the idea, I'd like to know what do the ARM people on this list think about it.
Is it crazy, or is it about time?
There is a bug against the Federa Server Edition armhfp installation iso
The F35 build exceeds the current max size of 700 mb (by about 20 mb)
There are obviously 2 options:
(a) reduce the size by removing some packages
(b) Determine a new max size
According to my recent experimentation with aarch64 server iso the arm build is a splendid materialization of the current concept of Fedora Server Edition. Therefore, I'm hesitant to remove packages. I would also have no idea which ones could be dispensable. Therefore, from a user/admin perspective, I would opt to set 750 as the new maximum size and proceed with the current build.
Unfortunately, I am not (yet) familiar with the ARM architecture and have no idea what technical or practical problems or side effects might arise from that.
Therefore I would like to ask the Arm experts here for a recommendation on how to proceed.
Hi! While theoretically should be possible, i would like to hear some
confirmation that f33 can work on odroid N2 ...
Moreover, if it can work, all i have to do is to write the image on
eMMC, isn't it?
Disclaimer: it's my first time playing in arm world, so many things are
strange to me..
Thanks a lot!!
Nicolas Saenz Julienne has contributed a kernel driver for the
Raspberry POE hat fan which is available in 5.13 and newer kernels. I
have 4 RPI4 devices in my home lab running Fedora 34, all powered by
the POE Hat. I was able to get the Hat fan working well with Fedora 34
and the 5.13 kernel. I outline the steps I followed at
for anyone who is interested.
Please note that this process modifies the upstream firmware device
tree file for the RPi4, and that this device tree file is not the same
one Raspberry provides (even though they share the same name).

I suspect it's not the builder that's running out of resources but a
single process exceeding the per process memory limit for 32 bit
