are some people that have Fedora running on the Vamrs Rock960, but arm-image-installer
doesn't list the board on the supported list. Does anyone have some notes on how they
got Fedora running on the board?
Yes, I have Fedora 29 running on the Rock960. There's a few caveats,
we don't currently have support for PCI-e or the onboard WiFi/BT
module, I'm working with the 96boards crew to get that resolved soon.
The reason it's not listed in arm-image-installer is that we can't
currently write out the firmware with that method, and this is the
current remaining big issue. We need to improve this for all the
rockchips based devices and that's on my todo list for February.
Thanks for the information. As far as the caveats I am not using PCI-e or WiFi/BT, so
neither of those are going to be an issue for me. I figured that there was some reason
for arm-image-installer not having the rock960 listed and was looking for notes on the
alternative method being used to get Fedora to boot up on the rock960. If there is going
to be some generally available arm-image-installer update in February I can wait a bit
longer. However, I am a willing to test out beta versions of the software.
