My intension is to enhance project management (with respect to
electronics) experience while designing hardware with FEL.
So on the FEL Livedvd which is a marketing medium, I wish to give
users an _example_ about how they can use trac and git/svn for
hardware development and track the open tickets. Thereby in the quest
of improving the hardware design methodologies on FEL, and expanding
our marketing portfolio, I wish to hear from you how I can implement
such trac/git/svn session on the LiveDVD if I provide some contents

Ok, so if I get it right, KDE is slow, not FEL apps. I believe this is
what you mean with GUI.
FEL is based on Fedora, the OS. But still we/FEL should not forget
that our goal is to provide EDA solutions and the OS side is
maintained by our colleagues Fedora-KDE and Fedora-devel. It would be
wise to precise here that FEL Livedvd does have numerous services
disabled compared to the Fedora KDE spin.
About LXDE/GNOME/KDE, please don't get me wrong. It is not related to

You can only use gnome if you have fedora installed. You can't run
gnome on the livedvd.
you will find gnome desktop
then yum group-install "gnome-desktop-as defined by grouplist"
I am using Intel pentium 4 PC with 256MB of RAM. Ordinary fedora is not much
slow in my computer. But FEL becomes too slow such a way that nothing can be
done quickly. Is there any solution?
Thanks in advance

Last weekend, I have made a few commits with respect to that group
If my commits pass testing we will have group install for F11. Any
rawhide(Fedora-devel) user will soon (in one day) be able to yum
I have seen you have a fedora rpm for openocd on your download
section. Is it possible for you to provide me with your SRPM please ?
I am willing to include it into Fedora and eventually on the Fedora
Electronic Lab 11 LiveDVD . I would even be happy if you are
willing to package it for fedora and I will guide you through the
I think openocd will be a good asset to the Fedora Electronic Lab
collection and fulfil my users' needs for embedded design.
I'm interested in Linux Embedded since some years.
I talk with Chitlesh at FOSDEM and he invite me to join this mailing
list, I join a bit late so I'm re-opening (restarting) this thread.
In my opinion what FEL can provide is basically three things :
1) all the companion software need to install specific software
2) provide stable version of well known and most used tools
3) provide pre-configured tools for specific hardware
point 1) is about already well done also by standard Fedora, providing
all tool necessary to build ourself a toolchain or another, provide
bitbake and git to make really simple to and use OpenEmbedded so I think
what is maybe missing are just a bounce of packages.
point 2) is important for newbies mainly, when you are starting a
project, be able to test a new tool just installing some packages can
really make the difference. Maybe later when the work become hard could
be necessary to not use preconfigured tools but build ourself or use the
latest (and unstable) ones ... but at least at the beginning all was easy.
point 3) is a step over point 2), I think about two kind of hardware,
official dev-boards and cheap ones. Taking Omap3 as an example the
OMAP35x Evaluation Module (EVM) and the Beagle Board
I'm part of OpenEmbedded project, we try to provide a simple way to
develop for embedded devices. Maybe could not be a good solution to
provide a lot of similar toolchains for different hardware but can be
useful to provide some easy way (script os so) to build toolchains for
well known hardware, during FOSDEM was also shown an Eclipse integration
with BitBake/OpenEmbedded to facilitate many operations.
I'll like to play time to time with small 8bit uC, and have in Fedora
packages ready to use for AVR or MSP430 is a great thing! I would like
to reach the same level also for small uC ARM board (with eCos or
freeRTOS) and maybe also for big devices as BeagleBoard, Neuros OSD2,
Nokia N8x0 and more.

I downloaded Fedora-10-i686-Live-FEL.torrent and downloaded the .iso
successfully with bittorrent. But, md5sum of the downloaded image
varies with that of the SHA1SUM. Can anyone verify that the SHA1SUM is
$ md5sum Fedora-10-i686-Live-FEL/F10-i686-Live-FEL.iso
$ cat Fedora-10-i686-Live-FEL/SHA1SUM

I have a problem installing FEL due to a video problem. The video works up
to the point of selecting the type of installation, and then crashes as it
tries to draw the desktop. I can install with the command line option
Is there a way to select a generic video driver? I have several linux
distributions running on my VM (Fedora 3, Centos 5, Suse, Ubuntu, Puppy),
this is the first to not work. I'm using Paralles running on a Mac

i am sorry, i don't have a useable SRPM. The RPMs on my website contains
additonal non gpl/close source features. Therefor i can not give the source
for it away. The source of the gpl licensed basics of the LayoutEditor is
included in every package as a zip file.
