The first Release Candidate for Fedora 21 Alpha for Power is now
There are Server iso and network install images for both ppc64 and
ppc64le as part of the Fedora Server WG. Cloud and Workstation trees
are not provided at this time.
Please report all bugs against the PPC F21 alpha blocker bug .
All packages are now signed.
This new alpha appears to be in much better shape - thanks to everyone
for putting in so much hard work!
1) The server DVD boots correctly into the kernel on my G5 iMac, but then
appears to run into https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1010538
(or a ppc64-specific complication of that bug).
This prevents Anaconda from coming up.
2) I ran into the same issue after upgrading a F20 Mate installation
on the same box (via
yum --releaserver=21 distro-sync --nogpgcheck -y
The --nogpgcheck is no longer required, but I'd done the update
midweek, prior to your post.
There was a dependency error between the F21 glibc and the F20e
ppc32 glibc pre-reqs for yaboot. On irc, sharkcz advised me to
remove yaboot and its 2 ppc32 dependencies first, and that allowed
the upgrade (1GB download) to start.
It's rather tantalizing, as the plymouth screen is fully displayed
before the modemmanger bug takes things down. It appears that the
new grub2 setup may well we fully functional on my Mac G5!
I've created https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1151853
blocked the F21 blocker bug.
