Is there such a thing available? So far I have been working with a 
Sheeva Plug which is ARMv5 (Marvell Kirkwood) based, so the armv5tel was 
a good match.

But this morning, my Genesi Efika Smartbook arrived in the post, which 
is ARMv7 (Freescale i.MX515 Cortex-A8), and I think there might be 
considerably more performance to be extracted from it if an ARMv7 
compiled distro is used. I have found mentions of a F10 armv7l build for 
a Beagle Board, but I was hoping for a more recent distro. Is there such 
a thing available with a recent version of Fedora (ideally F12)? Or am I 
going to have to build one myself?
