I downloaded Fedora-Xfce-armhfp-21-20140722-sda.raw.xz and installed it 
to a 16Gb microSD card by:

[root at lx120e ~]# 
/home/rgm/fedora-arm-image-installer/fedora-arm-image-installer.sh 
--image=/home/rgm/Fedora-Xfce-armhfp-21-20140722-sda.raw.xz 
--target=Cubietruck --media=/dev/sdb


=====================================================
= Selected Image:
= /home/rgm/Fedora-Xfce-armhfp-21-20140722-sda.raw.xz
= Selected Media : /dev/sdb
= U-Boot Target : Cubietruck

When I put the microSD card into the Cubie2 I have a keyboard and mouse 
on a USB hub, HDMI video plugged in and ethernet to the hotel ethernet 
(I am at IETF in Toronto).

and power up, nothing seems to happen. I do not have my serial stuff 
with me to see what the console is reporting. The system boots up fine 
with same connections with the 8Gb microSD card I built with the F20 remix.

Now what? I have plenty of microSD cards (8 & 16 Gb) to try installing 
on. But I do have to quit for the night soon. Morning sessions come all 
too soon.
