Now that Fedora 13 and the APC kernel provide basic functionality, a brief summary of where you can get the ‘bits’…
Assumptions: You will need to be reasonably adept at the following:
1. Cross-compiling and patching a Linux / ARM kernel, from source obtained from GitHub.
2. Formatting and partitioning an SD-card (FAT and EXT3..)
3. Installing a Root Filesystem onto the SD-card..
4. Configuring Fedora and YUM to use a specific repository..
So – here are the links:
The APC kernel: https://github.com/apc-io/apc-8750
The Fedora 13 Root Filesystem, and YUM repository info: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/ARM/F13-ARM-Beta2
If you look back through this blog, I have documented how I did most of these tasks, which are common to the installation of many different Linux/ARM systems..
Bear in mind that these components are all out-of-date, but have to be used, as the only available Linux kernel for the APC is based on the equivalent Android 2.3 release, which is built on kernel 18.104.22.168. Newer versions of Fedora/ARM will not work with this ‘old’ kernel.. Fortunately, the old Fedora 13 ARM repository is still available, but this may not be the case for ever, as it was only a short-term development project, which was already out-of-date by the time it was released, and the main Fedora/ARM development focus is now – correctly – on Fedora 17 and later.
