Updated the Raspberry Pi to kernel 3.9.9, and everything seems to work OK..
Pidora 18 (Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix)
Kernel 3.9.9-pi on an armv6l (ttyAMA0)
I have been using the ‘official’ Fedora ARM repository for updates, but now it seems that Fedora 18 is the last version that will support the armv5tel version.. Fedora 19 and beyond are armv7hl only, which does not support the Pi CPU..
So.. I tried Pidora, in the hope that this would provide a way forward… I got the base install running OK, but this is a non-standard armv6hl version, which is only available from Pidora. This would be OK, but their versions of apps are somewhat ‘out of date’, and the Pidora YUM repository has been 404 for days now.. This seems to be a recurring problem, judging by posts on various forums..
So now… I will be going back to my original F18 armv5tel version, which will – at least – still get updates, until the release of Fedora 20, when it will be officially EOL (End Of Life).
Update: The Pidora repositories appeared online again, but yum just hung – repeatedly – after –> Finished Dependency Resolution, despite running # yum clean all, and (manually!) reinstalling it… Not impressed..
Hopefully Pidora will overcome their problems, and eventually provide support for F19 and beyond..
