I have a draft of the instructions for using livemedia-creator
(Anaconda/Lorax) for creating a disk image on ARM:
I have only tested this on the Trim Slice, and it seems to work well.
This assumes you have adequate backing storage (hard disk) to hold the
resulting images. If the host system does not have a hard drive, some
alternate storage may need to be set up to hold the disk image (i.e.,
NFS or iSCSI).
Although other ARM platforms should be recognized by Anaconda/Lorax, I
don't have any specific U-Boot scripts or templates set up for them yet.
Note: I am trying to get these changes upstream, but they will not be
accepted in F17 (too late in the cycle), so I am keeping them in a
separate repo for testing.
Please let me know if you have any questions or have suggestions for

Devkit8000 is a BeagleBoard clone that has an Enthernet interface.
I've installed Fedora 14 ARM as described in
http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardFedora using the following command:
$ sudo ./mk_mmc.sh --mmc /dev/sdb --uboot beagle_xm
Early on boot I see this message:
Net: Net Initialization Skipped
No ethernet found.
Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0
I'm able to login as root but I can not bring up the network:
# modprobe dm9000
[ 275.382568] dm9000 Ethernet Driver, V1.31
# ifup eth0
Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
In the original Angstrom image that came with the board, the network
is identified during boot and works fine:
brd: module loaded
loop: module loaded
dm9000 Ethernet Driver, V1.31
eth0: dm9000a at c88ae000,c88b2400 IRQ 185 MAC: 00:11:22:33:44:55 (chip)
I used "--uboot beagle_xm" because it also has Enthernet interface,
but I tried with "beagle_bx" and "beagle_cx" with the same results.
Any help is welcome. Thanks.
