I've got Banana Pi M64 on which I am able to run
except for failing WiFi connections to hidden SSID networks and
for kodi being unbearably slow, even the UI and mouse movements.
So seeing Ubuntu MATE not failing completely, I thought I'd give
Fedora a try. I've used
Upon boot I see U-Boot (?) output and EFI lines and then row of Tuxes
and initial boot messages but then my TV goes blank. At no point during
the boot (like grub interface) do I have USB (mouse, keyboard) working.
When I add the dtb symlink to workaround
I see wired networking and DHCP working. Upgrading kernel seems to break
the wired networking
but with all the other packages from updates upgraded, the board still
works including wired networking and DHCP.
The initial-setup.service seems to be looping during the boot and it
seems to also affect dnf operations so I've disabled it.
Is there any opinion about how well can Banana Pi M64 be supported
by Fedora at this point, given that the board seems fine under Ubuntu
MATE but that might include some non-OSS bits that we might not want
Specifically missing at this point seems to be USB support, console
after boot, and WiFi networking. Is there anything which might be useful
