I don't understand this? What is the problem with the latest RPI-2b? Mine
has been put aside [ 6+ months] since no end of trying Fedora on it has
produced a working XFCE desktop. It seems I need to obtain a different board
if I am to see it work?
Basically there is no upstream mainline Linus kernel support for the
RPi2 (and the original version isn't much better), I tried pulling in
patches to get it working but stopped when the diff got to nearly 100K
lines of patch which is an order of magnitude more than all of the
rest of the kernel patches in the kernel. Basically it's hard to
maintain, it's something that I'll revisit when 4.4 rc1 is out to see
if it's improved but it's not looking good.
Basically the Raspberry Pi organisation has no urge to be a good
citizen in the open source community.
