I have the following device: DIY Laptop by Olimex
It is a 2GB A64 Cortex A53 Quad core 64-bit processor based.
There are several options for running Linux on it, but Fedora is not among them
I did not manage to run the latest stable Fedora on it.
What was the problem exactly? I have a PINE64, which is also a 2GB
A64 laptop. I used F30 minimal and later installed LXDE. The screen
brightness defaulted to 0, which made it difficult to go through the
firstboot menu. :-)
My solution was to finish the firstboot on an rPi3, update, and build
a multi-platform initrd to boot the micro-SD back on the pine64.
Some of the peripherals haven't made it to mainline yet for PINE64:
1) internal wifi/bluetooth (I use a dongle)
2) CPU scaling (it's still faster than my XO-1)
3) HDMI port (actually seems to be upstream, but isn't working for ME)
How can I help with getting Fedora on this laptop? Is there a how-to
for getting this to run?
Here are my few notes:
