show that it works on real hw
FWIW I have been working for txtr e-book reader folks for 10 months, I
have designed in Fedora as the rootfs for it. ARM Fedora works
excellently. Really solves so many problems you would otherwise have
getting any kind of quality from the rootfs, solid packaging, package
availability by yum and so on.
The non-existency of kernel packages (together with means for their
updating) is another issue that blocks wider adoption. The low level
part (like flashing the kernel and ramdisk to flash memory) can be done
with the flash-kernel utility from Debian, but it still needs an
integration into grubby.
Fedora rootfs basis really really suits being on SD card not raw NAND if
you can help it. With SD you can format the thing ext4 and it's very
hard to tell you are not on a normal Fedora box.
I don't think lack of kernel packages is a problem, when someone targets
a board with Fedora they will naturally make their own kernel package
for the board.
The kernel package I made for txtr simply copies stuff to the name the
bootloader expects in the /boot partition.
