I've gone with the Raspbian release (it smells horrible like Debian).
I can't wait to get this little puppy running RHEL.
As Peter said, never RHEL, but...
I have Redsleeve 6 (Centos 6 for arm port) running on Cubieboard 2 & 3
by using the F19 remix kernel. You can see how I did this at:
The challenge has been EPEL6-arm. The maintainer went away and it is
static. For some things that were no-arch, I was able to pull the rpms
from the EPEL6-x86 repo and do a localinstall.
Centos 7 is more likely. There is a mailing list for Centos-arm
development. At some point there will be some builds.
Apologies Peter - I thought I replied to the list!
