Re: Devel Digest, Vol 132, Issue 2

Has anyone tested a current fedora release on an XO model? It would seem
reasonable to install Fedora with the gnome desktop independent of Sugar
as a starting point.

Why don't you actually read the thread you're replying to. Userspace
will be fine, needs kernel work as they need a newer kernel.

The ARM XOs could actually as of Fedora 26 run with a completely open
userspace with the entaviv kernel if someone does the work for those
devices to boot on a current kernel. In theory the XO 1.75 would just
need a devicetree plus driver upstreaming. The 1.5 might work OOTB but
there are some drivers that were never upstreamed.

Hi, Peter

Sorry, must be age creeping up. I certainly thought I had read the email.

Yet as I read your text the phrases: 'could actually run', 'would just
need', and  'might work OOTB' suggests the need for some testing.

Generally, the best place to start fixing is to locate the problem as
exactly as possible.

Yes, but that needs time, and that I don't have as stated in the
thread previously. So was giving general direction for those that
might have the time/interest/ability.
