Fedora 12 on Nokia N900
 
I have Fedora 12 up and running on my Nokia N900.

It's only in console mode at the moment, but it boots up. :)

I will write up a mini HOWTO and put it here:

Please get Android working next or Ubuntu! Anyway, keep cranking out the good work.

Thanks for this!

"Easy Debian" will also work quite well for the chroot portion of setting up a Fedora rootfs...

Have they fixed the bug in Yum that makes it fail on ARM processors?

I tried previous Fedora versions, but they had ported so few apps to their repos that I gave up...

I'm not aware of any ARM yum bug. I was able to use it fine.

I was able to install all of X and XFCE. The repo seems to be a decent size now.

Of course, you can't recharge the battery and the keymap is pretty broken in the console (just letters, more or less), but this is also true of Mer.

i noticed on your guide for mer..that you are using ext3 partition scheme..isnt it advisable for solid media to use ext2 and journalising the data is not needed on mmc as read times are really fast in bursts..ext3 will slow down the performance?

You could be right. I don't have a good answer to that. I do know that fscking would be faster with ext3 (if i'm not mistaken) and I seem to fsck it a lot. ;)

Would you mind updating your wiki for the new FW and kernels?
I tried this this evening but came unstuck.
