Is Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix 18 going to be armhf? I think I've plowed through every post in this forum but haven't seen any indication that it's going to be anything other than armel. I'm actually interested in trying out Tomcat but need to know what my javavm options are going to be.

I'm wondering the same thing. Currently have a sd card with Fedora 18 beta 2 on it. Is there a way you can tell this via the command line (maybe via uname -a)?

Since I am not up to speed with my ARM terminology, I don't know the difference between armel and armhf. The most recently updated kernel shows this:
Code: Select all
[root@nemo ~]# uname -a
Linux nemo 3.6.11+ #362 PREEMPT Tue Jan 22 14:52:21 GMT 2013 armv6l armv6l armv6l GNU/Linux


When I am doing anything in yum, I see only armv5tel and a quick rpm query confirms it:
Code: Select all
[root@nemo ~]# rpm -aq --queryformat '%{ARCH}\n' | sort | uniq
armv5tel
noarch
(none)


Maybe browse around through one of the repository mirrors just to see what packages are available? Both look to have the same versions of OpenJDK and Tomcat available to me:
http://mirrors.rit.edu/fedora-secondary/updates/18/arm/
http://mirrors.rit.edu/fedora-secondary ... 18/armhfp/

And, isn't the difference between alpha, beta and final release really just a yum update away anyway?

I believe arm*el is soft float.
