Hi asb, that landed in 2.6.26 and the F15 PA GA kernel was 2.6.28 -- so we're good.

See the commit, it didn't get wired up for ARM until after 2.6.35. If you're not getting issues with accept4 and later udevd then fine, just thought I'd share something I ran in to when running more bleeding edge Debian builds.
Edit: Re-read, I think you're saying you can just use the stock 2.6.38 Fedora kernel. Of course that includes the fix, but you'd have to port the raspi kernel patches (likely not that hard though).

Sorry, I meant .36 and .38 not .26 and .28 as I wrote, and I understand now what you were saying (.36 for systemd vs what was in the video). I'm going to try patching 3.0.4...

Does Fedora-ARM supports some other languages besides European languages?
Just out of curiosity, Fedora 13 & 15 were mentioned earlier on in the thread. You are now presenting the 14 remix Any special reason or did this version just fit the hardware better with the time constraints? Will this be the version on the sd card on release day?
If so, I need to brush up on Fedora, as I have not used it in several years.
As it's nearly 2am here, I'll not expect to see the amendments in the Wiki and the FAQ for a few hours
Does that mean that the Raspberry will be shipped with an outdated, unofficial platform, unsupported linux distribution ? ( https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/announce/2011-December/003023.html )
On the other hand, Debian support Arm officially in its current release and every others ...
That doesn't sound very professional.
I hope that for the educational release they will get at least Fedora 17 and that release will be officially supported by the Fedora Project. Because I'm very concerned about what they will learn about security from being in an unsupported environment. Yeah you know, in a production environment choosing the most secure environment, that's not that much of a concern.
The OLPC support just a little fraction of the fedora project AFAIK, and they can do the support themselves. The fact that they are using it is not that relevant if everyone can install the entire Fedora Repository.
I don't think you will be leaving us without security updates, but the only fact that every students can go to wikipedia or the fedora website and see "unsupported" is wrong. We should take learning security habits more seriously.
The only fact that the big x86 market will not be contributing to security fixes on this release anymore is a concern.
I imagine the teacher saying "always check that your softwares are up to date ! Or in fact, well ... If it's possible ..."
If Fedora is not the official distribution for the Raspberry it's not a problem and it's pretty great to know that you are working actively on the fedora arm project, this will help to build a better future, but I will not recommend that release for a production environment ... AT ALL !
