Re: Pidora armv6hl RPM's: 404?

I'm trying to install openssl-devel and am getting 404's from every mirror I've tried. It looks like the entire armv6hl directory is missing, even on the pidora.ca site: http://pidora.ca/pidora/releases/18/packages/armv6hl bash-4.2# yum install openssl-devel Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refre...

Pidora HowTo ?

Hello fellow Pidora users I am going to write a few articles on how to do different things. Using the Pidora distro, I figured I should start by finding out what you guys really want to know how to do and go from there so post some replies with your ideas and I will start making them.

Re: yum provides something

I'm not very knowledgeable about yum - as expressed in my other thread, I'm working out the translations between Debian-speak and Fedora-speak. If I do something like: yum provides rxvt I get sensible output. Note that I installed rxvt myself recently (via: yum install rxvt) But if I do "yum provid...

Re: Pidora - No Scratch or Idle3 in repo?

OK - think I've sorted this one out with a bit of research IDLE3 in Fedora is contained within the package python3-tools - which IS included in the Pidora repo. So basically run: yum install python3-tools then at the command line run: idle3 and up comes the idle3 Python Shell! Scratch as far as I c...

Re: Pidora 18 (Raspberry Pi Fedora Remix) Release

In Pidora, is there a headless mode way to expand the rootfs to take up the entire SD card without doing remote Xwindows into the Pi? 'Parted' runs on the command line but I don't know how to expand the rootfs with it. If have opened a new topic to answer this question: http://www.raspberrypi.org/p...
