Re: Fedora 21 REMIX for Raspbery Pi 2B

Sat Apr 04, 2015 6:01 am

I have downloaded and installed both the lxde and the minimal and while i am impressed at how fast they both boot i was not able to log in to the lxde nor the minimal using "fidora" as user and password. is there a different password or user for these two ? there was no option for first setup as it went on first boot straight to the login.

I was wondering if the glxinfo string should say this:
OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe...

Shouldn't it mention that videocore is being used instead of software rendering?

I think the default password is for root:

user: root
password: fidora

From the first page:
Unlike the official Fedora images, a "default" root password, ("fidora"), is already set.
I would help more but I used the KDE image, and I had an option to setup a user and choose a root password during the install.

Thanks for the great work on this !!

Im using XFCE image, and it is perfect !
It boots right into the graphic login screen, where you can login as root using fidora as password.

Make a user account, log in to that, and do a system update. (theres a lot)

Its like Amiga, all over again :D

hi,
i have been able to copy the image "Pi2B-Fedora-Xfce-armhfp-21-5-20150219-1-sda.raw" to sd card and boot the system. But the desktop resolution is very low, and not able to change from "display" menu. Looks the vedio driver is not load? could help to let me know how to solve this?

RTFM ?

There is a file called "config.txt" as in "/boot/config.txt" ....
Modify it to your needs, according to the documentation .

You might want to read this
http://elinux.org/RPiconfig#Video_mode_options

Since i am using "remote desktop" to the RPI, i use these settings in my config.txt for a 720p resolution, that can fit on my 1024p desktop size, as a window.
And on my TV/monitor if needed.

disable_overscan=1
hdmi_group=1
hdmi_mode=4

I am trying out different amount of Graphic memory, this is the most amount of memory i have ever used

gpu_mem=320

-using gpu_mem=256 seems to work fine too

Default framebuffer depth is 16 bit, which i use

framebuffer_depth=16

Change to ex. 24 if you want more colors.

hi Nucleus_dk,
Thanks. I was trying with cvt , xrandr (--newmode, --addmode), and the resolution can be applied with a bigger value. But seems still be not able to set to a max resolution of my tv. I will try with your update to test. :D

Looks like the link is dead?
I installed it before, but liked to reinstall from scratch.
(Basically because I can't get x11vnc to work, and I expect to have damaged something. But maybe x11vnc does not run on this image. If so, any idea for alternative?)
Oh, and why I switched from raspbian to fidora? Raspbian does support hrtimers on the Pi model B, but not on de model 2 for some strange reason I could not find. Raspbian on Pi2 reports 10ms timer resolution.

Thanks!
[Edit: When I read it back, I see there is no real question. So:
Anyone knows why the link is gone? Next question: Why does it take so long for the 'official' pidora for RPi2?]

Looks like the download links are down for a few days. Does someone knows something about it?
Also does someone have a mirror or can upload the images somewhere?

Thanks

I have a script that gives you a running Fedora21 Remix for RPi2
  • Stock Fedora21 Remixed for RPi2
  • Includes rpi-update
  • Automated partitioning and setup
Currently tested with the Minimal image
RPi2-Fedora21Remix
Download, chmod +x, run as root.
If you want to run a version besides Minimal, please contact me for further details

Thanks - did try quickly, but no success. (I read it uses x11vnc, but maybe I misinterpreted that quote.) I installed it, run it as root, disable firewall on windows and start the remote desktop program, but it could not connect.
As I can not put too much time in two projects to get a remote desktop, I skip this road for now. (Unless there is a foolproof doc somewhere.) I am trying to compile x11vnc, will post about that below. Thanks again anyway!

In case anyone is still interested in this, the new URL for the downloads are here
http://www.digitaldreamtime.co.uk/Fedora/

Also, the minimal image credentials are root : fedora
However they only work from SSH, not via the console.
I should add that once I changed the root password, I could then login at the console.

Regards

Return to “Pidora / Fedora”
