And ??

Tried this twice and it doesn't work for me. Pi 2B starts to boot and both times I end up with

Code: Select all

Welcome to emergency mode! After logging in, type "journalctl -xb" to view
system logs, "systemctl reboot" to reboot, "systemctl default" or ^D to
try again to boot into default mode.
Give root password for maintenance
(or press Control-D to continue): 
whatever root password is.

Created SD card on a Pi 2B with SD card reader to access card used to generate fedora image.

Checked the /var/log/boot.log file on the Fedora image and for whatever reason it shows

Code: Select all

i took a look at the wiki and must say first that it's great that someone took the effort to write up a Fedora spin for ARM...

on the other hand, the install seems needlessly complicated - i think more users would enjoy Fedora if the install were via a crafted image... the install could then be as simple as:

sudo ddrescue --force fedora_arm_version_xxx.img /dev/sda

(assuming /dev/sda holds an unmounted microsdhc in a usb carrier) ... the system could then be expanded after rebooting

just my US$0.03 (adjusted for inflation)

p.s. i use ddrescue quite a bit - very easy to backup a running system:

sudo ddrescue --force /dev/mmcblk0 /dev/sda

(i make sure to back up onto or from same-size, same-manufacturer, same-brand cards - generally Samsung EVO+ 32GB)

Re: STICKY: Pignus / Fedora / Fedberry / Suse SEPT '17

Has anyone been able to make the Fedora 27 aarch64 images work? I get nothing but a blank screen after the boot menu, tried usual stuff like another card, reflash, checked sha256sum etc... no joy.

Turns out... it takes awhile to boot... :lol: came back to find the screen had eventually reappeared and finished booting. Patience is the key, removing the Plymouth packages (that do the pretty booting page) gives you a bit more "feedback" if you're just making minimal headless boxes but it really is just chugging away in there one way or another.
