Firstly: with the newest Raspian download I have no issue with the Touchscreen - all works fine!
Now I downloaded Pidora-2014-R3. Created the SD Card with 'Etcher'. No error msg.
When connecting power (with PI3 included adapter - 2.5A) the screen stays blank.
All I see is the red light (the green is NOT blinking as it does when using the Raspian SD Card!).
I do not have any other equipment connected.
What am I missing here?
Thanks for your time and hints, ed
