Fedora 26 on new RPi3 B+ ...?

UPDATE: I realized i had an older [June 2017] rpi3-u-boot.bin in the boot partition. Need to update that - doh - expecting it will cure the issue.

Subject says it. I'm trying to boot a known-working (on an RPi3 B) Fedora 26 image on my new RPi3 B+ (yes, I'm using an official RPi 2.5A power supply) but only get the rainbow screen and the four slow / four fast LED blinks. According to this sticky:

viewtopic.php?t=58151

"If you have one of the latest PI 3B+ which won't boot and it keeps stuck on the rainbow screen, while also displaying the under voltage (lightening bolt) icon, then you are simply are using boot code that is too old. Please download the very latest version of Raspbian, or do an upgrade to it....Other OS's users might have to wait for their OS to get an upgrade."


So...is Fedora 26 in that category, and I just need to wait? Or has anyone found the secret sauce to get it to boot? Or do I just need to give up and move to Raspbian?

thanks! /TSG/

Yeah, update your firmware (when it's available) with the rpi-firmware-update command:

Code: Select all

[[email protected] ~]$ sudo rpi-firmware-update
[sudo] password for user: 

= This will update U-Boot and the 
= Raspberry Pi Firmware to the latest.

= Uboot: uboot-images-armv7-2017.09-5.fc27.noarch
= Firmware: bcm283x-firmware-20171201-1.9426e18.fc27.armv7hl

== Complete!
Right now supporting firmware on fedora hasn't been released. Nullr0ute maintains this, you can follow: https://nullr0ute.com/

Has anyone got F27 to run on the 3B+ yet? Or we still waiting for the firmware packages to update?

Cheers,

I installed Fedora 27, but is is VERY VERY slow.

Not sure why? Raspian runs great.

I cannot install Fedora 28. After the reboot my screen goes black.

Not sure why.

Try the new 29 beta:
https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora ... h64.raw.xz

It has the new kernel 4.18 with better 3b+ support.
But GNOME is the desktop environment... so you should install LXDE (like Raspbian) or Xfce.
