Adventures Building Fedora-ARM

Chris Tyler

Fedora is a leading cutting-edge distribution; ARM is the most popular CPU architecture in the world, best known for powering low-energy mobile devices. The Fedora-ARM secondary architecture project is bringing the Fedora package collection to emerging ARM devices, ranging from the next version of the One Laptop Per Child XO to massive, environmentally-friendly data centre systems.

This paper highlights the challenges and opportunities presented by the ARM architecture, the reasons for building Fedora for ARM, lessons learned during the process, and the significant changes that are approaching as ARM systems become more prevalent.
