Random hacking notes for getting Fedora 10 to kinda work with the BeagleBoard. ;)

and use one of my CC* images..


Patch fedora 10 root file system

Note: patch isn't installed, so patch these before your boot.

Note; this can be improved by patching rpm directly and rebuilding, however just to get things running this is fine.

Building packages

in most cases build your packages for armv5... (not everything works when built as armv7l)

rpmbuild -ba --target armv5tel dejagnu.spec


Note; this is just my first pass at rebuilding all rpm's, so things are bound to break, and they will, and they have. So only dive in head first if you don't mind.

Add to fedora.repo

name=Fedora armv7l
