Porting Fedora to 64-bit ARM systems

An introduction to the Fedora ARM Project

This talk introduces the Fedora ARM Project and in particular the work we are doing to bring Fedora to emerging 64-bit ARM server systems.

Fedora is a popular Linux distribution on desktop and server-class systems. The Fedora ARM Project brings Fedora to ARM-powered systems - both existing 32-bit and emerging 64-bit. We are presently engaged in a full bootstrap effort to the new 64-bit architecture. This talk will include a live demonstration of Fedora running on 64-bit ARM hardware along with a detailed description of the process of bootstrapping a general purpose Linux distribution from scratch.
