Fedora on an HC1

Unread postby rgmhtt » Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:05 am

First to learn about Fedora arm, go to:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architec ... stallation

Note that Odroid is not among the directly supported boards for Fedora arm because they cannot distribute the Hardkernel bootloader. Or so they say. But it works with only a little extra effort.

The Fedora 29 images are at:

http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora- ... velopment/

Get either the Server or Minimal image.

Follow the instructions at:

https://blog.christophersmart.com/2018/ ... nas-armv7/

(I will be writing my own that skips the problems with old F27)

Note to get the current uboot from the image you install on the uSD card for using with the Hardkernel script.

Boot and you are on your way. You WILL need your serial console. Fedora has an initial setup set of prompts you have to go through.

It is easy to have the rootfs partition on the sata drive.

Before booting with the uSD card, delete the rootfs partition, don't bother growing it.
Run the installer to a sata drive and delete the boot partition, then grow the rootfs partition (I am lazy and use gparted).
Insert the uSD and sata drive and boot.

Currently cannot put the boot partition on sata. I am researching that. It should be possible with the right uboot.

uboot needs to be on sd/emmc for the board to boot.

Perhaps I was not clear. Where I say to delete the rootfs partition from the uSD card, that is after following all the steps on Chris Smart's blog. This includes installing the bootloader and uboot on the uSD card, along with the Fedora image.

Oh, and appending a number of options to extlinux.conf. And he has the path wrong, it should be:

/mnt/__boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf

Or however you have mounted the partition.

For the sata drive, you only install the Fedora image, the delete the boot partition. Since the Fedora install uses dd, all copies have the same uuid for the partitions, which is what makes this so easy.

So yes, uboot is indeed on the uSD card.
