I have successfully installed Fedora 23 on Bananapi. Used https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/ARM/F23/Installation

After installation, the first thing to do is sudo dnf -y update immediately after the initial graphical setup. Else the gdm keeps on crashing.

However, the performance is pathetic. gnome-shell consumes 40% cpu. It looks like there is no hw acceleration.

I do have kernel 3.4.103+ which has the mali and other associated drivers.
Where do I download the latest lemaker kernel source tree so that I can compile the kernel myself?

Have got good success in improving the response time.
1. Replaced workstation image with lxde image. Also tried xfce image which too is faster than the workstation image
2. Used self compiled kernel 3.4.103 for audio
3. Will install fbturbo and vdpau for hw accel - TODO
4. Compile mpv with hw acceleration - TODO
5. Install kodi - TODO


compiled the kernel, vdpau driver, fbturbo, libdri2, libump and mplayer. xorg and Mplayer now works with hw acceleration.
