Anyone who love Fedora can have the latest Fedora 21 a try.
We use the F21 minimal image here for our telescope and camera control, works fine The two Banana Pi you've sent us in August use this now and the first publication of our student astronomical control project will follow soon. As I'm a Fedora developer too I'm packaging all control stuff for observatories now, Banana Pi with Fedora will be the official solution for the project.

Hi all

I downloaded also the FC 21 beta with XFCE. Basically it works (based on the results I've seen in /var/log/messages). Can someone give me a hint how to enable HDMI output while booting?

I already run Fedora-21 that I installed through BerryBoot.

BerryBoot was the ONLY thing that started when written to the SD card among all the other choices.

Meanwhile there have been some big fat updates of some hunderd MBs ...

[root@banana ~]# cat /etc/fedora-release
Fedora release 21 (Twenty One)
[root@banana ~]# rpm -qa| grep kernel

* Automounter works fine ... so files can be shared
* ISCSI fails badly ... so no access to disks at device level ...
