Raspberry Pi school computer to run cut-down Fedora

Filed under

Hardware

Early adopters of the Raspberry Pi $25 computer will be offered a cut down and customised Fedora ‘remix’ compiled to run on the system’s ARM microprocessor, it has been confirmed.

The first Raspberry Pi is just bare circuit board for now but developers at Toronto’s Seneca College have worked hard to fit a Fedora image on to a 2GB SD card to boot the computer into a GUI, complete with a small suite of applications and admin tools.

The environment is fairly basic on one level – just a word processor, Firefox and support for several programming languages – and the team admits it has yet to hook the 2D graphics in the remix into the powerful graphics hardware on the Raspberry Pi.
