[fedora-arm] Re: Fedora on ROCK 5 Model B

Thanks Peter

putting FW on SPI works fine, so no SD-Card is needed to boot.

For accelerated graphics I'll wait.

  That won't make any difference.    The support for accelerated graphics isn't upstream yet. There's a few  series of patches that would need to land, at least this one [1], and  one to support HDMI, possibly more. Looking at [1] I doubt that will  now land for 6.8, the rule of thumb is usually it has to be accepted  by rc5 of the previous cycle, so we'd be looking at 6.9 at the  earliest assuming any other patch series also land, it'll also need  patches for device tree. You could collect the patch series together  and build a kernel if you want it before then.    
2. Boot    Is there any way to boot Fedora direct from NVME instead using rock-5b_UEFI_Release_v0.9.1.img on SD-Card ?  
  You need to put the FW on the SPI flash, not sure if the firmware  supports that yet, but there's confirmation it'll work at some point  in their FAQ:  https://wiki.radxa.com/Rock5/FAQs#Q:_Without_eMMC_and_TF_card.2C_can_ROCK_5B_boot_from_PCIe_M.2_NVME_SSD.3F    [1] https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2023-December/434211.html  --  _______________________________________________  arm mailing list -- arm@lists.fedoraproject.org  To unsubscribe send an email to arm-leave@lists.fedoraproject.org  Fedora Code of Conduct: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/project/code-of-conduct/  List Guidelines: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines  List Archives: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/arm@lists.fedoraproject.org  Do not reply to spam, report it: https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/new_issue
