[fedora-arm] Re: Fedora Minimal 36 installation on raspberry pi 2B


You may need to give microdnf a try, as DNF will use all of your 1GB of RAM and get killed by the out-of-memory routines.

# sudo microdnf upgrade --refresh -y

There will be a move to DNF5, which will remove some of the memory pressure and improve speed, but it's not scheduled until Fedora 39.

Please note that Fedora 36 is also the last release for ARMHFP (RPI 2B), if I recall correctly.

I hope this helps!

Hello there,

I'm trying to install Fedora-Minimal-36-1.5.armhfp.raw on my raspberry pi 2B. Installation was a success but the device runs out of memory when trying to install anything via dnf and I get kicked out of the shell.

I've followed the installation instructions in, which specify that this model is supported since Fedora 29; so, is it there anything that I'm missing for Fedora to work?
