I have created 2 Fedora 21 images for the HummingBoard and Cubox-i. http://vps1.mkreder.com/Fedora-Mate-armhfp-21-5-sda.raw.xz MATE http://vps1.mkreder.com/Fedora-LXDE-armhfp-21-5-sda.raw.xz LXDE I will create a XFCE based image too, soon. In order to extend the root filesystem on this image, you need to run: fdisk /dev/location-of-your-fedora-arm-media << EOF d 3 n p 2001954 w EOF partprobe /dev/location-of-your-fedora-arm-media e2fsck -f /dev/location-of-your-fedora-arm-media3 resize2fs /dev/location-of-your-fedora-arm-media3 More information about Fedora on these boards can be found on this github page

A month ago (or so) we decided to start organizing an event focused on Fedora here in Buenos Aires. The objectives for the event were: Get new contributors for the local Fedora community Grow the interest and show more presence of Fedora on the local community Bring all the ambassadors from Argentina together to talk about FUDCon 2015 Fedora 21 Release Party The organization was good, we thought of all the required tasks and we assigned owners for each one. Eduardo Echeverria (echevemaster) helped a lot by setting up the event’s website.  Leo, Rino, Mariela (our new ambassador) and myself divided the remaining tasks. We met Leo and Fabio who came from Brasil on Wednesday night for an organizational dinner.[…]

Last week I attended CISL. The event was good, several people came to our stand to talk about Fedora and ARM (I brought a HummingBoard and a Raspberry Pi). I had the pleasure of meeting with Jon “maddog” Hall, director of Linux International. We took a picture together and then he told me about the community effort of translating assembler code into C or ASM compatible with ARMv8+ (aarch64). Two candidates to the ambssadors team also came to talk and learn more about FOSS events. La semana pasada estuve en la CISL. El evento estuvo bueno, bastante gente se acerco a nuestro stand a hablar sobre Fedora y ARM . (Yo lleve una HummingBoard y una Raspberry Pi) También tuve[…]

Last month I was gratefully surprised by an email from Germany. Someone  had seen my blog (yay!) and was interested in sending me a Cubox-i or a HummingBoard for free (double yay!). It was hard to make the call, but I decided to request a HummingBoard, mainly because of the GPIO socket (General Purpose Input-Output). GPIO allows you to connect different electronic components to play with them and do robots and other cool things. After several months and several hours doing paperwork in Customs, I finally got it. Compared with the Raspberry Pi, the HummingBoard has more RAM  (1GB versus 512MB), and more CPU (2 cores versus 1) and it also includes a SPDIF audio output. Very grateful with the[…]
