Hi,

I also tried the latest rawhide beta. This one has X11 support.
See this procedure.
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/A ... awhide/Installation
For installing uboot mount the sd card on a linux PC then do
sudo dd if=/tmp/root/usr/share/uboot/BananaPi/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/<media-location> bs=1024 seek=8 conv=fsync,notrunc

Good luck! Frans

Steven, I did install FC21 a few weeks ago. See an earlier post in this group.
This works like a charm, but FC21 does not yet support the sunxi gfx driver so there is GUI; one can only access the board through ssh or through a serial cable.

FC22 will be released on May 19. 2015. See for the schedule: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/22/Schedule
rawhide is the bleeding edge of Fedora; actually officially it is not even a beta.
The rawhide version does already support the sunxi gfx. I got a nice X gui (although startup was a bit slow, I used a x667 SDHC card, need to try from SATA or USB hard disk later)

Langoor, missed your message, serial will not be needed once this is completed.
(then again serial is only a few dollars on ebay)
I'm not far enough yet that I need beta testers, but I will announce when I do.
At that point serial will not be needed (but maybe you do need hdmi monitor and keyboard, still investigating if a headless system with ssh access only would be ok)

FYI: Fedora yesterday release the beta for FC22. I've been able to do a small test with it. HDMI is working;
I was able to boot and get the gui and use my keyboard.
Procedure to get it working is similar to what I posted before on the alpha, and for FC21.
Will provide details later.

No idea if the video is HW accelerated. Not even sure how I can find out.
But I did manage to boot several of the beta images; at the moment seeing if I can boot from a USB hard disk (don't have a decent sata disk handy)
