Just a few moments ago, Fedora Project proudly announced that support for Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computers is finally coming to the Fedora linux operating system.

As you might know, the Beta of the upcoming Fedora 25 operating system has been released, and it brought numerous new GNU/Linux technologies and Open Source software projects, including, but not limited to Linux kernel 4.8, GNOME 3.22 desktop environment, KDE Plasma 5.8 LTS, and LibreOffice 5.2.2. One thing was missing though, and that's support for ARM devices like the popular Raspberry Pi.

"The most asked question I’ve had for a number of years is around support of the Raspberry Pi. It’s also something I’ve been working towards for a very long time on my own time. The eagle-eye watchers would have noticed we almost got there with Fedora 24, but I got pipped at the post because I felt it wasn’t quite good enough yet. There were too many minor issues around ease of use," says Peter Robinson.

Getting started with Fedora 25 Beta on Raspberry Pi

Right now, hardware support for Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computers in Fedora 25 Beta is pretty decent, and the same, which means that you won't get support for Raspberry Pi 3's Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies just yet. But they are coming in the final release of the operating system, which should hit the streets next month, on November 15, 2016.

To see what will be supported and what not, as well as to get started with installing the Fedora 25 Beta operating system on your Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi 3 devices, we strongly recommend reading Peter Robinson's in-depth story , as well the Raspberry Pi wiki page at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Raspberry_Pi .
