PS: wellcome to testing


@hyphop any plans to make VIM4 script ? :slightly_smiling_face:

yes we have this idea but for vim4 need replace original fedora kernel and gpu packages what no so easy and need time

PS: at this moment u can play your self and replace it by hands a test how its works

Cool, i tried to install manually by talking a look at the normal script made for vim3.

I took into account that oowow was in the spi flash and didn’t overwrite it but forgot to check GPU packages.

I will test it some more later and post back here.

Thanks a lot @Electr1 . Are you maintaining this script now? and further is there a way i can install this fedora on an SDCARD or USB as I already have a running OS (Manjaro on EMMC) but want to try some things in Fedora.

I am using mainline uboot on emmc so it always boots to USB if it detects an OS there and if not, it goes to my normal EMMC OS.

Your help is much appreciated.

PS. Also wouldnt there be needed some more changes here?

Hello hyphop,

Thank you for sharing this information!
