New Fedlet build (finally)!

Yup, I finally got around to putting together a new build of Fedlet, my Fedora remix for Intel Bay Trail tablets like the Dell Venue 8 Pro, Asus T100, Lenovo Miix 2 and others.

The new build has a current Fedora 21 userland and a 3.16 kernel, which brings some substantial hardware support improvements. Check out all the details over at the Fedlet page and grab the new release if you like.

The github repo has been updated to match the new build.

    You are AWESOME!

    DD’d the iso straight to a thumbdrive and it booted on my Dell 11 Pro (baytrail version not the i3). I have the attachable keyboard and its trackpad works, though keyboard doesn’t. Overall … thanks so very much.

    Now to see if dual boot works.

    I’m unfortunately having difficulty getting this installed on my Asus T100, looks like it lacks the efibootmgr package.

    I note it now works with the mmcblk0rpmb problems which is great. This is my experience:

    – Boots up in ~1.5 minutes to desktop. Dropping from the graphical boot indicates some “mmcblk0rpmb” errors, only as far as 50 seconds from boot
    – Anaconda runs fine and proceeds up to and past “Installing Software (100%)”
    – It fails half way through “Installing bootloader”

    Looking in the stacktrace it has the line “File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/bootloader.py”, line 1695, in remove_efi_boot_target”

    Further down I think is the issue: “00:17:55,168 ERR program: Error running efibootmgr: No such file or directory”

    I tried running efibootmgr and it is indeed not installed, yum install efibootmgr and yum provides efibootmgr return nothing. Having a google round I note it’s only available on F20 in 64-bit flavours: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=539242
