This reads very much like Freescale's wandboards. Look them up and compare. If so, use the Centos image for the Cubietruck, then dd the wandboard uboot and give that a try. 

Off hand, without doing some research, I do not know of any other Freescale based boards currently supportable with what we have inherited for the Fedora-arm project.

Hello All, 

this is my first post on this mailing list. 

In our organization we have just over 100 thinclients. One day I thought: wouldn't it be great if we could replace them with 
Rasberry Pi's? 

After experimenting with that I thought: this arm is great, cheap, silent and shiny new. 
So I was thinking: I need something stronger than the Rasberry Pi. Maybe I can replace some light servers as well. 

So I bought a Hummingboard Edge from Solidrun and had it shipped from Israel. The strongest model I could find. 
Here are the specs: 

Can anybody help me get Centos7 running on that? 
So far I tried the CentOS-Userland-7-armv7hl-Minimal-1511-RaspberryPi2.img.xz and the 
I haven't tested in any detail so far but both showed nothing on the screen. 

My ultimate goal would be to use Hummingboards with Centos7 on them as Ovirt or Kubernetes nodes. 

Thanks for any advise. 

Greetings, Johan 

Hello Fabian and Robert, 

thanks a million for the replies. I will follow that advise. 
If in the end it doesn't work, If I understand the documentation correctly, the cpu is swapable. 

I will also mail Solidrun and ask for some help. 

greetings, Johan
