Apologies for top posting.

I've been using kraxel's AArch64 fedora 24 for a few weeks now and I really like it. Wifi just-works and it's nice and lightweight. One thing I have discovered is that the image seems to be built from the source rpm here:


(I needed source so I could build device-mapper and zfs modules).

best regards,
