    Phoronix: Fedora 37 To Offer Official Support On Raspberry Pi 4 Devices

    A month ago there was the Fedora 37 change proposal for Fedora to officially support the Raspberry Pi 4, including its accelerated Broadcom graphics and to better advertise Fedora for the Raspberry Pi. The Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee (FESCo) has now signed off on this "official" support for the Raspberry Pi 4...

        Just a chapter fedora project:

        🔗 How To Test
        • Buy a Raspberry Pi 4 (if you can)

        This is the situation: it is really difficult to find a raspberry on the market and the prices are too high.. sigh..

          How old is the Pi 4 now? And Fedora is just now saying they officially support them... Barn door. Horses. Gone.

          (I don't care about the politics on why.)

            Yeah, I thought Fedora's uniqueness was that they are always quick to support the latest & greatest in Linux land?

            Meanwhile, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS even supports the 2GB RAM version of the RPi4 by activating ZSWAP on it by default.

            And it even has the official blessing of the Raspberry Pi Foundation [what an honor! ]:

            “It’s great to see a certified Ubuntu Desktop release that includes support for the 2GB Raspberry Pi 4, giving developers all over the world access to the most affordable development desktop environment.”

              It’s still pretty generally the case that projects are targeting armhf for broader rpi compatibility.

              If you want an rpi4 optimised system you still quite often have to DIY depending on what you’re trying to do.

                Or, you know, could just take the easy route and install Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, which already delivers in the form of an ARM64 image optimized for the RPi4:

                  There's been an unofficial Fedora distribution for years. Why do you care about official support?

                    To be fair, it's not Fedora's fault - they were waiting for drivers to be upstreamed.
