Categories : Raspberry PI

The Fedora Remix is a distribution that includes software packages from the Fedora ARM project. The Windows installer can be used to download the image, decompress it and then write to an SD card.

The SD card image contains over 640 packages provoiding text and graphical interfaces, applications, programming languages and system tools. Some of the included software isn't normally available in the normal Fedora distribution which is why this release is called a "Remix".

There are a further 16,000 software packages available from the online Fedora ARM repositories which can be installed as appropriate.

Some of the applications included with the image include :

Python, Perl, Ruby, Bash, AbiWord, Gnumeric, GIMP and Firefox.
