    Question Fedora on ARM Chromebooks: Coreboot/Libreboot : ASUS Chromebook C201 Image

    Is anyone working on a Fedora on ARM image for Coreboot/Libreboot-Depthcharge? Specifically, ASUS Chromebook C201.
    I found these old instructions: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Archi...RM_Chromebooks

    There are a few issues with the instructions, but for the most part the idea works.

    For example the current Fedora ARM Workstation image can be found here (but it is for U-boot? not Coreboot/Depthcharge): https://arm.fedoraproject.org/

    The current "/" filesystem partition is bigger so 8GiB is needed verses 7GiB
    #
    Code:
     truncate --size=8G /var/tmp/chromebook-fedora.raw
    There is an issue with verified boot utilities and resigning Google's ChromeOS kernel, but I don't think that is a big issue.

    However, using the Google built ChromeOS kernel, the prepared image boots...but the display is black, as in doesn't work...

    Is there a Fedora Worskstation ARM Spin for Coreboot/Libreboot-Depthcharge?

    Or updated instructions to modify the main Fedora Workstation ARM image for Coreboot-Depthcharge?

    I have read that "Google has disabled CONFIG_VT in the kernel, in order to prevent the creation of consoles and the starting of Xorg from current stable." on another forum...don't know if this is the issue I am experiencing.
