Fedora 37 New Proposal: Official Support for Raspberry Pi 4



Fedora 37 New Proposal: Official Support for Raspberry Pi 4

The Raspberry Pi 4 has been popular since its launch in 2019, but its default system has always been Debian, which is not officially supported by Fedora Linux.

But recently, a proposal for Fedora 37 suggests that Fedora may offer official support for the popular development board.

According to foreign media Phoronix , Raspberry Pi 4 has previously solved server and IoT needs with Fedora Arm, but this is not the main goal of Fedora Workstation on Raspberry Pi 4, desktop Fedora is.

But the Raspberry Pi 4 was never officially supported by Fedora Linux due to a lack of accelerated graphics support and missing features upstream.

But now, support for the Raspberry Pi ecosystem has been evolving as the upstream Linux kernel and Mesa work together to provide graphics improvements for the Raspberry Pi 4.

Fedora developer Peter Robinson has proposed a proposal to add official support to the Raspberry Pi 4: The goal of this proposal is to provide more “official” support for Fedora Linux on Raspberry Pi 4B/400/CM4 hardware, and to diffuse that support into Raspberry Pi3 series and Zero2W.

At present, the upstream open source graphics driver supports OpenGL (ES) and Vulkan for Raspberry Pi very well, and the support for wired network, WiFi, and audio is also good.

Fedora mainly supports and optimizes other functions.
