UPDATE to F30. and Fixed acpi (see grub commandine below)
NVidia driver issues still persist, but I finally debugged (and disabled) acpi consistent errors that had be plaguing me in F27.
I added a kernel boot param to my Grub2 commandline.
use the following to fix grub
grubby --remove-args="acpi=off" --update-kernel /boot/vmlinuz-5.4.19-100.fc30.x86_64
grubby --set-default /boot/vmlinuz-5.4.19-100.fc30.x86_64
You can also remove a kernel from the grub menu with
You can also remove the actual kernels
rpm -qa kerneldnf remove kernel-5.5.16-100.fc30.x86_64

[FIXED] The Gnome Bluetooth GUI via settings FAILS to pair with my HP Bluetooth Laser Mobile Mouse. This has not worked in the gui bluetooth settings app for a few versions (maybe F19).The problem is that the mouse does NOT have a pair code, and the it won't pair with '0000' or '1234'.
I figured out to manually pair it from the commandline without a pairing code!
use bluetoothctl on the commandline
use the following commands to connect to the MAC address...

The latest rpm for google-earth is failing to install because a conflict with /usr/bin.
an easy re-build of the RPM fixed it... instructions here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1650497&postcount=27
then sudo yum localinstall /home/tgutwin/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/google-earth-stable-188.8.131.529-0.x86_64.rpm
It is now installed in /opt/google/earth/free/google-earth

It includes all the Fedora Yum RPM packages I had to install to get it to build from source - you might need others.Read More

I first tried noobs with Debian and it ran out of the noobs box very well. The noobs version of Fedora DID NOT because it was not built for the new version of the ARM processor in the Pi2. That was no big deal because thanks to user clivem on the Pi Forums an image was avaialble. See the forum link for the details. It is a full F21 version that is called FIDORA.
It was very easy to get this working. It is Fedora 21 for the ARM, with full yum repo support including rpmFusion.Read More

F17 has not moved fully to systemd (as doc'd on https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Systemd), so to change the default run level use the following commands:
Go to the non-graphical multi-user commandline bootup:
rm -f /etc/systemd/system/default.target;ln -s /lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target /etc/systemd/system/default.target
go to the full graphical bootup:
rm -f /etc/systemd/system/default.target;ln -s /lib/systemd/system/graphical.target /etc/systemd/system/default.targetRead More
