Pidora is a Linux software distribution for the Raspberry Pi computer. It contains software packages from the Fedora project compiled for the ARMv6 architecture used on the Raspberry Pi, packages which have been specifically written for or modified for the Raspberry Pi, and software provided by the Raspberry Pi Foundation for device access.

It is the fifth remix of Fedora for the Pi, but the first to make use of Fedora 18’s new support for the ARMv6 architecture used by ARM11 processors. As a result, performance is claimed to be improved over the earlier ARMv5 version.

Pidora is a Fedora Remix optimized for the Raspberry Pi computer.

What is a Fedora Remix?
A Fedora Remix is a combination of Fedora software, with or without third-party software, that any community member can create at any time. You can use a Fedora Remix to:

  • Target a specific hardware platform like a netbook, router, or other device
  • Provide an appropriate combination of software for a specific interest group, like artists, musicians, software developers, educators, craftsmen, …
  • Demonstrate a layered product using the Fedora platform as the underlying operating system
  • Build a portable, bootable environment for a classroom
  • Offer promotional materials to customers inside a fully customizable OS
    Or any of countless other applications…
