Linux on ARMThe MK802 is a mini PC that’s about the size of a chunky USB flash drive. While it ships with Android 4.0 software, the little computer can run a range of operating systems.

We’ve already seen several versions of Ubuntu Linux and Puppy Linux ported to run on the MK802, and now the folks at Miniand have released a disk image of Fedora 17 that can run on the tiny PC.


The Fedora 17 image uses the light-weight Xfce desktop environment which is designed to run well on computers that don’t have bleeding-edge processors or huge amounts of RAM.

That’s a good thing, because the MK802 has an Allwinner A10 ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 4GB of storage, and 512MB to 1GB of RAM. It’s not exactly a speed demon.
