[HOWTO] Fedora, openSUSE or Arch Linux on Jetson TK1

Jetson TK1 comes with Unity desktop on Ubuntu Linux, but there are many other options. We’ve posted new tutorials for installing Fedora, openSUSE and Arch Linux distributions (plus a minimal XFCE desktop) on Jetson TK1.

See the full list of Jetson TK1 distributions at http://elinux.org/Jetson_TK1#Linux_distributions_running_on_Tegra

The instructions for Fedora are missing the contents for /usr/bin/nvidia-tegra-init-script, as well as the instruction to add the user to the video group.

Update: openmpi did not work on Fedora 20, but after upgrading the TK1 to Fedora 22, it works well. It was also important to replace the USB firmware file with xsub_sil_rel_fw-test, as USB had never worked well previously.
