Hi Phil, Are you implying that, in your opinion, QEMU (say 5.2) should somehow provide compatibility with Fedora 31 because it was used during the entire cycle? I sympathize with that, but, QEMU is not really advertising compatibility support with specific Linux Distros, is it? And, assuming that the issues I found on the Fedora 33 aarch64 image can not be worked around, would you suggest not moving to 32? I mean, I don't see a reason why QEMU shouldn't be able to use at least Fedora 32, which is a currently *active* version (different from 31). Thanks, - Cleber.
