Fresh Fedora 26 images uploaded

Fedora 26 is out of the door, and here are fresh fedora 26 images.

There are raspberry pi images. The aarch64 images requires a model 3, the armv7 image boots on both 2 and 3 models. Unlike the images for the previous fedora releases the new images use the standard fedora kernels instead of a custom kernel. So, the kernel update service for the older images will stop within the next weeks.

There are efi images for qemu. The i386 and x86_64 images use systemd-boot as bootloader. grub2 doesn’t work due to bug 1196114 (unless you create a boot menu entry manually in uefi setup). The arm images use grub2 as bootloader. armv7 isn’t supported by systemd-boot in the first place. The aarch64 versions throws an exception. The efi images can also be booted as container, using "systemd-nspawn --boot --image <file>", but you have to convert them to raw first.

The images don’t have a root password. You have to set one using "virt-customize -a <image> --root-password "password:<secret>", otherwise you can’t login after boot.

The images have been created with imagefish.
